Freshly Made Sketches 307!

Wednesday, September 27, 2017

Summer has made a comeback around here and I am loving it!  It's been in the 80s for the last few days and I am thoroughly enjoying this beautiful weather.  But it's the end of September and I know it won't last.  Soon the sweaters and boots will come out of the closet so I've got to enjoy this while I can.

I am also thoroughly enjoying our new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is Jen Timko and what a cool sketch she's given us this week.

Sometimes when I see circles like this it puts me in mind of a shaker card.  Of course, since the latest challenge at CAS-ual Fridays is for shakers there might have been a bit of subliminal messaging going on!  I grabbed some sequins in the colors or fall and created my card around them.

This was went together surprisingly easily!  I love when that happens.  Our amazing Freshly Made Sketches design team has put together some great cards with this sketch so make sure you check them out.  I hope you can join us in the gallery!

Fantastic shaker! and I really like the color combo! Colder weather is a comin' like it or not : ) We have gotten a cold snap here in South Dakota as opposed to the warmth so many across the country have been enjoying.

Have a warm and wonderful day!

Love that you made a shaker for the sketch Jen, this is so cute! We've been in the low 90s since last week. This is wacky!!

I totally had a shaker in mind when I designed this (and then went a different direction). Love that you made this cute one! Super sentiment....made for the sketch!
