Gotta love the color blue

My cards both use some shades of blue, always a fun color.

 First up I wanted to use the retro sketch for this week along with my super brand new Simon Says Stamp stamps!!! I just feel in love with this cute little house. I pulled out my BasicGrey Aspen Frost mini pad of papers. These papers are meant for Christmas/winter but I knew I needed to get more use from then then just one season.
 The two label shapes are cut with the Cricut. The stamp set comes with a couple doors to stamp and a couple windows plus the cut cloud outline and some sentiments. It was just made for stamping on patterned paper.
 This is the retro sketch, I just turned it.
 My next card uses some wonderful paper tapes from Recollections and a great stamp sentiment from Verve stamps.
 Are these tapes yummy!
 The pretty border is a punch and I just love this sentiment set that is a few different sentiments that can be the focus of a card.
And for a couple fun photos...
 We have had a fair amount of rain lately and I caught a glimpse of the rain drops on my plants while looking out my kitchen window.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
