I haven't had much time for crafting this year while I'm nursing my youngest son after surgery on his leg and foot. Whenever I've started contemplating a card, I'll hear "Muuuuum" and that will be the end of that train of thought. However after 3 weeks of being post-op and no return to school in sight (and a trip to the Expo Creative where I treated myself to some new goodies), I was determined to start something on the weekend and was finally successful in finishing something.
I bought this new honeycomb die with the express purpose of using it with this fabulous Verve "What's the Buzz" stamp set and matching dies and I wanted to use it first. One of my favourite places for sketch inspiration has always been the Verve team so when I saw this sketch from Julee at Viva la Verve, a card started taking shape.

Not a very traditional Valentine's Day card, but I'm not one for lot's of red love hearts anyway. This one is certainly eye-catching (in a 'scuse me while I get my sunglasses kind of way).
I almost used a feather but this scroll die was another newbie so I thought I'd use it instead.
Here are some of the other challenges I'm entering
