You're an Absolute Sweetheart!


Edited to add: I wasn't happy with the way my card turned out the first time, so I "fixed" it. I think this is MUCH better, don't you? I learned how to make those flowers at Wendy Smedley's blog. They are so easy and so fun to make!

Happy Friday! Yay, it's Friday! I'm looking forward to a really productive weekend, with lots of crafting included. I've been frustrated artistically this week... no time to really create the projects I had in mind. But that's over, and tomorrow is another day!

Another reason I love Fridays is the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge! I did a clean and simple interpretation this time, which I thought was the best way to showcase one of the new stamp sets at Waltzingmouse Stamps... Sweethearts! Once you have this stamp set, you've got all the basics you need for cards of love and friendship! I'll be back soon with more fun projects using Waltzingmouse Stamps... I just LOVE their sweet simplicity and charm!

I hope you'll play with us this week! Because of CHA, this is the last TE Sketch Challenge until February 5th. To get you started, check out what the rest of the Sketch Crew has created:

What a fantastic layout for a valentine card! Love how you used the patterned paper inside the heart to match the pp used on your main panel. Sweet touch!

This card is wonderful, Lisa! I love the polka dot paper you used! And I like both of the cards: bow on the first one before make over is so pretty! And this flower is absolutely stunning!
You are very talented, Lisa!

So funny - I actually loved the ribbon bow! Your card inspired me with the ribbon for my valentines day cards. The flowers is cute too but I think I prefer the bow myself! Either way the card is absolutely adorable!

OK I'm just buzzing through quickly and had to say "WOW'za"!! You know how I love this look and that SUPER CUTE paper flower... YES! Didn't see the first card, but you ROCKED this one! I just wish I had the time to play, not have a mess for a craft room!

I just heard we have a "rain storm" coming tomorrow and then this weekend... Grrrr! NO ICE! Off to bed to think happy thought... happy thought, etc. ha... :)
