Freshly Made Sketches 155

Wednesday, September 24, 2014

This week at Freshly Made Sketches our hostess Karren has given us a sketch with one of my favorite things:  a tag!  Of course, you don't need to use a tag on your card when you play along, but I jumped at the chance!



Karren lives in New Zealand where spring is coming up all over, but where I live it's all about fall.  So when I saw the inspiration photo at Viva La Verve had some sunflowers in it that's the direction I went with my card.  And I've made another thank you card because I always need lots of these at the end of the year.  Where I work we get quite a few customers who give us gifts at Christmas time and I always donate the thank you cards to be sent to them.  So every January I'm wiped out of cards.  This year I thought I'd be smart and make lots of them so I'd be ready!  So far so good!



Our always amazing Freshly Made Sketches design team have created some beauties for you to see!  Stop by and check them out.  We hope to see you in the gallery!
