It’s here!!!! Sketch #100!! We are so excited over at Freshly Made Sketches!! We have all kinds of fun things for you. First…the sketch. The very first Queen of Clean is now a design team member – the awesome Cindy Hall! She thought it would be fun to go back to the very first sketch for this one and we all agreed! Next…the prizes. Yes, we have blog candy to give away. See the challenge site for the details! Finally…returning designers. Many of our talented designers from the past have come back to celebrate with us. Links to their cards are on the site.
I loved this sketch the first time I saw it so I was really happy to see it return! I thought I would turn it into a Christmas card using the Merry Little Christmas stamp set. I paired it with the Season of Style Paper Stack and some Season of Style Washi Tape. Where is the tape?? The horizontal panel! I just laid down two pieces to create this pretty textured element. I remain in love with the new buttons and thought they would be good here. They are tied up with Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine. Now I suspect that stamped panel looks familiar. Yes, it is pretty much the same as my FMS card from a few weeks ago. When I was making swaps I somehow ended up with one extra and held onto it “just in case”. Surely I’m not the only one who does that, right?! What do you know, it seemed perfect here!
This is definitely a bit different from my card entered for the first sketch. I remember seeing this challenge concept and was so excited. Finally, my stamping style had a definition and a challenge to match!! To Lesley Croghan and the rest of this extraordinary team, thank you for all you do. I am privileged to be a part of this group and every week I am inspired and awed by their talent!!
Now, off to Freshly Made Sketches to see all there is to see! Can’t wait to see what you create this week!
