Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #342



Hello!
Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great start to your week!  We are in school wind down mode which is finally nice.  Caleb had what we hope is his last test today.  I know the teacher is just trying to keep them busy and out of trouble but I think we're all pretty much done!!!  Just a week and a half to go!

We have a got a great new sketch for you at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is the amazing Amy O'Neill!  She is our colour master and she can mix and match colours like no ones business.  She's also amazing with embellishments and getting thread to make these perfectly amazing circles!!!  It's a skill I don't possess!!  Head over to her blog and check it out!


I used this sketch to make a Father's Day card for my Dad.  I don't have a lot of masculine paper or stamps so I pulled out some of this Christmas paper from last year since it was about as masculine as I was getting.  I only have one Father's Day set and it's a retired one from SU.  I kinda thought the card needed something so I added in some arrows using the arrow punch!

Supplies:
Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black. Old Olive
DSP: Merry Little Christmas  (SU Retired)
Stamps: Best Dad Ever (SU Retired)
Ink: Basic Black
Other: Arrow Punch, Dimensionals

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

We can't wait to see what you create this week!

Have a fabulous day!

Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #341


Hello!
Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great week!  We're having a good week!  The kids have been enjoying their evenings in the pool and I've been trying to get some videos done for my "other" business while they're swimming away!  They've cooperated nicely!  I think we're pretty much done with school around here.  It's so hard to get motivated to do homework when it's so gorgeous outside and the boys just want to be in the pool or playing some basketball!  2.5 weeks left to go!!

We have a fantastic new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is the amazing fussy cutter and flower stamper extraordinary Narelle Farrugia!  Narelle's cards are always gorgeous so head over to her blog to check them out!


I had a specific card in mind when I made this and I know I wanted to use the Botanical Builders Framelits!  I am so sad they retired but they're forever get use at my house!!!  I went with white and black, well, because I love it far too much!  I wanted to keep this clean and elegant!

Supplies:
Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black
Other: Botanical Builders Framelits Dies, Sweet Celebrations Dies (Lil Inkers), Celebrate Word Die (Lil Inkers), Black Rhinestones (SU), Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the gorgeous cards the Design Team has created!  You will definitely be inspired!

Have a fabulous day!

Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #340


Hello Everyone!
Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great start to your week!  We're having a great week here. My oldest got braces on yesterday.  Let's just say that he's not as impressed as I'd hoped he be.  His food has to be cut into tiny little pieces for right now - until he gets used to chewing with the braces on.  To think we have to survive 18 months of this!  Then do it all over again with the second one!  What we do for our kids to have straight teeth!

We have a great new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is the lovely and extremely creative Karren Johnson.  Karren's colouring is always mind blowing and you need to go and check out her blog.  I'm totally going to New Zealand for colouring lessons!!!


I love the versatility of Karren's sketch.  I knew right away what I wanted to make.  I know, it's shocking.  I couldn't believe it myself.  I found the stamp set that I wanted to use and then had to go searching through bags and bags of camp projects to find the dies I needed!  I am thankful I wrote down which bag they were in, it's just that I haven't labelled the bags yet!!!  I coloured in the letters using the Stampin' Blend Markers and may have used some Wink of Stella on the word "Shine".

Supplies:
Cardstock: Whisper White, Daffodil Delight
Stamps: Shine Bright (Reverse Confetti)
Ink: Memento Black
Other: Sun n Clouds Confetti Cuts (Reverse Confetti), Simples Stripes Embossing Folder, Dimensionals, Wink of Stella

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the gorgeous cards the Design Team has created for your inspiration!  I hope you'll also welcome our newest Guest Designer Laurie Unger!

Have a fabulous day!
