Freshly Made Sketches #208

Hey stamping friends 🙂 How has your weekend been? Mine has been jam packed but with lots of fun things! It started Friday when I got some very exciting stamping news I hope to get to share with you soon!

Then yesterday I got to take pictures of my sister’s kids. She’s opting out of school pictures this year so we had a photo session of our own yesterday. I don’t know what school pictures cost where you live, but it was going to cost her about $60 per child and she has 3 children! Even better, with the foliage right now we got some pretty fabulous backgrounds (much better than the standard gray of school photos). I was thrilled that she was happy with them.

Today I hung out in my stamp room most of the day…mostly because it is freeeeezing outside (high of 45 degrees today)! I’ve made several cards already (mostly for upcoming design team/blog hop commitments), and I get to do lots more stamping tonight because the Patriots game starts at 8:30. Blech. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a fan of the Patriots…if they’re in the Super Bowl, and winning (lol),  but a regular season game is not my idea of great Sunday night tv 😉 Instead I will keep my country music on and color the night away 🙂

For this card I’m playing along with this week’s challenge at Freshly Made Sketches:

FMS Final 208-001

I used this oldie but goody set from Flourishes called Garden Picks. I’ll say it again, I’m so sad they went out of business and I’m still holding out hope they’ll be back one day.  And of course I’m doing more coloring for Kathy’s 30 Day Coloring Challenge!

I colored it with the following Copics:

Jar: BG0000, BG000, BG01, BG10

Yellow Flower: Y11, Y15, Y23

Orange Flower: YR21, YR38, YR18

Red Flower: R30, R32, R37, R89

Leaves: YG61, YG52, YG67

The DSP is Hello Chevron from Carta Bella, and I used MFT Stamps Stitched Circle Stax Die-namics and Jumbo Fishtail Stax Die-namics.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you find time to get inky soon 🙂
