Freshly Made Sketches 236

Well, it turned out to be a nice morning here! I went to Scrap-A-Latte and met Sue for the yard sale at 8:45. We were there until around 11:00 chatting with people. Sue got some stuff, I was good and did not! I got to drive back home with the top down, that always makes me happy! When I got back home I had a little lunch and then FaceTimed with my cousins in England again! Love chatting with them and there were a bunch of them this time! After that I ran to BestBuy to pick up a new universal remote called Blumoo. It works with your iPhone and the Amazon Echo. I’ll let you know what I think of it after I have played around with it for a bit. Around 6:15 Brian stopped by to drop off a shelving unit and we chatted for a bit. Some dinner was had with the Parent’s and then it was back home to make a card and watch a little TV, for research purposes for the remote of course! LOL! This morning I’m off to Manhattan to meet up with the peeps from The Ink Pad to go to the Stationary Show at the Javit’s Center. I’m looking forward to seeing what it’s all about! After that I’m going to meet up with Kim, her sister Angie and niece Tayler who are in from Missouri. That’s going to be fun!

Today I have my card that I made for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches to share with you! Here is this week’s sketch…

Freshly Made Sketches 236

The card has a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I adhered a piece of paper from the Recollections Color Splash 6×6 Paper Pad in the upper right corner. Across the bottom is a piece of Gold Mirror Card. My greeting and butterfly are from the Altenew Painted Butterflies Photopolymer Stamp Set. I heat embossed the Thank You onto a piece of Black 110lb with some Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder and adhered the strip to the card with Foam Tape. My butterfly is stamped in Altenew Ocean Waves and Dusk Crisp Ink and Memento Tuxedo Black. I cut itΒ out with the Coordinating Dies and adhered it to the card with more Foam Tape. A generous dose of Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen is applied over some of the black on the wings and a few Pretty Pink Posh God Sequins are added for some extra sparkle! I love that butterfly and the Altenew Crisp Inks stamp so nicely! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thank you for your visit today! Have a super Sunday! πŸ™‚

  1. I love the background. Have fun at the stationery show. That’s exciting. Be sure to tell us about it.

  2. Enjoy the stationery show! I’ll be there tomorrow afternoon–and cannot wait!

  3. Im dragging today. 8 hours in the car is no fun. My son graduated yesterday from Western Illinois University, 3 down and one more to go, my last child will graduate in December. WOW! I feel old. Then my other son did a marathon and finished under 3 hours, he is now qualified for The Boston Marathon, fingeres crossed he gets in, Boston is my fav place and I want to go back there.

    Sorry, I’m rattling on…. I loved your orchid card from yesterday! Today’s card is GORGEOUS! I love the DP you chose, perfect for this card. I’m with you, I love the Altnew inks, crisp ink with beautiful colors and they blend so well together. This stamp set is gorgeous. I did some organizing in Friday, since it is too flippin cold still to plant the flowers that i bought, and I was horrified to see how many unused goodies that i have. Luckily I still love everything but I need to get creative. Take care

    1. I’m sorry to hear that Linda! I hate days like that! Sounds like you have a reason though! Your son and his marathons, he’s quite impressive! I too like Boston, I haven’t been in a while but will go back soon.
      Thank you! I love Altenew and yes, their inks are amazing! It’s cold here too. Organizing is a good thing, isn’t it great when you find “new” stuff and still like it!Hope you got some rest and that you have a great day! πŸ™‚

  4. This is really gorgeous, Justin. Love your choice of colors and that piece of DSP is perfect with this design. Great card! Thanks for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches.

  5. LOVE this!!! That golden base with the darker sky seems like he’s flying ahead of a sunrise – what a gorgeous look!! Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
