7. The March Designer of the Month will be chosen and contacted March 3rd, but will not be announced until the first Saturday of March on
Here's this week's sketch...

Here's my take on Jen's sketch...I used die cut hearts in a variety of mediums (felt, cork, paper) for the circles on the sketch, just because it's so darn close to V-day. Sneak peek of a TCP sentiment that will be released Tuesday, February 9th...papers by October Afternoon (Lucky Duck).

Here's a close-up of the sentiment cluster...don't you just love that pink/white polka dotted paper?! The texture on the pink heart comes from all the scratches on my Big Shot sandwich plates, so when I die cut the heart, instant texture...nice by-product, huh?! As you can also see, my sentiment is a big smudged...always in too much of a hurry, and the ink smudged when I edged the flag with some PTI chamomile tea dye ink. Stick pins are Maya Road and button is from PTI's vintage buttons in Aqua Mist.

I can't wait to touch base with the rest of the crew: Jen & February Designer of the Month, Kelly, Amy, Leigh and Susan. Have a great weekend, all!
