Freshly Made Sketches 347

Wednesday, July 25, 2018

I'm back after a little stamping hiatus!  I'm actually halfway through my second week of vacation and up until now I've been so busy crossing things off of my vacation to-do list that I had no time do any crafting.  But I've traded in my paintbrush and pitchfork for some cardstock and ink and I got busy in my craft room just in time for our newest sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week our hostess is Kim and her sketch is an instant classic!

I recently discovered that I like to use this particular floral stamp set!  It's been in my stash for a while but had remained un-inked for a long time.  I like the shape of the tropical leaves and the flower is fun, so I've used it a couple of times recently.  For this card I used the colors from the latest Sunday Stamps challenge to create my little floral spray. 

Sadly, I'll be back in my office in a few days - vacation will be over {insert sad face here}.  But I'm happy to say that I've had a productive couple of weeks and accomplished quite a lot around the house.  But I will say it's nice to be back in my craft room getting all inky!

Thanks for stopping by!  Our amazing Freshly Made Sketches design team has created some awesome cards to inspire you to play along with us.  And this week we say farewell to our July guest designer Caly Person.  It's been such a treat having her along with us and seeing her fabbo cards!
