Well it's a new year and this is my first post of the year! I just celebrated my 40th birthday and had such an amazing time with my family and friends and felt so incredibly loved and adored. It was wonderful! I will do a post on that soon :).
This year, Jen is doing something a little different. Rather than a weekly sketch, she is doing one sketch per month. This will relieve her of having to come up with a sketch every week, and will give people a chance to play along that just don't have the time to do one per week. I absolutely love playing along and am confident I can make it through all 12 sketches this year! At least that is my goal. When I need a little inspiration in between, I can always go to some of her previous sketches or my favorite magazine - Papercrafts - where I find tons of inspiration from color combinations to sketches, to creative ways to use ribbon and buttons and other fun embelishments.
For this sketch I made a Valentine's Card. As much as I love making Christmas projects, it was fun to create a card for another holiday. And Valentine's cards are so much fun! How much do you love this stamp from CC Designs? Is she not the cutest thing? I colored her with Copic markers and I also added some Stickles to the "candy" hearts to give them some shimmer.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy.
