FMS Final 126-001

Now just look at what Amy O’Neill has created for us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!! These fun off kilter panels add so much personality and will give lots of room for creativity.

FMS126 - Fresh Print Flower

I am continuing on with my spring theme.  Because I am done with winter.  Two more days of lost school for my boys this week and another disruption to the family mojo.  Even the boys are ready for a full week of school…and that is saying something.  *smile*  There is nothing like fun colors and happy prints to brighten the mood a bit so I pulled out the Fresh Prints Paper Pack and started playing.  Aren’t these great?  Because they are slightly larger than card size, the pieces were easy to use for this layout too.  I simply positioned them how I wanted, glued the two prints together, then put little pencil tick marks where I wanted to cut.  I chose another of the prints for this flower from the Fun Flowers Die.  I popped out two, one in the print and one in Real Red, and then another little flower using the new Petite Flower Punch.  The Stitched Grosgrain in Real Red was an easy go-to for the crossing piece of the sketch.  I topped off the flower with a Vintage Faceted Button and some Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine (it coordinates perfectly).  The sentiment is from Gifts of Kindness.

Well, the boys are going back to school today (with a delay) and hopefully, hopefully we’ll get back to a real routine soon.  They certainly have had fun sledding this year and even I have to admit it is really pretty when it first falls.  But the vortex is now welcome to stay in the polar areas!

I am also really excited for this weekend.  The lovely Rose-Ellen Eastman has put together an event for area demonstrators.  We will share ideas and inspiration.  I will be presenting a technique card that you will get to see next week.  Wish me luck…I’m a little nervous but I know I’ll be surrounded by lots of lovely stampers!

Hoping to be back Friday with another project from Leadership.  Until then, so glad you stopped in.  If you are needing a little more spring, make sure you take a look at my Artisan card in the previous post!

What a fun and happy card! I love these colors and patterns together, and the flower is the perfect finishing touch. Hopefully, your boys have had their last snow day! We just had our third one on Monday, which is three more than we had last year in north Texas. But Spring is coming!
