100 Sketches! FMS100


There is a big celebration going on at Freshly Made Sketches this week in honor of our 100th challenge! Besides a wonderful sketch, there are giveaways and extra inspiration from past designers!  It has been so much fun designing with this team for the past 100 weeks and I am looking forward to the next 100!  

I used Smoky Slate and Crushed Curry together on my card today.  And I am thinking Smoky Slate could be my favorite new color - it definitely resembles my hair color these days. My hair has finally grown out and is all natural - time for a new profile picture!  And yes I am all gray but it's much more fun to say that my hair is Smoky Slate............might have to get a Crushed Curry sweater for the fall!

Thought you might like to see the very first card I designed for Freshly Made Sketches....way back when.....

                            

Our 100th sketch is actually a flashback to our very first sketch!  Hope you join us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

Brilliant idea to use the coffee cup and the yellow and gray are terrific together. Thanks for the wonderful inspiration.

I definitely like the newer version butter but your original one was still cute

Perfect card for a happy couple! I think this is my new favorite color combo. And I'm definitely all over calling my gray hair smoky slate. That makes it sound Hollywood sexy!

I love your first FMS card! I remember it! I really love the creativity in this week's card. Very clever (again!). What a great idea for a fun wedding or anniversary card! I also love that you are a beautiful and confident woman who is embracing her Smoky Slate hair color!

Amy O said...

Ok -- this is so clever and fun! I love it! Smoky Slate does sound like a Clairol color too.

Narelle Farrugia said...

You are the cleverest stamper out there - love how you've made all of these stamps and images look like they're meant to go together! Love the colour combo too!

Linda Suarez said...

I love this! What a great card for an anniversary! And those two colors are the perfect blend too.

Wow! Congrats on 100 sketches for FMS! That's awesome! Your coffe card is brilliant and has gone right into my CASE file. And how fun to look back at your first FMS card - that button apple is adorable!

And I think Smokey Slate is an awesome way to describe your hair - so classy!
