It has been so fun sharing some of the pictures from Convention over the last few days but I am happy to be “back to business” with the latest from Freshly Made Sketches. I love this one and that is no surprise since it comes from the incredible Amy O’Neill. Yes, it is official…I am a member of her fan club. We all know how talented she is, of course! But she is also a woman with such grace and class that you feel privileged when you get to meet her. I know…I got to spend some time with her at Convention (picture posted yesterday)! I know you will love her card this week, as well as this sketch, so make sure you drop by to leave her a note.
My card falls well into the super clean category this week. I made it last week when I was up to my eyeballs in swaps and was running out of time! To the rescue was the Tag a Bag Accessory Kit. Of course they are fantastic for putting on the Tag a Bag Gift Bags and Boxes but they are also perfect for cards. I just pulled the colors from the tag kit and this one was together in no time. The best part is that you could put together a whole little card set this way (and of course package it up in one of the bags). I used Smoky Slate as a background and embossed the little panel with my Chevron Embossing Folder. I added the sentiment from Six-Sided Sampler and popped the little oval up on Dimensionals. The Tangerine Tango Baker’s Twine is in the kit and is a great finish to the tag.
I look forward to getting back to some stamping this week (or next). I am planning on sharing some of the swaps I received from the Artisan Finalist group. I can’t even wait to show you! So more posts are definitely coming your way.
The design team has made some super fun cards with Amy’s sketch and I know this will be a popular challenge to play! Can’t wait to see you in the gallery!
Thanks so much for dropping by today. I’ll see you again soon!
