Hello Everyone,
It’s Wednesday and time for the Wednesday Stamp Club Sketch Challenge at MFT! Here is the sketch for this week:

I hope you have time to play along.  There is a wonderful prize up for grabs - a $15 voucher ($20 if you used MFT stamps) to the MFT Boutique. You can submit your entry using the keyword MFTWSC109 to the Gallery at Splitcoaststampers. Entries for this week’s challenge will close on Tuesday, February 5th at noon EST.  I hope you join in all the fun!

Without further ado here is my card:

 This picture was taken outdoors in the rain!  I stayed under the back porch overhang so it is not the best angle or view....sorry!
This one was taken indoors in my light tent. Isn't light fascinating when it comes to photography?!?  I could play all day if I had more time...LOL!!!  I am definitely still trying to get the hang of how to take the best photo for my blog!  It is a challenge!

I used one of my very favorite stamp sets for this card - "Clearly Sentimental About Teaching".  I have a big soft spot for all the teachers who work with my son each day.  They have a very important job and I think they are underpaid for it!!!  So I like to try and give them a little something extra on Holidays and special occasions.  This card is going to my son's homeroom teacher for Valentine's Day.  I had made another card for her but it was given to one of my friend's daughter's who is in kindergarten.  She asked to come downstairs to see my studio the other day and her eyes lit up like the 4th of July (she is 5 years old).  I ended up sending her home with a mini scrapbook album all ready for pictures, some embellishments, and a valentine card for her Kindergarten teacher.  She wants to come and spend the day with me and craft which tickles my heart!   

Here's a little close up of the sentiment panel.  Love that I found that sweet heart-shaped button in my blue button jar!  The papers are from one of my favorite paper collections of all time from The Girl's Paperie!  Love them!  Wish I could buy more or get it digitally and print it out whenever I wanted to use it!  I did alter the paper a little bit by filling in those pink lines you see next to the blue with a copic marker RV11 - pink.  I thought it needed a little more substance to compete with the red polka dots on this card.

Thanks for taking a look at my card!  I hope you join in this week's challenge!  It is also teaser time for the February 2013 release!  I am loving what I am seeing as I do each month.  See - I really, really, really DO need that $20.00 voucher so I can grab some new yummy crafting supplies at MFT!  LOL!!!
