Fun 'n Flair Monthly Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone!  Another quick post.... I'm almost done with the blanket, so my efforts are going on that and I need to work on other projects.

This card is created with this month's sketch by Selina.  Please visit the blog so you can see the sketch, you'll see I omitted an element.  I just didn't know what to put there.  I am also playing along with The Kraft Journal's challenge - Seeing Red.  And I can proudly say, this will be my last Valentine's Day card share.


I really love this card.  I got my eCraft to work for me which yielded that gorgeous heart.  The sentiment says "My heart throbs when I'm with you."  The deep red color choices are to represent ignited passions and I love that the Love stack by Recollections had Kraft designs, too.  As I said, I am very pleased with my results.

OK, now I've got to get busy on ridding myself of all these hearts and romance.  LOL  My friend Debbie said I am the Grinch of Valentine's Day.  Yes, I am.  But sweet Tammy said I can't be hatin' on Valentine's Day because it's her birthday.  So, I will be nice.  I like Debbie and Tammy.

Oh and... toot toot!  I made top 3 for The Kraft Journal's All Kraft challenge AND I'm a Friday Featured Artist there, too.  Whooo-hooo!!  I am thrilled and so honored and humbled that Beth felt my card worthy.

Have a great Saturday!

This is really pretty. I love the embossing. It took me forever though to read the sentiment (my old eyes!) too cute!
