FMS94: Rainbow of Happiness


Time for a new Freshly Made Sketch!    Linda S. is our sketch creator this week and she gave us this great sketch to work with. When I looked at the sketch before bed the other night my brain somehow got the idea for a rainbow.   I'm all about trying out ideas that come to me like that because you never know if they will make amazing cards or you'll be like "brain, what were you thinking?".   This one actually turned out okay and I kinda like it even though it's pretty simple.   I am still in the mood to use up scraps and this one used a few random 1/2 strips I had in my bags.   


Stamps:  Fabulous Phrases
Ink:  Real Red
Paper:  Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Pacific Point, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White
Tools:  YNS cloud die


Laila got a lot of cute clothes for her birthday.  Here she is modeling the cute outfit that Jason's coworker got for her.   I'm hoping the rest of our week goes okay as her gums are pretty swollen and she appears to be teething.  We say goodbye to grandma today so I'll be back to my three days alone starting tomorrow.   I keep thinking these are the weeks that I wish I liked wine.  lol   Not really, but it does get a bit challenging at times.  ;)

  3. Love the scrap cards. You only THINK your mojo has left.
    I made some wine with a kit a couple years ago and had a friend design a label. It's called Mother's Little Helper. It's tongue-in-cheek, but not without inspiration. Beyoncé should do a version of her song and call it "All the Single Mothers". Hugs, Rita. It IS hard.
