Retro Sketches #27 and H2H MiniCard

Howdy. Hope everyone survived the return to reality after a beautiful holiday off on Monday! My family made it pretty good today. Kids didn't want to get out of bed, but that is nothing new, I can assure you. They make me look almost perky in the mornings; I can assure you, that is not the case! Not at all.

I enjoyed my holiday with crafty time in my Fortress of Solitude. It was a nice day and I made a few cards - it was "the most fun".

For this card, I combined the Retro Sketch with H2H's Mini Card Challenge posted on Labor Day.

The paper is from last year's Mischief  paper packet and I was proud of myself for finding it a Non-Halloween use. (I am really working to let go of my "all-things-Halloween-are-fantabulous-obsession". I know it's unhealthy - I've admitted that. Step 1 - CHECK!)
The stamp set is from the November Word Puzzle (retired) and I colored it with Generals' Chalk Pencils, then smoothed with my CTMH Blending Pen. Cocoa ink was used for the sentiment and the beautiful crinkly ribbon is from My Craft Spot. Two brown brads to finish out the package and Voila! Card complete.
My card size 4x4 square and all paper edges were sanded prior to adhering.
Thanks for stopping  by and visiting. I hope you've had a wonderful beginning to your week and it will finish out the same.
