"One Sketch...Two Ways"

Happy Tuesday morning to my Followers, Friends, Visitors and Viewers.

Hoping all of you are experiencing the newness and renewed diligence for the beginning of this year.  It is day 5.  Have you stopped those resolutions you made on New Years Eve?  Are you still going forward no matter what comes your way?  Did you bring into this year all the excessive baggage  that was holding you down last year?  Only you can be responsible for you!  Your answer will only be shared by you and you alone.

For today's share, I am continuing with making cards and sharing them with you here and other places on the web.

MojoMonday:  http://www.mojomonday.blogspot.com/2016/01/mojo-monday-429-contest.html
has a sketch.  Quite frankly, this site puts out a sketch every Monday except for when they go on vacation.    I gave the sketch a try and liked it so much that I made another card and altered it just a little.
Here are the two cards and the sketch.

Entry for:  http://www.cropstop.com/blog/uncategorized/linky-party-11-anything-goes/

Paper used:  white Neenah cardstock for the base; black Recollection cardstock fro backing; Recollection Christmas Noel paper for all the other elements ( square, strip, circle and heart)
Sentiment:  done with eksuccess sweetheart script gold foil
Embossing Folder: the Paper Studio dots
Used white Chalk marker for dots around the heart
The same sketch was taken from mojomonday.blogspot.com but the square was slightly shifted to the right to form an angle instead of being straight.

The next time you  use a sketch, try alternating a piece or some of the pieces to give you a second or maybe a third card.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great day in whatever your heart desire.

Sending you a hug and LOVE,
Lois
