Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #329

Happy Wednesday!  Can you believe we're already halfway through March?!  Where is the time going?!  We had a great March break last week.  We were at my mom's house and she was helping me cut projects for camp.  I have about 19 projects to get ready for 50 kids.  We got 14 projects ready to go!  I so appreciate her help and really couldn't do this without her!  I am so excited that there are only a few more to go!

We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is the amazing Kim Singdahlsen.  Kim's cards are so beautiful and I absolutely love her collection of stamps and dies.  I think Colorado would be a great place to visit!!!!

I was a little concerned when I saw that giant circle on Kim's sketch but then I decided that I would try and make a masculine card with it because I have zero masculine birthday cards.  I have seen so many cards lately using this log paper and figured that would work perfectly.  It reminds me of my dad's wood piles actually!  So neat and perfect!

The card was a little dull and boring with just a plain white background so I ran it through the Big shot using the woodgrain embossing folder.

Cardstock: Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso
DSP: I have no idea what it's called...I can't find the name...
Stamps: Four You
Ink: Early Espresso
Other: MFT Fishtail Stax, Stitched Circle Dies (Lil Inkers), Woodgrain Embossing Folder, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the amazing cards the Clean Team has created.  They are totally amazing!  Those ladies do well with giant circles!!!

Have a fabulous day!
