Tough Twinkling Challenge!!!

Good morning!

As you can figure out by my post title this week's Twinkling Tuesday sketch was a toughie for me!

Those criss crosses get me every time, but I just chose to have them sort of blend into the card, and I guess it worked...... haha! I am not a very good judge of my cards....

This week we have a Guest Sketch artist, aka, our "Temporary Twinkie". This week it is one of our Design Team Members daughter!! Heather's Schlatter's daughter Piper drew up a doozie woozie of a challenge!!

If you choose to play along, and how could you resist, just upload your card to your site and then provide a link on the Twinkling Tuesday site!

Okay, here we go..........

I chose to use Pink Paislee Pop Fashion papers with Kim Hughes Baby Love stamp set and a bit of clear resist thrown in!

I stamped the main image and the sentiment onto glossy paper with the clear resist pad, heat dryed it with my embossing hair dryer thing-y and then sponged over top with Stamping UP Pixie Pink ink.

I cut out the heart with my scalloped heart nestabilities and then topped it with a K & Company heart bling. A little white bow for cuteness was added to finish it off!

WHEW! What a sketch!

Off to Sarnia today to take Holly to Math class.

Hubby has gone to Kentucky to the National Farm Machinery Show (doesn't that sound exciting!! I actually begged to go, but hubby said he thought I might find it boring.....oh darn it......*cough cough*) so I guess I'll have a few days to myself..........I wonder if I will like that at all.............
