I love this week of the year! The kids get the whole week off from school and this year my husband has been able to take the week off from work, so we are getting lots of family time. We don’t have much planned — a little cooking and baking, going to see a couple of movies, a little shopping, and visiting some family. I love it!
Another thing I love is this week’s sketch by the oh-so-talented-and-lovely Jen Brum at Freshly Made Sketches. She has such a good one for us this week:
I wanted to make one more Thanksgiving/Fall themed card because the Christmas train is coming in a hurry. I pulled out the Seasonally Scattered set and stamped it with Cajun Craze ink on a strip of Very Vanilla card stock. I then layered some burlap ribbon and Natural 5/8″ Chevron Ribbon over the stamped image.
I stamped the sentiment from the For All Things stamp set over the banner image from the same set. Colors used were Crushed Curry and Bermuda Bay. This card came together pretty quickly. I will use it to send to my MIL to thank her for her preparations for our Thanksgiving dinner.
We hope you’ll be able to join us and make your own card using this sketch. We love to see your creations in the gallery. You can check out what the design team made at the Freshly Made Sketches site for some inspiration.
Enjoy your Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!

Well, thanks a lot, friend. You just made me kick myself again for not buying the Seasonally Scattered set. This card is divine! Really, really love the colors, layers of burlap and the linen thread. Great look!
Love this Amy! The rustic feel you’ve given your card with the colours and texture is a lovely touch!
