I <3 U

Good morning! It's a bitterly cold one here in NH, but that's perfect weather for crafting. I have been uber-productive this week: gym three times, lots of cleaning of the house, trying to get organized in the craft department.....which is why I haven't had anything to share until today. After two weeks without a new Unscripted Sketch it's time to create!

This week's sketch had me a bit stumped so I turned it on it's side and turned the circles into hearts....

This was mailed off this week with a bunch of other valentines to Operation Write Home. Another goal in the new year is to send at least a few cards a month to this great organization, so soldiers can write home. 2010 total so far: 20 cards. The deadline for Valentines has now passed so I'll be working on everyday cards for a bit--for both me and OWH. I'm out of birthday cards!!!

So dust off those craft supplies (or find them in my case) and use this week's sketch for a card, layout, altered project...whatever! Can't wait to see what you create. Check out all the DT's work this week, and head to Unscripted Sketches to upload your work....can't wait to see it!

As for my New Year's winner I used (but am not technilogically savy enough to get a picture of it).....

I agree that resolutions are pointless as far as I'm concerned. You have to figure out what works for you and go with it! Good luck getting in shape- that's one of my goals, too! Happy New Year!!!

SK, I have your address so you'll get a nice belated birthday list and maybe something else in the mail!


Paper: Kraft, Real Red, Very Vanilla, Candy Lane dsp, pink scrap

  1. what a stunning card! and i can't get a pix of either!

    kudos to the lucky winner!


  2. This card is so pretty. I've been a longtime fan of your work, but this is one of my favorites.

  3. You did a great job with the sketch. This is a cute Vday card. So nice of you to set one of your goals as donating more cards. I never have a goal of how many. But every 2 or 3 months I pick a new charity and make at least a dozen cards for them. Last year I think I ended up donating almost 100 cards.

  4. Hi Caryl,
    I love your card. It helped me figure out how to use the sketch. I think we can send love cards to OWH at any time so I am keep making them. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Caryl this is so cute! I love what you did with the sketch.
    It is cold here too. I am so sick of cold. It is just painful!
    You have to tell me what 1<3U is. I have been teaching "less than" this week so < is less than to me. How was your first week back? Wow, it has only been one week? That tells you how my week was. We had a 2 hour early release and 2 hour delay because of 6 inch. of snow. Is it April yet?????
    I love your card! Have a great second week.

  6. Hi it is me again! I forgot to tell you that I love your new heading. Is that what you call the picture at the top of a bog? Very cool. I love the way you share a little piece of you with your picture.
    Hugs again,

  7. Ohhh your card is sooo cute. I tried so hard to get lots of hearts in that place but couldn't pull it off like you did.

  8. I love this Valentines day card and your card mission is wonderful! Beth
