Freshly Made Sketches: Hello

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Jen Brum and here’s what I did with it.

FMS: Hello

This is the simplest card but it made me happy to make!  I looked at a variety of frames but when I saw this speech bubble - I knew it was it.  Then I was thinking of sentiment and when I remembered this "hello" with the long tail to follow the sketch, I got a little giddy.  Finally I toyed briefly with a little critter or something in the bottom right, but a bright and cheerful rainbow of color called my name!  And when I had gems that matched some of the was a card that was meant to be!!!  Don't get me wrong - it's no work of art - but I had a wonderful time making it and I definitely hope it brightens a friend's day.  (Although the friend I was thinking of while I was working on it reads my blog - you might see it in your mailbox friend!)

In many areas, life is easing a bit - but some are still totally locked down.  A cheerful hello or hugs or thinking of you card is a wonderful surprise in friends' and family's mailboxes.  Or the local nursing home. Or first responders.  There are so many needs and we have a great hobby to add a bright moment in someone's day.

I hope to see you playing along with us this week at Freshly Made Sketches.
