Freshly Made Sketches #88
This is probably going to be a shorter post...I kinda forgot it was Tuesday night and I needed to get this post up! Seems I'm mixing up my days and it's only the beginning of the week! I wonder what I'll be like by Friday! It was rainy here today and it seems to have left me a little foggy!
Today we have a new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches! This week's sketch is brought to us by Jen Mitchell! I love Jen's cards....she is incredibly talented!
I love the Pleasant Poppies stamp! It makes me happy and think of the Remembrance Day cards my mom makes which in turn makes me think of my Grandpa.
I love red and black together...don't know what it is. I have a new thing for red! I just bought a new red chair for my family room! I love it! I had to make my own ruffled ribbon for this card. I wanted to do it a bit differently but that's not what happened! I used the 3/8" taffeta ribbon in real red. How I love taffeta ribbon! The poppies are hand cut because I tried colouring them again but sadly failed miserably again. Honestly...how slow of a learner can I be?! I hand cut the stems as well because I only wanted some of the poppies! Yes, I could have masked them but I do like cutting!
