Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #305


Hello!
Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great start to your week!  We're having a warm week here which is nice.  Yesterday was such a beautiful day.  The kids just loving being outside in this weather!  I don't blame them!  Makes summer last just a little bit longer!

We have a great new sketch today at Freshly Made Sketches courtesy of the amazing Amy O'Neill!  Amy is one of our resident Texans and such a creative card maker.  She puts together things that I would never dream of and they ALWAYS look fabulous!  Head over to her blog and check out her creations!


I knew as soon as I saw this sketch that I wanted to use this sunflower paper!  Sunflowers are probably one of my favourite flowers.  They just look happy.  They make me happy.  They also remind me of fall and I do love fall!

Supplies:
Cardstock: Whisper White, Early Espresso, Garden Green,  Crushed Curry
DSP: Painted Autumn
Stamps: Sweet Celebrations (Lil Inkers)
Ink: Early Espresso
Other: Sweet Celebrations Dies (Lil Inkers), Celebrate Word Die (Lil Inkers), Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the amazing cards the Design Team has created for you!  You will not be disappointed!  We can't wait to see what you come up with this week!

Have a fabulous day!

Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #304


Hello Everyone!
Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're all having a great start to your week and you had a fabulous Labour Day!  We had a great week of vacation last week doing a road trip around Pennsylvania!  It sure was a fun time! The kids are back in school and both boys are happy with their teachers.  They each have repeat teachers so we know pretty much what to expect this year!  Yay!

We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Narelle Farrugia is our amazing hostess this week.  Narelle's cards always wow me.  Her fussy cutting and those beautiful layers and flowers.  They're so pretty!  Head over to her blog and check them out!
Unfortunately when I looked at this sketch I TOTALLY missed the giant "sentiment" on there.  I had every intention of putting my sentiment beside my little wise men but it didn't fit so I just figured throwing it underneath would be okay.  So not okay.  I'm hoping those girls don't kick me off the team!

I do love the wise men and thought they needed to be embossed in gold.  Then the tree needed to be embossed and the sentiment and the star!  Needless to say, there was a lot of embossing going on!  Let's also say that this card will not be mass produced!!!

Supplies:
Cardstock: Basic Black, Whisper White, Gold
Stamps: Wise Men From Afar
Ink: Versamark
Other: Circle Dies (Spellbinders), Gold Embossing Powder, 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 has come up with!  You will definitely be inspired!

Have a fabulous day!
