Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #444

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great start to your week!  We've had a couple days of gorgeous weather where you could actually be outside and not feel like you were melting!  It's been lovely!  My husband had a bad fall while mountain biking a few weeks ago and he's slowly healing.  He's back on the bike and we're doing some "short" rides around our neighbourhood to help strengthen his damaged muscles.  Several doctors have told him he's very, very fortunate that the damage wasn't more severe!  Thankfully, he was wearing a helmet and didn't hit his head!

We have a great sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is the amazing Jen Timko!  Jen's cards speak for themselves!  They are always amazing!  Her colouring is awe inspiring!  Head over to her blog to check them out!

Of course this card has a peony.  Did you expect anything different?  Okay, it could have been a sunflower or a magnolia!  I just can't help it!  I love them!  Though my box of new goodies from the upcoming Holiday Catalogue arrived and I can't wait to play with that!

I also realize that my sentiment and rectangle are on the wrong side of the card.  Apparently when I copied the sketch down I didn't do it properly!  Sometimes I wonder how I can walk and breathe at the same time!!  

I absolutely love the Peony Garden DSP.  I actually just ordered another pack because I've gone through so much!  Maybe that's not something to be proud of!  Ha!

Cardstock: Gray Granite, Whisper White, Gumball Green, Granny Apple Green, 
DSP: Peony Garden
Stamps: Itty Bitty Birthdays
Ink: Basic Black
Other: Peony Dies, Gray Granite Ribbon, Dainty Diamonds Embossing Folder, Sweetly Stitched Dies, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'l head on over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the gorgeous cards the Design Team whipped up for your inspiration!

Have an amazing day!
