Yup, you stole my heart.

HAPPY 2013!! I hope you seen the new year in with a blast! I had such a laugh at a local pub with friends. Haven't been that drunk in a while, and I regretted it come about 2am this morning - but it was worth it! ;) So I'ma be T-Total until 31st December 2013! LOL.

So, we're starting off the new year with a brand new challenge over at Some Odd Girl. Of course it's a sketch for you to follow ;) Head over to the blog and see the amazing inspiration the ODDies have come up with.


Here's my take on the sketch using Heartsy Mae, Love Bandit (for sentiment) and Lovey Tobie (for hearts).
I've coloured this cutie up using the standard ProMarkers and FlexMarkers to match my papers from My Minds Eye.

I've embossed my Naturals White cardstock with a diamond lattice embossing folder and adhered my pinking circle straight down to that.

My sentiment is from the Love Bandit clear set that was released early in December. I thought the expression on Mae's face made it perfect to use as a cute valentines card. I've added a bunch of Doodlebug brads and some red pearls to finish this relatively CAS card. :) Hope you likey.

I'd like to enter this card into these challenges:
- Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
- My Mums Craft Shop - Anything Goes

Thank you for stopping by. 
Happy New Year. xo
