Today at Freshly Made Sketches I am the hostess! I created this fairly simple sketch with the idea that it would work with a wide range of styles. Even though I'm in a bit of a clean-and-simple mode, I added in some layers and went more for just clean.
This card is one of those special cards that was made with someone in mind. :) A few months ago I received an email in the middle of the night from one of my readers, Andrea. She noticed that Stampin' Up! had updated the Clearance Rack and that the Spice Cake DSP was on it. She knew I was hoarding what I had left and wanted to make sure I was able to get some. Sweet, right? I wasn't able to order because of bills and holiday spending, but I soon got an email that she was sending a pack my way. I'm pretty sure I cried a bit. It's amazing when someone you've never met does something so nice for you and I feel lucky that my blog has brought her and other sweet people like her into my life.
Andrea says I inspired her to purchase the Fun Flowers die, so I thought it was only fitting that I use it on the card I made for her. :) It is probably my favorite die and if you don't have it yet, I'd highly recommend it. Now that Sale-a-Bration has started, it is the perfect time to get it too!
And speaking of Sale-a-Bration, I thought I'd share another card made with the one set that I have on hand. I wanted to have something to link up to still addINKtive's "Spot the Sale-a-Bration stamps". I loved Annette's color scheme and used it for my card. I think it is going to be a new favorite for sure. :)
It's a little different than my sketch, but the idea is still there.
I love how peaceful she looks in her sleep. Lately it's the only time she's quiet! lol
