Happy Valentine's Day!

Hi All! And a Very Happy Saturday to you! Hope you've been having a Wonderful week! 8-) Well, today I'm back with our very first Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge of the New Year! Yay! 8-) I can't believe it's already 2012.. Wow! Where did 2011 go? Seems like it just flew by in a flash didn't it?..Well, first off, I wish you all a Very Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year! And secondly, without further delay,  here's my take on Miss Korin's Fabulous first sketch of 2012... 8-)
I printed out my Sweet little Hearts Scoop image from The Stamping Boutique onto Flourishes Classic White and did a little paper piecing on the Darling little hearts. I even cut out a few extras and colored the rest up with my trusty Copics. I cut out my image and embossed the edges with the help of my Score Pal for a nice clean look and added a touch of shading with Antique Linen Distress ink. For my Mats and BG layers I chose a combination red CS from my stash and my brand new Crazy Love dp's from Bo Bunny. My I/O Sentiment was stamped directly onto my BG with Memento Tuxedo Black. And to finish it all up I got to use a couple of items that have been in my stash for a while now,  I added a Cute little heart shaped button all tied up with some Yummy Bakers twine.

And here's Miss Korin's Awesome sketch!
I sure hope you can play along with us at The Sweet Stop! Can't wait to see what you all come up with. And as always, please, make sure to stop by and take a peek at the Fabulousness the rest of the Sweet Stop Sugar Babies have created for your inspiration. Leave them a little Love too, it's always greatly Appreciated.... 8-)               
Hope you all have a Fantastic Day! & Thanks so much for dropping by!
