Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #372

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're enjoying your week.  If you live in the Eastern part of Canada or the US you're digging out after some snow and starting to thaw after some crazy cold weather.  We didn't get as much snow here as I thought we would get - which is totally okay with me.  It's supposed to actually be warm and rain today which will just make for a big mess.  Oh the joys of winter!  I guess when we live in Canada, we kinda have to expect the cold and snow!!

We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is the lovely and talented Linda Callahan!  Linda makes amazingly beautiful cards.  I just love them!  She also tells great stories and has a sweet new grandson!  Head over to her blog to check it out!

I am still playing around with some of the fun goodies that I got for Christmas.  I need a birthday for my husband and thought I would work on it early rather than leaving it for the last minute - which I usually do!

I have had this Reverse Confetti Sentiment Essentials stamp set for a while now but only got the matching dies for Christmas.  Apparently I didn't realize when I bought them that there were matching dies!  I paired that with some Reverse Confetti paper and some embossing folders and was off to the races!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Smokey Slate, Blueberry Bushel
Paper: Paper Bliss 6X6 (Reverse Confetti)
Stamps: Sentiment Essentials
Other: Sentiment Essentials Confetti Cuts (Reverse Confetti), Subtle Texture Embossing Folder, Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder, Sequins (Taylored Expressions), Dimensionals

Thanks again so much for stopping in 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 glad you did!

Have an amazing day!

  2. I love your bright graphic design! Such fun! The embossed panels look great!
