I Love you More than Pinterest and a Blog Hop!

Morning Sketchers and happy Saturday to everyone!

This week is a very special week over at Sketch Saturday  - it is our 300th challenge today and today's sketch is a remake of the first ever Sketch Saturday sketch, designed by Jo Edwards, the founder.We have a blog hop to celebrate - see the details below.
My card is the Valentines Day card I made for my husband. We have a running joke that I love Pinterest more than I love him because I spend a lot of time Pinning rather than talking to him! So I saw this card by Jennifer Mcguire I just HAD to re-create something similar. I didn't have the iphone die that she used so I printed off a picture of an iphone and covered it in glossy accents for a very similar effect.  Sadly after spending a lot of time and effort on this card, he wasn't very impressed afterall, muttering something about '...well I should think so...'. Oh well, men are tough to please I suppose! I enjoyed making it nonetheless.


We are blog hopping today over at Sketch Saturday! It is our 300th challenge today and today's sketch is a remake of the first ever Sketch Saturday sketch, designed by Jo Edwards, the founder.
