Ahh… Thursday! For me it’s Friday! I’m off from work tomorrow! Woo hoo! It rained here yesterday for a good part of the day, and when I say rained I mean poured buckets! The sun did peek out from time to time just let us know that it was still there. Temperature wise it was pretty nice just a little on the muggy side. Are you all ready for Mother’s Day? I made 4 cards last night so I’m good!
Today’s post – Freshly Made Sketches #85, a sketch from Narelle…
You see it… there are some flags on there! The base of my card is Strawberry Slush* Card Stock. I used a piece of the Quatrefancy Designer Series Paper* across the top and embossed the rest with the Modern Mosaic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder*. The image in the middle is from the A Round Array Stamp Set that you can get now either alone or in a bundle with the 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punch. Behind it is some more Strawberry Slush* punched out with the 1 1/4″ Scallop Circle Punch. Behind that is an image from the Happy Flowers Host(ess) Stamp Set” cut out with the Floral Frames Collection Framelits Dies. A 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle completes the middle and under are the flags in Pool Party and Daffodil Delight. I love the nice mix of colors in the DSP and layering the stamp from the A Round Array Set makes it seem bigger than it is. Thank you for dropping by to see my Freshly Made Sketches Card for this week’s challenge. I hope you all have a very lovely Thursday! 🙂

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!
