Freshly Made Sketches 262

It was a seriously windy day here yesterday, especially by the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store! Had to be gusts up to 50 MPH! I made a few cards and got some other things taken care of. My list sometimes seems to never get any shorter, but I’m sure that we all feel that way! When I got to my Parent’s house Daniel was still there! I had a quick dinner and then he and I played for a while! He has the best laugh and boundless energy! I wish he would share some of that energy with me! LOL! After my Parents left to take him home I came to my house and watched a little YouTube, Friday night fun! Today Renee has a guest at the store teaching some classes and I have my little buddy Daniel’s 3rd Birthday party! That will be loads of fun! šŸ˜€

The card that I made at the Store is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…


A super simple sketch indeed! My card begins with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I stamped the Hero Arts Hand Drawn Snowflakes Bold Prints Background stamp onto a piece of Kraft with some Hero Arts Soft Brown Ink and the panel is adhered to the card with E-Z Runner. Across the top half is a piece of American Crafts Gold Glitter Card that I adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My card and greeting are from the Hero Arts Kelly’s Warm & Cozy Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the card in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it in with Copics. My greeting is heat embossed onto a piece of Cosmic Grape with Hero Arts Gold Embossing powder. I cut them both out with Scissors and adhere them to the gold strip with 3D Foam Squares. A little scattering os Pretty Pink Posh Amethyst, Mossy Green, Raspberry and Gold Sequins Completes the card! I love that Hand Drawn Snowflakes Stamp and the simple car from the Warm & Cozy Set! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thanks you for taking some time out of your day to come by and see me! Have a stupendous Saturday! šŸ™‚

  1. Well, 3 years old already? WOW! Time goes by too quickly. Happy Birthday Daniel! 3, 4 & 5 are the absolute best, most fun, most adorable ages for Christmas EVER. You and your parents will have so much fun with Daniel this year. I bet Daniel will be so glad his Uncle Justin came to his birthday. Don’t forget to take some photos to share with us please.

    That snowflake background stamp is fabulous and is the perfect one to use with your little card with tree on it stamp. Of course no card is complete without a bit of glitter and sequins. Just love it. You have yourself a Super Saturday my friend. Love and hugs, XOO šŸ™‚
