Freshly Made Sketches 107

Posted on

So I did my little commute into the city yesterday, and just like I suspected, I was reminded why I don’t do it every day anymore. I did get lucky in the respect that it didn’t rain, I had a very nice lunch with my friend Kim and I got all the work accomplished that I was supposed to; all in all it was a good day. And bonus, today’s Friday and we all know that Friday is my favorite day of the week! Not sure what’s up for the weekend yet, but I think I’ll be trekking into Manhattan at some point. Anything exciting going on with you?

Freshly Made Sketches is my card for today’s post. This week’s sketch is by Jennifer T…

Freshly Made Sketches #107

This week’s sketch is definitely very clean. I was going to go with the obvious, a flower or a snowflake, but I decided to try something different. I used Whisper White Card Stock for the base of my card. The background consists of a piece of Brights Stack Designer Series Paper backed with a piece of Early Espresso. I used one of the tags from the Pretty Presents Designer Tags, stamped the greeting from Merry Little Christmas in Early Espresso, and again in Real Red to trim out the word “little” and pop it up on a Stampin’ Dimensional. I trimmed off some of the bottom of the tag and then used the Tasteful Trim Bigs XL Die and a piece of Early Espresso Card Stock rick-rack across the bottom. To finish off the tag, I tied a piece of Early Espresso 1/4″ Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon. Some more Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere it to the card. I really like the Tasteful Trim Big XL Die, I don’t know why it took me so long to get it. And I think it’s kind of neat the way the red polka dots fit right inside the rick-rack. Thank you very much for dropping by to see my Freshly Made Sketches card for this week’s challenge from Jen T. Here’s to Friday, hope it’s a great one!
