retro sketches 45 - YAY!

Saturday, January 5, 2013

Today is a very special day for me.  Arielle, from retro sketches, has asked me to be a guest designer over there for the month of January!  Woo Hoo!  I am seriously in awe of the retro sketches DT and I'm not sure I'm worthy, but I'll give it my best shot!



This weeks sketch is based on Kasia's card here.  And since it seems that now Christmas is over and everyone has dug out their Valentine stamps I figured I better jump on the band-wagon rather than being the odd-man out.  The color challenge at Pals Paper Arts is high up there as one of my faves and I wanted to try and make a Valentine with it.



I used some washi tape to create a graphic background then layered on some hearts from I {Heart} Hearts and P.S. I Love You.  A simple sentiment finishes it all off!

So now I'll just send a big thank you cyber-hug to the amazing ladies of retro sketches for letting me join them this month.  Then I'll invite everyone else to join us this week to create some super-fantastic-ness with this great sketch!

Oh, and I've still got lots for sale here.  I added some alphabet stamp sets and a few Copic Original markers.  Check it out, if you're interested.
