Beate's Sketch Challenge

Well next month is Valentine's Day so I thought I better get busy with my Valentine Day Cards and this was such a fun sketch from Beate. I must admit when I first saw the sketch I was going to pass as it was out of my comfort zone, don't know why just could not think of anything with this sketch, but once I kicked myself in the butt and had a little chat with myself I knew that I was going to do it. The stamp is from MissyB, one of her new sets, it is a great set, there are three tree images, one with hearts, one with stars and one with a tire, kite and birds nest, too cute She is have a 20% off Christmas sale on a lot of her stamp sets, and I believe that she is still running the sale. I love her whimsical stamps. Some wonderful $ ribbon from Michael's and paper wanna say DCVW, yup that is what it is. The sentiment is a clear sticker that I had and that cute butterfly is from some set that I just had to have from QVC, you know I think they could sell roller skates to a person in a wheelchair. It was a bunch of tags and cute little stickers that they just convinced me I had to have, well this is 2008 and I am using it all.
