Sweet Sketch Wednesday # 163



Hello Friends! Happy Weekend! So this is my third card and third blog post on my crafting "come-back trail" and it feels pretty good! I, as all of you do, love papercrafting. I really missed it so much during those long months of absence. I am back looking for fun challenges to participate in trying to get my followers / commenters up.

Today, I made this card for one of my all-time favorite challenge blogs, Sweet Sketch Wednesday's sketch #163. The ladies over there are always so sweet in their comments and how they share a little about their part of the world. Also, the design team is always so inspirational!

I chose to ink up this adorable stamp set from Taylored Expressions, called Sky's The Limit, which just happens to come with a coordinating Taylored Die set.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! I hope you like what you see, and I hope you stop by again soon! I (hope) plan to have more to share very soon!


I have yet to figure out the new way everyone is sharing their supply list .. Inlinkz .. I need my BFF, Cassie to show me what to do! So, I will list my supplies the old fashioned way .. (sheeish I feel old)

Stamps: TE Sky's the Limit
Paper: TE March KI Kit, Echo Park This & That Graceful dp
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black
Tools/Accessories: TE Sky's the Limit dies, Echo Park This & That brads

Hi Christi, welcome back I've missed you. Wow what a come back card awesome work!!! I love your balloons floating through the sky and your clouds. Pretty colours and design papers and great embellishments. My son's go to a school in a New Zealand town called Hamilton and most mornings on fine days they will see Hot Air balloons floating past their windows in their class rooms, or early on a Sunday morning with the mist and the sun shinning through the clouds this is such a awesome sight. They have a festival there each year for Hot Air Balloons. Great card and thanks so much for sharing your card with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and good luck.
