Happy Monday and Happy Valentine's Day! The deep freeze has warmed just a tad and we are now basking is 30 degrees! Compared to the single digit temps of last week it does almost feel warm. ALMOST.
I had a chance to play along with Jen's February sketch challenge. Here is the link to the deets, the sketch is good for the whole month.
I needed a baby card for a co-worker. She is having a boy and isn't into many of the traditional boy themes. Since we live near Lake Ontario I thought a nautical theme might be different and appropriate.
What do you think? I turned the circle element of the sketch into a life ring using 2 Spellbinder circle dies. I wrapped some white twine around it in 4 places. The papers are all from a pad of October Afternoon paper. The stamp is from a set from Impression Obsession. NO clue if they even carry it anymore, I have had it for quite some time now. Image was colored with Copic markers. I tried desperately to make some hardware fit someplace and just couldn't do it. Sigh...I can be so embellishment challenged!
I made the card 5 1/4" square to leave lots of room on the inside for folks to write their well wishes. I hope she likes it!
I messed around with my blog last night. It is such a challenge to my brain, lol. It isn't 100% to my liking but enough that I can live with it.
Thanks for stopping by! I didn't have time for a Menu Monday recipe, maybe next week.
