RS, CCC & SSS ~ Celebrate!

How has your week been? We started out with a drizzly rain this morning, then sleet and then a bit of snow. I've been hearing sirens in the distance, I have a feeling the roads are super slick. Hope everyone has a safe commute home today.

Have you seen this week's Retro Sketches? It's super cute and I've paired it up with the cue word at CASology ~ Birthday. Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge is Anything Goes so I'll play along there too!


Many thoughts came to mind for the scalloped part in the sketch. A paper doily, die cut doily, dry embossing, something stamped. But I finally decided to layer up a couple of PPP die cut borders. The layered banners from the sketch became layered RS tags. The focal tag is stamped with the cute DeNami Design Happy Monster. Isn't he a fun little fella!! The balloon & his eyes have Ranger Glossy Accents added to them. I forgot about the sentiment being on the front banner. So I had to go little and get creative since I didn't want to redo! This little celebrate by A Muse fit perfectly and I think it works!

I'm happy you spent a bit of time with me today. Be blessed friends ~Lisa

Hope you are staying warm and safe inside. We started getting a wintery mix at dismissal today. Doesn't make for a fun drive for sure.

Actually, Lisa, don't you just love where the sediment ended up? It fits so perfectly, it looks like it was even part of the stamp critter! And, yes, omg, what an adorable critter! I can't get over how much impact the swirling stitched cuts have, balanced perfectly with the two dots! What an eye for design you have! I know, I prolly say it every time, but even with the sketch as a guide, you have a wonderful kanack for design!! Hugs, Darnell
