Better Late Than Never...

Hello happy people! As the title indicates, I have been a bit of a procrastinator. I am just now going to upload the card I made for SCS's Sketch Challenge which any of you who know about or participate in this know that the challenge is done on Wednesdays. I know, I know. Tsk, tsk on me. Anywho, I made a large Valentine's card using My Mind's Eye patterned paper, Purely Pomegranite and Whisper White Cardstock and Close to Cocoa ink pad by SU!, and Making Memories brads. The shapes were cut out using the 'Home Accents' cartridge for my Cricut Expressions.

The striped layer was simply crumpled by hand then opened and flattened somewhat. Then I used to Close to Cocoa to ink the raised parts. I continued to ink the edges of the Whisper White and the polkadot paper with the Close to Cocoa. Finally I added some glitter to the 'Love' cutout and the border of the accent piece. On the left is a picture of the sketch.

I decided on making a Valentine's day card because on Thursday Colton's class was making Valentines for the troops. Colton was very excited to have his Mommy come to his class and bring all her stamping stuff. The kids all had such a blast using the rubber stamps and paper punches. It was a wonderful day. So on that note, I will leave you all some pics of Colton's class and I hope you all have a Splendid Saturday!!

Lots of Hugs,
