I'm having a lovely Mother's Day with the kiddos...
My Lil' chef Anisha made breakfast for me,
Anushka got me a  Lawn Fawn Stamp set
and the girls made some lovely cards for me, took me out for LUNCH and bought me my favorite...
...Lindt Extra Dark Chocolate Truffles 
Coffee Ice Cream!!!

They also asked me to have some crafty time, so I made a card,
Its a last minute entry for Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge using Retro Sketches new Sketch.

I so want the PS -Wicked Nauticool stamp set before I could order it this Nautical theme challenge came up so I used some Old PS sets and the new Anchor die.
Stamp Sets used :  Potpourri & Smoocheroos.
The Timeless Twine Natural baker's twine was perfect for creating a rope look.
Also added some Studio Calico Wood Veneer shapes.
I give the cardbase a bead board look I scored it using Martha Stewart scoreboard.

This card is for the following challenge..
PS- Sparks challenge: Trend Watch.

Retro Sketches: Sketch#63
