{Sweet Sketch #10} In the Crazy Quilt of Life ~


It's Wednesday already and time for another Sweet Sketch Challenge!


The sketch designer ~ Arlana of Sweetberry Designs ~ created a layout this week that really pushed me out of my comfort zone! I mean WAY out! :)

Now, I'm really looking forward to seeing what all the other Sweet Sketch Team members did with this one... and I'm curious what YOU can do with this sketch! You're *all* invited to play along!

This is one of my favorite stamp sets. I received it last Christmas from my sweet DIL Jami. It's Quilter's Sampler Additions & Sentiments by Papertrey Ink and it comes complete with several different quilt patterns and coordinating sentiments too. Love it and should use it more often!



Below is a photo of the inside of the card. This sentiment is one of several good ones . . .





Gotta tell you that I'm *really* enjoying all the comments lately! :) You make me SMILE...and even LOL sometimes too!! :) I'm thankful you're in my block of friends! :)

Smiles 2 U,
