Freshly Made Sketches #196

Hey Everyone

Our sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week has been designed by the very talented Cindy Hall.  Cindy creates gorgeous cards – you’re going to want to head over to her blog and check them out.

As you can see I have strayed a tad from the sketch – I hope Cindy doesn’t mind too much!  The reason for my straying is because my son was sick over the weekend which is my usual crafting time. I ending up taking him into hospital on Saturday where he received fluids and we were stuck there for 5 hours (I imagine we would’ve stayed longer if I didn’t work there and get a bit of special treatment).  I then got sick on Sunday and when I sat down to create a card – nothing came to me! I did originally start off with a rectangle panel, like the sketch, but my fuzzy head just couldn’t figure out what to put on it. So in the end I used my star framelit to cut out a star in the white cardstock, shoved a heap of sequins under some window sheet, added some shaker tape and created a shaker card.  No fussy cutting from me for once! Here’s my card:

Freshly Made Sketches #159

Hey Everyone

I’m typing this wondering where this year has gone…..  My son finished up his last day of high school today and I think I may be a tad emotional about it.  Seems like only yesterday he started primary school and now he’s about to head into the workforce!  Well, into the workforce after he attends schoolies first – not looking forward to him partying it up for 10 nights with half of his school in Rye. That little coastal town is going to hate this time of year!

Time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week the amazingly talented Jen Mitchell is our hostess.  Here’s her great sketch – so many possibilities with this one.

Because Christmas will be here before we know it, I’ve gone with another Christmas card. I decided it was time to create a shaker card so I’ve used the circle from the sketch to make a bauble shaker. The sentiment I’ve used is from Stampin’ Up!s Bright and Beautiful and the little snowflakes I’ve stamped in the shaker are from Endless Wishes.
