Blast From the Past Blog Hop

Hello Delightful friends, family and hoppers!  I can't believe it's been a month already since the last Blast From the Past Blog Hop!  What a fast month, don't you agree?!
I was so glad that we had a choice this month 'cause I'm not at all into the "trick" season but definitely give me the sweets!  My first card follows the sketch very closely (thank you Sankari for another fantastic sketch!) and the second card I've done my own thing (which is pretty wild 'n crazy in the color scheme!)  If you're hopping along then you know that Taylored Expressions sponsors this customer blog hop every month (Thank you, Taylor!) and it features the "older" TE stamps, in this case anything released before August 2011.  All the participants are listed at the end of the post.  Grab a cup of coffee/tea and a "sweet" and enjoy the hop!
