You Melt my Heart!

Congratulations Hambo Hoedown on your 100th Challenge! 
What a fun image! {Snow Heart ~digital image by Hambo Stamps}  The heart can be colored as snow or red for a Valentine or Love Note.  What is the Challenge you ask???  Use one of their cute images and sentiments with their sketch. I turned the sketch sideways since I like making horizontal cards for Operation Write Home.

Hambo's images are great for improving my coloring skills.  I see here I forgot to put shadows on the snow to the left of her boots....guess I'll have to practice some more.

I'm also trying to stretch myself by entering other challenges such as this 7 or less hosted by Marie at My Creative Creations.  I don't use a lot of embellishment so I thought it would be easy, but the products add up fast. The simple card I made yesterday had too many!  You can check out her blog post to see what counts or doesn't.
