How can it be that this is the last Freshly Made Sketches challenge of the year?! The time has flown by! This amazing sketch is courtesy of the lovely and talented Amy O’Neill. I think everything she makes is extraordinary so it is no surprise that this sketch is too. We will have this challenge open for longer than the usual time and it will not close out until January 6th. The team will be taking the holidays off but I hope that means you will have plenty of time to play along.
I pulled out some new things to play with for this one. First of all, the new Occasions Catalog has Banner Framelits. Oh yeah!! Two of the sizes here are the smallest ones and the range up to some nice big banners. Love them! I paired the framelits with some new DSP called Retro Fresh. Some fun colors and prints, don’t you think? Finally I just had to show you the new Essentials Wooden Elements. These are so on trend and easy to use. I just stamped right on the wood with a sentiment from Six-Sided Sampler. I added some watermarks with the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and used the Coastal Cabana Ruffled Ribbon to complete the sketch. This came together fast because it had to! I’m still making Christmas cards (yes, yes…I know) and hoping to have most of them in the mail by tomorrow. We’ll see….
Ok, so these new things will be available on January 3rd (yippee!!) and I’m happy to answer any questions you have about them. Now I have one more piece of news. This is the last week that design team member Linda Suarez will be with us. She has some fun plans for the new year! I am always inspired by Linda’s work and I will personally miss seeing her FMS cards. A special thank you to her for all that she has done for our team. Make sure you drop by and give her a good send off!
I’m so glad you stopped in today. I really appreciate you coming over and I look forward to seeing you again soon! Have a great week!
