Freshly Made Sketches #96

Happy Wednesday!  I can't believe it's Wednesday already!  The boys are loving their French camp so I'm happy!  We've been playing board games in the afternoon and Caleb has been working on his reading!  He's doing a reading program through the local library and Christian bookstore.  Mom is trying to be very patient as we read together for 1/2 an hour to an hour a day!  He's doing really well and I'm really proud of his determination!

Wednesday brings us a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!  This week's fabulous hostess is Amy O'Neill!  Amy makes such beautiful cards and I'm so thankful that she's joined our design team! I also really love her creative sketch this week!

Apparently I thought I needed another birthday card with butterflies on it!  I decided that grey and pink would be the colours of the day today!  I do love them together!  I decided to use an embossed tag since trying to find DSP that matched was not going well.  I wanted to keep the background clean and white (it's my new obsession!).

Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Grey, Melon Mambo
DSP: Brights DSP Paper Stack
Stamps: Four You
Ink: Melon Mambo
Other: Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Basic Rhinestones, Melon Mambo Ribbon, Chevron Textured Embossing Folder, Dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by!
