Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #86

Happy Thanksgiving weekend all my fellow canadian friends! We have a full weekend in our house...gatherings on both the Saturday and Sunday. I am posting quickly this morning then I'm off to attack my house (clean up mode).
Funerals in our family and such has caused me to pause and enjoy the sweet moments. It is so easy to be caught up in the rush of life....my schedule, the kids' schedule etc....that it can really seem that life is passing me by!
The quote on this card reminded me......"that it shall never come again" so I need to enjoy the sweetness of the moments. I am really looking forward to having my family here this weekend and spend some time just "being" with them.
Here are all my card deets:
Stamps:
School Primer (ATC), Sweet Bee (Rummage Bin) by Cornish Heritage Farms
Ink:
Slate, Denium Adirondack (Ranger)
Paper:
Patterned Paper (Melissa Frances)
Accessories:
Copic Markers
Ribbon (Melissa Frances)
Cheeky Clip (Making Memorie
Brads (Heidi Swap)
Scallop Border Punch (EK Success)
Sewing


Do you like to use card sketches as a jumping off point when you create? Do you enjoy inspiring others with your creations? What about a discount at the TE Store…would you enjoy that? Well then read on to see how you can join the Sketch Crew each week as they provide weekly inspiration using the TE Sketch!

Taylor is looking to add three new people to the Sketch Crew! If you’re interested in joining us, just create a card using today’s sketch and post a direct link to your creation on Taylor's blog by Friday, October 16th at 8 am PST. You may enter as many cards as you’d like. We'll be searching through your creations for the most clever and creative of the bunch! Taylor will notify the winners on Saturday, October 17th and they’ll join the Sketch Crew for the first time on October 23rd. Check out Taylor's blog for more details!

Here is the sketch so you can play along in TAYLOR'S challenge.
Don't forget to see what the rest of the sketch crew came up with:
Jami Sibley: More is More
