Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #375

Hello!
Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great start to your week!  We ended up with another snow day yesterday and the schools were closed.  I figured it might be a snow day so advised my kids to sleep in.  Nope.  Wasn't going to happen.  Both of them up at 7:15!!  They're both praying that school is cancelled again today!  Too funny!

We have a great new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week!  Our hostess is our favourite French designer Cecile Ribon!  Cecile's cards are just gorgeous!  She has the most intriguing die cuts and I always love to see how she uses them!


I started out not knowing what I would do with this sketch!  I had something in mind and tried several times to make it work but had to start over.  I went through my dies and found some dual stitched triangles that I figured would work perfectly.  I threw in some circle garlands and I was off to the races!

Supplies: 
Cardstock: Whisper White, Lemon Lime Twist, Midnight Muse
Stamps: Essential Sentiments (MFT)
Ink: Midnight Muse
Other: Circle Garland Die (Reverse Confetti), Dual Stitched Triangle Dies (Lil Inkers), Subtle Texture Embossing Folder, 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 for you!

We can't wait to see what you come up with this week!

Have a fabulous day!

Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #374


Hello!
Happy Wednesday!  Hope you're having a great week so far! We're having some crazy weather here. Last Tuesday the schools were closed because of a crazy amount of snow.  It was also super cold (like -30C cold)  Then on Monday it was 11 degrees(C) and all of our snow melted!  Now we're supposed to get an insane amount of freezing rain.  I am praying the rain doesn't come because that much freezing rain is never a good thing!!

We have a new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  I have the honour of being this week's hostess!  I decided to tackle my extreme dislike of circles and jump into the circle world with both feet.

I decided to go for a white on white card!  I embossed some white cardstock with the subtle textured embossing folder and I used the glimmer white cardstock for others.  I threw on some white sequins as well just to make things fun!

Supplies:
Cardstock: Whisper White, White Glimmer
Stamps: Sentiment Essentials (Reverse Confetti)
Ink: Memento Black
Other: Subtle Texture Embossing Folder, Circle Punches, Sequins

Thanks 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 for your inspiration!

I can't wait to see what you come up with this week!

Have a fabulous day!
