Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #297

Happy Wednesday!  I trust everyone is having a great start to their week!  We are in total vacation mode here and with the exception of a few appointments, we've been relaxing, swimming, reading and biking.  It's been fabulous.  This year our family decided to cut out all evening activities and to do lots of mountain biking together.  It's been the best decision!  We have totally enjoyed our evening (and some afternoon) rides together.  It's been amazing to watch the boys gain skill, confidence and endurance.  They can hop rocks and logs like pros now!

We have a great new sketch today at Freshly Made Sketches courtesy of the amazingly talented Jen Mitchell!  Jen makes beautifully creative cards and often dominates when it comes to "clean".   Head over to her blog and you'll see what I mean!

I love Jen's sketch. At first I was going with a completely different look but then changed my mind.  I used the Ice Cream Parlor DSP and the Frozen Treats stamps and dies at camp almost every day.  The kids loved ice cream cards and I must say, I do too!   Of course if you look closely you'll see some Wink of Stella on that chocolate sauce!!!  I just couldn't resist!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Watermelon Wonder
DSP: Ice Cream Parlor
Stamps: Frozen Treat
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Other: Frozen Treats Framelits, Banners Framelites, Pinewood Planks Dynamic Embossing Folder, Wink of Stella, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the fabulous cards the Design Team has created for you.  You won't be disappointed.

Have a fabulous day.
