the sky's the limit...

I love that saying:

the sky's the limit

Here's what I have to share with you today...


I've been wanting to ink up my Practicing Creativity Stamps and when I saw their new sketch challenge, I knew that I wanted to play along!


I used my new MME Stella and Rose papers which was perfect for the latest CR84FN Color Challenge:


This card is also perfect for the Paper Piecing challenge going over on the Moxie Fab World Blog!



It might be not be so visible but, the orange patterns I used on my card are different....I like how I captured the pattern that I pieced for the hot air ballon...

I'm the hostess with the mostess over at E.A.D Designs today...


Check out the very fun Spring Fling Color Challenge:


The wonderful thing about the E.A.D Designs Color Challenge is that everybody is a winner!

25% off for everyone who plays
$20 GC to one random winner

Now how fun is that?

So pop on over there, leave me some of that fabbie bloggie love:)
