Freshly Made Sketches: Oh Happy Day

Copic charts for the new Stampin' Up In Colors are on my sidebar!

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Jen Brum.

My get-up-and-go definitely got-up-and-went this past weekend when I needed to be making this card.  I wasn't motivated to do anything.  Not chores, not work, not fun, not cards - and it so NOT me to just want to sit and stare at bad TV.  I would have paid a lot to make my family disappear for a few days so the bad TV could have been Hallmark Channel instead of baseball and hockey.   I'm not sick. I'm not extra-stressed. Who knows?  Let's just hope that I find some motivation when I head to work!

Given how much effort it took to drag myself to my craft table, I don't hate my card!!  On any other weekend, there are a few things I would have re-done - but for this week, I'm content!!

FMS Oh Happy Day

Thankfully it's a great sketch that immediately led me to a flower die, a large sentiment and a bold pattern!!  Have fun with it!!



  1. Fantastic card, I see no sign at all of loss of mojo here! That paper on top is so perfect for the stamps/dies.

  2. This looks like summer, lovely card!

  3. I think this card is just magnificent! Those flowers are beautiful and the baby is so pretty! You've done a great job! Don't worry - sports TV goes here ALL the time! I've resigned myself to PVR'ing Hallmark movies and watching TV alone upstairs!!!

  4. For being unmotivated, you've created a gorgeous card! I love the black with the bold, pretty flowers. Glad you could have a day to relax and recharge.

  5. Sometimes we just need some downtime and if we can get past the guilt, it's actually quite therapeutic. In the meantime, your card doesn't look anything other than your usual gorgeous work.

  6. This is simply stunning and can't imagine why you would want to change a thing! That floral paper is SOOO pretty! I think we all need to just vegetate sometimes! Life gets so hectic at times that we just have to take an occasional time out. :-)

  7. I am loving the big splashy flowers! Very pretty card! And I am glad to hear that I am not the only one who definitely needs time away from the desk!

  8. What a lovely card. I love that you used a dark card base because it really shows off the florals beautifully!
