Too Kind Retrosketch Card

TGIF stamping friends, oh it has been chilly in the mornings as I sit her in my jams but I guess the warm temps are going to come back next week. I hope so as the tomatoes aren't doing so good in this cool weather we have been having.   
Yesterday morning I picked all these apples at the farm, yes a ton of them. I can't get to my recipes since they are somewhere in my storage unit so I printed one off for apple pie filling but it was the freezer kind. My laptop wouldn't work at Irv's and I forgot my battery charger for my phone so I didn't want to run that down either by checking on the web so I thought oh heck I will just start cutting them up and freeze them. I did 2 quarts was all as I ran out of lemon juice and no vinegar to be found. Forget the apple job   and on to fixing supper for us.  I  wasn't very organized to say the least so will have to try this weekend.  I talked to my friend last night and got the recipe I was looking for so now I can be more organized.  Just too much on my plate I guess but I did manage to stamp this card yesterday morning. YAY!

My dear BFF has her birthday today, so this is her card and didn't it turn out pretty? I used the sketch for the Retrosketch this week which I just loved. I have wanted to use this set for a bit but haven't gotten it out. I love it though. I used Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive Ink and just stamped off on my scratch paper for the first layer of color and then full strength on the top layer of the flowers.  

Here is the recipe:
Stamp Sets: Too Kind, Label Love
Card Stock & Papers: Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White, Old Olive, Brights DSP 
Inks: Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive
 Tools and Accessories: Decorative Label Punch, Artisan Label Punch

I hope you have a terrific Friday and I hope to be back sometime this weekend. I am getting excited about my trip to Ohio next week to see a good friend I met at Convention one year. I love this Stampin' Up! job. 
Let me know if you have any questions about my card.  
Off to get outside. Hugs, Bev
