I’m happy to have the last Freshly Made Sketches card of the year to share with you today! Whew….always amazing to look back at all the sketches and inspiration!! It is fitting that our resident birthday girl, Linda Callahan, is also today’s sketch hostess. I could sing Linda’s praises all day long but suffice it to say that she is one of a kind in her humor, talent and overall amazingness! And she, thankfully, gave us a really great sketch that will carry us through the holiday season. Feel free to use it multiple times and make sure to share with us!
As Christmas sneaks up on me (how…I cannot explain), I knew that it was time to reach into my pile of UFOs (Unfinished Objects). You may recognize this flower as the same one I used back on FMS304 but it has the flower name along side. I colored with the Chameleon Color Tops Pens and cut it out with a stitched oval. While it didn’t work how I wanted it to then, it works perfectly for today’s sketch. And all the stamping/coloring/cutting was already done! I backed it up with this awesome striped ribbon and pretty much called it done. Yay for UFOs…of course this justifies my keeping that pile so not sure if it is an overall win, haha.
As we get closer to Christmas, my “day job” schedule is really busy. Not sure how much stamping I’ll get to do but I’m already looking forward to having things to share with you in the new year. Until next time, thank you so much for stopping in!
