Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #342

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great start to your week!  We are in school wind down mode which is finally nice.  Caleb had what we hope is his last test today.  I know the teacher is just trying to keep them busy and out of trouble but I think we're all pretty much done!!!  Just a week and a half to go!

We have a got a great new sketch for you at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is the amazing Amy O'Neill!  She is our colour master and she can mix and match colours like no ones business.  She's also amazing with embellishments and getting thread to make these perfectly amazing circles!!!  It's a skill I don't possess!!  Head over to her blog and check it out!

I used this sketch to make a Father's Day card for my Dad.  I don't have a lot of masculine paper or stamps so I pulled out some of this Christmas paper from last year since it was about as masculine as I was getting.  I only have one Father's Day set and it's a retired one from SU.  I kinda thought the card needed something so I added in some arrows using the arrow punch!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black. Old Olive
DSP: Merry Little Christmas  (SU Retired)
Stamps: Best Dad Ever (SU Retired)
Ink: Basic Black
Other: Arrow Punch, 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 Design Team has created!  They are pretty spectacular!

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

Have a fabulous day!


  1. This paper is perfect for a masculine card! And the arrows are another great masculine touch. Hope your camp prep is coming along nicely. It sounds like Summer vacation is getting close for you.

  2. I love how you used DSP, it's definitely so masculine and clean all over.

  3. Wow this paper is fabulous for a guy! Love this crisp Father's day card!

  4. I love this "dad" card = great colors and crisp lines.

  5. Black and olive is such a striking combination and you've used them both perfectly here! Wonderful, graphic, masculine card!

  6. This is the perfect masculine print!! Love how you used the sketch. So clever!!

  7. This is wonderful. Those arrows are so fun. I keep kicking myself for not getting that paper - I kept talking myself out of it because all I really wanted it that big plaid.

  8. I think the arrows pointing to the sentiment is a great touch! And nice job re-purposing Christmas paper for a non-Christmas card. I love to do that too!
