Yay, it’s Friday!  A tad late today but I made it….a sinus headache is making me a bit slower this week!  I am squeaking in this little notecard just in time for the RetroSketches deadline:

And really, I was just sort of playing around with the new canvas that SU has in the mini, along with an upcoming SAB set called Bloomin’ Marvelous:


Remember, this is notecard size, so the proportions are a little smaller.  I had a snippet of Calypso Coral ruffled ribbon that I wanted to use, and even though the DP from Summer Smooches is Tangerine Tango, I thought they blended well.  I cut my panel from the Apothecary Accents dies, hand-cut the canvas and stitched a few little stitches, then added the ribbon & button (also available as through SAB)!  And if you look closely, you can see where I did some heat embossing in white with the leaf image from the same set on the body of the card:



It adds a nice touch without distracting from the focal point….which conveys how I feel about all my readers… ARE bloomin’ marvelous!  I love having you visit me!


Cassidy is learning to put on her boots “by self”:


She can do it, too!  Those little loops are they key!  Have a bloomin’ marvelous day!

Love your card. That white and orange are just perfection. Love the banner with that sentiment.

This is so sweet, LeAnne! Pretty colors! I want some boots like that.

LeAnne what a great card, love the fabric and ribbon treatment. I agree with Bonnie I need some boots like Cassidy has, especially today!

Such a pretty and cheerful card. A good reminder that Spring will come as we sit here in the middle of a blustery "storm warning" day. Love this Calypso Coral (and Tangerine Tango) beauty.
Good for Cassidy to be trying and succeeding in doing "by self". She is growing up.
Sure hope you feel better soon.
