Cheerful Critters Wishing a Happy Birthday

It’s another wonderful Wednesday at Freshly Made Sketches!    This week, our fabulously talented and cutest pilot ever, Jennifer Timko, is taking us on a fun trip with a great sketch, and just wait until you see the awesome creations that the ‘Clean Team’ have designed with it!

I wanted to play with my new Cheerful Critters stamp set, and thought this would be such a fun sketch to pair it with.  I chose to change the shape on the sketch from a circle to a square for a ‘window’ for my cute little critter to pop out of.

FMS169-Cheerful-CrittersIs this the cutest little guy!?  I love how the stamp set has a few different encouraging sentiments, but also has a blank sign for you to add a personalized sentiment.


The birthday sentiment is from Crazy About You and the larger gold balloon was created by simply stamping a balloon from the Balloon Bash stamp set on the back of Gold Foil paper and cutting it out.  The stamps and sentiments called for one of the specialty designer sheets from the new Birthday Bash DSP.

FMS169-Happy-Birthday-with-What a fun card, and great for any age, any gender, too.

I hope you’ll visit Freshly Made Sketches to see the jaw-dropping inspiration from the ‘Clean Team’ and that you’ll play along with Jennifer’s fun and versatile sketch this week!
