Okay! It's Wednesday and that means Freshly Made Sketches! Monday really threw me off and I almost forgot to make my card on time. Not good! I did remember while Laila was napping and managed to complete it before she woke up. Those naps are a lifesaver! :-) Anyway, I think you'll have a lot of fun with this sketch that our awesome Artisan Jen T. created.
Now... in an attempt to chase off some of my cardmaking blues I'm starting a new strategy. Instead of just making random cards, I'm going to try making them with a person in mind to send them to! Or at least most of them. I have two friends who are having babies soon, so I picked one of them to stamp for this time. Brandi is my best friend from graduate school and is having a little girl after two boys. She's like me and not super girly, so I went with a dinosaur. I did make it pink, but I think that's fun. I used Pirouette Pink for all the pinks, but they sure don't look the same in my picture. Strange! I do wish I'd used Pear Pizzazz instead of Wild Wasabi now that I look at it, but it's fine.
Ink: Wild Wasabi, Pool Party
Paper: Whisper White, Pink Pirouette, Wild Wasabi

We took flowers out to Eli and the rest of Jason's family on Monday. Laila doesn't understand the cemetery of course, but she does recognize Eli's picture.
