Freshly Made Sketches 224

Hi there and a happy Saturday to you all! I had a busy day yesterday! I went to see about some potential work in the morning and then stopped by Heather’s after I ran home quick to say hello to Daniel. We had Subway for lunch and I messed around with my new iPhone. Siri wasn’t working and I was trying to avoid erasing the phone and starting over, it took about six hours the day before to put all of my stuff back on it! I was hoping that Apple might have a better solution so I made a Genius Bar appointment for 4:20 and went over to the Walt Whitman Store. They didn’t have any other suggestions so I erased the iPhone and set it up as a new one and that fixed the issue. The rest of the evening was spent adding things back that I use all the time and getting it set up again. Fun! LOL! This morning I’m taking a ride with Brian to go and take one of our friend’s daughters to her swim meet. The rest of the day will hopefully be spent crafting!

Today I have a super simple card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches

Freshly Made Sketches 224

The card base for this card is Ivory 110lb Card Stock. I cut a piece of paper from Blue Fern Studios called Sanctuary to 4″ x 5″ and heat embossed a greeting from the Simon Says Stamp Hand Lettered Winter Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set in Early Espresso Stampin’ Emboss Powder. A strip of Early Espresso is cut and the ends angled to be placed under the panel that is adhered with Fun Foam and SNAIL. All that was left to do is add a few Pretty Pink Posh Sand, Espresso and Aquamarine Sequins to the panel and the card is finished! See, I told you… super simple! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thanks for taking some time to stop by today! Have a super simple Saturday! 🙂
