It's Thanksgiving Eve here in the US. Visions of turkey are dancing in my head. How about you? Thanksgiving is probably my most favorite of holidays primarily because as the dinner is cooking the house is filled with the most delicious scents. I do love turkey, gravy, stuffing, and mashed potato! That's a pretty weird reason to love a holiday but there you have it!
Anyway on to our latest challenge at Freshly Made Sketches. This week our hostess is the talented Karren who has given us one of those classic sketches that will be right up your creative alley, I'm sure.
The inspiration photo at Fusion gave me the idea for the colors for this card and the CAS Christmas challenge at The Paper Players gave me the idea to do another Christmas card. This is the fourth week in a row that I've made a Christmas card for Freshly Made Sketches and I sincerely hope you're not sick of seeing them! It's getting to be crunch time in the Christmas card department so every card counts!
By the way I used Liquid Pearls for the little dots on my wreath. Liquid Pearls! Talk about digging up some old stuff in the stash! I stamped the little berry trios in white first but white ink usually fades as it dries and I really wanted those berries to look good so I went over them with the Liquid Pearls. I also went over the die cut sentiment with Wink of Stella so this has got some sparkle in real life!
To all my American friends I send a heartfelt "happy thanksgiving" to you and your family. Rest up after your dinner because the Christmas craziness is only just beginning!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have some time to hop on over to Freshly Made Sketches to check out our challenge for this week as well as the inspiration from the design team. We hope to see you in the gallery!
