Love Is In The Air...

Hi Everyone!  Happy Monday!

Today, we have another fantastic sketch over at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.  This was a fun one to work with (as usual) and I encourage all of you to come over, check us out and play along!  The rest of the talented DT creations will be hitting the AHSC blog on Wednesday if you are looking for even more fabulous inspiration.

Here is this week's sketch:

And here is my card:

As per normal, I decided to play along with a few challenges while getting my DT card put together:

I always have such a fun time playing along with these ladies and this week is no different.  The challenge this week was to use Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake and Basic Black.  I hope they don't mind but I had to substitute Real Red for the Cherry Cobbler...

I haven't had a chance to play along with these ladies for a while and I so love when I do.  This week's challenge is to use red, white and kraft.  I was also definitely inspired by their inspiration photo below.

This a new challenge for me - a friend of mine came across this one.  I am looking forward to continuing to play along every chance I get.  This week's theme at the watercooler is "New".  So I have used a new stamp set - Hello Life - and the new Stacked With Love DSP stack.  Both are from Stampin' Up!'s new Occasions Catalogue.
