With Love Sketch

I just love this sketch by Jen Cuthbertson for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog!  It is so perfect for Valentine's Day...or any day that calls for a little love :)


...and how I LOVE Sewing Box-Hugs!


I made my circle bases by tracing old can lids!  Stamped the heart from Sewing Box-Hugs on two different papers from the October Afternoon Holiday Style Collection.  The teeny sentiment is from Seasons of Love-Tags.  Some delicious new kraft twill (more love!) from Papertrey Ink to top it off.  A CAS card that sorta-kinda could be masculine-ish.  I am terrible at those, so this is about as masculine as one of my cards gets!

Show the sketch challenge some love!  Upload your creation HERE by next Friday, February 10th.  Be sure to include at least one Waltzingmouse Stamps image on your project to be eligible to be the randomly-selected participant who will win a stamp set of choice!

ALSO...I LOVE that Waltzingmouse Stamps will be releasing NINE new stamp sets this month on February 29th!  Sneak peeks set to begin on Sunday, February 26th, yippee!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Sewing Box Hugs, Seasons of Love-Tags, both Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper:  PTI Vintage Cream, October Afternoon's Holiday Style patterned papers
Ink:  Stazon Black, Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress ink
Other:  mini brads, PTI kraft twill ribbon, wooden button from Michael's, red embroidery floss, dimensionals

Wow Kelly! This one is simply perfection! You have a lot going on but it looks so clean and proportioned! This one is a real winner! Everything about it is like it was meant to be.

Gasp! This is crazy fab. You know I loves me some plaid and this OA touch of it is swell. I love your thrifty use of the cans. Talk about perfect. I don't have this set of homespun heaven. Dare I say it is now on the wishlist from hell. ;-). As inspiring as always!

How pretty this is Kelly, love the bow wrapped around it and the paper pieced hearts, Holiday Style is a great choice of patterned papers for this one too. I like how you did the sentiment runniing up and down. Very smart!
