Freshly Made Sketches: Warm Thoughts

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

It was a cold and rainy weekend as I was working on this.  Since my husband refuses to turn the furnace on until November (if I'm lucky) and I woke up to a 53°F house - the fireplace was on much of the weekend also.  I hate to admit it - but it was wonderful!!  Fall weather has begun and I adore fall.  So clearly I was going to go for a fall focus for my card.

FMS Warm Thoughts

I love the crisp weather and the frost on the bright fall leaves - so I representing that on my fall cards with bright colors on white.  The leaf was from a panel I did when I got my first Distress Oxides.  I've kept every practice panel just in case they come in handy - and this one did!  I played around with some right autumn plaids for the my background strip but I ended up keeping it neutral too.

It's truly a fun sketch - I hope to see you playing along!

  1. This is CAS perfection Kim! Love the strip of woodgrain paper and the pretty pop of orange from your leaf!

  2. Your fall leaf is a shining star on the crisp, bright white stage you've designed! Gorgeous. The fact it's a maple leaf makes my Canadian heart smile!

  3. I am ready for fall.....we have been having a crazy heat wave! This is that leaf!
