Freshly Made Sketches 138

Hello Thursday! It’s always nice to see you! Work was a little crazy yesterday. We have a fashion show this Friday night and someone was supposed to do the program but I was the lucky one that ended up with that task! I love when things get dumped don’t you?! I did have a nice evening when I got home. I made a few cards. My boss asked me to make a birthday card for her soon to be 7 year old niece. I said sure. She said she loves Hello Kitty… hmm… who doesn’t! LOL! I don’t know if I have ever mentioned the fact that I don’t really care much for punch art. I don’t think that I have ever made a punch art card, well, I have now. I will post it in the near future and you can let me know what you think about it!

The other card that I made last night was my one for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge from Jen T…

Freshly Made Sketches #138

I love the sketch! I thought of a few different options and settled on this. The card base is Crumb Cake Card Stock and the background is a piece of Mossy Meadow that I embossed with the Arrows Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. My stamped images are from the Perfect Blend Stamp Set. I stamped the coffee cup in Memento Tuxedo Black on Whisper White and cut it out with my Paper Snips. I stamped it again in Jet Black Staz-On on a piece of adhesive cork sheet and cut that out too. The backing is a piece of Vellum Card Stock, I rounded the corners with the Project Life Corner Rounder. A piece of the Natural 5/8″ Chevron Ribbon is stapled to the top and I adhered it to the base with Stampin’ Dimensionals, hiding them behind the cup. A simple but masculine card that would work well for a birthday or even a just because card. We don’t send enough of those and I think we should make an effort to send more! So that’s my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge from Jen T. Did you enjoy the card? Let me know by leaving a comment! I love hearing your descriptions and about your day too! Thank you very much for your visit and I’ll see you tomorrow! Have a super Thursday! 🙂
