Love is in The Air

 Hello, I hope that everyone is having a great week! Can I just say here how much Blogger is driving me nuts. They no longer support my browser which I did not know so I was having all sorts of trouble moving from blog to blog. Then they shut it off totally and I have to use a new browser which I am not crazy about. I don't like change and this is definitely throwing me off. This post is taking me forever to complete! Oh well enough complaining.

 This week we have a sketch challenge for you to play along with us at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations. I loved this sketch and it worked perfectly with my new stamp(isn't he just the perfect valentine). I love to take the guesswork out of creating and even sometimes to challenge myself by using a sketch for my cards. Here is the sketch for this week, great huh. I did flip it so that the text would be on the other side. I also couldn't wait to use those heart beads that I bought in Dover a couple of weeks ago, I bought all three colors!
The other ladies created fabulous creations to inspire you so be sure to stop by their blogs and check them out. Then come play along with us!
