Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #473


Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're all having a great start to the week!  It's been a crazy week!  I've seen pictures of kids building snowmen in Texas (for their first time ever) to 12" of snow out in Washington!  We got a big dumping of snow Monday night and there's more supposedly coming on Thursday.  I guess being Canadians we're supposed to be used to it and love it, but...I don't really!  I do really prefer to walk in the winter though - except for the death trap sidewalks!  I love the fresh, cold air.  Nothing beats it!

On a less cold and snowy note, we have a brand new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week!  Our hostess this week is the incredible and hopefully not frozen Texan, Amy O'Neill!  Amy is so creative and her cards always amaze me!  Head over to her blog to check them out!

Okay, you might not believe this but this is the first version of this card!  Yup, I got it the first time around!  I was rather impressed with myself.  It came together quite quickly.  Things like that generally don't happen so we'll celebrate this one!

I love the Flower and Field paper and couldn't help but use it again this week! Pair with the Pierced Blooms of course.  Who doesn't love a sweet, fresh daisy in the winter to cheer you up?


Cardstock: Basic Black, Whisper White, So Saffron, Granny Apple Green

DSP: Flower and Field

Stamps: Peaceful Moments

Ink: Basic Black

Other: Pierced Blooms Dies, Stitched So Sweetly Dies, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and take some inspiration from the cards you see there.  The Design Team knocked it out of the park this week!

Have an amazing day!
