Freshly Made Sketches 151

It’s so nice when Sunday rolls around and you realize that tomorrow is not a work Monday! Wee! I had a lovely day yesterday, I took the advice of a friend and sat outside with my coffee and laptop and relaxed and enjoyed the outdoors in the morning. Around 12:30 Sandy stopped by and we had some lunch. She brought a yummy Italian hero with her from a deli near her house. After lunch we headed to the Animal Shelter in Babylon to see if they had any news about her cat Oreo. He went missing at the beginning of August, but we still hope that he will turn up. The lady at the shelter told us that her cat was gone for a year! She said that she thinks that he was on vacation in the Hamptons! LOL! I hope that Oreo does come back. After the shelter we stopped at a scrapbook store and had nice chat with the lady that worked there. She asked if I we might be interested in teaching card classes, now that would be fun! I’ll keep you posted as to what becomes of that. I ran to Michaels when I got home and picked up some supplies, I want to start working on multimedia projects, I’ll keep you posted on them too! For dinner, I met my friend Maureen at Friday’s and then we ran to Walmart. Not an overly exciting day but I enjoyed it!

The post that I have for you today is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. This week’s sketch is provided by their Guest Designer Kim…

Freshly Made Sketches #151

I sort of took a little creative license with the sketch, I have wanted to use a new stamp set that I got and this seemed to work for it! My card begins with a base of Daffodil Delight Card Stock. The background is a piece of Sahara Sand that I embossed with my favorite, the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I sponged on some Soft Suede to make the grain stand out. All of the images are from the Yee Haw! Photopolymer Stamp Set, and yes they are all cut out with my Paper Snips, including the barb wire! I stamped them all in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them in with my Smoky Slate, Crumb Cake and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers. The barb wire is stamped on Smoky Slate. The lasso with the greeting are adhered to the card with SNAIL and all of the other elements are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I really like the Yee Haw! Stamp Set, so many fun western images and I think it goes perfect with the Woodgrain EF! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful Sunday! 🙂
