i {heart} card sketches no. 55

Guess what I found out today!?! It was the bestest news ever! From the Heart weekly sketch challenge participants receive $1 for each challenge! Plus the usual prizes. You know how that goes. is not my friend! :( I was just so thrilled! It's a weekly challenge and I don't do well with weekly challenges but I'm gonna try my best! I love From the Heart images! Faith Skrdla draws the cutest images! I've just not been able to buy all the ones I want as often as I want because of the tight money belt situation right now. Recently, I won a set from her store! Yay me! lol She was having a contest on FB and my comment was picked, along with two others. It was such a dilemma to chose ONE image! But I did! :) I settled on Chocolate Box Birdbrain.
I've bought several sets that come with sentiments and then I participate in the From the Heart progressive challenges. Some of these images come with sentiments. I find myself using the sentiments on other cards. That's what I was doing today. I used a sentiment on a project and wanted to link the set I used to the post. I'm HUGE about linking everything! lol ;) I cannot stand to read a blog and there's no information about where to get things or what they are called so I can find them on my own. So I probably go overboard linking all that I can for my readers... hahahahaha... sorry, that idea gave me the giggles. I think I'm my only reader. :-\ So anyway, I was looking for the store link on the blog and I don't know WHAT drew my attention but I went over and read the i {heart} card sketches no. 55 post. I perked up big time when I read the awesome news. Get this... it's been going on for awhile! Because the post read that participants "will still" receive the $1 for each challenge. Where have I been? Apparently under a rock! ;) lol
So, I went through the images I currently have printed out and I decided to use Sweet Chef with a sentiment from Cupcake Trio. Then... when I was looking for these links, I discovered LOYALTY POINTS! Sorry, didn't meant to scream but I did NOT know about these! I have points I can redeem! So I did... I could not wait to spend these! What a dilemma again! I was torn between Martini Chicks, Birdbrain Football Fanatics, Meet Anneke or Birthday Pickup. On the other hand... I'd also been eyeing a heap of her sentiment sets... so that's what I got.
Sorry, lost my train of thought! Here is my card:
I colored the image with Copic markers and all supplies used are from my long-hoarded stash. Ha! I'll never finish that stash! :-\ I've been throwing my scraps too! I use to keep ALL my scraps but I thought to myself, I'd be getting rid of my long-hoarded stash for DECADES! So I've been purging. Still hard to do... I fight the urge to pull things out of the trash can. lol I'm hopeless! What can I tell you?
Anyway, I went kinda long but I had such fantastic news! :) lol Thanks for stopping by!
