Freshly Made Sketches 108

Saturday, October 19, 2013

I love the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week.  Lately, I find working with a sketch is helpful.  My cards seem to come together faster, and with less stress. Yes, I said stress!  Tell me you've all experienced that feeling?  You're trying to put together a card/project to post.  The dog is barking, the timer just went off on the dryer, your daughter is wanting you to look over her school project, the dishes are still sitting in the sink from dinner, then your other daughter (who's away at college) is blowing up your phone with text messages!  Secretly, you think "thank goodness my husband is working late tonight!  Yes, sometimes there's stress.

Now I know why I've been using more sketches lately!

If you are looking for some sketches to try, Pinterest is a great source.  Also, in a previous post, I listed some of my favorite sketch sites.  You can find that post here.

Supplies:  Stamps: Hero Arts and My Favorite Things (Sentiment)  Paper: Carta Bella 6x6 paper Pad - So This Is Christmas  Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black  Accessories: Snowflake and Label, and scallop border Die Cuts - My Favorite Things, Spellbinders, Copic Markers, Bling, Baker's Twine and Ribbon.


  1. What a pretty Christmas card! I love the happy snowman, the delicate snowflakes, and the scallops. Thanks for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!

  2. It is cute card, Cheryl! I love the snowman and your scallop border :)
    And yes, working with sketches is less stress.

  3. I love all of the little touches on your card - the bling with the snowflake, the twine on the bow, the layered scallops... and your snowman is fabulous! Cute, cute card.

  4. Very cute card! Like the snowman, coloring, papers, and the textured, scalloped border looks great. :)


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
