Freshly Made Sketches #53

Happy Wednesday!  I love Wednesday's.  Wednesday's Jacob and I get to spend the day together!  These days will soon be over so I must learn to treasure them more and more!  Funny enough Jacob told me all about the kids that didn't obey Mrs. Cooper yesterday!  He's hilarious.  I thought for sure he'd be at the top of that list but so far so good!

Wednesday's also bring a new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches! This week's sketch is brought to us from the land down under and the fabulous Tui Nathan!  The stripes kinda threw me.  I didn't quite know what to do with them.  I decided to reduce the number slightly since I wanted to use wider stripes and finally crack open the Moving Forward stamp set!  It's so cute!  I paper pieced this stamp together a bit!  I thought it should be a two-toned boat!

DSP: In Colour (2012-2014) DSP Paper Stack
