CAS[E] this Sketch #255

Well, Donna, you cannot imagine how badly I wanted to use that new jingle bell I bought before Christmas ... but I resisted.  Valentine's Day is coming quickly, you know...


I've had this set of Lil' Inker stamps, and die, since last Valentine's, and couldn't resist using this pair of the Lovie Friends here ...



The lighting in my craft studio is mighty gloomy - I'm feeling a need to paint ... maybe.

I'm sure my teammates have painted a gorgeous gallery of cards to inspire you to play cards with Donna's fun CTS #255 ... let's go... thanks for dropping by!

Supplies:  PTI dotted paper; Michael's Amethyst 12x12 pad; Lil' Inkers Lovie Friends, and Fringed Scalloped Hearts, Copics for coloring on Neenah 110# cardstock.

Awwww, this is adorable! Those critters are so sweet and I really like how you colored them. The heart frame is really fun with the pieces that you can fold up to give dimension. the gray and purple is a wonderful color combination, too. Thanks so much for sharing this delightful card, Michele! Hugs! :)
