Home is Where the Heart Is

TGIF!!! And an extra happy Friday it is since we are resuming Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenges after a two-week break for CHA. PLUS, it's RELEASE DAY at Taylored Expressions! Wait until you see all the new stamp sets!!! I was lucky enough to see (and purchase many of) them at the CHA Super Show and can't wait to ink them up!

This week's sketch has a cool twist with the circle element, which I turned on its side to place the balloon. The picture just doesn't do this card justice (note to self: invest in better lighting). I love the rustic look of the October Afternoon Farm Fresh DP and those adorable images from the Love Everywhere stamp set.

I'm sure enjoying making Valentine cards. There's something about hearts and red and pink and all that girly stuff that's making me happy!

Please do play with us in this week's sketch challenge... I can't wait to see what you come up with!
