Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #152
I hope you're having a great week so far! The boys had their first day of school today! I can't believe we're dealing with a little boy in Grade 3 and my baby in Grade 1! How does that happen? Time has sure flown by! They both had a great first day. they both love their teachers and can't wait to go back tomorrow!
Today being Wednesday means we have a great new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today's beauty comes courtesy of the talented Cindy Hall! Cindy creates the most beautiful cards and I love checking out her blog! We have some great news at Freshly Made Sketches this week! Our August guest designer Kim Singdahlsen will be joining us on a permanent basis! We're so glad she's decided to join our crazy crew!
I couldn't help making a Christmas card! I don't know why! I decided to use my new Festival of Trees stamp set. I tried different colours for the trees first and then decided to try embossing them on vellum with silver embossing powder. I seemed to like that look the best.
Cardstock: Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Silver
DSP: All is Calm Specialty DSP
Stamps: Festival of Trees, Wondrous Wreath (Sentiment)
Ink: Versamark, Cherry Cobbler
Other: Sequins, Silver Embossing Powder, Dimensionals
I wanted to share a few pictures of our trip away! We had such a great vacation! I can't wait to go back! The top picture is of the boys at the Air and Space Museum at Dulles Airport. They both wanted to pose with one of their favourite planes - a Corsair! The next picture is of the Space Shuttle Discovery! Can you believe it? We saw a real space shuttle!!! It was amazing! If you haven't been to this museum you NEED to check it out! You won't be disappointed! The last picture is of my monkeys running in the ocean - it was the first time they'd dipped their feet in an ocean! They loved it! I loved it!
Thanks again so much for stopping by today! Please head on over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the amazing creations the design team has come up with!
I hope you have a fabulous day!
