Hi peeps!  I hope everyone is enjoying their holidays!  I have really, really relaxed lately, but I was itching to get back into my craft room and play with some of the new goodies that will be in the upcoming spring mini.  I just love the colors that are in this Retro Fresh DP:


I used a sentiment from a new set called Love You To the Moon, with its matching Chalk Talk die, and the button and banner are made from Retro Fresh This & That washi tape:


I used the Craft Project Central sketch 30 as well:

and I stuck to it pretty well; the card is 4 1/4” square but I can see this sketch being used for larger ones as well!  And a nice thing about Craft Project Central, they have a mini tutorial for this card and they give you all the measurements!   Here’s the inside, using the arrow stamps from Geometrical and a sentiment from Four You:

This card makes me smile!

I will be sharing a few Christmas pictures soon, but I wanted to share with you Cassidy’s big gift from us; we had it covered with a blanket next to the tree and she walked around the room several times and didn’t even notice it:

She HAD to climb up the back (in her pink cowboy boots) to get on the seat of this cherry red Radio Flyer tricycle:

and finally managed to get on it!  Not much room to ride it in our small house, so as soon as we can, we’ll take it to Grampy’s garage to ride around!


Enjoy your day!
