Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #54

Happy Wednesday!  I survived my first shift in the kindergarten room!  The class was good and I was tougher than I needed to be just so there weren't any sandwiches flying around!  The teacher has a class of 19 and 13 of them were boys!  Not sure who balanced that class!!!  We'll see how it goes on Thursday and Friday!

Wednesday's also mean a new challenge at Freshly Made Sketches!  This week the fabulous Jennifer Timko brings us a great sketch which I deviated from a little (sorry Jen!).  Jen's sketch is for a square card but I have this "thing" against square cards.  Don't ask....I'm not really sure what it is.  Same thing I feel towards circles!!!

I want to get my Christmas cards done ahead of time and it looks like they'll all be different this year!  I really do love the little Festival of Prints DSP pack.  It's so handy and I can see using it for way more than Christmas cards!  The Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder is one of my favourites.  I love it's look both for Christmas and "regular" cards!

Hop on over to the FMS blog and check out the other fantastic cards the design team has come up with!
