It’s a special day at Freshly Made Sketches today! Today we’re celebrating our 100th sketch, and we have some fun things going on over at the site so be sure to go check it out. As part of the festivities, we thought it would be fun to bring back our very first sketch for the challenge this week:
A fun little fact about this sketch is that the super talented Cindy Hall was selected as the Queen of Clean for Sketch #1, and now she’s on the design team.
I decided to use some of my Fall goodies for this card. They’ve just been sitting here staring at me for the past three weeks and I’m finding it hard to get motivated to use them when it’s still 90+ degrees outside.
I went a little crazy with the Gold Glow Smooch Spritz, which is sadly now retired, but I could never get it quite where I wanted it so I kept trying again. And before I knew it, I thought I probably shouldn’t have done that. Oh, well!
One fun new thing I used on this card is the new Small Scallop Stampin’ Trimmer Rotary Cutting Blade. It’s peeking out from under the chevron ribbon. I love this new tool, and I can’t wait to play with it more and the other blades as well. It is so easy to use!
Make sure you go by and check out the Freshly Made Sketches site. There are some surprises over there — including guest designers from the past and some prizes.
Enjoy your Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!
