Be Mine

I am so lucky to have the privilege to be the card designer at My Creative Scrapbook! MCS offers fabulous monthly kits, a forum, gallery & blog. As a designer at MCS this month it was my duty to offer a challenge on the forum, and of course I chose to provide a "Card Sketch" just like the ones Kazan and I offer at 2 Sketches 4 You! MCS is offering a awesome prize to the winner of this challenge that runs through Jan 1st to Feb 2nd. 

All you need to to is run over to MCS and register to play along! Hope to see you there:) 
Here is my example card for the sketch that you can see at MCS! I got the tree idea from cute little Valentine hand towels at Target.

Thanks for all your sweet comments!

Laura, I love reading what your days consists of. Why? I really do not know.... Maybe it has to do with the fact that I get so much inspiration from you, that I feel like you are my friend- or something like that! :p
