Sweet Sketch Wednesday #223

Hello friends!!  Time for a new Challenge over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday!!  This week we are Sponsored by A Day for Daisies - so many wonderful images!!  I used the image "Best Friends".  Love the sweetness of this image, two friends sitting in a big old easy chair sharing a favorite book!!

Here is this week's Sketch...

And here is my card...

I used papers from Lili of the Valley and lace trim from my Stash...  Gotta love the Stash!!

Head on over to the Sweet Sketch Wednesday Blog and check out the rest of the Design Team cards - they are truly AwEsOmE!!!  I do hope you will join us, I can't wait to see what's behind your curtain...

This week's Winner will receive a $12 Gift Certificate to use at ADFD!!

Blessings to you!!


  1. Such a sweet card Sally. Reminds me of me and my sister when we were kids - she'd choose the book, look and the pictures and make me read it to her! I think she would still do the same now lol.

    Which LOTV papers did you use? I love them and think I might have to take a quick trip to the shop (so lucky to only live 15 minutes away!).

    Hope you have a great week.


    1. Hi Holly - oh how I would LOVE to be able to go to the LotV store!! The paper is from the Nit Wit Collection, 8x8 pad " Country Lady". I love their papers and just adore their stamps!!
      Enjoy your shopping trip and think of me - hahaha!!

  2. What a darling image (I think I said that one nearly everyone's card this week, but ADFD has some REALLY sweet images). I really like the lovely lace that you edged your curtain with and the chintz-like papers ... this card just feels homey. Love it!

  3. Sally, I really loved working with this sketch this week. It was really a fun one. Your really looked outside the box on this one. Your card is sooo adorable. Your curtain is is like someone is peeking around the corner watching the adorable children reading. I really love your card. Sooo sweet.
    Hugs, Nancy

  4. Hi Sally thanks so much for your great posting this week over a SSW, it really makes me look forward to summer evenings. I loved working with this sketch this week, it was fun it really made me think about it planning it whilst I was standing in the shower. I love your card with these sweet children reading their books in the lounge and someone looking through the window at them just so cute. Love your colours and design papers for your card. Take care wishing you a wonderful week and happy crafting.

  5. Adorable Sally, absolutely adorable! Such a cutie of an image. Love your curtain too. What a fun sketch.


  6. This is so cute and that lace around the curtain is so sweet! Great post this week too! Take care!

    Peace & Luv,

  7. Sally,
    I feel like I am peeking in on the kids while they are having a play date and doing something adorable! Such a sweet card. Have a great weekend.
    Hugs, Heide
