Hello! Usually I’m super happy about it being Friday but today I have to work from 8:30am until 11:30pm. Not my favorite Friday on record for sure! I will be a happy camper when this day is done, and a tired one probably! What do you all have going on for the weekend? I’m going to Manhattan tomorrow to see my friend Kim. It was her birthday yesterday! Happy Birthday Kim… my present to you… your favorite early Saturday morning wake up! LOL!
Now on to the task at hand. My post today is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches. This week Rita has provided us with this simple sketch…
My card starts off with a base of Lucky Limeade Card Stock. The background uses a piece of paper from the Candlelight Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper Pack. I adhered two pieces of Primrose Petals that I flagged the ends on to the background. A piece of Early Espresso cut out with the Delicate Doilies Large Sizzlit Die is adhered on top of that. The stamped image is from the Ornament Keepsakes Stamp Set and is stamped in Primrose Petals and cut out with the Holiday Ornaments Framelits Dies. I stamped the greeting from the Mixed Medley Host(ess) Stamp Set in Versa-Mark and heat embossed it with Early Espresso Stampin’ Emboss Powder. It’s punched out with the 3/4″ Circle Punch and both the ornament and the greeting are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I think Candlelight Christmas is definitely my favorite DSP in recent memory, I’m going to miss it when the Holiday Catalog ends at the beginning of January. I hope that you enjoyed my Freshly Made Sketches card this week. Thank you for coming to see it and and I hope you have a wonderful day!
