Sketch Challenge Valentine

Happy Sunday!

I do hope everyone is having an enjoyable weekend.  We had a few bumps in our day yesterday but in the end we did have a nice weekend with some wonderful weather.  Have you thought about your word yet for 2012?  I have finally decided on mine.  It took a lot of thought and some consultation with those much wiser than I but I have chosen "Joy"...or "Choose Joy".  This is a concept which I struggle with and I need to change.  Not only do I want to be full of joy, I want to bring joy to others around me in whatever way I can.  I'm excited to hear what words you've chosen so feel free to share!

I decided to participate in a sketch challenge this week. There are tons of card challenges on the internet.  This one is by "Freshly Made Sketches".  I love this blog and refer to it often for ideas!

Here is this week's sketch.  All you have to do is follow it!  It's fabulous and I was excited to use some of the products from the Stampin' Up Occasions Mini Catalogue!

Here's my card1  I used the new PS I Love You stamp set as well as the new Fashionable Heart Emosslits Die.  I thought it was cute for Valentine's Day!  Try out the sketch challenge today!  It's a super easy way to jump start your creativity!
