The weekend is here and in Oklahoma the weather is perfect for staying in my studio! That’s really not an excuse. If I am not cooking or doing laundry, that’s where you will find me.
My project today is for the month of February and Valentine’s Day. Rick has drawn one happy little dude for us, “Happy Heart Day 2014.” I call him my “happy little dude” mainly because I fell in love with that little face. It just makes you smile. You can find Happy Heart Day in Rick’s Zibbet shop or in his Etsy shop.
If you receive Rick’s monthly newsletter, you will notice some changes. There are no more monthly freebies. But there are two ways of obtaining Happy Heart Day. You can receive this image with any purchase between today and Feb. 15. Thereafter it will be available in the two shops listed above. We are still having our monthly challenge, but there is a change on the way the prize is awarded. The more people entering our monthly challenge the bigger the prize. The closing date for this challenge is Feb. 22. This gives the EDT time to visit your blogs and decide who we think is the winner; no Random.org is used for our challenges.
On to my project. My happy little dude was colored with Copics and a few Spica pens were added for some sparkly. The designer paper is BasicGrey’s Sweet Threads collection. My cardstock is from my favorite company, Stampin’ Up!, and is in Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive.
