Retro Sketches #46

I have to start by saying how much I LOVED the sketch over at RetroSketches this week! This pattern is one I definitely want to use again and again.I love how this one can be used as CAS or it could be layered up, too. Versatility is always good.

I decided to go with the Valentine theme and pulled out a lingering piece of BoBunny patterned paper. It's "lingered" so long, I can't even remember the name of the collection. And that's not like me. Of course, considering the week I've had --(accidents, clumsiness, and forgetfulness galore! -- my personal "favorite" is the bag of Corn Meal I almost sat on fire last night! I'm not kidding. It had to be thrown out [a brand new bag!] and the kids had to help me fan the doors to get the smoke out of the house before the smoke detectors went off AND BEFORE Big Daddy came home. EEKS! Unfortunately, there was no hiding that smell. I had to "corn-fess" before he even got in the back door.) Wow - that was a bigger sidebar than I originally intended.

Where was I? Oh yes. The solid cardstock is all CTMH. My stamp set is from PaperSmooches (Sentiment Sampler -- another versatile addition to any card makers stash.) Once again, I used some of my Silver Shimmer Tape, also used here and here. Versatility is the word of the day.

Thanks for visiting my blog! Hopefully I'll remember how to link this up properly.  ---Don't laugh. That was an issue yesterday. I'm not kidding.

Wow -- edited link -- I guess I needed to prove my own point, because I published this post with NO picture of my card! I even "previewed" the post 3 times before hitting "publish".   I'm a little fearful about fixing supper tonight. Pizza delivery may be the safest option!
