Retro Sketch #21
This week's Retro Sketch was a fun one - love tags on cards :) I combined it with CR84FN's challenge as the colour combo was delicious and wanted to play around with it (needless to say it had me thinking about using a maple leaf but I refrained as we are enjoying summer too much!).
A wonderful scrap of SEI paper was my starting point for the card along with MFT's tag die. I used a few few dies from my discard/use on another card basket and that always brings a smile to my face. The little pile has grown in to a small basket and seems to continue growing exponentially compliments of my having to actually place an element on a card before I know if I like it/it works on the card (never mind the colour options of that element LOL). Unfortunately, the same goes for furniture placement in the house...ugh...yes, I am visually challenged which makes me have to work harder to get things set up but the satisfaction I get once it works out is worth the hassle - most of the time anyway!
We are off to our Nexus interview today and then to the pool. Love being able to see the progress in the lap swimming. Stamina is growing and it is fun to push myself to see how much more I can do. Mind you, it does make for one tired mommy in the middle of the afternoon LOL!
Chlorinated hugs to you all :)
