Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #55

Can you guys even believe it is February already? Man does time ever go by fast. My son will be nine in just six days. That seems crazy to me! Anyway, lets see the new sketch for the week. Here it is....

I made two cards for the challenge. This first one is for the sketch and also is card number 12 in the Your Hired Series. I used the brand new Friends sets. Thought this would be a great male Valentine?? What do you think?

Stamps: Friends and Always
Paper: So Saffron, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White and So Saffron DP
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Other: paper piercer

This next card is for the sketch challenge-made a bit smaller--and the Creative Corner crazy for hearts challenge. I used a bunch of Sizzix dies. Again I thought it could be a male Valentine.

Stamps: Always
Paper: Real Red, Whisper White, Basic Black, Real Red dp
Ink: Basic Black
Other: Big Shot, alphabet dies, heart dies, button sizzlet die, white gel pen, MS heart border punch, misc button

I had to move the sentiment to the top on this one because of the hearts on the bottom.

Hope you will play along this week. It is a super easy sketch--so there can be no excuses, lol! Don't forget to use the keywords TSSC55 when posting online and even more important come on back and leave you name and direct link below on Mr Linky. Can't wait to see what you make.
