Freshly Made Sketches: Just Saying Hello

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

1.13.21 FMS

I used a background and a leaf die by Memory Box. I cut the leaf out a new paper pad called Ink Drops because I love the look but don't want to try it on my own! A rich green background and a pretty sentiment - and it was done!

1.13.21 FMS Side

My college kids are all back at their schools.  I wonder how long it will last? My oldest loves to learn and it's OK with him if it's online. He has an apartment so he sticks close to his school. My youngest is all about the college experience and sports so he is crushed when it closes. He's on campus so gets sent home. He came home middle of November and just went back.  He's in Illinois which seems a bit stricter than Colorado. I am crossing all my fingers and toes that he gets his college experience and spring sports season this year because he did not as a freshman.  OK - I have to admit - I also enjoy coming home after work to peace and quiet as opposed to the demands of a child who is typically energetic and social but felt cooped up and alone all day. 

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

  1. Oh Memory Box has the most amazing dies. You have showcased the leaves beautifully with those gorgeous colors!

  2. I love the leaf pattern repeated in the background! This is lovely! Such a hard time for kids and school no matter what the age! I would never be able to adjust to online learning.....a five minute card video is all I can handle!

  3. That paper is gorgeous, Kim, and so perfect for that leaf die. I love this!

  4. I love those pretty leaves and that pierced background is fabulous! I hope all of our college kids have a good college experience this semester and get to stay at school!

  5. What a beautiful card Kim! I love the texture of the background and that leaf diecut is just stunning! Very elegant indeed!

  6. Another very pretty card from you, Kim. This foliage die cut is gorgeous, it is so delicate and elegant.
