It feels so good to be back to creating non-Christmas cards, doesn't it? And we have the perfect sketch for you today at Create with Connie & Mary. Here's the sketch:

And here is a masculine-inspired Valentine's card:

Some of you will not understand this but because I am from Maine and around lumberjacks all the time, this was one of my first picks from the new Occasions Catalog. This guy could be a family member, a neighbor, a co-worker, a friend, you name it! Love the flannel shirt and I keep saying he's so homely, he's cute. And what about the neat sentiment:
