Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #220

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great start to your week!  It's been a lot colder here this week than it has been.  That being said, it's no where near as cold as it was last year so we'll take this.   We finally have a bit of snow on the ground which makes the kids happy!  Caleb loves to shovel so he's happy to be of assistance whenever we need him!!!

We have a brand new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!  I am happy to be your hostess this week!  I always find coming up with sketches tough.  Of course I had to design a sketch with circles!  They say you should face your fears right?!  I designed this sketch with this stamp set in mind though!
I still love my Zig markers and can't stop using them!  I just want to colour everything in sight!  Unfortunately my 7 year old (who is writing utensil obsessed) feels that he should also have a right to use them so I kinda have to use them when he's not around!  It's taking me a bit to get the hang of these markers and when to use a water brush and when to not use the brush!  It's sure fun to play around with them.

Cardstock: Whisper White, Water Colour (Canson)
Stamps: Love Blooms (Reverse Confetti)
Ink: Stazon Black, Cucumber Crush
Other: Love Blooms Confetti Cuts (Reverse Confetti), Stitched Rectangles (Lil' Inkers), Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you get a chance to head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the amazing cards the Design Team has created for your viewing pleasure!

Have a wonderful day!


  1. I love that saying. Your card is so cute and bright!

  2. Hello Jennifer,

    Oh your watercolor is just fabulous. So smooth! I like all the white space you left.
    the stitching adds such a pretty subtle touch. Wish I were getting this card haha!
    I'd display it like... forever!


  3. Your flowers are lovely! Beautifully done! I still haven't mastered that watercolor effect with my zigs! Thanks for such a fun sketch!

  4. Looks to me like you have the hang of them because the shading here is really pretty! What a fun sketch this week. And if you can send Caleb down, I think I am going to have enough snow for everyone to shovel. ;-)

  5. I'm loving your cards featuring these markers, Jen! So bright and cheerful. And what a fabulous sketch - can't wait to see the gallery this week.

  6. This card is so SUPER cute, Jen! I love those brightly colored flowers (and the way you colored them is awesome). The bright colors and the crisp black with the white space is really stunning.

  7. Those flowers are the sweetest thing! And they are colored so beautifully! Love this bright and cheerful card!

  8. You are making beautiful things with these markers, and this card is no exception. I love the vibrant colors of these pretty flowers. This was a fun sketch, Jen!

  9. What a lovely cascade of gorgeous blooms, Jen ... brilliant colouring and shading ... and so deliciously vibrant against all that glorious white space! Thanks so much for your visit and sweet words! Anita :)

  10. I love to see gorgeous Spring cards while there is still snow on the ground, they remind me that Spring is really just around the corner.
    Beautifully colored, they really stand out with the pristine white background of those lovely stitched panels
    Thank you for sharing.

  11. Absolutely stunning Jen! Your colouring is just perfect - now I think I need to take a look at those zig markers....
