Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #228

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great week!  It's March break here in Ontario and we are currently enjoying a relaxing week with my mom and dad!  The boys are in Grannie and Papa heaven!  There is a lot of driveway hockey (when it's not raining) and some intense games of Monopoly going on here!  I'm so thankful for a Papa who loves hanging out with his boys!

We have a great new sketch today at Freshly Made Sketches courtesy of Kim Singdahlsen.  Kim is amazing.  I love Kim's creativity and she is one of the leading enablers on our team! 

I knew right away that I wanted to use the Dot Spots stamp set from PTI when I saw this sketch.  No, this giant circle didn't terrify me at all.  Maybe because it's not an entire circle!!!  I stamped the circle using Pool Party and Bermuda Bay ink.  I used some Dazzling Diamonds to add a little sparkle!  We all need a little sparkle in our lives!  Now, I put my sentiment in the wrong spot.  I feel really badly about this.  I noticed it just before I left to visit my mom and dad and didn't have time to change it!  Thankfully I'm on the most forgiving Design Team and the girls are letting me stay!!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Bermuda Bay
Stamps: Dot Spot (PTI), In a Big Way (Reverse Confetti)
Ink: Stazon Black, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay
Other: Dazzling Diamonds, Dimensionals

Thanks again for stopping by!  I hope you will head on over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the fabulous cards the design team has come up with!  You'll be glad you did!

Have a fabulous day!


  1. Yep no worrites here with this circle! Love that dotted image! Pretty card! So glad you are having a great week with your family!

  2. Hello Jennifer: Something weird is going on at the Freshly Made sketches challenge blog page. All it shows are the cards by the DT and at the bottom the entries but there is no link to up load cards and the whole page is like gray.
    I've tried to get to it several ways but with no luck. I wonder if any of you have noticed this so you can maybe fix it?
    I hope so because this sketch is really pretty.
    Thank you.
    Maria Rodriguez.

  3. This is a cool stamp, Jen! And I love the touch of sparkle. Hope you're having a great time with your family this week!

  4. Enabler? Me?? (tee-hee!) I love the big circle (you may fool yourself into thinking it's part of a circle, but it's a circle!) The two colors and the sparkle make it so fun for a birthday card.

  5. Your ombre "circle" is just gorgeous, Jen, and I love the sparkle. Gorgeous card and the sentiment looks perfect just where it is :)

  6. Great minds think alike! I love how your circle sparkles!

  7. I keep wishing I had that PTI stamp set--now more than ever! This is one fabulous card!

  8. This is so pretty! I just love the colors you used and the sparkle you applied!

    have a blast with your family!



  9. Beautiful and clean! I love this stamp - it's perfect for these pesky circle sketches!
