Have you heard the fun news? Jen has switched up the Sketch For You To Try for 2011 - this year, she's offering one sketch a month, which is perfect, because it gives you SO much time to play along.
I'm challenging myself to complete each of the 12 sketches this year. And YOU really should play along too, want to know why? There is a big old prize at the end, awarded at random to ONE participant who completes each of the 12 sketches. And of course, the first sketch, was nothing but fabulous!
As you can see, I've fully moved onto Valentines, so I grabbed for my Pure Innocence: Happy Mail and lots of patterned paper from My Mind's Eye Animal Crackers. Sadly this sweet little stamp is currently out of stock, but be sure to check out the full line of My Favorite Things Pure Innocence!
I reached for the "xoxo" sentiment for the tiny flag I lifted it off of another of the PI Girls, I'm sure she won't mind, they like to share (um, unlike my kids...) The tiny pink woodgrain heart is courtesy of my much loved Die-namics Hearts a Plenty Die.
I love mixing brights and blacks for an extra bit of pop. Its also a good excuse for me to add a dash of TCP Divine Twine into my projects. Love. It.
So, here's the first of my SFYTT submissions for the year, looking forward to bringing you eleven more! *see if I claim it here as a goal on the bloggity, I'm less likely to skip any, I trust you'll all hold me accountable right?**
