Freshly Made Sketches: Tidings of Joy

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Narelle.


Tomorrow is December 1st.  I go back and forth as to whether that's a good thing or not.  I'm not a huge fan of the month of December but I am a HUGE fan of Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.  So when December hits, I have a few more weeks to survive before getting to the most wonderful evening and day of the year.  Also, I'm not as behind on Christmas cards as I've been in the past - but I'm not on top of it either.  So there was no doubt that this would be a Christmas card!

FMS Tidings of Comfort

Just like last week, I ignored the circle (sorry, Narelle!)  I do like circles, but when inspiration hits, it's better for me not to ignore it!  I found these trees from a few years back in my unused stash - and the Joy is brand new.  Seemed like a good combo.  I used the "joy" as the horizontal strip with my sentiment offset which I never would have done without the inspiration of the sketch - LOVE it!  Thank you Narelle!

I hope to see you all playing along this week.  The gallery is always amazing - I am in awe each week as to the variety of cards that come out of the same "fresh" sketch.
