Pierced Blooms Happy Mail — FMS470

We’re back with another new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week our hostess is the extraordinarily talented Canadian stamper, Jen Brum. Take a look at this fun sketch:

I thought it was only fitting that I should pull out the Pierced Blooms dies for this challenge since Jen had made a couple of cards using the dies earlier this month and made me want them with her cute cards. We joke on the FMS team that we are a team of enablers, and this is just one of the many instances where that is true.

I paired the cute die-cut flowers and leaves with the fun sentiment from the Pretty Perennials stamp set and the pretty ombre paper, which is a Sale-a-Bration offering.

I want to thank y’all for your words of encouragement after my post last week describing our recent tough times. Some good news — my husband is out of quarantine and is feeling much better. He lived upstairs for 13 days and I left him trays of food , clean clothes, etc… without really seeing him. We facetimed each night to catch up about what was going on. He didn’t lose his sense of taste nor smell, but he did lose his appetite. He lost 15 pounds while in quarantine! I really did leave him trays of food three times a day, plus snacks! I swear this would only happen to a man! 🙂

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 created for your inspiration!

Enjoy your Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!

Coloring Therapy with True Love — Monday Montage #182

Welcome to another Monday Montage blog hop!  We are a group of stampers who love to share what we create with you, and all you have to do to follow along is click on the links at the bottom of each post.

Since it has been a rough couple of weeks, I decided to spend some time in coloring therapy. The True Love dsp has some sheets with beautiful floral designs that are just what the doctor ordered for this type of therapy. I cut out a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ piece and put my alcohol markers to work.

Since I needed a sympathy card for a friend who lost her father, I stamped the sentiment from Heal Your Heart, which is one of the free Sale-a-Bration sets available now. I added a little strip of scalloped line ribbon to peek out underneath the sentiment strip.

You’re ready to hop on over to Breelin Renwick’s blog.  I always love seeing what she makes!  If you prefer to work your way backwards, you can jump back to Wendy Weixler’s blog.  Either way, be sure to work your way through all of the blogs so you don’t miss a thing.

If you should happen to get lost in the blog hop links, here is a list of all of those participating:
