One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Freshly Made Sketches # 87

I'm back from a wonderful trip to Disneyland!  I missed the stamping and challenges, so it feels good to be inky again!! I am starting off with the new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  I brought my cards to bible study today and sold quite a few, so I need to play catch up.  I think a lot of the ladies liked the cards with bible verses on them and also sympathy cards were a big request...
I don't think it is showing up so well, but I did use the linen impression plate on the face of the card to give it some texture.  I stamped onto pattern paper the sentiment...then I pulled from my stash some butterflies and added some pearl blings to the center of them. 

Papertrey Ink paper: white, black, pattern paper
stamps:  Beautiful Blessings, Boutique Borders:  Baby
ink:  momento black
distress ink 


  1. Serene and beautiful! Thanks for joining us at FMS!

  2. How fun, a trip to Disneyland!!! Hope you had a blast. Your card is just beautiful too, those sweet butterflies with that scripture is the perfect pairing. Stunning!

  3. This is a lovely card, and I am totally loving the sketch. I think it would be perfect for something I need to make later. So, thanks a million for the beautiful inspiration!

  4. Col, this is so beautiful. I love it and the butterflies....

  5. This is beautiful, Colleen!
    And congratulations on selling your cards!

  6. What a beautiful card. I think sympathy cards are so hard to make, but are always something good to have on hand because they're even harder to make when you need them (at least for me). Love how you used the new boutique borders stamp on this.

  7. Beautiful card Colleen! I love those butterflies! Such a perfect verse for a sympathy card! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

  8. Gorgeous Colleen! I like that you used butterflies! Love the sentiment too! Hope you had a great time at Disneyland. I had passes for almost 11 years in a row , but did not renew this year. They went up way too much!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a makes my day!
