Festive Farmhouse — FMS368

With Christmas right around the corner, we have one last sketch at Freshly Made Sketches for you in 2018.  Our hostess this week is a newly crowned Artisan Design Team winner and our friend from down under, Narelle Faruggia.  Take a peek at this fun sketch:

Since I still hadn’t made a card with the cute farmhouse in the Farmhouse Christmas set, I knew I wanted to make it work with the sketch somehow.  Hopefully you can use your imagination and see that the house represents the oval in the sketch.

I sponged a couple of pieces of shimmery card stock with Balmy Blue and Crumb Cake inks to create the two background panels.  I colored the trees and house with my markers.

This was a fun card to make as it’s so fun playing with all of the pieces to create a scene.  This card reminds me of Christmas at my Grandma & Grandpa’s farmhouse.  I miss them and spending time on their farm.  Those are good memories.

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

Since I most likely won’t get another card posted before Christmas, I want to wish you a wonderful Christmas.  I hope you get to spend it with those you love most and are able to relax and enjoy it amidst all of the busyness that the season brings.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas Truck — FMS364

It’s time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and this week our hostess is our favorite Rocky Mountain card maker extraordinaire, Kim Singdahlsen.  Take a look at this fun sketch:

Since I hadn’t used the Farmhouse Christmas set yet, I decided to make it work with this sketch.  I love the sweet pickup truck and thought it could fit in the circle shape, while some festive plaid paper could take up the square.

The card base was embossed with the Woodland embossing folder.  A little bit of ribbon and a button with twine were added as embellishments.

We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch.  We love to see what you create!  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!
