CAS[E] this Sketch #249 - Retro Sketch!

Here we are again!  Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and are ready for another RETRO Sketch this week -  guess what!  I actually remembered making a card for this one!  Would you like to see it?

 
my card from December 29, 2014:
 
 
Not only do I still love that gorgeous gold Thanks I sure do miss my tray, and the perfect light from that window... sigh.
 
Okay.  Enough reminiscing ... here is the new, and fun Christmas version for Leigh Penner's CTS#249/104:
 
Avery Elle: Stockings; DOX inks; Reverse Confetti Die
 
Thanks for coming by, and thank you always for playing cards with us at CAS[E] this Sketch!

Cute and clever take on the sketch, Michele! The stockings are really fun and your splatters are perfect...Looks like designer paper! I wasn't following you yet in 2014, but I have to say, your gold sentiment is so elegant and the hearts are lovely! You always know how to inspire us to play along...Thanks :)

I like the whimsical feel of your new version Michele! But I have to say the patterned hearts and that beautiful golden thanks win my heart tonight!

Fun to see the different styles. I really like the colors on that blue stocking and the splatters you achieved on the background. :)

Those stockings are a cute as they can be, Michele. I found the card I made for the first time this sketch came around. What a difference a few years make. Now I have to see what I can come up with this time.

I love both cards, but the new one seems to express your fun and humorous character more!
I miss the light from the big window in my old place too. Hideko :-)

That's such a lovely, softly sweet and feminine card from way back when, Michele ... what a fun and oh so festive version this time around! Wait till you see my TO DT card this week ... you'll smile ... the muse mist must've been over your lake as well as our river!! Hugs, Anita :)
