Sweet Sunday Sketch #51

Wow! Have I really not posted at all yet in 2010?? So first of all, Happy New Year!! The year started off crazy busy around here with my in-laws visiting for a few weeks (they just left Friday, so things are starting to get back to normal) and lots of changes and drama going on with my Dad's care that have caused a ton of stress in all of our lives. But hopefully things are going to start looking up in that department very soon (keep your fingers crossed anyway!) as we've made some difficult decisions and have started the process to take care of some important and necessary changes regarding his long-term care. {sigh}.

Anyway...So here we are, Sunday again and it's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. Take a look at this week's sketch:

All the craziness going on in my life seems to have zapped my MoJo, so I stuck with the sketch in a very literal way as you can see...

I used a fun new kit, Love Story, by Libby Weifenbach (Sweet Shoppe) for all of the papers and even those 3 hearts are digi embellishments printed, cut out with my hobby knife and popped up on dimensionals! The Happy Valentine's Day sentiment is from the SU set, Teeny Tiny Wishes. I added some Very Vanilla satin ribbon and was done! SUPER easy.

Be sure to stop by the other Sweet Sunday Stampers' blogs to see what they've done with the sketch:
Then head on over to Karen's blog and use Mr. Linky to share your own creation with the sketch!!

Stay tuned this week - I have A LOT to share with Sneak Peeks of the new Verve stamps leading up to the Friday release and I'll be back later today to share a fun project I created for Clear and Simple Stamps this month!!
