I kept is simple with this image from Belles N Whistles stamps. I was so sorry when they closed their store.

Retro Sketches #111

Thursday Mojo was strong. I had very little time, but I got two cards done for Retro sketches. I was on a roll and very happy.  Even though the sketch looked like a square card, I opted to do regular size for ease of use.

Here are my two cards for Retro Sketches #111,

I created a tag using PTI tag die and then just added it to the card base. I just love this idea. When I have time I can create a bunch of tags that can be added to a gift bag, gift or even a card :))

For this 2nd card, I used this cute dog image from Inky Antics and then added a PTI Sentiment and also some buttons and cute dog pattern paper.

Hope you liked the cards...:)) Here is the retro Sketch #111,

Happy Snowman

Happy Wedneseday, Half the week is already over. :)) I have been busy working on some projects. I am here to share the card that I did for Seize the Sketch Challenge #18.

I am still in love with Frozen Theme and found this cute little snow man on Ms Kate's Cuttables website. He is not Olaf, but I thought he was cute. So I did Print and cut in Silhouette and then just kept the card simple following the sketch. I printed the sentiment from computer and just punched it with a 1 1/4 inch circle punch.

Here is the sketch,

Pink Scooter Valentine

Hi Friends, The week is almost coming to an end. I will still share my PL pages here but I will try to combine weeks. It will be a bit more photo heavy, but easier for me.

I kept the card simple with the image taking up the spotlight. I used some bright Pink Gingham paper from PTI and some small paper roses from Michaels. All in all, a super simple card, but I loved all the pink and red happening on the card.
