Freshly Made Sketches #300

Happy Monday!! Just popping in to help celebrate Freshly Mades Sketches Anniversary. It is their 300th sketch-how exciting is that?

I chose to make a really simple card, using pre-made die cuts and papers from Doodlebug Design, as well as a stamped sentiment by Altenew.

Who says a card has to take hours to make? I adore this "Cream and Sugar" collection by Doodlebug that has been sitting on my desk for MONTHS. I decided I needed to use it!!

I did make a boo boo, as you can see. For those of you who LOVE Nuvo Crystal drops-how do you get them to be flat? I got a little extra pink on the cheeks due to a little thread. I was so mad!! Even erasing it with a sand eraser did not help.

Here is the anniversary sketch #300 from Freshly Made Sketches.

That is all from me today. Thank you for stopping by and have a FABULOUS day!!

That coffee cup is so cute Nora and I love how you mixed your pretty papers.

This is so sweet! The whole coffee theme is awesome. As for flattening the Nuvo drops, try flicking the paper with your fingers from underneath. (Like you are flicking a bug from your shirt)! It does a good job of flattening the mound!
