Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #500!!!!


Hello and welcome to our 500th sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!  I can't believe we're at 500!!!  I kinda think this is a pretty good reason to celebrate!  You definitely need to head to the blog and check out the details on what's going on!  There are prizes to be won people!  You will not want to miss out on this celebration!  

Our hostess this week is the amazing Linda Callahan!  She has a fabulous sketch for us on this momentous occasion!  You will definitely want to head over to her blog to check out her slew of incredible cards!  


I feel like fall has arrived here in Alberta.  I am so tempted to get out my pumpkin collection just so I can enjoy it a whole lot longer than normal!  The temperature has dropped here considerably and while Ontario is getting super hot and super humid weather, we are getting cooler, more fall'ish temperatures!  Call me crazy but I could live with these temperatures all year round!  I don't miss the extreme heat or humidity!

Anyhow, I love the new Intricate Leaves dies from Stampin Up!  I love the Harvest Meadow DSP and decided it would be perfect to go with my fall leaves.  As a side note, there are no "colourful" leaves in Alberta.  I am going to miss that part of fall!!

Supplies:
Cardstock: Basic White, Cajun Craze, Bumble Bee, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Soft Succulent
DSP: Harvest Meadow
Stamps: Beautiful Autumn
Ink: Early Espresso
Other: Intricate Leaves Dies, Stitched So Sweetly Dies, Dainty Diamonds Embossing Folder, Twine, Dimensionals

I hope you will join our celebratory challenge this week!  All winners will be picked at random so everyone has a chance to win!  

Please head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and read through all of the details.  We can't wait to see what you come up with!

Have an amazing day!

Jen

  3. I love how the pattern from the embossing folder coordinates with the gorgeous dsp. This pretty card makes me long for Fall! Unfortunately we're in the dog days of Summer here and still a good two months away from my favorite season. I hope you enjoy all of the seasons in your new home!
