Freshly Made Sketches #195

Hey Everyone

Whenever I need a little inspiration to create a card, I find a a great sketch as my starting point.  Like this weeks fabulous sketch at Freshly Made Sketches that’s been designed by the talented Kim Singhdahlsen. This one’s a keeper for sure!


I created this card for one of the girls at work who is retiring after being with us pretty much forever. I love it when a card comes together with ease. I was able to bang this one out in less than 1/2 an hour (that’s pretty good for me!).  The image and sentiment I’ve used are from Stampin’ Up! Hostess sets called Best Thoughts and Happy Birthday Everyone.  The “Thanks” sentiment is made with a die from Greetings Thinlits. The designer series papers are from Everyday Chic DSP.  I think I have every Black & White/Cream DSP pack that Stampin’ Up! has made!


The team has (as always) created wonderful cards to inspire you – head over to Freshly Made Sketches and check them out.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Wow! A half-hour and this is what emerges from those crafty hands of yours! Fabulous! And I’m clearly doing something wrong because I could never put together something so fabulous in such a short period of time!

  2. Great take on the sketch! I love your wonderful inspiration! Your blog is FULL of gorgeous cards! Oh my!!!!! I had to come and let you know how much I like this one and then got to looking at the others too! 🙂 Jill
