Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #419


Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great week!  Here we are coasting into the end of the week already!  At least I'm looking at it that way!  We're expecting some warmer weather the rest of the week which will be good to help melt the glare ice on my front step.  I may have slipped on it today and went sailing down and onto my driveway.  Miraculously I remained upright the entire time!  Needless to say we need the ice to melt!!!

We have a great new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is the lovely Lee Ann Barrett!  Lee Ann's cards are always beautifully coloured!  I'm always amazed by her stunning creations!  You should head over to her blog and check them out!
I can't stop playing with my new poppy stamps and dies!  I absolutely love them and can't wait to use them again.  You will probably see them ALL the time now.  But I'm not really sorry!!  The Peaceful Poppies DSP might also be something I just LOVE!!!  I can't even get over how gorgeous it is!  Put them together and I'm in love!!

Cardstock: Basic Black, Poppy Parade, Whisper White
DSP: Peaceful Poppies
Stamps: Honey Bee, Painted Poppies
Ink: Basic Black
Other: Peaceful Poppies Sequins, Stampin Blends,

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.  You will be glad you did!

Have an amazing day!



  1. Oh that papers is just gorgeous! I love the contrast with the black, and your poppy is beautiful.

  2. What a beautiful piece of dsp to showcase with this sketch! Your poppy is gorgeous, and I love it contrasted with the black card base.

  3. This is gorgeous!! I love the pattern paper with the poppy. The black cardstock makes that red POP!

  4. What a gorgeous riot of poppies Jen! The black card base shows them off beautifully. I think the poppies may be like a rain dance for you - willing the temperatures to rise and that ice to melt! Vicky x

  5. I hope you didn't hurt yourself on your slippery ride! And I love these poppies too. I'm pretty sure the dies are going to make my way into my shopping cart soon!

  6. I love this extraordinary card. The flowers are amazing!

  7. Absolutely stunning, Jen! Your red and black card is so dramatic; what a beauty!
