Happy Thursday, everyone!  Wow, this week is zipping by!  I have had these little elements sitting on my desk, unused, for a few weeks now.  I was going to use them on another project but changed my mind.  I finally put them to use for a baby shower card I need for this weekend, and the RetroSketches sketch was inspiration.  Here it is:

and here’s the card:


Images are from Every Little Bit, stamped in Stazon and colored with markers and a blender pen; sentiment is from Baby Bundle.  BG paper is from MME’s Nostalgia line.  I also promised to show you some pictures from my upline meeting; I mostly got pix of cards and projects, and only one of my upline Pennie:


She did an amazing amount of work to get this ready, and brought it all from Washington state to Pennsylvania!  Over the next few days, I’ll show you a few cards & projects.  This is a fabric-covered pumpkin, which sent me scurrying to find that pumpkin I know I have in my craft room somewhere:


And this adorable clothespin wreath was made by my incredibly talented friend Barbara:


and this is her swap card, which she gave me even though I ran out of mine:


Oh my gosh…it’s just beautiful!  Puts my CAS little swap to shame! 

And finally, a shot of Cassidy….we have her pool drained and almost ready to go into storage, but she still likes to play in the rainwater it caught:



Be sure to stop by tomorrow when I’ll have my shabby-ribbon tutorial for you!

Well, I can't keep up with commenting on your cards - you are too fast for me;)
This baby card is so sweet. I like the little tab and the way you've tucked the sentiment panel under the banner.
Sad that the pool has to be put away for now isn't it? These pictures of Cassidy are so cute.
