New Caarvarks Challenge

A really cool challenge is going on right now at Caardvarks! The very talented Becky Fleck of Page Maps has provided a great sketch to work from. When you thought it couldn't get any better Studio Calico is the sponsor for this challenge! Run over to Caardvarks and play along!
Here is my take on Becky's sketch. I am so getting into the Valentine's theme!
Thanks for all your sweet comments!

Playing with Valentine themes? Love to share? Cards4Kids has been asked by hospital administration to contribute 1000(+) Valentine cards, ATCs, post card fronts for choosing by 238 longterm care Children's Hospital kids, Detroit,MI. The kids two years through teens will be able to choose cards like the Christmas cards for soldiers we happily contributed as a network of crafters. Just imagine the thrill of neighbors, classmates, family or teachers of longterm illness children when a card of caring arrives because crafters gave! Then remember the decision delight each child had looking at all those Valentines on a volunteer's cart! Rubber Maid will be right in there making certain everyone has choices for everyone on his/her list! School to home tutors would be proud of the language and penmanship skill practice.
