Retro Sketches #3 & Happy Birthday, Kim!

As you may have noticed, this year I have become part of two very awesome groups of women who share the same love of stamping with me. Well, one of those talented ladies is Kim, and its her birthday!! Joyce (another member) has put together a very special blog hop to surprise Kim, and asked me to be a part of it :) I was delighted! So Kim, here's your birthday card!

I used this sketch from Retro Sketches #3:

Okay, don't you just LOVE this little gator?! He's from Paper Smooches Zoo Crew. The sentiments are from PS Sentiment Sampler. The patterned paper is all from the Pink Paislee Nantucket pack.

The ribbon and cardstock are from PTI.

Now I bet you're excited to see all the other awesome cards that were created for our friend, Kim, so start on the hop by clicking the links, below, and don't forget to stop and give Kim some love on her special day :)
