Freshly Made Sketches #162

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great week!  We've had two beautiful days here in Southern Ontario.   The temperatures today were so warm...okay, November warm!  It was so nice but I believe that we will be back to seasonal temperatures tomorrow.  I sure enjoyed it today though!

We have a great new sketch today at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our fabulous hostess this week is none other than the amazing Kim Singdahlsen.  Her cards are just beautiful and you need to head over to her blog to check them out!

I had in my head a vision of what my card would look like.  After so many attempts I can't even count, it didn't look at all the way I envisioned!
I need to get some more Christmas cards done.  If I don't get them done we are going to have some serious issues!  I could use a day to sit in my craft room and make Christmas cards!!!  Hopefully soon!

I got out my old Ornament Keepsake stamp set.  It's one of my favourites and of course it comes with a coordinating die which just makes everything so easy!

Cardstock: Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White
DSP: Seasons of Style
Stamps: Ornament Keepsake
Ink: Versamark
Other: Black Embossing Powder, Ornament Framelit Dies, Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, Silver Sequins, Dimensionals

Thank you so much today!  Please head on over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog to see what the Design Team has created for you!  I can't wait to see what you create this week!

Have a fabulous day!
