Creative Sketches Week 19 Navy, White, Cherry Cobbler

 Back with another Creative Sketch. This week we are featuring the colors Navy, White and Cherry Cobbler. It's also my "baby's" birthday this week, he is turning 17, so I needed a birthday card for him. And in typical guy fashion, he told me he didn't need a card, just his present. Tough dude, mom still made a card. I have the added advantage of being able to up-cycle it into a new card for From Our Hearts and rescue it from the trash bin where most of my guys send their cards.

Since Sno-klahoma has had yet another mini blizzard of snow  timed perfectly for his birthday, I chose the Extreme Snowboard and Extreme Elements stamp sets for my card. The sentiment is from the new Bring On The Cake set in the Occasions Mini catalog. Quick and simple for the guys. They really do appreciate the thought but don't care how fancy it is. I used Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy and Whisper White cardstocks, Night of Navy, Marina Mist, Bashful Blue, Riding Hood Red and Cherry Cobbler inks. True Red, White and Blue.

Hoping this next week provides for some creative time since I'm on mini break from designing Cards for the Troops. I can use the time to get more organized and catch up on my card stash.
