Happy Wednesday to you! I hope your week is going well. Here to share the latest from Freshly Made Sketches. The amazingly talented Kim Singdahlsen is our sketch hostess this week and I was super inspired by her challenge. It seemed just right for a baby card I needed to make for a very special family member whose shower is coming up.
I thought the set called “i love you momma” from Picket Fence Studios was perfect for both the sketch and for the shower. And I admit that I’m a total sucker for the namesake sentiment since one of my boys says that to me (more lately with all that has been happening). I stamped both the momma goose and her little one using the new Picket Fence Studios Hybrid Ink. It was my first time using it and I wanted to give it a go with Copic markers. And I love it! Works great and I can’t wait to try it with more mediums.
After I had colored the geese, I cut them out with new prototype dies for the set. More dies will be coming to the shop soon and I’m really excited about that. I added a sentiment from the set and then started with some details. The Double Stitched Square Dies from Gina Marie Designs are wonderful and I love this pretty gingham paper from Lawn Fawn. To keep with the sketch I added some ribbon and a coordinating button from my stash (SU retired). I included most of the colors I used below but the grays are the Toner Grays.
I’m so happy you stopped by to visit today! I want to share one more thing with you. Starting on Monday, Picket Fence Studios started their Black Friday WEEK Sale. Not just one day, no way!

I hope that this finds you having a great week! Here today with the latest from Freshly Made Sketches. Our host this week is the extraordinary Karren Johnson…one of my coloring idols! She has created a sketch that is sure to be a go-to!!
I thought I’d take a little twist on it and create a split card with this cute Gotta Have Gingham paper (Lawn Fawn) and popped it up leaving the sentiment section recessed. I had this little lion left over from coloring for last week’s FMS card and knew he’d be perfect for the sketch. Could not let an image this cute get lost in the pile of “to be used” stuff. He is from the Jungle Littles set (Hello Bluebird) and I just him for a baby card! I found just the right sentiment in a set from Winnie and Walter that I got at Stamping Away called Sketchy Thoughts…it is one of those you’ll see a lot from me because the sentiments are really fantastic, really usable and perfectly sized! I added on a little bit of twine and called this one complete. I have just the recipient in mind for this one…I’m going to be a great-Aunt in the fall and I’m so excited for my niece and her husband!!
As always, the design team over at FMS has outdone themselves!! So many fun interpretations of the sketch. I hope to see you in the gallery this week! Thanks for stopping in. See you soon!

I think this little set is simply precious and I fell in love with the giraffe. With a baby them in mind, I chose soft Distress Ink Colors and colored this little fellow on Fabriano Watercolor paper. Just a little masking to allow him to sit on the block.
I masked the sentiment as well to mix the script with the print….love the flexibility to do that! Once everything was stamped and colored, I cut the image layer and the gingham paper using cross stitched dies. Finally a little black twine for an added detail.
I talked a bit about the Stamping Away retreat that I attended last week in my post from Wednesday and this is another of the sets so generously given to us by Shay of Winnie and Walter. She really is incredible!! And the Rerun has cards created by some of my retreat friends too so make sure to go see them all!
I’m also linking this with the Simon Wednesday Challenge where the theme is Girl Power and the focus is on Winnie and Walter stamps. Hope you enjoy my card and that you will be inspired to join in this month! Make sure to go check out the Winnie and Walter blog for all the details! Thanks so much for stopping in. See you soon!
