Hey, hey! Welcome to Thursday! Yesterday was a nice day here, a little muggy but warm and sunny. One of my co-workers told me that it was always nice to see me because I’m always smiling and genuinely nice. I thought that was a very cool impression to give to people and it was very nice to be told something so sweet. Sometimes a nice comment can make your day even brighter!
Today’s post – Freshly Made Sketches #88 from Jen M….
Sweet and simple! The base of my card is Crumb Cake Card Stock. I used a piece of Epic Day This & That Designer Series Paper across the lower half. The middle panel is made up of a piece of Very Vanilla that I punched the left edge of with the “Vintage” Spiral Border Punch. A sticker from the Epic Day This & That Sticker Sheets is in the middle and I also used one that I backed with some Very Vanilla on the top. The greeting is from the Really Good Greetings Stamp Set* and is stamped in Calypso Coral and punched out with the Ticket Duo Builder Punch. I made a larger ticket to back it using the 1/2″ Circle Punch. I like the simple layout and I love the Epic Day goodies. Thank you for stopping by to see my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge. One more day and it’s Friday so make today a good one!

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!
