My Heart Twinkles

Hi girls!! Are you having a great Tuesday so far? Ours has been wonderful so far! I have my card for this week's Madelynn's Twinkling Tuesdays sketch challenge. And, oh, what a challenge it was. I've been putting it off ever since I got home Sunday afternoon. This week is very exciting as we have our first Temporary Twinkie this week. Heather is one of the DT gals and her daughter Piper created this week's sketch for us. Check it out!

If I remember correctly, she is 6!! Incredible huh? She loves to watch her mom make cards and particularly loved the off-set corner roundings so we were asked to please be sure to not change that little element. I started going through a box of stamps, just grabbing ones to see if I could be inspired. Most of them were too big but this little one caught my eye. It's just a Studio G stamp I picked up at Michael's for $1. I figured it would be the perfect size and it would be fun to use a journaling stamp on a card instead of a scrapbook page.

Yep. Still on the "{heart} you" phase. Here is the rest of my card. I kept it pretty flat, only popping up the center image as I'm going to mail this to my Grandma.

Kinda an untraditional color scheme but at first I thought it might be my little man's Valentine. Either way I think my Grandma will enjoy it!
Please be sure to stop by and see all the other creations the Twinkle Team put together for this week. I'm off to check them out myself real quick! You can find the official blog with the sketch and this week's featured Twinkie! Upload your creation there too so we can all see it. If you upload to SCS or PCP please use the keyword: MTTSC9. And here's the rest of the team:
Heather Definitely visit her and leave a little note for Piper!!

That's it for me today! I'm off to check out the rest of the team and then I have to go create my ATC's for my local stamp club tonight. The theme is the Elements: Earth, Fire, Water or Wind. Totally stumped on what to do. If I come up with something great I'll share it here with you later in the week. Come back tomorrow as it's Wednesday and you know that's Triple Post Day!

This is soo soo cute and I love your take on the sketch!!!! I really enjoy that elegant corner rounder. I have that punch and it is funny I have never seen anyone else use it, and I get lots of comments when I use it to find out where I got it. I bought mine like 8 or 9 years ago and I have no idea if it is even available anymore.

I love the way you criss crossed the ribbon and made the elements of the sketch work!!!

I know Piper will be so super excited to see it when she gets home tonight!!!

Thanks for playing cassie and so glad you are back to blog land!!!

I took an unplanned 5 day break from blog land (explained on my blog!!!)
