Freshly Made Sketches 2: Move Mountains

Yesterday, we had a new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and I had two ideas.  For yesterday's official post, I used an autumn wreath.  Today I am "moving mountains"!

FMS Move Those Mountains

This card is going in my stash to use for my youngest son away at college that I'll give to him at a time that he's facing a big decision or struggling with a problem.  Before he left for college this year, he and my brother hiked a 14,000-foot mountain here in Colorado.  I told him at the time that when he's facing tough times in the future, he will remember that he made that climb and feel stronger for it.  So when I saw the new mountain die from Tim Holtz, I had to have it.

And here's the sketch again!

Stamps: WPlus9 Encouraging Words (sentiment and the birds)
Dies: Tim Holtz Alpine dies
Other: Stampin' Up Subtle Embossing folder


  1. What a fabulous card with a great sentiment! I love your idea of what occasion to use it.

  2. This is fantastic and sounds like the perfect card to set aside for your son!

  3. Great card, Kim. it will be so meaningful to him when he needs a boost from his mother. Have a great day!

  4. Love the clean & graphic feel of this design - great colors & message!

  5. I fell silent after seeing your card, reading your text...
    Beautiful card ( big fan of Tim's stuff) but also i felt moved by your love for your son!
    I hope he knows how much you love him and how lucky he is to have you as his mother!
    And yes, when he's challenged he can move that mountain, because he'll have your support and love to help him move that mountain.


Thank you for taking the time to comment on my card! I do get spam comments so your comment will be held until I read it and release it!
