When I logged in to my blog yesterday, I saw that I had blogged 199 posts since starting this blog in October 2012.  I knew Post #200 had to be special and it is 🙂


I got some new goodies last week from MFT and they were perfect for the weekly sketch.  I almost didn’t get it made it time but a pep talk from a friend helped and I got my card made before work this morning. I *LOVE* how it came out and I hope hubby likes it too since it’s his Valentine’s Day card. Imagine that, I’ve got the card made weeks ahead of time. That is huge for me!


Here is my card~

I used my Blueprints 9 to cut the tag shaped card.  The little bits of red and steel blue strips/dots are cut from dies in the Blueprints as well.  The awesome background was stamped in Grout Gray using the patterned triangles background and the hearts and sentiment, as well as the circle die are from the MPD Distressed Hearts stamp set/coordinating die set.


Here is the sketch~


and I’d like to share my card with these challenges as well~
