Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #363

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great week so far!  We had our first dusting of snow yesterday.  I wasn't too impressed.  You see, though I've lived in Canada my whole life and have spent every single winter surrounded by cold and snow, I truly believe in my heart of hearts that I really am Hawaiian and need to spend my winters where it's a consistent and lovely temperature with relatively low humidity!!!!  My family totally disagrees with me though! Oh well....

We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is one of our amazing leaders Jen Timko!  Jen makes gorgeous cards.  She is a colouring guru and an ink master!!  Please had over to her blog to check out her creations!

I kinda knew what I wanted to make when I started creating this card.  It just took me a really long time to get there.  I don't know why.  I kept getting distracted and trying different colours and different papers and finally this is what I settled on!  Very simple.  Very, very simple.

Cardstock: Kraft
Patterned Paper: Festive Farmhouse
Stamps: Lovely as a Tree,  Star of Night
Ink: Versamark
Other: White Embossing Powder, White Bakers Twine, Glass dots, 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 girls have created as your inspiration!

Have a fabulous day!

  7. I love this card! The kraft background with the plaid is fabulous together. And the white embossed tree is amazing. And I totally agree with you about the snow and cold. I was born and live in the wrong place, for sure!
