We have a new sketch for you today over at the Freshly Made Sketches site, and this week our sweet Floridian friend, Cindy Hall, has a great sketch for us. Take a look:
I think you could do just about anything with this sketch, don’t you? I knew I needed to make a birthday card for my grandmother, who will be celebrating her 90th birthday next week. What a milestone! My extended family is hosting a big party for her, but as she’s over 400 miles away from where I live, I won’t get to attend. So I wanted to make a special card for her.
I pulled out the Number of Years stamp set and coordinating dies for this one. I used a color palette of Rich Razzleberry, Cajun Craze, Peekaboo Peach, Old Olive, and Pool Party. The textured dsp is from the Fancy Frost Specialty dsp pack.
I had to laugh when my seventeen year-old son saw this card. His reaction was one of concern — “Isn’t it a little rude to put someone’s age on her card, especially when she’s that old?” I had to explain to him that it may not be politically correct, but when you reach 90, it’s something to be celebrated and recognized.
We hope you’ll join us and make your own card for the sketch. We love to see what you do with it as well. Meanwhile, be sure to hop on over to the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for a big helping of inspiration. You’ll love what you see!
Enjoy your Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!
