You Are Loved



Jen's got a new twist on her Sketch For You To Try (SFYTT) this year.  She will be posting only one sketch per month and if you win you will get a goodie from the sponsor that month.  In addition, if you enter all the sketches this year you are entered for a grand prize draw in December.  Sounds good to me!

That being said, I can't believe it has taken me until now to get the sketch done!  I had all month and here I am cutting it down to the wire.  Where does the time go?!!

The square panel screamed heart to me - can you tell I'm still in Valentine's Day card making mode?!  Had to make one more crimped heart....sorry....we'll actually I'm only a teeny bit sorry because I just love making them!!  The sentiment flag is in lieu of the circle on the card because it crosses over into that area (a little sketch creativity here).  As luck would have it, I had a heart shaped button and I layered it with a pink button for a little something extra next to the sentiment panel.  This card is going to a special friend who moved to Alberta last year who I dearly miss.

Thanks for putting up with yet another Valentine's Day card!!  They will come to an end soon, I promise LOL!  Have a fabulous day :)

You shouldn't be sorry for churning out such card goodness, my dear! Those crimped hearts are such a beautiful detail, I would NOT leave them out! And if they make you happy? That's the only question...
Great job with Jen's sketch...just glad you got it in under the wire!

Just lovely, Maria! I am enjoying your Valentine cards. I didn't make many this year...just not in the mood, I guess. Your silver ribbon and those buttons look super.
