RS #48 ~ Wishing You the Best!

I can not believe this is the last day of January...will someone please tell me where this month went!! It's cold and blustery outside...brrrr. It was trash day today so there are several trash cans blowing up and down the street. Max is not very happy with the rumbly noise they are making poor baby! Before I brave the cold to make a quick run to the puppy store as we call it to get Max's food and treats (can't run out of those treats!), I thought I would get my crafty on and make a card. This one is for Retrosketches.


I used up several scraps from some MME paper on my 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" card.  Then I die cut a portion of a SB labels 10 die along with a PTI flower fusion #10. I just love this flower! My sentiment is from a PTI tag-its #3 set and will work for many occasions. My favorite vintage cream ribbon fitted with a vintage safety pin and an OA button. Cute, quick and simple! 


Okay I've put it off long enough I'm off to run a couple of errands in the cold! ~Lisa

Yes, windy here too! In the 70's yesterday and cold and blustery today! Go figure! We may have snow sometime tonight and tomorrow morning! I sure wish Mother Nature would make up her mind!
