RS #56 ~ Sending a Hug!

Hi there peeps I hope everyone is having a good day! With temps in the low 30s and some snow still on the ground I needed a pick me up card. I reached for my favorite paper collection (MME: Lavender) and chose the latest Retrosketches challenge as my inspiration.


I've used the DeNami berry vine stamp on my hand cut banner along with button twine and a tiny button. Layered Spellbinders: labels 10 hold my Amuse sentiment adorned with buttons, pearls and itty bitty punched MS butterflies. I do love this dreamy little card and it sure perks up this blah spring day. Can someone please tell me just where spring is!!??!! I seriously think the groundhog is holding it hostage somewhere!!!


I'm so happy you took a moment to stop by today, blessings! ~Lisa

Oh, this card is such a balm for the eyes--gorgeous soft colors everywhere!! Yes, just the sort of pick-me-up that I need on these drab, not-yet-spring days. :)

Yes, where oh where has spring gone? If you find it, please let me know!!!

What a lovely encouragement card! I love the colors and those tiny butterflies (I think I have that punch too!), and your subtle shading adds so much.

Despite being probably 300 miles south of you we are getting pretty much the same weather, and I for one am tired of it! Getting cabin fever...

So, so pretty. I love the soft, vintage look of this, with these gorgeous papers. Love that little banner wrapped in twine and button at the top, and the labels frame. The buttons are so pretty! Another beauty. ;-)
