FMS92: Send Me Soaring in In Colors

It's Wednesday and time for a new Freshly Made Sketches sketch!  This one comes Jen B and boy did she throw us a curve this week!  (ha ha, I know!)  My stamping struggles are still continuing, so my card this week is pretty blah.  I decided to use this sentiment and maybe I can send it to myself.  ;)

Stamps:  Send Me Soaring (retired)
Ink: Crisp Cantaloupe
Paper:  Pistachio Pudding, Whisper White, Crisp Cantaloupe, In Colors DSP stack
Tools:  Big Shot, Cloudy Day embossing folder, circle punches
Accessories:  Pistachio Pudding Ruffled Stretch Trim, White Baker's Twine

My mom arrived today and she'll be staying two weeks with us!  I'm so excited.  She's already been laughing and having a great time with Miss Laila.   I still can't believe that she'll be one tomorrow.  Where has the past year gone?  


  1. I love how you attached the ribbon to the card. Very pretty.

  2. Your card is sweet as can be! The ribbon is a perfect hilltopper! Happy birthday miss Laila!

  3. I love your card Rita! It's perfect for summer and I love your rolling green hills! I hope Laila has a fabulous first birthday tomorrow! I can't wait to see the pictures!!!!

  4. Pretty card Rita! I love the photo of your mom with Laila! So sweet!

  5. I think that your card is lovely and not blah at all! Darling picture of your mom and Laila....Big happy birthday wishes to her and congratulations to you and your husband...she is sooooo adorable!!!

  6. There is not one "blah" thing about this card! The DSP makes a great hill and the embossed clouds are such a great background for flying kites!

  7. I love how you created a scene from this sketch, Rita! All the details, from the textured clouds, to the hillside and the cute little kites! Great creativity!

  8. Your card is not Blah Rita - it's just gorgeous! Love the grassy ribbon curve you've created and your kites are just too cute!


I love comments! Thanks so much for stopping by to say hello. :)
