A happy Friday to you all! If you're at work today, I hope it flies by, and if you're at home like me today, I hope it is nice and relaxing for you.

I have one last Valentines day card to show you. It might actually be my favorite out of the bunch....although the Twilight card does make my heart flutter! LOL

Club Anya threw out a sketch challenge this past week and I couldn't resist having a go at it. The sketch was fun but the prize was just too good to resist! The winner will receive the Miss Anya set being released tomorrow! (I plan on getting her one way or another, but free is better! haha)

I didn't stray from the sketch at all (why mess with a good thing). The patterned paper is My Mind's Eye valentine release last year. Most of you know by now that I don't own nesties, so I cut my circle out with my Fskars circle cutter then cut the circle in half. Then I got out my trusty and loyal decorative scissors and trimmed the curved edges of my half circles to create the scalloped edges. Like I told my friend Kadie, when you don't have stuff, you get creative! LOL

I sponged the edges of the patterned papers and sewed the pieces to the cardstock. Anya and Ian make such a cute couple don't they? I watercolored them in and added stickles to the heart. I stamped out Anya's bow again and popped that up on dimensionals and added a little flower gen to the center. Then it was just a matter of piecing it all together! Jess will announce the winner tomorrow, so keep your fingers crossed everyone!

I have some happy mail coming at the end of the day today. It's my very first order from Whipper Snapper! Eeek! I am very tempted to intercept the delivery at the UPS warehouse so I can play with the stamps this morning, but I have a few other projects to work on and really need to get them done, so that will be my motivation today! *grin*

Have a great Valentines Day and a relaxing weekend!
