Freshly Made Sketches 211

Wednesday, November 4, 2015

Welcome to Wednesday and another new sketch from your friends at Freshly Made Sketches!  This week our designer comes from halfway around the world from me!  It's Karren from New Zealand of course!  She's designed a great sketch for you this week and when you stop by her blog be prepared - she's an enabler of the first order.  Her techniques make you want to sign up for tutorials and her supplies might make you want to bust your crafting budget!  But don't be afraid there's lots of inspiration there too!

I pretty much followed the sketch exactly. My only regret is that I wish I had stamped the sentiment in a dark ink so that it showed up better.  It looks better in real life but it's really difficult to see here.  In case you're wondering it says "thank you!"

The challenge this week at The Paper Players is all about autumn and thanks so I'll be adding this over there as well.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to pop on over to Freshly Made Sketches for loads of inspiration from our design team.  I hope we get to see you in the gallery this week!

I'm totally baffled where this enabler label has come from ;) (from one enabler to another!). I love what you've done with the sketch - the colors look so good together - even the label!

Beautiful Fall thank you card, Jen. The kraft base really shows off your design well. Love that bit of yellow you've popped into this card. It's so soft and pretty. Another fantastic card....but then, whenever I stop here, I'm always delighted! Great card. Bev

Beautiful fall card Jen! I love that leaf and the rich colours! It looks so warm and cozy! I also think you're an enabler as much as Karren!!! Don't act so innocent!!!!!
