I have been in a Valentine frame of mind and this is what I came up with. All of the die cuts are from MFT. I love the rose and overlay and have not used it much, so when I saw the circle in the sketch, I knew it would fit the bill. The leaves are part of the overlay leaves set and I just used the overlay. The black sparkly paper is by a company called POW and is thinner than most, so it works well with the die cuts. I stamped the background of the rose with the "artist text". I'm not sure who the recipient will be, but I hope it brightens their day!

My youngest son has a birthday next week and I was looking for a card appropriate for a man approaching middle age. They will always be my children, and sometimes it is hard to believe they are grown men. I rotated this sketch and used MFT kraft, natural, safety orange and steel gray cardstock, to compliment the chevron patterned paper from the "Snippets" collection by studio calico. I used the MFT license plate die and alphabet for the focal piece to let my son know that he is indeed a "Great Son".

I was so happy to see a change for the new year for the last week. It was round or square and I found those difficult. Tall and skinny turned out to be fun. A bit different for the proportions, but I like the way it turned out. I think this sketch is a keeper.
