Freshly Made Sketches: Praying for You

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


I spent an inordinate amount of time trying to force an idea with this sketch that just didn't work.  Then I ditched the idea and started cleaning up the piles of failed stamps, cardstock, dies, etc.  As I was cleaning up, I saw another stamp set and ta-da! This new idea came together in about 10 minutes.  I really need to learn to give up on bad ideas sooner and move on to better ideas!!

FMS Praying for You

I love this bouquet.  It's a new-to-me set from Pink & Main and actually is meant to go the other way.  It's a frame of flowers with one bouquet at the top and one at the bottom.  Such fun flowers!

I don't have many long sentiments but was thrilled to find this one in my stash (also never used!) from Simon Says Stamp that's just right. I think this all just perfect for brightening somebody's day!

I hope to see you playing along with us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

Ah, the best laid plans... It always amazes me that when I am stumped for a sketch I will suddenly see some random thing that sparks an idea. Glad to know that I'm not the only one this happens to! I love the neutral gingham along with that coral colored strip. And the colorful flowers are so pretty.

Gorgeous Card! I like everything about it. The plaid, the bold flowers and the fun font all come together so nicely.
