Retreo Sketches #74 ~ I See The Moon...!

Hey there peeps! It's the last Saturday in July and that means my final card guesting as the July Headliner with Retro Sketches. I have had the BEST time this month and I want to thank Arielle once again for having me!!! Today I'm sharing a sweet creation based on a sketch using one of Kasia's cards.


My mom told years ago that my dad would use this little saying ~ I see the moon and the moon sees me, God bless the moon and God bless me. We were in one of the shops on Mackinac Island at the time, when we saw a pottery plaque with the verse. She said "Your dad says that all of the time." And of course I said "Mom, you have to get that for him!" And she did!! 


When I saw this adorable stamp set by Rubbermoon, first I couldn't believe my eyes and second I knew I needed to get them for him. (Well really for me hee!!!) He has a birthday coming up and this will be the perfect card! I paired them up with some October Afternoon paper and a pair of Amuse die cut sparkly clouds. The moon is popped up with foam tape.


Thanks so much for stopping by friends. I hope you'll find some time to play along with Retro Sketches this week!! Have a wonderful weekend~Lisa

Oh my gosh, I have those words stenciled in what was the Nursery, and is now Kerry's bedroom! She refuses to let us update her room and paint over my words. How sweet is that? She is 11! I never saw this stamp before. I LOVE what you have done with it. :)

I love the glowing stars and the tiny stars by the buttons! Very sweet!
