Monday Lunchtime Sketch

I'll be continuing with the Valentines theme here for a while, and since Mary Jo has been kind enough to include hearts in her next few Lunchtime Sketches, it works out perfectly!
Check out her blog for the sketch and details.
This stamp set (Moose You) has some cute animals with fun play on words. I love this little porky with the "stuck on you" sentiment.
I didn't really follow traditional Valentine's colors, but thought it would still work.
The pumpkin pie background has been dry embossed with a heart texture plate.
I'll be back next week with the next sketch challenge, but probably not before. Have a great week everyone.

Technostamper's 100th Sketch

Well, that wasn't a very long "blogging break," but I had to play along for Mary Jo's 100th Monday Lunchtime sketch.

Wow, I can't believe she has come up with 100 different card layout ideas! Way to go, Mary Jo!

I'm starting to think about Valentine's Day for my Etsy Shop. I'll begin putting cards in there in early January. So that was my theme for this sketch.

This is some very old designer paper (Loves Me), that I have just a few pieces of, so I thought I should use some of it up. The punched out hearts both have crystal effects on them. The "highlighted" words that the arrow is pointing to say, loves me."

Don't forget to check out Mary Jo's blog, and her cards this week.

Blogging Break

I'm feeling like I need to take a blogging break. Right now, it's not something I'm enjoying, but more feeling like it's a duty. I don't want this blog to be like that. I haven't decided yet if I'm going to continue the blog, or just quit it, so until then, I'm taking a break.

Thanks for understanding!

I should add, that this does not mean that I am not making cards. I still am, and am posting them in my Etsy shop. I just won't be posting anything new here for a while.
