Another week and another fabulous sketch from Freshly Made Sketches!! Now I KNOW you will love this one from the clever and talented Karren Johnson. She has the most fabulous flair for fun cards and this sketch is just that!
So true confession time. I made this card in 15 minutes. I was called by my scheduler at United on Friday and they gave me a 4 day trip coming back late last night. Uh oh….and no card ready for this week. Yikes! So I used some paper that was sitting on my desk (you’ll see that card on Friday) and put this together fast! I already know what I want to change, lol! But….the good news is you get a nice clean card to see that focuses on this A-MAZ-ING designer paper. Under the Tree DSP. Just get it now. And get an extra pack of Kraft Card Stock while you are there. This DSP is heavier than normal which makes is perfect for tags, boxes and all kinds of other ideas that are spinning around in my head. I took a strip of the Early Espresso Stripe and put it alongside the Kraft on a Naturals Ivory card base. I cut a piece from the Cherry Cobbler tree print and punched it with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and rounded the bottom corners with my Envelope Punch Board punch. The sentiment is a Hostess Exclusive Stamp Set called Good Greetings. And they are seriously good greetings. It is a great time to hostess for sure! I added the cute little gold Mini Metallic Clothespin and the tied the button with gold strands from the Gold Metallic Baker’s Twine. What would I change?? Hmmm….I think I’ll have to post a new version in the next few days if I can get some time to put my idea to paper.
You are going to love all the work from the design team this week and I’m here to say you need to visit the gallery and look around too. Because last week’s gallery blew us away. You should see the angst when we can’t choose all the cards as winners!
I will be back on Friday with this month’s Fancy Friday. And guess what?! It is a sketch that I designed!!! We are giving you the opportunity to play along with us so I hope you will! Until then, have a fantastic week. Thanks so much for stopping in.

I love it!
Homespun delight! Love that DSP as well and I am a fan of those teeny strips of gold!
Way to whip up a card in no time! That gold string adds such a fun touch. I don’t have that dsp, and now you’re making me re-think that decision. We are all the worst enablers, aren’t we.
This is a great card Jen! I love the colours! I am definitely a red/brown/gold Christmas card girl! the clothespin is such a great accent! So pretty!
This is very cool – and especially for a 15-minute card! I wouldn’t even have decided on colors in 15 minutes 🙂 I love the little touches, like the clothespin holding the banner.
Oh how I wish I could create something so wonderful in 15 minutes. You’re a card-making genius!
WOW…15 minutes!! You did a beautiful job in such a short time!! I love the tag and the little clothspin!!
You need to teach me how to create this fabulous card in 15 mins!!! It’s totally gorgeous!
