Freshly Made Sketches 135

Posted on

That was a very good Friday! I got to go on my 50+ mile field trip and enjoyed it thoroughly even though it was gloomy. I got a lot accomplished at the office too, a very productive day. Anthony, Bill and I went to Friday’s for dinner and we waited to sit with our favorite waitress Meg. Since it’s Mother’s Day weekend they had a special, 1/2 price bottles of wine so we thought why not! We had the Cupcake Pinot Noir, delicious! After dinner we ran to Target because Anthony needed some stuff. I picked up some Watermelon Oreos and Birthday Cake M&M’s. We tried the M&M’s and they are quite yummy! I’ll let you know about the Watermelon Oreos! How was your Friday? I hope that it was just as good as mine! I also have an extra card for you today so be sure to scroll down after you see today’s post!

The post that I have for you today is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches. The sketch this week is brought to us by the talented Narelle…

Freshly Made Sketches #135

A neat layout that would work for any kind of card. I decided that I would do a masculine birthday card. You can never have too many cards on hand ready to go right?! I also wanted to combine a new favorite with some old ones. My card starts off with a base of Early Espresso Card Stock and the background is a piece of Summer Starfruit that I embossed with the Alphabet Press Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. My panel is a piece of the Soho Subway Designer Series Paper that is backed with some Island Indigo and adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. That great suitcase is from the Traveler Stamp Set* and is stamped in Early Espresso, I cut it out with my Paper Snips and adhered the panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals too. My greeting comes from the Four You Stamp Set and is stamped in Island Indigo. Tucked under it are three flags that I cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits from a piece of Gold Foil Sheet. The detail in the stamps from the Traveler Set is quite amazing as you can see in the closeup picture and I will miss Summer Starfruit and the Soho Subway Designer Series Paper. But there will be plenty of new stuff to play with and I will get to make new favorites! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. I’m always happy to share some of my day with you! Make sure that you do something fun and have a great Saturday! 🙂
