As my kids have reminded me this morning….9 more days until Christmas! Oh my!! So much to do, so little time! We have noticed over at Freshly Made Sketches that I might not be alone on this. Seems like many of you are in the same place…I know our team feels that way. So we have a deal for you. Every year, the team takes a break over the holidays but we leave our sketch open during the whole period so that you can join us if you get some time to craft. This year is no different and my friend Linda Callahan has created a sketch that is classically “FMS”. Clean, inspiring and great for lots of interpretations. You will love it for last minute holiday inspiration or for pulling out your new “not holiday” stamps that you have been itching to use. Or maybe that is just me….. Ok, yeah….it is me but maybe you too??!! So you have lots of time to play along with this sketch. Hope you will!
I kept this one pretty simple and kept to gold. LOTS of gold. The Winter Wonderland DSP was my inspiration and I used a piece in the background plus a piece (one of the stripes) for the crossing panel. I had to pull out the snowflakes again for another go. I have held off since I overloaded you early in the season but I just cannot stop myself from using them. They are so amazing!! I heat embossed this one with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The sentiments are a combination of old and new. ‘Merry’ comes from the old Snowflake Soiree set and the ‘& Bright’ comes from Holly Jolly Greetings. I love them together, don’t you?! They were stamped in Versamark and heat embossed as well. That is it. Easy and fast. ‘Cause that is where I am this week. Maybe I’ll have time for a little more complicated after Christmas!
The team has another round of beautiful inspiration for you. Please make sure you go tell them how much you enjoy all they do each week! When I think about all the amazing work they share over a whole year, I’m in awe. Freshly Made Sketches is a great resource for so many stampers and we are thrilled you allow us to be a part of your crafting world! Thanks to all of you for your support, for playing along and for sharing with us each week too!
