Freshly Made Hello


It's Wednesday and time for a new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches! Narelle is our sketch designer this week, so I hope I used enough layers!  I have been having a pretty down month, so I decided to go to my happy place and use a favorite combo of yellow and black.   I just got some new stamps and dies from Avery Elle and decided to put those to use.   Fun stuff!

Isn't that a fun sketch?!  It isn't anything close to one I've done before so I really enjoyed it.  I love the tag topper punches and am so glad I took the plunge and got one!  Totally recommend those! 


I found this old rocking horse back when I was pregnant with Eli and just had to get it.  I never did get rid of it after he passed away, so it has been in Laila's room just waiting for her.  She is finally big enough to hop on it and rock.   She has a blast!    

Just a note, I know I owe a few of you guys some thank you cards for recent orders.  I'm way behind.  Things have been so crazy since we got back from our trip and I can't seem to catch up.   I hope to get those out this week, so forgive me.  My motto for May is Just Keep Swimming!

It is a wonderful sketch - so glad that you went to your happy place - and I love the yellow/black/white - reminds me of sunny days and bumble bees! Darling picture of Laila on her 'new' rocking horse...a wonderful hand-me-down from her brother! Hugs and hope you climb out of your funk very soon!

That comment about the layers just gave me a good laugh Rita! You're spot on with the perfect amount of layers :) This is such an ultra-modern card with the colours, patterns, sequins and sentiment - I just love it!

Such a great take on the sketch! Love the bright colors offset by the gorgeous white space.
