Let's Play!

Hey friends!  I've been dying to use some more of my goodies that I got for Christmas and haven't cracked open yet.  This stamp set from Paper Smooches is one of them, and this patterned paper is some that I have been hoarding for an embarassingly long time.  Sometimes it feels so good to just dive in and start cutting it!  Here's what I came up with:

This woodgrain is the backside of the yellow pattern I haven't been able to part with and I like how it looks like they might be coming from their separate yards to hang out and play :).  It's been way too long since I've played at Retro Sketches and I thought I'd join in for the first time over at Fusion.  It was their inspiration photo that made me finally dig into my yellow and gray hoarder pile.  And of course the Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge where this week Anything Goes.

Update: a bit of exciting news... I'm having my first giveaway.  The Simon Says Stamp February Card Kit!  Become a follower and check back Monday for all the details! 

Thanks for looking, keep it crafty!
