Well, I have come full circle. I think my crafting journey started about 60 years ago (oops, I'm confessing my age) when I started making Valentines. So after the circuit of all kinds of crafts, here I am back making Valentines. I'll have to say, they are a bit more sophisticated these days.
Here is my Valentine for Case This Sketch and Cas-ual Fridays challenges. Cas-ual Fridays challenge is using knots.
These cute heart stamps don't have a label and I don't know where they were from. The sentiment and punches are SU as well as the Cherry Cobbler ink. Twine from Tim Holtz. I have trouble deciding if there is too much white or not. I first tried just the twine but the card looked too stark so I cut a piece of SU cherry cobbler scrap and slid it behind the twine. Much better.
Here is the sketch:


  1. Wonderful, classic Valentine (I can't believe we're seeing Valentines already, but that's the nature of this wonderful hobby, isn't it - to always be ahead of the game!) Thanks so much for playing along with CAS(E) This Sketch this week!

  2. Donna this is so pretty! I love it!

  3. Great take on the sketch, Donna! I love those hearts and I'm so happy you joined us at CAS(E) this Sketch!

  4. I think your Valentine's is so sweet! Thanks so much for playing at CAS-ual Fridays this week!
