Sweet Sketch Wednesday #166

Hello Friends! Welcome to Thursday, the gateway to the weekend ... my weekend promises to be exciting .. a trip to the commissary and trying out a new church. And hopefully, I will get to do some more crafting!

Today I am happy to share this card that I made for this week's Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge. I absolutely LOVE the sweet sketch wednesday blog and all the ladies on their DT. If you havent checked them out, you definately need to!

I was inspired by this MME Dilly Dally DP and this stamp set, Well Read WTG from My Favorite Things. I would love a couch with this print in my home! Of course, my husband would rather a couch of this awesomeness be in a study or, well, anywhere not in the living room.. haha.. And relaxing with a good book (on my kindle) is exactly what I want to be doing this weekend.

Thank you so much for stopping by and thank you again for your lovely comments, they really do make my day!

Supplies:
Stamps: Well Read WTG - my favorite things stamps
Paper: MME Dilly Dally, TE coordinating cardstock
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black
Tools/Accessories: TE coordinating ribbon, Rolled daily die (mft), TE coordinating brad, Copics
Technique: Paper Piecing, sentiment inside :o)
