Thinking of You

Hi ya, all! Laura Davis from the popular 2 Sketches 4 You is now hosting a fun sketch challenge on her personal blog The Paper Poppy! I decided to try out her January sketch before the deadline. Here is the sketch.


It's Laura's signature simple and chic sketch and here is my take on it.


I stay pretty close to the sketch this time. =)


This also gave me the perfect excuse to play with my February Card Kit of the Month from Simon Says Stamp. The patterned paper is from Fresh Cuts 6x6 Paper Pad by BasicGrey and the sentiment is from Thinking of You set. I am also linking this up to the Anything Goes with Twine or String challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog since there are some string loops behind the speech bubbles.

That's all from me. A new Poppy Sketch will be posted on The Paper Poppy on February 1st, don't forget to check it out! =)

Have a sweet day and thanks for stopping by!
