Sweet Turtle — FMS577

We’re back with another new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week our sketch comes from the Heartland compliments of Judy Rozema. Take a look at her fun sketch:

I needed a card to send in a care package for my college daughter. Spring Break is over and she is back in the thick of things in that final semester. It’s hard to believe we’ll have another one finished with college in just a few weeks! However, the checkbook won’t get much relief as our youngest will be off to college in the Fall. She still hasn’t decided where she’s going yet, and her choices range from schools that are 250 miles away to 1,500 miles away. It’s a tough decision, and I just pray she’ll pick the one that will make her happiest (and maybe the one that is the closest and the least expensive). 🙂

I hadn’t used the Playing in the Rain set yet, and the turtle in that set is adorable! I decided to use him in one of the focal circles and use the flowers stamp for the other two circles.

I colored the images with my alcohol markers and used some of the Rain or Shine dsp. The little sun is from February’s Paper Pumpkin kit, which coordinates with this stamp set and dsp as well. The sentiment is from the Happy Labels stamp set.

We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch! We love to see what you make as we browse the gallery each week. Meanwhile, be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has made for your inspiration.

Enjoy your Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!

  1. This is such a cute card! I love that turtle and the sweet flowers! Your daughter will love it! How can she be done school? I feel like she just moved away! Time sure flies!

  2. This is so sweet and I’m sure it will be so appreciated during these last hard weeks. How can it be that she is finishing (but yay!). And I wish for you the close and less expensive choice on the next one. We are starting the search for my youngest now and it is so overwhelming for them.
