A Happy HELLO--Atlantic Hearts Sketch #17

Hello folks! Here's another fun sketch from Atlantic Hearts:

I am still away from home, so making do with the limited crafting supplies at hand! Sometimes limits can work to your advantage; not sure if it did the trick this time... I would have liked more card-stock choices.
My card, above, features some lovely Chiyogami papers my husband brought back for me, from a recent business trip to Japan. I stuck with the hexagons pretty closely, turning the biggest one into a six-petaled flower. The sentiment is a Papertrey Ink stamp set my sister, Morag, brought with her to PEI.

Just to show how freely you can play with a sketch, here's her take on the same design. We sat down together this morning. Same supplies and tools; totally different card!
Don't you love how she frayed the edge of her rug? 
Morag has not posted anything on her blog in a long time!!! So I'm hoping this kick-starts her habit again...once she's back home, with more crafting goodies at her disposal.


Off you go, to the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge blog, to see some more creations with this week's sketch. Our design team rocks, just sayin'...  You have until Sunday August 25th to link up for challenge #17; check back the following Wednesday for the winners.

Happy crafting,


  1. Those papers are gorgeous! I love those bright colors and that flower in the top right of the first card is so pretty!

  2. Can your husband bring me some papers too from Japan. They are great, love the pop of colour they provide. Love how you added the flower.

  3. This card is awesome !! Love that flower and those beautiful bright colors. Great job

  4. Love the big flower! The paper is very nice. Like the washi tape?

  5. So adorable, love the flowers!


Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts!
