2S4U VDay Card

This is my first time playing along with a 2 Sketches 4 You Challenge. I've been following the blog for quite some time, having discovered it when my good friend Sankari joined their team, but the timing has just never worked out for me to play along with one of their challenges until now. And I have to say - I absolutely LOVED this sketch!!
I think I might have mentioned it before, but I am completely in LOVE with this stringed hearts image from the Love set from Clear and Simple Stamps!!! I just can't get enough of it! I keep imagining those hearts colored in all sorts of color combinations. You all might as well just get used to seeing that image. It's here to stay on the ole blog - and not just for Valentine's Day either. So deal with it! :-)
For my creation, as usual, I went with a Kraft Like a Rockstar CS base and took my Copic colors from the colors in the Cloud 9 DP I used for the background. I stamped the image and sentiment in Momento Rich Cocoa on On the Catwalk Cream CS. I added some pom-pom trim from my stash (purchased at my local quilt shop) - and yes, I am totally addicted to pom pom trim lately!! (sorry for the poor quality photo guys - it was already dark when I finished up and took my photo and this is the best I could do after lots of editing in photoshop!!).

So how many of you are heading out to CHA this weekend? I am soooo jealous! I was really hoping to go this year, but with all of the things going on with my Dad's care and taking some time off of work to deal with that - it just isn't happening. Maybe in the summer? Someday I hope to go and finally meet some of you in person! I often feel so isolated out here on this little island with really only my BSFF Sarah to play with (and sometimes her Mom Les flies in from Oahu to stamp with us - Hi Les!) - but you all have no idea how jealous I am when I read about your big weekend stamping get togethers and crops and such!! I think one of these years they need to move CHA to Maui!!! :-)

But for those of you who ARE making the trip to Anaheim, be sure to stop by the Clear and Simple Stamps booth #659 for some fun Make and Takes and to see their AMAZING Live Release - TRUST ME - you do NOT want to miss this innovative new product - it will knock your socks off!!!!!!! And if you do stop by, be sure to tell the girls Jen says Aloha and ask them how the Caramacs were!! ;-)

Hey lady, so when are we gonna get to CATCH UP on our lives??? You know you can CALL me anytime. I always seem to thing about calling you at about 6am your time. During my wine time. This is a very cute card, love the pom poms. Guess I need to take mine out of the stash and use them, not like they aren't replaceable. LOL, they are a save for a Special Occasion type project.
