ok we got some time for a challenge and I love the one we picked ...
Retro Sketches Challenge  #133
this challenge was fun to do ...
and it was fun going through all of Barb's paper's and things
took me forever to found the paper
and the butterflies you see on the card
are cut out of paint chips 
now on our journey of having fun
Barb picked up this awesome envelope maker
and this is the one she made to go with my card 
she matched the color perfect

thank so much ...

                Was chatting to my SIL Barb last night she was working some cards and gave me the idea to look around and create a card to so here it is
It is what they call a spinner card the little van you see spins from side to side
in the that curve slot you can see.
Friends are moving and I wanted to create a card for them
I flocked the clouds with white and the trees with green
I printed the layout of house on to the card then did another copy
so I could colorand raise the houses.
this is Marlene and Bob in their van with some boxes and heading to their new home.
Again van is from a coloring page and I colored.
We have had a chance to visit the grandkids up north
one of my grand daughters likes to make cards ..
so when I got home I put together a box of stuff for card making and sent it up.
Here is her first 2 cards with some of the stuff...
birthday cards for her cousins

 good start Jordy them
