I love you sew much...

Good morning and Happy New Year! I hope that you all had a fabulous time being with family and friends these last couple of weeks. (I know I did!)

So without further ado, here is my first card creation of 2013:

and the inside:

I'm entering this for 3 challenges: Retro Sketch #44, Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger: Sweet Dreams, and Paper Smooches Sparks challenge: Anything Goes Here is the sketch and color inspiration:


I so want this as my bedroom! Love the serene, beachy feel to it! That pop of plum in the rug just sets off the soft teal and yellow perfectly. Love love love it!

Well, there you have it. My first card of the year! Off to do some vacuuming now. Whoever coined the phrase "The only thing constant is change" obviously never cleaned a house! Housework is ALWAYS constant!! LOL!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!

Chris ☺
