Freshly Made Sketches 163

I’m a little late this morning, I got home late last night and woke up later than I wanted to this morning. It was one of those the bed is too warm and cozy to get out of it mornings! I had a good Friday but poor little Daniel did not. He fell and hit his head on the corner of a marble table and had to go to the hospital. They saw a plastic surgeon and everything should be ok but I felt so bad for the little guy. I was told that it looks much worse than it was, It looks pretty bad to me…

Daniel Cut

I probably won’t see him until next week but I’ll let you know how he’s doing. I was on my own for dinner last night so Heather, Kim, Taylor and I took a ride up to the Broadway mall. The girls wanted to do a little shopping and I needed some new threads too. I ended up getting two pairs of pants and two sweaters along with a bottle of my favorite cologne. Heather and I went and got some Chinese food and watched a little TV and ended up chatting until late. Not a bad way to spend a Friday night! Today I have a list of things that I would like to get accomplished, we’ll see how far I get with that! LOL!

My card for today was inspired by a friends that I pinned yesterday and it’s for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

Freshly Made Sketches 163

I love the Joy to the World sentiment especially when used with a globe! LOL! My card starts off with a base of Garden Green Card Stock. A strip of Soft Sky goes down the left side and on top of that is a piece of paper from the Maritimeย Designer Series Paper Pack with the right corners rounded with the Project Life Corner Rounder. The globe is from the Open Sea Stamp Set and is stamped in Garden Green on Soft Sky and cut out with the Circles Collection Framelits. I adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My greeting is from the “Vintage” Joy to the World Stamp Set and is heat embossed on Vellum with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I used a little 2-Way Glue behind the words to adhere it to the card. Not an overly complicated card but I like the colors and the unusual mix of elements. I hope that you enjoy my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. You can take a look at the inspiration card HERE! Thank you so much for coming by today. I hope that you all have a wonderful Saturday! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Oh poor little Daniel! Ouch. Hope he is OK and it does not leave too big of a mark. Hugs and kisses for him.
    Love your card, especially that embossed vellum. It is something I don’t do enough….. That and posting more regularly, like you dear friend. Have a super Saturday. Keep us posted on little Daniel.

    1. Louise, Daniel looks a lot better today than he did yesterday. Thank you, I love embossing on vellum! And the posting is just part of my daily routine at this point. LOL! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Oh, the poor little guy. Kids do recover fast, thank goodness. I love your beautiful card, so creative with the images and dsp. I have lots of vintage stamps!

    1. Thanks, Wendie! Yes, kids are very resilient, thankfully. Glad you liked the card. Yes, sometimes vintage stamps are the best! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Poor Baby! My 2 year old has a matching gash right now. She hit the corner of the coffee table. Lucky for us my sister works at a Children’s Urgent Care and was able to come over and look at it and all it needed was to be glued. I hope Daniel is doing okay. It’s always scary when something like that happens. You card is beautiful, as always! I love the use of the vellum! Happy Saturday!

    1. Sorry to hear that your little one fell, too, Christina. They do that a lot when they’re young, though. Lucky that your sister is in the medical field, very handy! Happy you enjoyed the card, and a happy Saturday to you too! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. lovely card, unusual take on a Christmas card but I like it! Glad little Daniel is ok, the first of a few bumps in his lifetime, boys play hard sometimes, I know cuz I have three!

    1. Thanks Lynne! The card is a little eclectic, but that’s fun every once in a while. And yes, boys are definitely much rougher than girls are, having three you would know that. LOL! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. I need to start using my circle framelits more. By the time of think of them I’ve already cut the image with one of my older, or as you say “vintage” hand punches. LOL You couldn’t possibly have found a word stamp to match that card that could be more fit for the image. Have a great time in the City tomorrow. Lots of photos please.

    Poor Daniel. Well, I think a few stitches are better than his first cast will be when he decides to jump out of a tree or something…………..see why I only had girls? LOL My heart couldn’t take the emergency room visits. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Funnily enough, Grace, I always reach for the framelits before the punches. The only other one that would’ve worked was “You mean the world to me”, and that was taken yesterday as you know. LOL! I hope to get to take some pictures for you, Grace! I would agree with you about the only having girls thing, but he really is too cute. We’ll try and keep him out of the trees. LOL! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thanks very much, Linda! You know how I like non-traditional. I’m sure he’ll be just fine. Not his best picture, though, sorry. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Hi Justin,
    Poor little Daniel I hope he is feeling better soon. Sounds like a fun day shopping though you need to give us a photo fashion shoot now! LOL!
    I really love this card with the map and Joy To The World sentiment, fab again!
    Take care & enjoy rest of your weekend,
    Michelle xo

    1. Hi Michelle! Little kids are resilient and I’m sure Daniel will be fine. No photo shoots will be happening, but yes it was a fun day shopping. LOL! Glad you enjoyed the card. Thank you, and enjoy your weekend, too! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Poor little Daniel — it does look painful, but children are very resilient. Kind of makes me wonder how we lose that resiliency as we grow older… but I digress. Praying for his speedy recovery!
    Great card Justin! And I love that you always use vintage stamps — I have lots of those, can’t bear to part with them. You must have quite the collection.
    Have a great weekend!

    1. Thank you Jeanie! I do have a lot of vintage stamps and I feel that they need to be dusted off every once in a while. I think we lose the resiliency as we get older because fear sets in. When we’re little, we don’t have any fear. LOL! I’ll keep you updated on his progress. You have a great weekend too! ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Great card Justin! Love how you’ve put the world with the sentiment! I would have never thought of that one! Love the embossed sentiment on the vellum!
    Hope little Daniel feels better soon. Kids do heal quickly! My son Jacob has had many a gash! Thank goodness they’re tough! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

    1. Thanks so much, Jen! So glad you enjoyed the card. Yes, little kids are very resilient and I’m sure Daniel will be just fine. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Poor little tiger! Looks like Daniel is taking it in stride and hope he heals up soon. I too love Joy to the World paired with a globe, lovely card.

    1. Daniel is a tough little guy Dana, I’m sure he’ll be fine! Thanks! Happy you enjoyed the card! ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Now, that looks like a masculine Christmas card – good job!! My Sunday is almost over and yours hasn’t even started -_- We had lunch with great friends, feeling full and sleepy. Enjoy your Sunday! Kelly xx

    1. Thank you Kelly! You are in the future!! LOL! I’m glad that you had a nice day, I did too! ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Oh my goodness, that is a huge boo-boo ๐Ÿ™ When my son was little like Daniel he was knocked into a tiled fireplace hearth, 5 stitches later – about the same place as Daniel too, whew….now he is 11 and you can barely see it ๐Ÿ™‚

    Your card is phenomenal! I love your quirky take on the Christmas card and I think I’ll make a few of these. Thanks for the great idea, it rocks!

    1. I’m hoping that the plastic surgeon will make sure that Daniel’s gash disappears too! They always fall, especially the boys! So glad that you enjoyed the card Jill! Eclectic can be fun! ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Justin, love this card. Love the use of all the elements and the colors. A great Christmas card!!!
