Has it really been a week since I posted?! Wow. I’d love to say I knew where the time went but I’m not even sure. I did get the chance to hold some stamping events though and those were such fun! So guess what we have up for your this week at Freshly Made Sketches? Yep, another excellent sketch (like there was any other possible answer)!! Amy O’Neill is such an amazing stamper and I love what she has given us this week. I’m hoping that spring break means you’ll have time to join us because you are going to want to join us!
I needed an Easter card for a teacher in my son’s Religious Education class and thought this sketch would be perfect. I used this pretty flower from Butterfly Basics. I really love this flower. Yes, I did color it with Blendabilities but it could easily be made using classic ink and Blender Pens. The sentiment is from a retired set called Blessed Easter. I tend to save sets like that because they are great to have on hand. Sometimes for the images, sometime for the sentiments but always great when you need a quick go-to! In fact, that is one of the the things I look for when I’m purchasing stamps. Long term flexibility makes stamps a great investment! I used this yellow print from Painted Blooms DSP. I cannot get enough of this DSP as you may have noticed. The variety of prints and the awesome spring colors just make me happy! The 5/8″ Organza Ribbon and some retired Lucky Limeade (that’s a throwback, isn’t it) are combined for the little banner element.
I’m already working on the card for this month’s Fancy Friday hop coming on Friday. I’ll also have an announcement for you then. I can hardly wait to share!!
The FMS team has so much inspiration for you this week. I just love these ladies and all the talent they share every week! And speaking of talent…the gallery continues to wow us every week. Your contributions make me ooh and ahh!! Thanks for sharing with us!!
Ok….back on Friday. Hope you have a great week and I’ll see you then!
