MFTS SKETCH -WHOOOO'S YOUR VALENTINE

Heehee, I love that saying!!! Here it is, Tuesday already, I am hoping the whole week goes by this fast since I have Friday off and Monday is a holiday - yep, I get a four day weekend!! Now, before you start hating me, remember that I have to take furlough days meaning I don't get paid for these days off...I am just trying to see the bright side of things :-) This card is based on another sketch site I just recently discovered called Mercy's Sketch Challenge - looked like fun, so I played along! I thought the sketch was really easy to play with and since I wanted to use my new set that I just got in the mail on Saturday, it became another Valentines Day card, LOL!! I wonder what I will do with them all.....I only have one Valentine :-) The set is called Whoo's Your Valentine and I am in love with this cute little owl!!! I stamped him in both red and black to match the rest of the card and I just think he is adorable!! I also played with my new punch called Pinking Hearts border punch - love this punch!!! And, I could not resist adding one of my new Sending Love Epoxy brads, they are just soooo cute!!! So, there you have it - another sketch challenge completed!! Now, off to work I go - gotta earn money for my next stamp order, LOL!! Thanks for stopping by and make sure you pop back in tomorrow to see my Hostess gifty I made for my upcoming workshop! Toodles!
