Freshly Made Sketches 113

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it’s that time again… FRIDAY is here!! This week at work seemed to be extra long but thankfully it will be over in a few short hours. My boss comes back from Israel on Monday, she did send us a video of her riding a camel the other day. That was quite entertaining! Tomorrow morning I’m off to Manhattan. Pray that the rain ends early so I can take a little walk and get some pictures! I also found out today that I’ll have to fend for myself on Thanksgiving as my parents will be heading down to my brother’s house. Looks like it will be a movie day for Justin!

Cindy Hall and the “Clean Team” over at Freshly Made Sketches gave us this sketch to work with this time…

Freshly Made Sketches #113

I decided for a change, I would go with a solid color for the background and base of my card. The inspiration for the colors in my card comes from the I Am Me Designer Series Paper. Funny enough, I liked the way the colors worked together on the card, but ended up not using the DSP! The base of the card is Basic Gray Card Stock. My two offset pieces are Real Red and across that is a piece of Calypso Coral. The light bulb images are from the Crazy, Mixed-Up Love Stamp Set, which is apparently my “Stamp Set of the week” LOL! My Stamp-a-ma-jig helped me line them up and they are backed with a piece of Pool Party, which is mounted to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the greeting from the same set in Versa-Mark and heat embossed it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. That’s it! Today’s card is simple but fun. As always, I hope you enjoyed my post for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches, thanks for stopping by today! Enjoy your Friday, I know I will! 🙂

  1. Justin, really cute card! I too am ordering this stamp set, today. Would you like to spend Thanksgiving with us, in California…….you will be most welcomed!

  2. Hi Justin – I’m a lot closer than Nancy’s LOL. Would love to have you come to Maine and enjoy Thanksgiving with us. We don’t eat until 5 or 6 so you would have plenty of time for the drive here. Let me think – probably about 7 hours. You don’t even have to call, there is always room and food for one more at my house!

    Fab card today. I am definitely a CAS stamper and that little bit of Pool Party really made this card pop. Great job.

    1. LOL Grace! Yes, Maine is a little more drivable! You are awesome!! If I didn’t have to work Friday I would seriously take you up on your offer! 🙂

      I’m glad you enjoyed the card and I hope that you have a lovely Thanksgiving! 🙂

  3. Why don’t you make the rounds on Thanksgiving weekend? You are more than welcome to come here for Saturday turkey! We will even drive you to Northern Kentucky University to see the 19 foot tree my husband arranged to deliver for their campus. It is awesome. Then we can go to downtown Cincinnati and see the tree and decorations in Fountain Square to compare to the elegance of Manhattan. Oh, how I miss it there! My cousin is one of the animal handlers at Radio City Music Hall! Don’t forget that we have a guest room right next to my stamping room, but we don’t have to do a thing except relax…the door is always open.
    Anyway, you and Brian are really opening my eyes to all that the Crazy, Mixed Up Love set can do. Hope to see you soon! I’ll pick you up from the airport. You are on my Grateful list. Nancy B

    1. Well Nancy, that would be the most amazing Thanksgiving ever! I love Christmas trees, I can’t wait for the one in Rockefeller Center! I have never been to Cincinnati, it’s on my list of places to visit. Your cousin sounds like they have a very interesting job! That is sweet of you and I may just take you up on your offer in the future!

      I really didn’t think I would use the set as much as I have. I waited to get it which is not like me! You are a wonderful person and I’m glad to have you “visit” me!


  4. Well Justin it looks like you will be very busy for your Thanksgiving weekend now! I guess your parents are going to see the new little baby!!!! We already have had our Thanskgiving here in Canada but you are most welcomed to come over to Ontario (LOL) Have a full Crop Day at my fav Scrapbook Store – all day did I say 10 to 8 – we would make room for you!

    Now I see the sketch and understand the “offset of the red pieces (LOL should always come here first before SC). Great card, great combo, very CAS.

    1. LOL! Yes, Louise, wouldn’t that be a great Thanksgiving, visiting everyone?! Yup, mum and dad are off to see their new grandson. A full day crop sounds neat, I can spend that much time at my craft desk on the weekend no problem! I have been to Toronto, I’ll have to add Ontario to my list!

      I loved they sketch had those offset pieces, it’s different and I love that! Have a great Friday! 🙂

    1. I wish I was coming through Indiana at 12 on Thursday, it sounds like a ton of fun! I actually have a friend from Mishawaka, Indiana, do you know where that is? I don’t think anybody actually does. LOL! 🙂

  5. Wow, you have many open invitations for years to come. After you stop over in Cincinnati you could stop in Northwest Ohio for more yummy food. Only one problem this year, my husband is having surgery next week. Will have to give you a rain check. Now back to your card…liking the simplicity and cuteness. It’s always a pleasure to see other people’s idea’s on stamp sets that don’t ‘trip my trigger’. Yippee…the weekend is here! Enjoy!

    1. Yes, Lisa, I am one lucky guy to have such wonderful people who want to spend time with as I would love to spend time with them. I hope that your husband’s surgery goes well, you’ll have to let me know! Thanks, I’m so glad I was able to get you interested in something that didn’t tickle your fancy in the first place! Have a wonderful weekend! 🙂
