Pink & Green and Oh So Many Memories.....

This is the sketch Laura offered up over at 2 Sketches 4 You this week......I know I keep saying it.....but I just LOVE Laura's and Kazan's hand drawn sketches!!!!!
For my card.....I used some of the "Cottage Kit" from SweetArts Paperie......the whole kit it all pinks, greens and oh so much YUMMINESS!!!!! Isn't this the sweetest little house....it's felt and it came in the kit too!!!
I made a ribbon flower for the door knob and then added a little bit of this really cool trim I found at M's.....so sweet.....pink and green is really one of the sweetest combos of color I can think of......it always reminds me of my Honeymoon.....we stayed at the Arlington Hotel in Hot Springs Arkansas.....the whole interior was antiques and all the furniture and drapery was in shades of pinks and greens......BEAUTIFUL I tell ya!!!! A little bit of useless trivia for you.....I was born and raised in Mineral Wells, Texas....where my Mama and Brother still live......and in MW we have The Baker Hotel.....the Arlington was built to resemble the Baker....how cool and ironic is that????
Well, that's about it for now....be sure to go check out 2S4Y and join in on the fun....there are prizes to be had......fun stuff!!!! I'm going back to craft some more goodies for my United Way contribution at work next week.....I'll post those for you to see.....probably next week....I've got lots to do!!!! Have a glorious Saturday......HUGS!!!!

Pin It!
