Freshly Made Sketches 212

Hi there and welcome to Saturday and the start of the weekend! I had a nice day yesterday! Got my haircut and then came home and did a little organizing and crafting. I had to run to Michaels and Target and then I went over to my parent’s to see little Daniel. I got him some new colored pencils because his other ones kept breaking and I was a little tired of sharpening them! After dinner I met up with Heather and took a ride with her out to see Patti and Tom and the kids. We had a nice visit and then I spent a little time at her house while she packed. I’m off to the city again this morning to see some friends and then stop by The Ink Pad to help Anna with a few things. Should be another great day!

Oh, Michael has been a busy boy this week! He has five blog posts for you to read! Click HERE To go to his blog and take a look at his projects and some goodies that I sent to him! 🙂

My card that I have for you today is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

Freshly Made Sketches 212

I loosely interpreted the sketch so I could use a new stamp and die set that I recently acquired! The card base is Neenah Solar White 100b Card Stock. My background is created with a piece of Solar White 80lb and some Simon Says Stamp Lake Shores Ink and the Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tool. I stamped the greeting from the Hero Arts Acts of Kindness Photopolymer Stamp Set. It’s part of Jennifer McGuire’s Share Handmade Kindness Campaign and 25% of the profits got to the Kindness Campaign to help end bullying. It’s adhered to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. My images are from the Hero Arts Color Layering Dimensional Bird. I stamped them in Simon Says Stamp Schoolhouse Red, Lake Shores, Scuba and High Dive and Hero Arts Cup ‘O Joe and Butter Bar and used the coordinating Frame Cuts to cut them out. The branch and the feet are adhered to the card with Multi-Matte Medium and the bird, wing and flower are adhered with Foam Tape. I love that bird and the way he looks on the background! I hope that you enjoyed today’s card for this weeks Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thank you for stopping by and have a super Saturday! 🙂

  1. Good Saturday Morning Justin:

    What an amazingly beautiful bird. The turquoise color makes me think of the Southwest and the Navajo tribes of northern Arizona that live there. I just love it and I thought your design fit the sketch, which does allow for interpretation, perfectly. I don’t see how this card could have been any more beautiful. Thanks for inspiring lovely thoughts this morning and I hope you have a fantastic day in Manhattan! Love and hugs to you my friend! XO

    1. Hi Grace!
      Thank you! I love that bird and the fact that it has all separate stamps to make him nice and colorful is too cool! I can see where you would get a southwest feel from him! I can see the sketch when I look at the card now! I’m so happy that I got to brighten you morning! I had a nice day and hope that you did too! Love you!! XOXO 🙂
