Whew! Sorry I'm a little late with this post. I was scrambling to finish up my card(s) and was totally distracted - I was catching up with last week's episodes of the Young and the Restless this afternoon and man, a lot of good stuff happened!! I won't spoil it for you in case you haven't watched yet, but let's just say I have a feeling all of Adam's scheming and lies are about to come back and bite him in the ass!! And how about that new guy, Tucker McCall? WTH?
Anyway, It's that time again - time for another fabulous Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!! Take a look at this week's sketch:
I absolutely LOVE this one and it's going straight into my "must-use-again-and-again" file!! In fact, I loved it so much I couldn't stop with just one card this week! I created a set of 4 fun little Valentine notecards! I rotated the sketch 90 degrees to make it a vertical layout, which worked perfectly!
I have a really bad habit of buying seasonal stamp sets and then never using them, so I'm determined NOT to do that this year!! This set is a perfect example of a set that I absolutely LOVE and just had to have, but that normally might get pushed aside with all of my DT requirements and other busy-ness until before I know it, Valentine's day is over and I completely forgot to use it!! So I'm really glad I got it inky right away! Isn't it cute!?!? I'm not really loving the red on all of the cards. I like it with the pink, but don't like it with the other colors and wish I would have chose a more neutral color like Chocolate Chip or something for that "anchor" color used on all of the cards. Oh well. I can live with it. Also, I can't remember what that large scallop punch is called? Sorry! All of the other card details are below:
Stamps: Tiny Treats: Valentine (PTI) Paper: Kraft, Real Red, Textured So Pink Pirouette, Textured Baja Breeze, Textured So Saffron, Textured Old Olive (SU); Pure Luxury White CS (Gina K) Ink: Momento Rich Cocoa (Tsukineko); Copic Markers Accessories: Square Nestabilities (Spellbinders); Chocolate Chip Ribbon (SU); Buttons (PTI & Basic Grey); hemp twine from stash
