Happy Retirement


Happy happy Friday!  I'm doing the Friday happy dance for sure!  I'm typing this post after just returning from the Cincinnati Reds game.  It was a gorgeous night out and we had amazing tickets in the front row right next to third base.  Best seats I've ever had.  The Reds bats were out with an 11 to 1 win.  Of course, the highlight of our night was getting on the jumbo tron.  Nothing like my friend, Katie, making me laugh and singing "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" to get us on the jumbo tron for a few seconds.  We think we were the pity vote for getting up there (the over 40 crowd!!)

Sorry for the tangent!  I love this CAS sketch by Laurie at Retro Sketches.  Perfect quick and easy card for a long-time client contact at work that is retiring. I'll be using this sketch again soon!

Ooh Lynn this is perfect and makes me want to use all those flowers! (I have some molds and one day I made about fifty of them out of sculpy clay!)

Wonderful card Lynn. Love the patterned papers. I can totally see you getting on the jumbo tron for having a good time. At first I thought you were going to say it was a "kiss-cam" featuring you and Pat:)

Sounds like an awesome night! Would you believe I've never been to a baseball game? Sad isn't it?

Your card, however, is anything but sad. Love the purple flower paired with the yellow paper!

I'm afraid the baseball scoring went over my head but sounds like a great evening out :0)
Super simple card, love the double flag banner and tied twine :0)
