Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #133

Happy Wednesday!  Hope you're having a great week and had a wonderful Easter weekend.  We had an amazing weekend as a family.  I'm sad I didn't get to see my parents but we had a very nice visit with my aunt and uncle.  I was able to get out and see both boys fly their air planes this weekend.  It was amazing to see both of them and see how far they've come!  We went for a really nice family hike to see some waterfalls and then spent a wonderful morning at the new aquarium in downtown Toronto!

Today being Wednesday means that we have a fabulous new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!  This week's incredibly talented hostess in the one and only Cindy Lovell!  If you haven't been to Cindy's blog you need to head there now and check out her amazing creations!

At first the sketch kind of stumped me but then I realized I had better get cracking on Mother's Day cards!  It will be here in no time!  I like sketches that stretch my brain!!!  Funny thing was that it wasn't the circle that stressed me out but the square - which turned into a rectangle on my card!!!!

Cardstock: Basic Black, Whisper White, Pool Party
DSP: Sweet Sorbet
Stamps: Petite Petals, Well Scripted
Ink: Basic Black
Other: Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon, Petite Petals Punch, Black Candy Dots (non-SU), Scalloped Circle Dies (non-SU), Dimensionals

Thanks again for stopping by!  Please head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog to see the amazing cards our Clean Team has come up with!  You will not be disappointed!

Have a fabulous day!
