Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #275

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you've had a great start to your week!  The week is flying by here!  Did you have a nice Valentine's Day yesterday?  We had a lovely day here.  It was sunny for a good chunk of the day and nice and warm.  Melted some of the snow away!  We indulged in some chocolate covered strawberries after dinner.  They are an annual family tradition!  I probably should make them more often because they sure are delicious!

We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is the amazing Narelle Farrugia.  Narelle is the queen of gorgeous flowers and fussy cutting.  Head over to her blog and you'll see exactly what I mean!!  Super talented!

I opted for a different card for this sketch.  I made it but it just wasn't doing it for me.  Not sure why but I didn't love it.  I then discovered that I needed a card for my friend Tracey who finished her last radiation treatment last Tuesday.  She is in our bootcamp class and has been at almost every class throughout her chemo and her radiation.  A true inspiration for us!  Our group wants to congratulate her on finishing her treatments!

I love this stamp/die set from Lil' Inkers!  The flowers look like they're inked a little weird but it's really that they're covered in Wink of Stella.  You had to know that right?!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Smokey Slate
Stamps: Warm Welcome (Lil' Inkers), Sentiment Flags (Lil' Inkers)
Ink: Stazon Black, Crushed Curry, Real Red, Gumball Green, Marina Mist
Other: Basic Rhinestones, Warm Welcome Dies, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog to check out the beautiful cards that the Design Team has created for you!  We can't wait to see what you come up with this week!

Have a great day!
