Freshly Made Sketches Hugs

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


I LOVE her creativity.  I might have thought to layer up three circles - but not necessarily off-kilter like this with a sentiment across it.  FUN!!

Instead of circle, I went with hearts because I have need of a "hugs" card!

FMS Hugs

I found some sweet and simple paper to use in my layers.  I did slightly pop each layer for interest. And I added a sprinkling of flowers around the "hugs".

I don't have much time to chatter.  My oldest son is home from college and has somehow not managed to get a summer job.  I'm not happy about his lack of employment.  So I figure for the privilege of room and board, phone, health insurance, etc. - he's going to work for me!!  I'm having him re-paint all of the kitchen cabinets - inside and out.  I tried about a dozen colored paint samples on the cabinets before I went an entirely different direction with white cabinets and golden walls (thus requiring even more painting since I added painting the walls!)  He was already frustrated with me, then I sent him off the deep-end when I decided to leave a few cabinet doors off for open shelving with an accent paint in the back (which he had already painted white!!)  So I think I had better get myself off to Home Depot to pick out the accent paint.

Hope to see you playing along!

Oh, I love this, Kim! The colors and hearts are perfect for a hugs card. It sounds like you might come out ahead by your son's lack of a summer job. And next summer he'll have painting experience to put on his resume. :)

This is so cute!! I LOVE the layering of the hearts and the teeny tiny flowers. GREAT take on the sketch!!

It's such a nice twist to see the concentric circles go from largest to smallest and I think popping up each layer only adds to the interest - what a great idea! I hope your kitchen cabinets turn out exactly how you want them. Good luck!
