Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #432

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're all still surviving your self isolation and quarantines!  We are getting into a school routine (sort of) and so that helps to fill the days.  The weather has been a little cool and it snowed today so there isn't much interest in being outside.  I guess it is April in Canada and we have to expect some crazy weather!

We have a great sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches from the super talented Jennifer Timko!  Jen is a colouring and flower creating whiz and her cards are always breathtaking!  Head over to her blog to check them out!

So I made the card below first.  I wanted to make a vertical card but the sentiment wouldn't fit so I had to flip the sketch on it's side.  I sure do love coffee cards even though I don't like coffee!  For me it should say "Life Happens, but Tea Helps!"  I then decided to make a second card using one of my favourite dies - the sun 'n clouds from Reverse Confetti!  I wanted a card that was bright and cheery!

Supplies (Sun n Clouds Card):
Cardstock: Whisper White, Daffodil Delight
DSP: Gingham 6X6 Stack
Stamps: Well Hello (MFT)
Ink: Black Stazon
Other: Cloud Embossing Folder, Sun 'n Clouds Confetti Cuts (Reverse Confetti), Dimensionals

Supplies (Coffee card):
Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black
DSP: Brights 6X6 Stack
Stamps: Cup of Love (MFT)
Ink: Black Stazon
Other: Mini Cup of Life Dienamics (MFT), Black Jewels, 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 created for your inspiration.

Have an amazing day!



  1. I love the cloud embossing folder behind your dies! Super cute card for the sketch, Jen!

  2. Sunny days yes that’s what we all wanted. Beautiful card 👍🥰

  3. Both of these cards are great but I do love the first one for its whimsical feel.

  4. Cute cards, Jen! Your sun card is sooo bright and cheery! I love it! The bit of texture in the sky is perfect and oh, how I love the gingham! Let's hope that is the last of your snow and you have sunny days on the horizon!

  5. Well thank you - you made me smile! We all need some happy sunshine! And I love your sweet coffee card too!

  6. Both of these cards are so pretty!! I LOVE that you made two cards for this challenge. The sunshine card makes me smile!!

  7. Both of these 2 cards are delightful, Jen! I can't say which one is my favorite, the two of them make me feel happy. They are definitely what we need at the moment.
