Well, fancy seeing you here! LOL! So nice to have you stop by! How are you today? I’m doing well, getting ready for my three day weekend and with any luck we’ll get out of work a little early on Friday. The weather here yesterday was overcast and muggy and we are supposed to get some rain today and tomorrow. I’m planning on heading into Manhattan tonight with my friend Heather to go and have dinner with my friend Kim. I’m hoping the rain isn’t as bad as they say it’s going to be. Fingers crossed!
Today’s post – Freshly Made Sketches #87, a sketch from Jennifer T….
Super clean and simple, liking this one a lot! The base of my card is Crumb Cake Card Stock. I stamped the Hello, Doily Stamp in Gumball Green off the right edge. The strip of paper is from the Epic Day This & That Designer Series Paper Pack*. The stamps are all from the Postage Collection Host(ess) Stamp Set*. The two stamps are punched out with the Postage Stamp Punch and the friend is punched out with the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch. I like the way the Hello, Doily Stamp goes with the DSP and the colors are great! Thank you for taking some time out of your day to stop by and see my Freshly Made Sketches card for this week’s challenge. Here’s to wishing you a wonderful day!

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!
