Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #127

I trust you're having a great week!  The kids and I are on our March break and spending a fabulous week with my mom and dad (Papa and Grannie) in Pembroke!  The boys are in heaven and have been having so much fun!  They sure do love being here!  I think I've put on 5 lbs (at least) since I arrived!  Why oh why does everything taste so much better here?!

Today brings us a fabulous new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!  This week's sketch is courtesy of the amazing Jennifer Timko!  I really do love Jen's sketch and how versatile it is!  I decided I needed to turn it on it's side though!  Not sure why but I think I may have just put it together wrong!!!!

I believe that my red banner is on crooked...sigh....happens more often than it should!  I threw the sequins on because they had just arrived in my order before we left to come to my mom's house and I couldn't resist throwing them in the luggage and bringing them along!  They are quite fun!

I originally had the banner plain (not embossed) but it looked a little too boring so I embossed it using the chevron embossing folder!  I added a Bitty Button and some punched some Fresh Prints DSP Stack to put behind it!  I am loving that Fresh Prints DSP Stack!!!

Cardstock: Costal Cabana, Real Red, Whisper White
DSP: Fresh Prints DSP Stack
Stamps: Just Sayin'
Ink: Basic Black
Other: Bitty Button, Bitty Button Punch, Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine, Sequins, Dimensionals, Chevron Embossing Folder, Word Bubbles Framelits, Banners Framelits

A few pictures of our fun at Grannie and Papa's!  My parents neighbours have let us use their rink while they're away!  The boys have LOVED it!  The bottom picture is from the Canadian Air Force Museum!  The boys were so excited to sit in those chairs!  They both want to be Air Force Pilots one day!

Thanks for stopping by!
Hope you have a fabulous week!

  1. Hey there! That pop of red on your card is fabulous! Looks like your guys are definitely having a great time!

  2. I love these colors and the fun little scattered sequins! Looks like the boys are having loads of fun!

  3. Love, love, love your color combo, Jen! And I think this sketch looks just as good on its side. Fantastic card! Pssst I wouldn't have even noticed your crooked banner if you hadn't pointed it out LOL.

  4. Great card, Jen! Love the chevron print and chevron embossing, and how you used the word bubble on top as part of the sketch! Great color combo, too! Love the picture of the boys enjoying the ice rink... brrrrrr.

  5. Super job combining the chevron pp with the embossing! Love your take on the sketch! :)

  6. Fabulous colours Jen! I love how you always combine colours - you make them look effortless!

    Your card is beautiful,as always! I love the color combo,the embossing and sequins!!
    Have a great weekend! :)

  8. You always capture me with the pictures of the boys! I know I should talk about cards but I'm seriously in love with the love of aviation in your family. :-) Ok…now I think this card is so cute! As for the banner being crooked…chevrons mess with my eyes and they always look off to me so I think it is straight. My story and I'm sticking to it!! Hope the time with family was great!
