Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge

Happy Friday! It's always a happy day when it's time for the bi-monthly Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge!!! Our sketch challenge is taking place over at SCS in the Taylored Expressions Forum. In fact, all you need to do is pop over to the TESC Sketch Challenge #144 Forum Thread for all the deets on this week's challenge, to grab the sketch and find out how you can win a $10 Gift Certificate to spend at TE by playing along with us... or a $20 GC if you use TE stamps!

I've been on break from crafting and blogging, so making a card for today's sketch challenge was... well... challenging! lol It felt really strange to sit down in my craft room (which, by the way, still needs a good purge and clean-up!). To "warm up," I took my color cues from the stamp set itself.

My card features images from the super cute Life is a Circus stamp set. I love this set!!! I can't wait to play with it some more.

Yours truly came up with the sketch (*grin*), so I'd be extra pleased if you'd join us for the challenge. You have until Thursday, August 25th to play... plenty of time! Come on, you know you want to! ;)

For lots of great inspiration, check out what the rest of the Sketch Crew has created (*swoon*). We're also welcoming two new crew members, Cassie and Margie, and a very special guest, Dawn!!!

I can't wait to see what you create! Enjoy!!!
