Freshly Made Sketches #254- a sketch by Narelle

I had a super busy week because my husband was out of town. Always harder to manage the kid' schedules when I'm by myself. We also surprised our kids with a weekend trip to Wisconsin Dells, so I had no time to get much crafting done. I sneaked in a bit of time tonight to get a card done for this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge. Had to get it done before the big Packer-Viking game. We live in Minnesota, but it's a Packer household. Go, Pack, Go!

Freshly Made Sketches #246- a sketch by Rita

My wonderful husband took our daughters to his parent's house for the weekend, so I had the house all to myself! I had a few friends over for a scrapbooking/cardmaking get together. I struggled all weekend to come up with a card for this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge. I guess I do better under pressure then when I have tons of free time to come up with something. I literally just finished this card at 8:30pm tonight and I've been at it since Friday morning! There are several discarded versions all over my crafting desk. 



Here is my take on the card:

Stamp sets: Banners for You
Cardstock- Whisper White, Night of Navy, Real Red
