It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches
! This week's sketch we have a sketch by Linda
I have been in a bit of a panic over Christmas cards. I've never waited until July before. It's not so much that I send that many. My issue is that my favorite cardmaking seasons are autumn and Christmas. So I generally have a big jump on Christmas cards in the spring and summer so I can focus on autumn when it arrives. Somehow it's wrong to get a jump on autumn in the spring and summer, but it's OK to do Christmas. Yeah - I know - it's all a bit obsessive.
Anyway, I saw snowflakes in those circles.
I struggle with photographing foil or glitter. The card is actually quite a bit lighter and brighter than the above photo shows.
Also a shout-out to Color Throwdown
. A few weeks ago they had their 500th challenge (a big congrats!) but I have to admit, I first wrinkled my nose at the colors. But then I saw the design team inspiration - and then I saw what so many of you made - and I decided it was a fabulous color combo. This particular challenge is over, but I did want to give them the credit for my colors!
I hope to see you playing along with us this week at Freshly Made Sketches.
