It’s the last Wednesday of Summer vacation for my kids, and I think I’m probably sadder about that than they are. I love having them home for the Summer, and I love the relaxed schedule that Summer provides. I’ll have one in high school, one in middle school, and one in elementary school again this year. And that means three different start times, and lots of activities to keep track of.
Of course, Wednesday also means it’s time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. And this week the always delightful and majorly talented, Linda Callahan has a fabulous sketch for us.
One of the new sets in the upcoming Holiday catalog that I love is the Four Feathers set. Just like the name says, there are four fabulous feather stamps in this set. And to make it even more fabulous, there is a coordinating framelits set. I love that!
I decided to flip the sketch over on its side to better accommodate the feathers. I embossed them with Pool Party and Crushed Curry embossing powders, and added a little Strawberry Slush Thick Baker’s Twine on the black button. The sentiment is from the Hi There stamp set.
I hope you can find some time to join us and play along with this challenge. We always love to see what you make. You can drop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to get some inspiration from the design team. They always inspire me!
Enjoy your Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful card – as always Amy! And I know exactly what you mean about feeling more sad than the kids for back to school time. Mine are grown now, and I still get that funny feeling in the pit of my stomach this time of year for back to school time. I was always sad to see them go back after summer. 🙂
Love the embossed feathers! You make wonderful cards with feathers – I never know what to do with them! And I love the bold black with it all! Hope your kids have a great year back in school!
Love your feathers card, Amy! Beautiful!! I always admire everything you make!

There you go again with an eclectic color combo! Love the flipped sketch and the embossed feathers are brilliant! Your design packs quite a punch!
Fabulous card Amy! I love those feathers! Super cute! Love how you’ve turned the sketch! I hope your kids have a great first day of school! I’m looking forward to school starting again! I think the boys are ready to go back as well! They start to get a little stir crazy come the last week in August!
Another fabulous color combo, Amy! And a great interpretation of the sketch – those feathers look wonderful!
Hey! I love that feather cluster! 😉 They are fantastic with the embossing! 🙂
Oh my, oh my – this CAS card is absolutely stunning Amy! I just ordered that feather stamp set because I fell in love with your feathers!
Gorgeous! I love your sideways use of the sketch and your soft feathers are wonderful against the bold black and white.
I love your take on the sketch! The feathers were a perfect choice, and I love the colors against the crisp black, white and red. Stunning card. It certainly caught my eye!
I had convinced myself that I didn’t need these. Sigh…I might as well break down now. We all know it will happen eventually!
