Freshly Made Sketches: Cocktails!!

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

I've done it.  I've survived!!  All presents are purchased and wrapped.  All but two cards are made and those are for Christmas day (and for my sons).  The house is decorated (it was wonderfully fun being in a new house with space for different decorations.)  I've done no baking which was happy and sad all at the same time.  Sad because I always bake.  Really sad because we haven't had a working oven since we moved in (it's a long annoying story involving warranty companies trying to wait us out and repair people who don't return phone calls).  But it's also kind of happy in an odd sort of way because it took a bit of pressure off of Christmas!!  AND I had finally gotten around to deciding on a dining room table in early November so I could have it for Thanksgiving - it didn't make it - but it is scheduled to be delivered this Friday!!!  (Fingers crossed that I love it because I truly am not a decorator.) it any wonder I used cocktails on this card??!!

I love those drinks.  I want those drinks.  I had this set out on my desk to make a card for a friend - and when I saw the angled panels on this sketch, it seemed just right.  Although I seriously doubt Narelle envisioned the oval being a cocktail tray when she designed the sketch.

I added a lot of sparkle using a Versamark pad for the background and pen to do parts of the cocktails, along with Taylored Expressions Diamond Embossing Powder.

I hope to see you play along with us.  Remember - we are taking a break next week so this sketch will end on the 31st.



  1. I'll take one of those cocktails! I'm still waiting on a couple of gifts to ship and it's making me quite nervous. Your card is fun and festive and I love the pretty colors. Cute card! Have a wonderful Christmas, Kim!

  2. This is festive and fun Kim, cute take on the sketch!

  3. I’d say you definitely deserve a fancy drink! Fun card! The bright colors are perfect

  4. Sounds like you deserve those cocktails! And they look delicious on your card! I hope your oven woes get resolved soon. And I hear you on the repair companies who won't return calls - I've been trying to find a plumber for a project in my house and can't get anyone to call me back. Nuts!

  5. What a great card Kim! Love your amazing colouring and those sparkly stars! Hope your dining room table is exactly what you wanted! No working oven?! Eek! I don't know what I'd do!!! Hope you get it all sorted out soon!

  6. Your cocktail tray looks amazing - and what a clever take on the sketch. Such a fun card!
