Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #309

Happy Wednesday! I can’t believe it’s Wednesday already!  I hope you’ve had a great start to your week. I’m still without a laptop and working off my iPad which is a little frustrating my old laptop is not fixable and we had to bite the bullet and get a new one. Technology.  Can’t live with it, can’t live without it!!

We have a great new sketch this week courtesy of Linda Callahan! Linda makes such beautiful cards and she has such a fabulous sense of humour.  I seriously think she should write a book!

I needed to make an anniversary card for my husband as we celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary last week.  I try and keep the cards themed like our wedding was, hence the leaves, the cherry cobbler and the gold!   I was pretty liberal with the sketch. I opted to pretend I didn’t see those evil circles and saw leaves instead! 

Cardstock: Whisper White, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry, Gold
DSP: Painted Leaves
Stamps: I can’t remember....
Ink: Early Espresso
Other: Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder, Large Number Framelits, 

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you’ll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the gorgeous cards that the Design Tean has created for your inspiration!  

Have a fabulous day!


  1. Oh my goodness! I'm melting down at the thought of not having a laptop for you! I couldn't go a day - how pathetic am I? Your card is just gorgeous Jen! I am loving the colours and the warmth they bring. Happy Anniversary to you both! xxx

  2. Happy Anniversary! I love the gold 15 on this, and I love how this is such a great masculine card. Oh, and good job overcoming your circle aversion. :)

  3. Congrats on your anniversary! What a gorgeous card. I love the leaves for an anniversary at this time of year and the paper to match the theme. The gold is so rich and elegant with it.

  4. Sorry about those circles! The leaves work perfectly! This card is the gold! Happy Anniversary!

  5. Happy Anniversary!! I LOVE the card that you created. Those leaves with the gold 15-oh so pretty!! Sorry about your lap top. I just had to get a new computer about 2 weeks ago. I feel for you!

  6. Love this anniversary card. That big ol' 15 says it all! Happy anniversary!

  7. What circles?!! Leaves are pretty much the way to go, as far as I'm concerned! Just wonderful and happy anniversary!!

  8. Happy Anniversary! Your card is gorgeous, Jen - love those leaves and the colours are fantastic!
