Freshly Made Sketches 199

Wednesday, August 12, 2015

Hello!  It's Wednesday so that, of course, means it's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!  This week our hostess is our friend from down under, Karren.  And what a sketch she's given us.  Lots of white space to fulfill all of your CAS dreams!



I was actually oddly out of sorts with the big blank space on this sketch. Odd, for sure, if you know me. But then I got to poking around my stash and found these circular images and got to work randomly stamping them onto all that white space.  One thing I knew for sure I wanted to do was use a big sentiment stamp so I left some room towards the right to accommodate that.  These awesome colors are courtesy of the Can You Case It challenge.



Last Friday my niece got engaged to be married. I, as well as many other family members, knew the proposal was going to happen ahead of time so I made a card last week that I was going to send the happy couple once the deed was done.  It was a very nice card.  But once I got to making this card I realized it would be a much better choice for them .  The other one had flowers and some other boring stuff.  This one has lots of graphic images and one fantastic sentiment - and my niece will definitely appreciate it.

Don't forget that in one short week we will be celebrating 200 sketches at Freshly Made Sketches!  We've got some sponsors and prizes lined up to help us celebrate this milestone so you don't want to miss it.  Wondering who those sponsors might be?  Well, check back on the Freshly Made Sketches blog on Friday to see a little sneaky peeky!

Friggin' is one of my most favourite words ever! I try and use it about 3 times a day - so this card is right up my alley! The colours combined with that sentiment make this one awesome card!
