When I'm sitting next to you...electricity starts to flow...

Happy Saturday! I hope you've all had a great week. We survived the flu...Cole was the only one with it, and luckily the rest of us have been symptom free. Yay!!

As we speak, I am headed to the airport, where I am CHA bound! I'm excited to see all my girlfriends as well as all the new products being released. My camera is all packed and ready, so be sure to check in as I will post as much as I can while I'm gone! If there's anything in particular you want to see, post a comment here or email me, and I'll try to oblige.

Ok, so on to my card! Aren't you proud, Jen? I did my Sketch for You to Try before I left! Go me! *wink* I combined the sketch with the TCP Tuesday challenge for this week, which was to use any Valentine's stamps from The Cats Pajamas. I used two of the three sets from the Kitty Kat Pack, which is on sale!

I stamped Poochie from the Puppy Love set (isn't he the cutest?) in Brilliance Pearlescent Chocolate ink on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock. I also stamped the heart thought bubble (from the Loving Mew set) twice...once in Chocolate ink and a second time in Real Red. After coloring Poochie with Copic markers, I cut him out with my Circle Nestabilities and added a Chocolate Chip mat and a Real Red Scalloped mat. Then I cut out the chocolate thought bubble and popped it up next to Poochie. I also cut out the heart from the red thought bubble and popped it up to hide the chocolate one.

After I cut the Chocolate Chip and White panels to size, I added thin mats of red and white, then stitched them to the Kraft card base. I colored some White Taffeta ribbon with a Copic marker to match Poochie's heart and tied it around the card. Then I embossed the sentiment (from the Loving Mew set) with white embossing powder.

This card actually came together pretty quickly once I decided what I was going to do. Love it when that happens! You can check out the sketch and Jen's card (as well as Kirsten's card) on Jen's blog. Then you can hop over to visit my girls Amy R, Amy S, Carole, and Susan to see what their crafty selves came up with. Also, please welcome our new SFYTT girl, Kelly Lunceford! I am a huge fan of Kelly's and we're all so excited for her to join us every Saturday! If you want to play with us, don't forget to use the keyword SFYTT so we can give you props. Also, for you SFYTT addicts, Jen has a cool new blinkie for your blog! You can find the code HERE. Fun, huh?

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! I have a feeling I will! *grin*
