Sketch Saturday #346 - Pick-A-Sketch

It's Saturday and time for another great sketch at
and we are delighted to be sponsored by
Drawn with Character

As January is one of those months with five Saturdays in it - this week you can Pick-A-Sketch from any of Sketch Saturday's previous sketches between #215 and #345.  You can find our past sketches here.  You just need to let us know which one you used by including a copy of the sketch in your post.   I remember the first time I used Carrie's fab sketch #253.   I liked the card I made for it back in April 2013 and I like this one too. 

I used Valentine's Monster Love 2 which you can find here.  The image comes with the monsters standing separately; each with their own balloon but I merged one in front of the other and removed one of the balloons.  We wanted to send love to the recipient but not go overboard because he's a guy.  The monsters are supposed to represent the hubster and me.  I'm the fat yellow one!  I thought these guys were just crying out for googly eyes and I especially like how 'mine' turned out.    My papers are My Mind's Eye Lost & Found "Oliver".  I used a Martha Stewart punch for the fence and a Papertrey Ink die for "birthday".  And here is the sketch I used but remember you can use any of the ones in our archive...
Now we would like you to scooch some space on your craft table and come and play along with us.  Don't forget to share some love with my lovely teamies too.

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - hearts
