retrosketches #26

Things are quiet here now.  For about ten days, our kids and grandkids spent varying amounts of time with us, helping us celebrate my husband's birthday.  It was wonderful, absolutely wonderful!  Nothing like family filling the house with love!  Sure got a kick out of hearing "grandma..." from small voices.  We spent this past Saturday at a beautiful park for the big party -- had great food, fun, and I hired an incredible photographer to help preserve the memories.  Will post photos sometime later.  It all went too fast.
I am back into some sort of routine, and have made a birthday card for one of our sons.  I decided to play along with Retro Sketches #26 because I loved the sketch.

All cardstock is Bazzill.  The HB is from CTMH Rustic Alphabet, and the ink is Night of Navy from SU.  I cut the various sized labels using Cricut's Just Because Cards cartridge.  Patterned papers are Teresa Collins Everyday Moments (love, love, love this line!!!), and the bling is from a stash of leftovers.  Oh, and I scored the strip of navy every quarter inch, folded it, and fixed it to a base of white.  The one thing I really need to get is a better camera with which to photograph my cards (& grandkids)!
