Love You Much CPS!! :)


The sketch I used for this card was CPS #99.  I am excited for the gals over at CPS because the next card sketch challenge will be number 100!! 

As you can see, I am on a red kick.  I guess it's that Valentine's Day is around the corner and I love making cards for it.  I didn't use Black as my outlining color though this time.  I used Chocolate Chip instead.

I stamped all of the hearts in Chocolate Chip on Riding Hood Red CS, cut them out, and then sponged their edges in Riding Hood Red to (hopefully) give the illusion of watercoloring.  In real life they really do pop much more off of the card because of the sponging.  ;)

If you get to stamp today you should check out this sketch on CPS and play along.  It's a fun sketch - they always are!!!

 Also, don't forget that if you like this stamp set or the Candy Lane DSP, or the Heart to Heart punch and you think you might get them, well, the getting is NOW.  If you wait until after January 18th to purchase them, then you will pay regular price.  Right now these three items make up the Love You Much Bundle, and it gives you a 20% discount on all three items!!!!!!!  So, if you don't have a SU! demonstrator of your own, or you're one of my customers, go to my SU! website by clicking on the "24 hour online shopping" picture in the right-hand sidebar and from there click "shop now" on my website to place your order before it's too late.
