Freshly Made Sketches: A Wonderful Day

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Narelle.  This is the first sketch from Freshly Made Sketches in September - September being my definition of autumn. I understand the official start of fall is in about three weeks but I grew up in a town with a tourist-based summer economy and when September arrived, the tourists stopped coming and it was fall!!  Plus I'm feeling fall because after record-breaking heat this summer, this past weekend was cooler and a bit rainy. I went to bed Saturday evening with windows open and the attic fan on.  Imagine my surprise when we woke up to 42 degrees outside.  I didn't go full-on autumn with colorful leaves on my card - but it definitely is a fall color scheme.

FMS Wonderful Day

I blame my teammate Linda Callahan for the sentiment on this card.  When I saw it on her card, I purchased it immediately!!  Actually I thank her because it's a very unique look.  Plus The Ton has sets like this for birthdays, thank yous and Christmas.  I got the general one, but now that I have worked with it and see it on my own card - I'm going back for more!!

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

  2. Gorgeous take on this sketch, Kim! Autumn is my favorite season!!! And those sentiment sets from The Ton have been on my wish list :) They look so amazing!!!

  3. We both were seeing butterflies this week! I love your fall colors and especially the two color sentiment, Kim. Those sentiments are definitely calling to me . . .

  4. Kim, I love this card with the open butterfly!

  5. Brrrr, I'm not ready for 42 degrees yet! Your pretty card, on the other hand, I'll take any day!

  6. Oh, I love these Fall colors! And I agree on the sentiment -- we are so good at enabling each other!

  7. Nice of you to pass on that enabling! Not sure how I missed Linda's but my first thought was "I need that". Love this!

  8. I don't need those stamps, I don't need those stamps, I don't need those stamps...This card is just fabulous Kim! I love the fall'ish colours! Those sequins are soooo pretty! Fall colours warm my heart!

  9. This is such a wonderful take on the sketch with the pretty dsp, butterfly and sparkly gemstones! Now I need to go check out those sentiments too - I love this one!
