Freshly Made Sketches 115

Wednesday, December 4, 2013

There's a fabulous new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches designed by the talented Jen Timko.  At this late date I am sadly in need of Christmas cards but I'm also in need of Christmas gift tags and when I saw the sketch a perfect layout for a gift tag is what I saw.

I spent a bit of time hemming and hawing over colors before I dug into my stash of DSP and chose Ski Slope for an accent primarily because I love the combo of Chocolate Chip and Baja Breeze.  I added some die cut snowflakes a couple of festive Christmas-y stamps and I was done.  One more tag to cross off my to-do list!

We've got some news over at Freshly Made Sketches this week.  The super talented and very lovely Cindy Lovell is joining us on the design team so be sure to show her some love!

Thanks for stopping by!

Jen your tag is fantastic! I have lots of tags but I am so short of Christmas cards. Today is mass production day I think! The snowflake looks fantastic!

What a treat! I have a hoard of Baja Breeze cardstock... and your sweetest-ever tag has really inspired me to pull it out! Love the bit of red, but your whole composition is stunning. I hope you don't mind if I pin this. Wow!! Love this tag!!! Bev
