Happy November, everyone!
I feel like 2020 lasted three years, and 2021 was only three months! Wow, has this year flown. And this last week was a total blur. I had a wonderful time in Arizona, but did not feel I was there long enough at all. Another trip will just have to be planned. My sister and I had a great time, and made some crafty things that I will be showing later this month.
But - today is Wednesday and it's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Jen M is our hostess today, and I love the sketch. I'm surprised I didn't go with a circle, because they make me happy, so I'm saving this sketch for another time WITH a circle!
I cut the tag from a watercolored square that was in my mixed media
prints and paints. I love
that little corner of Bundled Sage DOX in the lower right - a darker and
cooler green that is peeking into the tag. The gold and burgundy leaves
are Ash Leaves Dies from Picket Fence Studios. The sentiment is from
the beautiful Phoenix Rising stamp set by Visible Image Stamps. My
stamped leaf was watercolored and then fussy cut from the larger panel I used as the background.
I added my favorite
gold metallic thread from Kreinik, and two types of twine at the top. The gorgeous Pale Yellow Glitter paper (HA) adds sparkle to the middle of the card.
I hope you will join our sketch challenge this week, and add your
creations to our gallery! This challenge will end at 3:00 EDT time on
Monday, November 8th. Be sure to take a peek at the gorgeous cards my teammates have made on the FMS blog!
