Masculine Valentine two for

Whoo-hoo I finally got Stamping 411 sketch challenge done on time this week!
The last two weeks, I missed "mr. linky" before they switched challenges. I also combined it with Late night stampers challenge this week- masculine valentine. I used champagne shimmer paint (which you still can order at Stampin Up in a write in), with alcohol misting- then I sponged around the edge of very vanilla with the shimmer paint. I even used it with simply said heart. I used vintage vogue for background and - egads I used elegant bouquet embossing folder for the first time and I have had it for months!!! The sentiment is out of new occasion mini also called well scripted.

I have been missing in blog action, I am getting ready for my open house this week with cleaning, making make and takes and such. And drum roll.... I am in my new craft room!!! Pictures will be coming- just waiting for DH to install my bygel rails for all my punches. So, I have been spending time organizing the room and throwing out unneeded things.
