The sketch at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge this week is a nice easy and versatile one, so I've decided to give it top billing today.  It's a fun challenge to play with few limitations, other than the usual ...being something new, linking to your blog.. and using the sketch.  I don't know why more crafters don't take advantage of their great sketches and play.
  Here's the birthday card I've made using this week's sketch:
(Products used are all CTMH; but that's not required to play.)

Challenges I am entering include:
Crafting with Friends Challenge #8 - Always Anything Goes
Simply Paper Craft Challenge #15 - Always Anything Goes
And here is my card for Mojo Monday,
definitely a quick and simple card.  This a precolored digi image and sentiment from Deedee's Designs set "Pumpkin Patch

Challenges into which I am entering this card...
Allsorts Challenge Week 332 - No Designer Paper 
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge Week  332 - Autumn/Halloween/Thanksgiving/BonFire Night

 Thanks for visiting today!
Can you believe I spent the last 2 days at a stamping show and didn't use one thing that I got there?  
I will remedy that later this week because I got those Crazy Birds, and they'll be the first thing I open!

  5. Love you Hopscotch card - that is one of my favorite papers. I know why you did not get out your new stuff - it is because you are too tired from working so hard teaching the Make and Takes at the Close To My Heart booth!
