I hope you are having a fabulous week! I am in week two of spring break-a-pa-looza. My younger son has the break this week. We are taking advantage of the nicer weather and doing some gardening and other outside things. I also got to go with my boys on a short trip to the Shenandoah River State Park for some unplugged time. The weather was beautiful for the days we were there and we all had a blast.
So onto my card for this week at Freshly Made Sketches. The oh so amazing Jen Mitchell is this week’s hostess and she has given us another fun sketch that has a cool angled layer. Amazing how the twist changes the card in such a great way.
I decided to base my card on this cool new embossing folder called Splish Splash from Spellbinders. This wave pattern seemed like a fun place to start my image panel. I used my Birthday Bash Washi Sheets to create the little boat. I just cut the right size and applied them to Whisper White card stock and they were ready to go. The patterns are such fun! The base of the boat is my 1-3/4″ Circle Punch cut in half and then I just created the sails with rectangles cut in half. The sentiment is from the So You stamp set (it is becoming a go-to for me) and I added a little bit of extra to the rectangles using the Stitched Rectangles dies.
The team has some really awesome work to share with you this week and you are going to have a blast joining in this week. I’m going to keep working on the gardening and hanging out with my 9 year old. Maybe, just maybe, we’ll even get some stamping done together. I always love seeing what he creates when his big brother isn’t around to take charge. *smile* Thanks so much for dropping in today. See you soon.
