Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #245

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you've had a great week so far!  The boys and I are enjoying our first true week of summer vacation!  Last week was camp week at our church!  750 very excited kids! It was a great week and we ended the week very tired!!!  This week we are totally enjoying ourselves and will be treating ourselves to a trip to the Hockey Hall of Fame!

We have a great new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our fabulous hostess in the amazing Jen Mitchell!  Jen's cards are so gorgeous!   Please hop on over to her blog and check them out!

I had been feeling rather uncreative since the end of camp.  I needed a thank you card for a friend of mine.  He is an amazing artist and gave my boys (all three of them) some hand drawn airplane prints. They are incredible and the boys love them.  I wanted to thank him for an airplane card since he's a plane lover himself!  I am not totally thrilled with the card but once the boys write notes in it, it will convey how truly thankful we are!

Cardstock:  Kraft, Whisper White, Basic Black, Daffodil Delight
Stamps: Send me Soaring, Another Thank You
Ink: Stazon Black
Other: Stitched Rectangles (Lil' Inkers), Sun 'n Clouds Confetti Cuts, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'll head on over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the amazing cards the Design Team has created for you!!!

Have a fabulous day!!!



  1. This is so cute.....and perfect for your friend! Love the pop of the yellow sun! Glad you survived camp.....I would need to sleep for a week!

  2. Jen, I love the repeat of the thanks sentiment, it really reinforces the meaning. And he'll totally get the airplane part and appreciate it :) Sounds like you had a busy week, I can't even begin to fathom that many kids...eek! Enjoy your time with your boys!!

  3. What a perfect card for your friend! And that sun -- I love it! Glad you survived another camp week!

  4. This is so cool, Jen, and what a perfect card for your wonderful friend. I'm glad you're enjoying your summer!

  5. Hi Jen,

    First of all I hope you and your family are getting a good start to your vacation. Your camp sounded like a success.

    I love your card, its unique and fun!


  6. a lovely masculine card ! This plane is just gorgeous and really seems to be flying in the air. Great choice of color too

  7. LOVE your placement of the airplane at the top of the panel with the repeated sentiment below. The sun and clouds pop perfectly from the kraft!

  8. You're such a trooper! I would be exhausted for weeks after trying to entertain 750 kids! And I'm not sure what you mean by not being creative because this is pretty darn creative! The plane, the sun, and the clouds go together perfectly!

  9. Oh this is awesome! I love your use of the plane stamp set with that sun die - perfect combination that I may have to borrow (if that's ok?)

  10. Love your awesome masculine card Jen! And I'm with Narelle...I may have to Case this one myself!

  11. Could not be more perfect!! And totally not sure how on earth you survived but I know that church camp brings its own special energy.
