Freshly Made Sketches 137 & Bonus!

I was hoping that Friday would be a nice easy day but alas that was not meant to be. They are building out he warehouse at work and my department got to move boxes around all day. I haven’t been to the gym in a while but I definitely feel like I went yesterday! It was overcast all day and rained last night. I did go to IHOP with Anthony and Bill for dinner. I haven’t had IHOP in ages. I was good and got the low calories pancake and eggs. I do love  a little breakfast for dinner! I came home and watched a movie and then just relaxed. It was a good way to end a busy day. What do all of you have planned for this long weekend? I’m playing it by ear. 🙂

I have my Freshly Made Sketches sketches card for this week’s challenge for you today. There is also a bonus card at the end of the post! This week’s sketch is given to us by Jen M….

Freshly Made Sketches #137

A very simple sketch so I stayed true to it with my card. The base is Whisper White Card Stock and the background is a piece of Hello Honey that I embossed with the Decorative Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Across the lower part of the card is a piece of Moonlight Designer Series Paper. I love how nicely the embossing folder and the paper go together. My greeting is from the Everyday Occasions Card Making Kit and is stamped in Lost Lagoon. I used the Project Life Cards and Labels Framelits to cut it out. It’s backed with some Basic Gray and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Two butterflies that I punched out from Lost Lagoon with the Bitty Butterfly Punch are adhered to the right of the greeting. Simple card with some of my favorite new In-Colors and DSP. I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. Scroll down a little to see my extra card for you for today. Thank you so much for dropping by, have a great Saturday! 🙂
