Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #497

Happy Wednesday!

I hope you're having a great week!  We are back in business here!  Our family has settled in our new home after our cross country move and the craft cave has been unpacked and set up!  It's been a crazy few weeks but we're slowly getting used to our new digs and getting in some cool mountain hikes.  

We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess is the amazing Jacquie Southas.  You need to head over to her blog to check out her gorgeous cards! 

I'm a little rusty and lacking creativity at the moment but I knew I needed some thank you cards so I forced myself to get out the paper and craft!  I opted for two different colour combinations because I couldn't decide which one I liked better!

Cardstock: Basic Black, Flirty Flamingo, Crushed Curry, Champagne Foil, Gold Foil
DSP: Pattern Party
Stamps: Peaceful Moments
Ink: Stazon Black
Other: Stitched So Sweetly Dies, Sunflower Dies, Gold and Black Thread, Black Rhinestones, Gold Rhinestones, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the gorgeous cards there!

Have an amazing day!




  1. Look at you! A cross country move and back to making beautiful cards! You are my hero! Normally I am not a pink gal but I am loving the pink one you made!

  2. These are both beautiful! As is your new home! Glad you are getting to spend some time outside in its beauty.

  3. I'm so glad you are settling in and have a creative space again, Jen! Both cards are gorgeous - it's amazing how different colors can change the feel of a design and I'm keep going back and forth on which I like better.

  4. I love both of the colors! I suspect it will take a while to settle in, especially with all that gorgeous outdoor space to explore.

  5. Both of these cards are gorgeous, Jen! I'm so glad to see your fabulous creations again and glad things are settling down for you.

  6. Oh this is just beautiful! I love your choice of colours for your card - so pretty!
