Thankful Cheer — FMS208

It’s that time again — another new sketch challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches.  And this week my sweet Floridian friend, Cindy Hall, is our hostess.  Look at what fun she has for us:

I took a few liberties with this sketch since I didn’t even use one rectangle for the focal images.  But I tried to stay true to the rest of the sketch.  Even though it’s 95 sweltering degrees here in Texas, I pulled out some Fall papers and stamps.

Thankful CheerI started with a Soft Suede card base and misted a mixture of Old Olive ink and rubbing alcohol onto a sheet of Into the Woods dsp.  I added a strip of Tangelo Twist card stock and some Linen Thread and a Classy Designer Button.

For the sentiment panel, I selectively stamped the top and bottom branches framing the Expressions Natural Element “thanks” from two different stamps from the Thankful Forest Friends set.  I paper pierced the panel after cutting it out with a Lots of Labels framelit.

The leaf was cut out of Gold Glimmer Paper using a Leaflets framelit die, and the acorn was stamped with the Cheer All Year stamp set.  I set the leaf and acorn on some looped Gold Metallic Thread.

Lots of products and lots of fun.

Thankful Cheer Close UpWe hope you’ll join us and make your own creation using the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week.  The design team has some great inspiration for you  — you can see we all did different things with this sketch.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!
