Freshly Made Sketches: Happy Harvest

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

I am definitely feeling autumn today.  Two weeks ago, Colorado went from summer to winter in just 36-hours going from 83 to 13 degrees - no kidding!  Colorado weather is nothing if not unpredictable and within two days we moved from winter back to gorgeous autumn temperatures.  But the extreme temperature is going to make us miss the changing leaves.  Our trees were just starting to change to their glorious fall colors when the freezing cold hit - and they went instantly to brown.  The temperature is cool and brisk as I am making this card and I can hear the leaves in the breeze - but I'm going to have to get my fall colors through my cardmaking!!

FMS Happy Harvest

I just recently got this Autumn Wreath from Pretty Pink Posh.  It's been on my wishlist forever.  I love its fresh and open look.  I know they also have a Spring Wreath and their recent release came out with Winter Wreath - I'm not going to wait so long to get that one.  The sentiment in the wreath set wasn't skinny enough so I pulled out Mini Strips - Harvest from Taylored Expressions.

I love sketches that are open to so many ideas and that includes a skinny strip for all of my skinny sentiments!  I hope to see you playing along with us this week!
