Freshly Made Sketches: Joyful, Merry, Blessed

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

Joyful. Merry. Blessed.

The flowers and greenery are a beautiful set of dies from The Stamp Market. I love that it can be elegant but just a bit quirky too. Then I really wanted to use that sentiment from Penny Black so I moved the sketch around a bit to accommodate it. In this case, I was making the card for someone specific so I also added a tapestry looking background to give it a classic look. 

Joyful. Merry. Blessed.

This is the last sketch of the year for Freshly Made Sketches. I have a few other posts scheduled over the next few weeks, but mostly it's going to be quiet here.  It's not so much that I need a break from making cards, but I do need to clean up the chaos that has occurred in my craft room during the rush of the Christmas season!  

My youngest son gets home tomorrow.  Then this weekend we are heading north to where my oldest son lives to do a few days of no-holds-barred food and breweries.  (He lives in Fort Collins, CO - a fabulous town for both food and drink!)  Even my husband has promised not to cringe when drinks are ordered (he hates paying the prices for restaurant meals and he gets even more annoyed when he has to pay for drinks).  But this is literally going to be our Christmas present for all of us - the "ho-holds-barred" part being the important part. 

If you can find time in your busy holiday - I hope you play along with us at Freshly Made Sketches. And I'll see you next year!
