CTD #290- I love you!!

Hey, Hey, Hey.... it's Wednesday and time for some new Color Throwdown colors. This week Tammy is bringing us a pyrex "blast from the past"- love the colors and actually still use some pyrex!!

Well, actually these could be the real thing or could be reproductions... retro is in my friends!!

My card...

I went pretty CAS here using this week's Viva la Verve sketch. The heart was die cut with Verve's Jotted Heart die- thinking I will always love this die! The sentiment is from Take Note- love the font and tiny lines in the "LOVE". The papers are We R Memory Keepers washi sheets (yes, those are washi sheets!)

This is the last installment with my sweet, sweet, friend Jeanne Jachna from A Kept Life!! So glad you played with us this month!!

And, Teresa Kline is joining us this week as the Featured Star Stamper... always love looking at her creations!!
