on your special day!!

Combined the WPlus9 Monday Mood Board with this week's Retrosketch and made a fun little card!!


Not sure I will "evah" get tired of the Fresh Cut Florals and coordinating dies from WPlus9!! The stitched circles were created with Lil Inkers dies and the checked background {using SU crumbcake- stamped off every other row} uses WPlus9's Country Charm.

The sketch...

Dawn's Monday Mood Board...
 
I went with the colors {added crumbcake} and the flowers. 

Checking the weather... we've been having a "boatload" of rain here in NC and it's getting in the way of cruising/chilling at the lake {well for some of us- and for others... in the way of skiing, tubing, and wakeboarding} but, it looks like this WE will be sunny!! My daughter and I were discussing tonite- we bought this great big ole' lounge {10 x 16} for those of us to lounge/relax/get sun/swim while the others are skiing, tubing, wakeboarding!! Just blow it up and anchor it- we're good to go!!

Hope you're having a great start to the week!! Thanks for stopping by!! Love when you do and appreciate all the kind words!!

You did a great job using that sketch and I'm loving the stitched cicles -- another wish list item for sure! That periwinkle seam binding is fabulous too!!

Loving the idea of the lounge in the water - mind you I'd also love to do some waterskiing LOL! Cheers to some sunshine finally showing up!
