page plans sketch day

Good Sunday morning friends! I hope your weekend has been wonderful!

As you know...today is Page Plans sketch day. We were asked to make an adult valentine this week and well, I think I did. I started out thinking that I would like to make a valentine for Todd but realized once I got started that this wasn't going to be for Todd. Don't get me wrong...I like the shabby feel of this card but it just isn't a Todd card.

This was a super easy card to put together. I have used Basic Black, PTI White, and Basic Grey Eva papers, the Sweet N Sassy Stamps set called Home Sweet Home for the sentiment, and the heart border is from a Verve Stamps Set called Hundred Thoughts. Oh, and the new heart punch from Stampin' Up! Tell me...what do you think of this card?

Oh, and did you see what I saw when I looked at my hit counter? That's right ladies...I've gone over 100,000 hits! I can hardly believe it! I would love to give away some Glory from Lorie in honor of this and you know what it is going to be? A Basic Grey Pack. It will have paper (6x6), ribbon, rub-ons and some Basic Grey magnet buckles. If you'd like it..I'd even throw in this card, too! What do you need to do? Just comment on this post and tell me what new things you'd like to see on my blog. Please post your comment (one per person please) by 5 p.m. (EST) January 28th. I will announce the winner on Thursday's blog post. You are more than welcome to share this candy with your friends! **Side Note...if I draw your comment and you haven't left me a way to get a hold of you I will re-draw. **

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I'll see you soon!

Oh Lorrie,

What a morning - my first comment did not post - and my second one ended up under the wrong day, lol!

Hopefully the third time is a charm.

I love your card and blog, and would also love to see pics of your scrap room as well as photos of any great organizational solutions you use!

Lorie - Your blog is inspiring spiritually and craft-ually (I know, I know, it's not a word). I even tried my first Created by Courtney Challenge this week thanks to you!

I would love to see how you organize your stamps and ink and cardstock and paper and accessories, and what type of desk/table you work at.

Thank you for sharing what you do!
