Mojo Monday sketch. ;)
I find it pretty funny that when I announced class I was clear to say that there wouldn't be any Valentine projects. Then, I started making a bunch of cards and several of them have turned out looking a whole lot like they are destined for February 14th. I'm sure they could come in handy at other times too, but they definitely fit the bill for heart day. And here I thought I didn't have any Valentines in me.
I had a ton of fun putting this one together. It has fun textures on each of the hearts thanks to my little embosslit die and then a matching texture on the background. There are way more hearts than are typical for me, but I get a kick out of them. And I dig the way the bold colors play off of each other to make the whole thing pop. It's a keeper. Now I just need to pick which ones we'll make in class. ;) I think having this much selection is a good problem to have.

Color Throwdown to see what they were up to this week. As always, they had an excellent color pallet for me to put to use. This time around it was Regal Rose, Baked Brown Sugar, and Soft Sky. I didn't know what I wanted to create, but the Regal Rose made me itch to use my new Spiral Flower die. There's no way this 3D beauty will make it through the mail on its own, but it is perfect to deliver in person or add to a gift box/bag. I seem to be using a ton of my framelets this month too. Each card seems to feature at least one if not more! My guess is it's the ease that my Magnetic Platform gives me in using them now. I'm afraid they used to collect a lot of dust because it just wasn't as easy to use them as my punches. The certainty I get when using my Magnetic Platform changed all that though. It's easy as pie! Ok, time to remember that this Sunday is focused on more than just crafting. I think there's a football game of some sort I'm supposed to watch. ;)
