Freshly Made Sketches Challenge!

It was a busy day!  I opted out of going to Caleb's soccer game tonight to go and get fruit for my fruit-eating monsters.  Jacob stayed home with me and it was nice to have my little friend for company!  Tomorrow is summer camp preparation. My friend and I are leading the scrapbooking/card making elective and need to figure out who is bringing what tools!  Should be fun!

Today brings us a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!  This week the design team has created some beautiful cards using Cindy's fabulous sketch!  I strayed a little from the sketch and make a little panel inside the card.  Just wanted to keep the sketch very white and clean.
I'm in LOVE with the new Quatrefancy Specialty DSP!  You probably noticed from my earlier card that it used the same paper and same butterfly stamp!  I just couldn't help it!  That Strawberry Slush ribbon is fabulous!  I love how stretch it is!!!

Cardstock: Whisper White
DSP: Quatrefancy Specialty
Stamps: Six-Sided Sampler, Papillon Potpourri
Ink: Strawberry Slush
Other: Strawberry Slush Ribbon, Basic Rhinestones, Elegant Butterfly Punch, Dimensionals

Here are a few pictures from the Hamilton Air Show!  We had a great Saturday with some fabulous weather!  Both boys have decided their favourite plane is the Lancaster.  They were both really "touched" by the story of Andrew Mynarski and his flight during WWII.

Thanks for stopping by!  Please head on over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the beautiful cards our fabulous design team has come up with!

Have a great day!
