Two by Two FMS # 138

Freshly Made Sketches # 138 is a good sketch challenge. I don’t always get to post but try to get into the grove when I can. This card isn’t exactly along the sketch but fun never the less.


Here is the recipe:
Paper: Whisper White cs for the base; Marina Mist for the tag: layer is WW cs.
Ink: Rose Red
Stamp: Two by Two (retired) and Baby We’ve Grown
Flower Brad: Bakers Twine and Scalloped Tag Topper

Any one interested in learning how to do this can get in touch with me. We will learn together. I have collected a lot of information over the years and if I can’t answer your questions I know where to find someone who can.

There is more but for now…Remember this is the day the Lord has made….Rejoice

Wow what a weekend!

To start off we have had much needed rain. Not the gutter wash kind ,but a good slow rain that will make the new garden just take off. I’ll get pictures later to show the growing progress.
Then, our number 2 Granddaughter had her number one birthday party. She won’t be one until June 6 but we do these things when Daddy is home of course. We also found out she has news…she is going to be a big sister,in December. My goodness this little family is growing by leaps and bounds. Girl number 3 is well on her way.
Next, but really a few hours earlier, we had a new heifer calf born. We will name her AM in honer of GD Number 2’s birthday.
Now to get back to work and get more pictures of the next card challenge and a couple of other birthday cards ready to post.
Until then remember.. This is the Lords day…Rejoice!

Paper Players have an interesting sketch this time. Pretty simple so I kept pretty simple too.

Floral Thank you



This floral card is following Paper Players #196. They ask for “Floral”. No other demands. Here is what I used:

Paper: Whisper White and Pear Pizzazz cs
Stamp: So Very Grateful
Inks: Pear Pizzazz,So Saffron,Calypso Coral,Perfect Plum
The ink was applied with a water brush for a water color effect. The tag ,which doesn’t show up well, says “You’re so very giving”. Who do you know who deserves a” You are so very giving” card? Is it you?
