The Perfect Blend

Hello!  Today's the day for the whole Avocado Arts Pit Crew to share our creations with this month's set, Smitten With You and a peek of the January set, Warms My Heart. Plus, there's a chance for you to win one of the cute sets pictured at the end of this post.  All you have to do is leave comments as you visit each Crew member and you'll be entered!

I had so much fun combining the 2 sets this month and got a little silly!  I just love that the dotted coffee cup is a nice big size - big enough for a penguin to swim in!  heehee!

I pulled out the Amy Tangerine Sketchbook paper pad for bright papers and yes, that is indeed more washi tape! I can't seem to put it down!

It took a bit of masking to put the little guy in his "bath" but it wasn't difficult at all.   The sentiment is also from the January set.  I love the mixed font sizes - I think it will get a lot of use for this Valentine's Day season and beyond!  It's hard to see but the little hearts have a layer of Glossy Accents on them.

Here's a list of the Avocado Arts Pit Crew members to visit today and remember to leave comments along the way! Hope you win!  Have a great day!
