Simply Sketched Sympathy for FabFri35

Hey there! Happy Valentine's Day! I hope that you are not one of the many, many people that are buried under mega amounts of snow (like I am). We got about 12" overnight Wednesday night and another 3" or so during the morning yesterday for a total of 15" by around noon yesterday. Crazy, crazy winter! I'm so ready for spring! How about you?

So, I'm glad that we didn't make any major Valentine's Day plans because we wouldn't have been able to keep them anyway. Valentine's Day is a special day for my hubby and me. We met on a blind date on Valentine's Day in 2000! Nothing like a high pressure first date, right? Cupid must have been smiling on us that day though because here it is fourteen years later and we are still going strong.

Anyway, you did not come to hear about the snow or how I met my husband, you came to see my latest Fab Friday card. We have a sketch this time. Even though it is Valentine's Day, I don't have a valentine to share this time. Sorry about that! Poor planning on my part. I made this card as a possible class card and then decided that my customers probably wouldn't like the watercoloring. I don't find this image particularly easy to color, and I am not very skilled when it comes to watercoloring, but I try. I can't wait for Stampin' Up to release Blendabilities, their new alcohol markers soon. I hope that they will help me hone my skill! Anyway, here is the fun Fab Friday sketch...

Marla - so lovely! I really like how you understated the doily component of the sketch, and I'm inspired by your use of bright, happy colors for a sympathy card.

I think you did a great job watercoloring Marla! And I like the fresh color combo! TFS!
