Freshly Made Sketches 54

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

We're halfway through the week folks!  Yay!  And Wednesdays around here mean an awesome new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches!  This week Jen T has got a great sketch with lots of possibilities!



As per my usual, I spent quite a bit of time wandering around my stamp room looking at this stamp set and that trying to figure out what I wanted to do with this sketch before I decided that I could do a little something with the color challenge at Fab Friday and this adorable stamp set from The Alley Way Stamps.


This card ended up being not quite what I had envisioned when I started, but it's close!  Why does that always seem to happen to me?  I mentioned in a recent post that my mother took up candlepin bowling a few years ago and has started up with her bowling league again so I suppose she'll be pleased and surprised to get this in the mail.  You may be unfamiliar with candlepin bowling, but I'm sure my fellow New Englanders know what it's all about.  You can read about it here.

I hope you have time this week to pop on by Freshly Made Sketches and join us this week.  The uber-talented design team has got some fabulous cards to show you which I know will get your creative juices flowing!

Great shading on the images and well done for incorporating the colors into a bowling card! =) I grew up with duckpin bowling in CT but had never heard of candlepin bowling before. Learn something new everyday! Thanks for sharing with us at Fab Friday!
