Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #309



Hello!
Happy Wednesday! I can’t believe it’s Wednesday already!  I hope you’ve had a great start to your week. I’m still without a laptop and working off my iPad which is a little frustrating my old laptop is not fixable and we had to bite the bullet and get a new one. Technology.  Can’t live with it, can’t live without it!!

We have a great new sketch this week courtesy of Linda Callahan! Linda makes such beautiful cards and she has such a fabulous sense of humour.  I seriously think she should write a book!

I needed to make an anniversary card for my husband as we celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary last week.  I try and keep the cards themed like our wedding was, hence the leaves, the cherry cobbler and the gold!   I was pretty liberal with the sketch. I opted to pretend I didn’t see those evil circles and saw leaves instead! 

Supplies:
Cardstock: Whisper White, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry, Gold
DSP: Painted Leaves
Stamps: I can’t remember....
Ink: Early Espresso
Other: Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder, Large Number Framelits, 

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you’ll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the gorgeous cards that the Design Tean has created for your inspiration!  

Have a fabulous day!

Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #308


Hello!  
Happy Wednesday!  I hope you’re having a great week!  I hope my fellow Canadian friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  We had a lovely weekend and our turkey was so yummy!  Unfortunately my laptop died or has developed some health issues and won’t turn on!  Needless to say, doing this post from my iPad is proving to be a little more frustrating than I had anticipated!

We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is the amazing Rita Wright!  Rita is a colouring queen!  Her marker manipulating abilities far exceed anything I’ll ever be capable of!!!

I love sunflowers and wanted to this amazing DSP on a card!  I find that sunflowers always make me smile.  I added some burlap ribbon and a tiny little sunflower. There are some gold sequins on there too!  

Supplies:
Cardstock: Early Espresso, Garden Green, Whisper White, Crushed Curry
DSP:Painted Leaves
Stamps: So Very Special
Ink: Early Espresso
Other: Gold Sequins, burlap ribbon, bitty flower punch, 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 created for your inspiration!  You won’t be disappointed!  

Have a fabulous day!

Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #307 - Take Two!



Happy Wednesday!
I hope you're having a great start to your week!  The weeks seem to be flying by!  I can't believe that it's October already and this weekend we'll be celebrating Thanksgiving here in Canada!  Turkey and gravy!!!  Yummy.  Oh, I guess that means I have to make that.  Hmmm...I wonder how everyone would feel about hamburgers instead!!!!

So you may have noticed that this is the same Freshly Made Sketches card that I made last week.  We had a little, itty, bitty issue with our linky tool and all of the submissions we had received vanished into cyberspace somewhere.  We decided that we would extend our challenge one additional week with hopes that everyone who had entered would re-enter their gorgeous cards!!!

Our sketch was courtesy of my dear friend Jen Timko!  Jen is such an amazing card maker and comes up with the most creative cards!  Did you see her x-ray card?  You need to go and check out her blog!



I wasn't quite sure what to with this sketch when I first saw it but then I realized I needed a wedding card for my friend Laura who is getting married this coming Saturday!  (Well, Laura and Brad had a beautiful day and Laura was a gorgeous bride!)  I love the heart die from Lil Inkers and knew it would be the perfect substitute for an evil circle!!!  I threw on some flowers and voila!  I used the colours that Laura had told me she's using for her wedding!

Supplies:
Cardstock: Night of Navy, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, Smokey Slate
Stamps: Sweet Celebrations (Lil Inkers)
Ink: Pink Pirouette, Smokey Slate
Other: Sweet Celebrations Dies, Celebrate Word Die, Sequins, Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder, 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 your inspiration!

Have a fabulous day!!!
