Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #151

Welcome to another Wednesday!  We are on vacation right now and currently enjoying the sand and surf in Myrtle Beach!  Since I'm pre-writing this post I'm going to go out on a limb and assume we are having a fabulous vacation!

We have a great new sketch today courtesy of Kim Singdahlsen.  This is Kim's last week with us at Freshly Made Sketches!  We have loved seeing her fabulous cards over the last four weeks and she leaves us today with an amazing sketch!

As the weather here in Burlington gets colder and fall approaches, I feel the need to make some Thanksgiving cards!  I must say that fall cards are my favourite ones to make!  I had some old DSP stashed in my craft room and decided to haul it out.  Sadly I can't remember the name.  Surprising?  Not so much, I know!  I paired up some Autumn Wooden Elements (from the new Holiday Catalogue).  I used the woodgrain embossing folder to add a little more texture!

Cardstock: Early Espresso, Very Vanilla
DSP: I can't remember....
Stamps: And Many More
Other: Autumn Wooden Elements, Woodgrain Embossing Folder, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by!  

Please hop on over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog to check out the amazing cards the design team has created for you!  Don't forget to leave Kim some love and thank her for her great sketch and amazing contributions to our team!

Have a fabulous day!
