Forget love... (Graphicat Blog Hop)

Today we're celebrating a re-launch of the Graphicat Sketches Blog with a fun blog hop! We've got a great group of ladies whose cards will inspire you today!

Some of us, like me, are participating as a 'last hurrah' since we're leaving the design team. It's been a fun group to be a part of, but even good things must come to an end... 

Other ladies in this hop are brand new to the Graphicat Team, so please be sure to say hello as you hop along! We'd love to have you leave comments along the way... word is that there may be some random prizes from Cheri!

The hop started at Cheri's blog, so if you'd like to start at the beginning (or if any links don't work along the way) please visit her for the whole list!

Our theme, along with using this fabulous sketch, is anti-valentine's day... I selected one of my fave sentiments for my card, and paired it with a gorgeous patterned paper from Canvas Corp (just discovered their papers, and I'm in love... we've got more coming soon to the store!) and some Tim Holtz dies, as well as a fabulous new "Cadbury Milk Chocolate" brown stain from Lindy's Stamp Gang- a fabulous new product coming soon to Creative Accents- it's so pretty and shimmery and affordable, you guys are gonna LOVE these things! 
Here's a close up of my little chocolate bundle (there's some Lindt in there... mmmm...) and the hearts coated with the new stain.  I added some details with Black Enamel Accents & Crackle Accents from Ranger.
Hope you like my card!  Funny thing, I'm craving chocolate now...

If you'd like to continue on the hop, please go visit Shelley!
