Hey there! It’s supposed to get up to 46 degrees today! Maybe some of the snow will melt, that would be nice! I had a fun day with Daniel & Tristan yesterday, they really are such great kids! Daniel played on his hi-Pad and Tristan and I danced around the house. My Brother got home around 3:00 and I headed home. After dinner with my Parents Taylor and I watched a little TV and ran to Michaels quick. I have some laundry to do today and more errands to run. Anything to stay busy! 😀

I did manage to squeeze in a card this morning and it’s for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

A fun layered sketch! I have been on a bit of a purple kick lately, not sure why! The main panel of my card is stamped in Freshly Cut Grass, Fresh Lavender and Sugarplum using some of the floral images from the Concord & 9th Bits & Pieces Photopolymer Stamp Set. It’s backed with a piece of Black 110lb and added to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock that has a piece of Cyber Grape covering the front. I die cut the happy from a piece of Black 110lb with the die from the Concord & 9th Bits & Pieces Dies and adhered it to the stamped panel with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. Some sparkle always makes a card better so I added Clear Sparkle Pen to the happy and some Pretty Pink Posh Enchanted Garden and Pansy Purple Sequins. A fun card to send a little happy to someone that needs a pick me up! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Always good to have you stop by! Have an awesome Thursday! 🙂

    gorgeous card. Love your color choices

  2. Hi Justin:
    Love the happy colors in today’s card. Concord & 9th really does put out some gorgeous stamp sets. I love using the clear sparkle pens. That tiny bit of sparkle can make all the difference on a card. So glad you are still getting the opportunity to spend time with Tristan and Daniel. That must be lots of fun and you do take puppy with you right? Have a super weekend. We are do for an ice storm. See Linda B – also in Maine. Seems none of us can escape the ridiculously cold weather this winter.

  3. What a beautiful card! Those flowers are so pretty and make me dream of spring! We had some warm weather here yesterday that melted all of our snow but it’s all back now. Boo. I guess it’s winter and we have to expect snow and cold!!! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

  4. Love your card, Justin, with the beautiful flowers and the sparkly happy across it. Great take on the sketch. Sounds like a fun, but probably exhausting time, with the kids. They have so much energy and it takes a lot to keep them entertained. Having fun with them is special for all of you. All of our snow is gone, but it is COLD today. It felt like 5 when we got up around 8:30 this morning. Brrr! But like Jen said, it is winter. Enjoy your day!
