Freshly Made Sketches 274!

Wednesday, February 8, 2017

The last few days were very busy for me.  I was trying to get a bunch of things done before the weekend so that I could watch the Super Bowl in peace.  Well, if you watched the game you know it was an edge-of-your-seat thrill ride - at least the fourth quarter was!  Being from New England I am well aware that everyone else hates the Patriots but it was a great game and sweet ending to a tumultuous couple of years.  #RogerThat

Now that's out of the way we can move on to the real reason you are here - the newest challenge at Freshly Made Sketches is up today and our design this week comes to you from Canada - where I'm pretty sure that Jen Brum doesn't care about my football team!


Sometimes there is a strange phenomena in challenge blogland where different ones will have eerily similar themes.  This weeks offering is Addicted to CAS with a "pets" cue word and Just Us Girls who is looking for dogs.  I've had this doggy footprint die for quite some time and obviously these two challenges were the perfect excuse to use it.  And I love that the footprint is inside of a heart!

My friends at Freshly Made Sketches have made some fantastic cards with the sketch this week so be sure to check them out.  We hope to see you in the gallery!

Stamps:  Who Let the Dogs Out (Technique Tuesday)
Paper:  Fresh Snow Linen, Sweet Blush (Papertrey Ink); Black (Simon Says Stamp)
Ink:  Jet Black (Altenew)
Accessories:  Dog Icons die (Paper Smooches); Stitched Sentiment Flag die (Lil' Inker); Midnight Blend sequins (Avery Elle)

For a cat lover, you sure do make cute dog cards! Love the pink and black color scheme too. We kept the game on after halftime just to watch the commercials. So glad we did, as the 4th quarter and OT were amazing.

Oh, how I love this! You're right, the paw print inside the heart is just the best! And I'm not a sports fan, but I do love reading your summary of the game. 😊 Now I'm off to tell my friends who make cards for a pet shelter gift shop about that stamps set!
