Chattin' Retro Style!!

Big Hello's to You All this fabulous Saturday in March!  Hope your weekend is off to a swell start!  My mom is in town visiting and we had an GORGEOUS day of weather in VA yesterday.  It was high 70's with a light breeze and sunny blue skies--my kind of weather.  We have all the windows open and it's so nice to get the house aired out after a long, brutal winter!  We spent most of the day and evening outside on our patio.  We grilled out and then had dessert in front of our outdoor fireplace. We're hoping to get lots of enjoyment out there this year and on Sunday we are going to pick out a few trees and shrubs for the landscaping around the patio.  I can't wait to get my hands in the dirt and plant our garden and fill all of our outdoor pots with beautiful flowers---I just love the greens and pretty colors that spring brings.  Totally energizes me and makes me so HAPPY!  Today we are going shoe shopping (hee hee) and then out to lunch as a treat and maybe have a movie night as well.  So I hope you all are enjoying some awesome family time as well!  I'll see you back here on Monday with a fun Magnolia-licious Blog Hop!

Chattin Retro Style!

If you missed out seeing the new Retro Style stamps from Victoria Case for SCACD, then you are MISSING out, LOL!  These images are so much fun & just make ya smile :)  I did a Mrs. Cleaver project HERE using another one of these cuties!  This image is called "Call Me"--I love her style and fun phone.  Do you remember using those phones? I sure do and I remember trying to stretch the cord as FAR AWAY from my family and into the bedroom as I could until I finally got my own phone when I was 13, lol---ahh the memories.  Nowadays kids wouldn't know what to do with a phone like this, hee hee!

I picked my fun color scheme from these awesome new BoBunny papers called "Ad Lib" which seem to be made just for this image!  I love the retro style and colors of these papers and I totally played off of those.  I cut rings using my different shaped Spellbinders Circle Dies and scattered them around---I always think rings/circles are very retro.  I added a bow with a button topper and the lil' fun sentiment is from an older Hannah Stamps set--so perfect!

And yep this cutie is colored with Copics: BG45,BG43,BG10/YR18,YR15,YR12,YR00/Y06,Y02,Y00/E11,E00/E25,E50,E31.  I added stardust Stickles to her top, bow and shoes for bling and some Smooch Ink to the phone for some metallic shine on the dialer.

Hope this card brightened up your day and I'll see you back here on Monday!  Enjoy your weekend!
