TGIF! ok...in New Zealand at least. Tonight is the opening night of Wellington Saints basketball - we have season tickets this year, so my Fridays will be spent in a (cold) stadium. Good excuse to wear my growing collection of self-crocheted scarves - todays dilemma is do I want to take the one I'm working on right now with me to crochet during time outs or is that just too geeky?(I'll probably end up taking it - it'll keep my hands warm)

So I have an addiction - and I'll admit it right now because you MUST have noticed. I LOVE this Fishtail Banner Die-namic (it's only $8.95! crazy!), and I also seem to be sponging everything with crumb cake ink lately. It's not a problem...yet...I probably could make a card without these two things....but, I just don't want too! Let me know if you think I need an intervention further down the road.
I've used this weeks awesome WSC #15 - I've missed two sketches so far this year, I need to go back and catch up because they have all been awesome! I'm also playing along in the Ways To Use It challenge at SCS to use people stamps on your creation.

The papers are from the Stella and Rose Hazel pack by MME, and I think that might be one of my favourite Pure Innocence images, that giant heart is just too cute. I'm in love with these colours - aqua and red together rock my world - I have an entire Pinterest board dedicated to this combo.
Whew...that gorgeous sentiment JUST fit on my layer - which is great, because it is perfect.

Wishing YOU, all my lovely visitors a wonderful day and lots of happiness! Have a great weekend!

  1. so gorgeous Sarah! i think this may be one of my favorite cards ever! gorgeous colors & papers & the little PI couldn't be sweeter! you rock!

  2. Mmmmm ... nice colours ... nice card! And nothing wrong with crumb cake ink and fishtail banners ... that sounds like a good addiction to me. Jealous of your season tickets that sounds like fun ... and not too geeky to take your crochet but might look a bit Nana like. I so wanted to take my crochet to the school prizegiving thing last night ... but I didn't. :) Need you to show me how to make a scarf.

  3. I am with you girl, I am addicted to the Fishtail Banner! This card is AMAZING...totally drool worthy!!!

  4. AWWW Sarah, this is over the top cute! Love the paper piecing and this sweet PI image! Hugs ~S~

  5. Oh I love that banner too, will need to get it soon....among other things, lol. Love your coloring and your card design. Crumb Cake away, it's all fabulous.

  6. Awesome. I love the banner and the distressing. Your DP is an eye catcher too.

  7. Adorable!!! The flowers on the banner and the scalloped hills, love it!

  8. Amazing! Love all the layers, and now I need to play with this paper again!
