Autumn Temperatures can Come — FMS99

Well, look at that!  We’re on sketch #99 at Freshly Made Sketches this week, and the fantabulous  (she deserves her own superlative) Rita Wright has a fun sketch for us this week:

Now I will have to say that this one had me stumped for quite a while.  I just didn’t know what to put in those circles.  I finally decided that they didn’t have to be circles and that I should use hexagons.  And then I decided to use little favorites in the negatives of the punched hexagons.

Column of Three -- FMS99I pulled out some of the new Sweater Weather dsp because I LOVE Fall colors and I’ve been dying to use it.  The title of this dsp just made me laugh out loud because I can’t even imagine wearing a sweater — it has been so HOT here the past three weeks.  Though I’m not ready for the kids to go back to school, I am ready for some Autumn temperatures.

I hope you can make time to join us with this challenge.  Go see what the other designers made at the Freshly Made Sketches site— you’ll see a wide variety of incredible projects this week.  And make sure you come back next week for our 100th sketch milestone! There will definitely be a few fun surprises — that’s all I’m saying!

  1. Amy, you are the queen of the perfectly placed “random” rhinestones, pearls, flowers, etc. I am so much the opposite of that, so I really admire your ability to do it so masterfully! Lovely card!

  2. Isn’t Texas still ridiculous with this heat?! It’s miserable. I can’t wait for some cooler sweater weather. Maybe for Christmas? lol I love your fall colors and the negatives of the hexagons are perfect!

  3. Oh, now this is fabulous!!!! I love Sweater Weather too!!! I love what you’ve done with the hexagons and love those random pearls! Fun layers! Can you send some of your Texas heat up to us?! It was 53 degrees here this morning…brrrr…..

  4. I love your very clever use of the sketch, Amy. Beautiful design and details. I also enjoyed the stroll through your fabulous Artisan designs. Absolutely stunning!
