Hey there, peeps!  I’ve got a special post today---it’s the 100th Freshly Made Sketches sketch and they’ve asked all the guest designers to participate!!  You can see the DT’s take on the sketch (which happens to be their very first one!) and check out the goodies they’ll be giving away!  Woohoo!  So here’s the sketch:


And here’s my card, using some new goodies from the Holiday Mini:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings FMS100 Truly Grateful

It’s been a while since I have colored in an image, and it felt good!  This is an easy image to color…..just used my markers…..and I added a little shadow around the image with a Sahara Sand marker.


I did a little sponging around the edges with Sahara Sand as well, and trimmed some burlap ribbon to fit my horizontal panel, fringed the edges and sewed it on:


Finally, I thought the woodgrain panel looked a little plain, so I made a little banner from another piece of Sweater Weather and a Candy Dot for a little added interest:


I love this Sweater Weather DP!  I hope you’ll play along with the Freshly Made Sketches team and help them celebrate 100 sketches!!!
