Freshly Made Sketches #179- a sketch by Amy

I had an incredibly busy weekend.  We bought my oldest daughter loft bed, so most of my weekend was spent moving her belongings out of her room and then putting them all back. She also had her 9th birthday party this weekend, and my husband had an emergency trip for work, so I was on my own for most of it. I thought I'd break up my cleaning a bit for a little card making, so I whipped up a card for this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge. I got the card done easily enough, but when my computer turned on, it said windows wouldn't load properly. It gave me a few options on what to do. The best option seemed to be to refresh it. Unfortunately, that meant I had to reload all my programs. Made me want to tear my hair out. So after a couple hours trying to get everything back the way I had it, I can finally get my post done.

Here is my take on the sketch: 

Stampin' up! supplies used: 
Stamp sets:Regarding Dahlias, Sheltering Tree
Cardstock- Whisper White, Strawberry Slush
Designer Series Paper-In color DSP stack
Ink -Strawberry Slush, Memento Black

Freshly Made Sketche #178- a sketch by Narrelle

We are anticipating up to 6 inches of snow here in Minnesota. Thought it would be a good idea to stay inside and stamp. So far, it doesn't look like we'll get that much snow, but it's never fun to see this late in March. So, I spent the day dreaming of spring and working on this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
 Here is my take on the sketch:

Stampin' up! supplies used: 
Stamp sets:Bordering Blooms, Endless Birthday Wishes, Petite Petals, Apothecary Art
Cardstock- Very Vanilla, Soft Suede
Designer Series Paper-
Ink -Calypso Coral, Soft Suede
Other-Labels Collection framelits, 1" circle punch, Petite Petals punch, Pearl Basic jewels, Spring Flowers embossing folder

Freshly Made Sketches # 176 - a sketch by Cindy H.

I am so excited for the warm up we are supposed to be getting in Minnesota this week. They are predicting 50's and even a possible 60 degrees over the next week. I am so ready for spring! I am tired of boots and winter jackets. I often question why I live in Minnesota, but the other 3 seasons do make it worth it. Even though the sun was shining and I should get out and enjoy the day, I holed up in my craft room and made a card for this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

Here is my take on the sketch:

Stampin' up! supplies used: 
Stamp sets: Petal Potpourri, Butterfly Basics
Cardstock- Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake
Designer Series Paper-
Ink -Crumb Cake
Other-Very Vanilla seam binding ribbon
