Home Sweet Home

There's nothing like being in the comfort of your home. Being able to do the things you love and enjoy. For me that is big time crafting. I miss that when it is not possible to have time to do that.

As I was cleaning my craft room the other day I came across this paper that I had of my many stashes of paper. But the minute I saw it I knew I had to use a Digi Stamp Boutique Image  that I already had. I knew it would be so perfect.

Our sponsor this week  for Sweet Sketch Wednesday is Digi Stamp Boutique. This house is one of Sally Ann's sweet images. I had so much fun with the bright colors. I needed three strips of paper and the house paper worked perfect for that. Be sure and check out Sally Ann's site. She has new images every month.
The design team has created some sweet cards this week.
I also have a new Design team member, Patti Painter.

I want to welcome her to the team.
 She makes such sweet cards as you will see in weeks to come.

Come back and see me again as I love to read your sweet comments.
