Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #294

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're all having a great week!  We are still waiting for school to be finished.  Nothing like dragging it out until the bitter end.  The kids have checked out mentally and I'm pretty much done with making lunches and washing containers!!!  Only 3 more days!!!!  Yay!!!  Next week is the camp at our church and we are expecting about 1000 kids!  Should be a wild time!  I will have a great group of kids who will be introduced to the world of card making!  Can't wait!

We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches courtesy of one of our Texan designers Amy O'Neill!  Amy amazes me with her ability to match colours and patterns and always has the perfect accents.  She can also wind thread into the most perfect looking loops!

Amy's sketch stumped me at first but then I realized I wanted to turn it into a Father's Day card.  Yes, I made this card weeks' ago.  I didn't miss Father's Day - don't worry!  My dad got this card before the actual day!!!  I really love this stamp set from Reverse Confetti.  It worked perfectly to say exactly what I wanted.  I don't really have any Father's Day stamps and sometimes I find them pretty cheesy and this was what I wanted!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Night of Navy, Silver
DSP: A Little Foxy (retired SU)
Stamps: So Very Special (Reverse Confetti)
Ink: Smoky Slate, Night of Navy
Other: Bitty Banners Dies, Dimensionals

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!

We can't wait to see what you create this week!

Have a great day!


  1. This is a perfect sentiment for Father's day! I always struggle finding the right one, too. I can't believe y'all are still in school! I'll bet those boys are ready to be out. Have fun at your camp with all those little ones! You are amazing!

  2. Very classy for Father's Day! Loving the stripes! Have fun at camp!

  3. You have such a wonderful knack of using patterned paper to create the most elegant and striking cards, Jen, and this one is no exception!

  4. I hope your camp is super successful!! Love this fun card and the print is the perfect background for this great sentiment!

  5. I love how the striped background really shows off the big sentiment panel. That's a fantastic father's day card!

  6. I love your use of the paper as an extra frame for the sentiment!! A fabulous, masculine combination of elements.
