WMSC #79 - January 7, 2011 - Hey Sweet Thing

I hope everyone is having a great Thursday.  I did a little running around with my daughter this morning, but now we are home and back in business.  Actually she is going out to lunch with some friends from school, and I'm taking advantage of my quiet time.  Can you believe it's snowing here?  Our first real snow of the winter!!  It's so pretty to watch when your indoor and don't have to go anywhere.  I will have to face the slippery roads when I pick up my son from school shortly. 

PrintToday I'm playing along with the first Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge of 2012!  The Mischief Makers were on a holiday hiatus but now they're back - and so am I!  Click here for the link you'd like to play along...   And here's the sketch. 
I've been trying to make more cards to send out vs. building up my already large card collection so I decided to make a Valentine's card.  Sweethearts is one of the most recent sets I've purchased and I'm glad to get some ink kissed on to these babies.  I really love all the unique sentiments Claire included in this set, and the one I used "hey! sweet thing" is no exception.  I wanted to do something a little non-traditional and I think this one with the turquoise accents fits the bill.  I distressed the edges, sanded down the embossed middle,  and added lots of layers.   I hope you like it and that you find some time for a little fun today!
