Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #410

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great week so far!  We are having an interesting week for sure!  Caleb started getting sick last Monday but then didn't really get better.  We took him to the walk in clinic on Saturday and they said it was viral and to wait it out.  By Monday I knew there was something a little more serious going on.  Sure enough, Caleb has pneumonia.  We're just over 24 hours into the antibiotics and slowly starting to see some improvements.  Hopefully over the next day or so we start to see some great changes!

We have a great sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches courtesy of the amazing and super punny Linda Callahan!  Linda creates darling cards and always posts super sweet pictures of her grandchildren!  Head over to her blog to check them out!

So these squares may as well have been circles.  I struggled with the squares.  A lot.  This isn't the first card.  The first card I made is still on my craft room desk in the heap of shame!  I don't now why I struggled but I did.  I'm still not over thrilled with the final product.  I just couldn't get the square in the background to look right.  Trust me when I say that I tried a whole host of different colours!

Cardstock: Balmy Blue, Night of Navy, Whisper White
DSP: Gingham DSP Stack
Ink: Stazon Black
Other: Bitty Flower Punch, Scalloped Square Die, Stitched Squares (Lil Inkers), Stitched Hearts Banner, Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the gorgeous cards the Design Team has created to inspire you!

We can't wait to see what you come up with!

Have an amazing day!
