RS #40



Talk about to the wire.  I have been battling this nasty flu bug all week and energy levels are zero.  That being said I have never missed a RetroSketches sketch since the beginning and i wasn't going to pass up on this week's amazing sketch.

I need to be up early tomorrow my daughter has a cheer leading competition--Cheer for the Cause.  All of the girls are adorning pink Breast Cancer ribbons.  All the money raised is going to help the fight for Breast Cancer.

Cardstock:  White
Patterned paper: Pure Poppy Bitty Dot Basics, Text Style Sugar Plum
Stamps: Santa's Coming to Town
Ink:  Real Red (Stampin' Up)
