Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #485

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you have been having a great start to your week so far!  My husband just arrived at our new home in Alberta.  We don't actually take possession of it until Thursday but he stopped by to get a picture just to show us he made it safely.  He had a 3000+ km drive (took him well over 30 hours) to get there.  He was by himself though he had a coworker driving behind him for most of it.  I was so relieved when he got there safe and sound.  Now for the excitement of a new house!  

We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is the incredible Judy Rozema!  Judy's cards are always so beautiful.  Head over to her blog to check them out!

I needed some sympathy cards.  I have been asked by a friend to make a bunch up for her.  Then I realized that I needed one for myself as well.  I saw the Peony Garden DSP sitting there and knew it would be perfect.  This paper is so beautiful and I'm sad to use it up BUT I've been putting more effort into actually using my paper instead of hoarding it!!!  We'll see how long that lasts!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Gray Granite, Granny Apple Green, Cucumber Crush, Black, Petal Pink
DSP: Peony Garden
Stamps: Prized Peony
Ink: Basic Black
Other: Peony Dies, Stitched So Sweetly Dies, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches and join in our challenge this week.  The Design Team has created some amazing cards that will definitely inspire you.  

Have an amazing day!
