Happy Wednesday! I hope you're having a great start to your week. Yesterday our schools were officially cancelled for the rest of the year. I find it really hard to believe. I am totally okay with it, don't get me wrong. I just didn't realize before the March break that it would be the end of the year. I realize now that Caleb (my oldest) won't get his Grade 8 grad. I still remember my Grade 8 grad like it was yesterday. Thankfully (and probably because he's a boy) he doesn't really care! He didn't like the thoughts of having to dress up and walk across the stage! Oh boys!
We have a brand new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches! I have the joy of being the hostess this week! I wanted to keep the sketch very simple. I had in my mind that I would use it to make my son's 14th birthday card. His birthday is tomorrow. Obviously that didn't happen! Best of intentions!
You can also probably see that I put my sentiment in the wrong spot! Actually, had it in the right spot but the rhino and the sentiment didn't look right so I had to switch them. My dad's cousin needed some gender neutral baby cards. I knew white would be the ideal colour. I haven't done a shaker card in a LONG time so I figured it was about time to crack out the sequins!
I made a second card (actually this was the first card) using the retiring poppy DSP. I just love that paper. The Sweetly Stitched Dies might just be my favourite ever and I think they get used on pretty much every card right now!
Cardstock: Whisper White, Smokey Slate
Stamps: Zoo Babies, Sentiment Flags
Ink: Smokey Slate
Other: Sentiment Flags Dies, Stitched Frames, Softly Falling TIEF, Sequins (Taylored Expressions), Dimensionals
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out all the amazing cards the the Design Team has created! They are absolutely gorgeous! I can't wait to see what you come up with this week!
Have an amazing day!
