I am happy to be back with the latest from Freshly Made Sketches. Our sketch hostess this week is wonderful Linda Suarez and she has brought us an awesome layout! Just looking at the variety from the design team, I know this is going to be another fun week in the gallery (last week was so great!).
I decided it would be fun to flip the sketch and play with some new things that hadn’t even left their packaging. I need a card for my dear brother-in-law so I tried to keep it “man card” enough too. The first thing I broke out was the Chalk Talk Framelits and right after that, Yippee-Skippee. The papers from Sweater Weather DSP were just what I needed for this one. I made the Chocolate Chip tag by cutting the paper to the width of the framelit and sliding it under only on the side with the clipped corners. Then I stamped the sentiment on the Sahara Sand print and cut it out with another of the framelits. I added on some chevrons cut out with the Chevron Border Punch. Finally some Soft Sky Seam Binding was tied on with a Crushed Curry button and some Linen Thread. Now look at that…I used all the colors from the Fab Friday challenge this week too (and I never use that many colors!). I look forward to giving this to my brother-in-law and can’t wait to meet up with him and the family for his celebration.
Now head right on over to FMS to see the great cards from the design team this week…then don’t forget to link up and join in! Thanks to all of you who made such kind comments on my 9-11 post last week. Your words spoke straight to my heart and I’m deeply appreciative!
My Wednesday Artisan project, a burlap flower box, went up a little earlier so don’t forget to go check it out! See you again soon! Have a great week!
