Freshly Made Sketches 218

Happy Friday! Yesterday I got some things done around the house and crafted for a bit while I FaceTimed with Andrea. Taylor and Kiera stopped by for a visit and watched My Strange Addiction on YouTube, now that is an odd show! I had some dinner and then ran to BJ’s and Target with Heather . She dropped me back off at my house and I got in my car and headed over to her house for Thirsty Thursday! Brian, Stephanie and Adam came too! We ended up watching Lip Sync Battle with Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan. That is an awesome show! Today I plan to get some crafty things finished and then clean right after I see Star Wars with Brian in the morning!

Freshly Made Sketches is back for the new year with a new sketch for this week’s challenge…

Freshly Made Sketches 218

A very different sketch indeed! My card starts off with a base of Ivory 110lb Card Stock. I covered the front with a piece of Blushing Bride and my background is a piece of paper from the Pebbles Yours Truly 6×6 Paper Pad. Across the bottom is a piece of Ivory 110lb that I used the Simon Says Stamp On the Edge Love You Die on and adhered it to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. Across the top is some more Ivory 110lb, I used the Corner Chomper to round the corners, punched a hole in them with a 1/8″ Hole Punch, threaded some American Crafts Pink Hemp Twine though and adhered them to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. The heart and arrow are cut from more Blushing Bride with the Simon Says Stamp Scribble Heart and Arrow Dies. They are adhered to the card with a combination of Foam Tape and Multi-Matte Medium. I tied the twine in a bow and the card is done! Love that scribble Heart and Arrow and the Love You Edge die too! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thank you for your visit and have a fantastic Friday! 🙂

  2. AWE! What a sweet Valentine’s Day card. Soft, warm and you couldn’t get any more perfect for your special someone. Blushing Bride is definitely one of my favorite colors. Years ago someone told me that pink and red don’t go together. I asked her what planet she was from! LOL Anyway, Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays because it reminds us to tell the people we love that we love them. You hit it out of the ballpark with this card Justin! Luv ya! XO 🙂
