Seize The Sketch #26 - Puffy Heart Anniversary

Welcome to sketch #26 at Seize The Sketch! I love, love, love this week's sketch (but then, I think that about every one I've done so far with STS!).


Our sketch hostess this week is Katie Melhus.  Don't you just "dig" this?  (my kids would roll their eyes at me using that sentence - "Oh, Mom, you think you're so cool! ha ha!") It's super simple, but it doesn't have to be if you dress it up, like I did.


My patterned papers are from Authentique's Lovely, and though geared toward Valentine's Day, I thought they would work for an anniversary card.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Think Big Favorites #16. Have I mentioned lately how much I love PTI stamps?

The puffy heart is from....can you guess?...Build-A-Bear!  Yes, it was found on the floor there by one of my kids many years ago.  I saved it, knowing I could use it somehow.  And the little double-heart gold charm is from a thrift store in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.  It looked bare by itself, so I added the tiny pink paper flower to the bottom of it, but now you can hardly tell it's a pair of golden hearts!  Ha!


Well, thanks so much for coming today.  I hope you get a chance to play with us.  Challenges last two weeks, and all details can be found on the STS blog HERE.

Your colors and papers are so SWEET! LOVE it all over! I'm always inspired by Seize the Sketch. By the end of summer I'm always looking forward to winter so I'll have more time to stamp. I'd love to sit down with this sketch right now!
