Woo hoo! The weekend is here! I did get out of work at 12:00pm despite their best efforts to thwart my escape! I came home and got my tax stuff together and did some techie stuff and then some crafty stuff. I had a very nice afternoon. This morning I’m off to Manhattan to go to the car show with Anthony, Lisa and Bill. Danielle might be there too. It should be a good time, it’s always fun to look at cars that I can’t afford! LOL!
Don’t forget that there is FREE shipping on all standard shipped orders placed today through Monday!
Today I have my Freshly Made Sketches card for this week’s challenge. This week we have a super clean and simple sketch from Linda…
Yes, I have used my fave Sent with Love once again. I want to get some more use out of it before it goes away. The base of the card is Whisper White Card Stock. I used the Sent with Love Stamp Set and my Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the border in Real Red on Pool Party. Some Island Indigo ribbon from Sale-A-Bration is adhered around the back with Sticky Strip and a piece is knotted on the left side. I used the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch to punch out a hole in the lower right and adhered the panel to the base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The flagged piece and the greeting are cut out from the Sent with Love Designer Series Paper. I punched the greeting out and the hole in the flagged piece with the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch and adhered them to the card with SNAIL. A super clean and simple card for a CAS sketch. It was nice to use the DSP for the focal points too for a change. I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. Thank you for your visit, it is greatly appreciated! Enjoy your Saturday no matter what you do!

Woo hoo! The color renovation has been announced! I’m so happy that they have kept four of the five 2011-2013 In-Colors! I’m a little sad to see that Lucky Limeade didn’t make the cut but we also got some former In-Colors back too! Bermuda Bay, Soft Sky, Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzaz and Blushing Bride along with a new color Smokey Shadow. They have also moved some colors to different families and of course they are retiring some colors. Say so long to Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, Bravo Burgundy, Not Quite Navy, More Mustard and River Rock. Change is a good thing!
