Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #92

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're all doing well!  It's been a busy week so far and I'm looking forward to Friday!  Our kids here in Ontario are still in school (at least they are in our school board)!  We have until Thursday and we are counting the hours!  I'm looking forward to being done my jobs at the school as well!

Wednesday brings us another sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches!  I'm this week's hostess and I've created a sketch that is a bit curvy!  I can't wait to see what you come up with on your cards!

I couldn't wait to use the new Chalk Talk stamp set (and of course the coordinating dies).  Who doesn't love something that makes life easier (like the dies do!)?  As I've mentioned before I LOVE the new Quatrefancy Specialty DSP.  I couldn't pass up on the fabulous Pool Party/Island Indigo combination!  I used the Pool Party embossing powder to create the image!

Cardstock: Pool Party (coordinations), Island Indigo, Whisper White
DSP: Quatrefancy Specialty
Stamps: Chalk Talk
Ink: Versamark
Other: Pool Party Embossing Powder, Clear Embossing Powder, Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon

Caleb's class put on some Robert Munsch plays today for the parents!  Caleb and three of his friends were staring in 50 Below Zero.  Caleb played the father!  His group did a fabulous job!  They are so sweet! This is Caleb sleeping outside in his "pyjamas" while Jason (played by Ian) is trying to wake him up!!!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you have a fabulous day!  Something I learned this week after reading a heart warming blog that if someone asks you how you are doing and you respond "tired" it sets the tone for the rest of the conversation and can actually make you feel more tired.  However...if you respond "awesome" it can actually help you feel better!  Give it a try!

Head on over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the beautiful cards the design team has created for you!



  1. Oh you make it look so easy! This card is just lovely! And kid plays are the best!

  2. Your card is beautiful Jen! I love those colors! And I'm so glad I have Chalk Talk on my wish list. Thanks for the great sketch this week!

  3. Ooh, I thought the sentiment was embossed! This is beautiful and I LOVE the embossed cardstock. I can't wait to get my hands on some of that!

  4. This really was a cool sketch, Jen! It is the most innovative and creative that I've used. I love the way that you used it, too. These colors are fabulous, and I love the way you stacked the pieces of the Chalk Talk set. It's going into my CASE file!

  5. This is a super sketch--I loved playing with it, and your card is just fab.

  6. Beautiful in blues! Fabulous card featuring those gorgeous new products (I can't wait until our catalogue starts tomorrow to order them myself!). Love this sketch too!
