Mother’s Day Tea — FMS386

Well, here it is — May.  And to welcome this new month, we have a new sketch for you over at Freshly Made Sketches.  Our hostess this week is the amazing Jen Brum, our Canadian bestie, and she has a great one for us.  Take a look:

With Mother’s Day right around the corner, I thought I should make another card for the occasion.  I wanted to use the pretty set, called Tea Together.  I love the Tea Room specialty dsp and knew it would be perfect with the sketch.

I almost had a mono-chromatic card, but I just couldn’t stand it.  I wanted that flower to have another color.  I probably should have added some pink elsewhere on the card but I ran out of time.  I may have to add some before I send it in the mail.

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!

Mother’s Day Tea — FMS371

It’s time for another new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week our hostess is our friend from the great state of Massachusetts (who will be cheering on those New England Patriots this weekend, I’m sure), Jen Mitchell.  She has a great one for us too:

I love square cards, but rarely think to make one, so I was excited to see one in this sketch.  One of the fabulous offerings in Sale-a-Bration this year is the coordinating dies for the Tea Together stamp set, which is offered in the Occasions catalog.  You can get the stamp set in the Occasions catalog and then get the framelits for free with a qualifying order.  I love this set even though I’m not a tea or coffee drinker, and I knew it would be fun to color.  I love how the tea pot and cup are large enough to stamp images on.

I stamped the image with Memento black ink and lightly colored it with alcohol markers.  The paper is from the Tea Room dsp package and the little scallop border is from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits.

I know it’s a little early for a Mother’s Day card, but the sentiment just fit so perfectly and I thought it would be great to actually be ahead for once and have a card ready.  Of course, I’ll still be scrambling to get the other one I’ll need ready to mail in time.

We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch!  We love to see what you create as we browse the gallery every 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!
