First Soft Pencil Thursday for 2010

I have been a busy girl the past couple days! Trying to get back into the swing of things after going on vacation is always a little rough, but this week has been extra crazy, what with getting the kids back in school and multiple dental appointments. I don't do dental appointments. Monday I did. And I get to go back twice this month for root canals. Plural. Lucky me!

Ahem.

Well, so anyway, today's dentist trip was for the eldest daughter's orthodontist. She got springs put on her teeth. Yup, she's a happy camper, too.

Today's Softpencil image is this absolutely adorable Valentine image called Two birds and Two Cats. Elizabeth has a whole new Valentine's collection out and you can see it on the Softpencil blog. I just love her artwork. It is so sweet!!

We were challenged to use red, olive and cream or ivory. This is what I came up with.

Since I'm still in multiple challenge mode, the card is also for the following challenges:
Fashionista Friday #15 - Colour your world: Use your favourite colouring method. I used Copics!
Pile it On #29 - Anything Digital! well, 'nuff said.
Fussy & Fancy Friday Challenge #1 - New: use something new. This is a new release! I think it counts. The sentiment (a Valentine's freebie from the Softpencil Papercraft Planet Group) is new to me, too.
HFOS#10 - Thinking about Love. I think that speaks for itself.
And lastly, StampTV's Blast From the Past challenge #4, which was to use a "cheater" bow.

Don't forget to head over to the Softpencil Blog and also to check out what the rest of the Softpencil design team has to share today. We've got a whole new cadre of Guest designers for the month of January. Let's give them a great big welcome and a lot of bloggy love! Links are on the left side.

Have a great one. I'll be back later with my AiFactory post.
