Nothing Could Be Finer.........FMS151





Like the song says......Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina........

                                                 


Having a wonderful week and enjoying glorious summer weather here in the Outer Banks.  No sign of fall or pumpkins anywhere down here.  But it was fun making a pumpkin card for this week's sketch using the new set Fall Fest before we left NY and headed south.  It has been a great trip with our whole family and we have three more days left..... :)

The ocean waves have been wild due to an off shore hurricane but the pool has been just fine - Emma agrees!





Our guest designer this month - and one of my all time favorite designers - Kim Singdahlsen designed our sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

I love it! This reminds me of a crisp Fall day! The mesh piece is awesome and so are all the dies. Glad you're enjoying your bacau and the surf's not stopping you! Who could resist that Emma?!

What I wouldn't give to be lounging on a beach right now! I'm not ready for pumpkins yet, although the coffee shop I stop at on my way to work has already put out the pumpkin spice coffee. Too early! I'd much rather look at the pretty pumpkins on your card! Is that cheese cloth? Whatever it is, it's pretty fabulous!

Those pumpkins look fabulous against all of that crisp, clean white space. And I love the cool texture you've added. The beach sounds wonderful -- especially listening to the sound of the surf. Ahhh! Enjoy!

I love this super clean and bright fall card! The gauze is such a great element, yet it doesn't compete with the focal point. Very cool!
