Happy Valentine's Day...

My share today is for another sketch at From the Heart
This week is sketch #137, which can be found HERE
The TWIST this week - Hearts, Hearts and more Hearts (see sketch below)


I started with a grey A2 base.  I then layered with papers from Doodlebug Design, Inc. 6 x 6 pad called Sweet Things.

My image is a FREEBIE offered at From the Heart Stamps, called Kitten and Heart. I colored the image using the following Copic markers:  Blender, C-0, C-1, C-3, RV02, RV04.  Sentiment is found in a set call Heart Bandit.

I finished my card with a ribbon bow and pink sequins.

Another great sketch.  I love playing along and aim to finish my cards prior to the last day of the challenge, however, working full time, I can't seem to get into my craft room until the weekend.

Come play along, because guess what? Everyone who does...we get $1.00 discount to use in the store.  The discount expires after 1 month, however there are many $1 snowmen in the Project 100 Snowmen section in the shop.
And they are really cute!

Thanks for coming by today, I appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment.

Today I am sharing another card I made for From the Heart weekly sketch challenge
Sketch #136 (see below) - the TWIST - Shabby Chic/Vintage
You can find the challenge HERE
Here's my card...I was trying to practice sepia tone coloring with my Copic markers
Definitely need to work on it, and I definitely need new colors and more markers, but...
I kind of like the way it looks against the black - it was a great sketch to try too!

My card is an A2 base, cut the 11" by 4.25", folded along the 4.25" at the top
I layered with distressed black  patterned paper and my 2 coordinating squares
The image is from the Easter Trio
I colored the image using the following Copic markers: E31, E33, E37, YR20 Blender
To finish the card, I added light tan pearls and ribbon to attach my sentiment
Thanks for coming by this afternoon, make sure to check out the weekly sketch
and the new Stamp of the Month Challenge starting tomorrow
Have a great week - Karen
