Splendid Thoughts — FMS545

For those who haven’t melted in this crazy heat yet, we have a new sketch for you over at Freshly Made Sketches. In North Texas, we are doing our best to see how many days we can break the 100 degrees mark. So far, we have had 22 days, and it isn’t even August yet. The record was set in 2011, when we had a whopping 71 days over 100 degrees. Please, Lord, may we not come close to breaking that record. So far, we are only one day behind that year at this point in the summer.

Our hostess this week, Narelle Farrugia, is certainly not experiencing the same weather problems since she is currently enjoying Winter as she lives in Australia. She has a fun sketch for us. Take a look:

I thought the new Splendid Thoughts bundle would work well with this sketch as there are some long, slender images in the set that would work well with this orientation,

I stamped the images three times and cut them out with the coordinating dies. The little bees were also stamped and cut using the same bundle.

I cut out some white rectangles using the Deckled Rectangles Dies, and placed the images and die-cut leaves on them. The rectangles were placed on a Pool Party Card from the current Sale-a-Bration offering, which I believe is already sold out.

The sentiment is from the Charming Sentiments bundle. I added some Opal Rounds and baker’s twine as embellishments.

We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch! Meanwhile, be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration!

Enjoy your Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I just got this set! I love the beautiful card you created with it! And that heat would kill me! We have had two days of 90 and I’m done!

  2. Fabulous card! These images have such an arty look to them. And you might be sweltering but we’re flooding – we had more rain today (in one day) than the average for the whole month of July, Weather patterns are extreme world wide!
