Kitschy Kard

I'm totally a Modern Homemaker. Domestic Diva. Mommy Extraordinaire. I'm also pretty darn sassy, but you already knew that. The new Modern Homemaker collection from October Afternoon makes my heart pitter-patter... serious love. It is PERFECT combined with the new What's Cookin'? stamps from Taylored Expressions. A match made in housewife heaven. And since I was playing with my new TE goodies, I also thought I should participate in their Sketch Challenge: #134.

My color combination was inspired by The Play Date Cafe. So whimsical and fun!
What are your favorite challenges? I'd love to know some great places to play! Enjoy your weekend... we'll be prepping for our Thanksgiving travels and cooking up lots of goodies for the road.

Stamps: Taylored Expressions: What's Cookin'?, PTI: Round and Round; Patterned Paper: Modern Homemaker by October Afternoon; Tools: PTI: Mat Stack 1, Limitless Layers Circles, Lg. Scallop Border die; Sassy Somethings: SU Playground buttons (retired), PTI Simply Chartreuse felt
