Celebrating 200! FMS200



 


Who knew turning 200 could be such fun?  200 sketches that is! Freshly Made Sketches is celebrating in a big way!  We have an amazing list of sponsors who have donated prizes to hand out to lucky members of our gallery! Design team members from many stamp companies have already posted to our gallery so there is lots of inspiration for you this week! I have been so fortunate to be part of this amazing design team since Lesley Croghan created it.....200 sketches ago!

Our sketch is wide open this week making it super easy for everyone to play along! I flipped it putting the bigger rectangle on top.  I used the new SU set Among the Branches and the sky line from Calling All Heroes.  The bats and sentiment are from last year's wonderful set Holiday Home.



                                               



I do hope you will join in the fun this week!  You just might win a prize from one of our terrific sponsors!  




And just in case you were wondering the "Girl Flower" did a great job at the wedding!



That was a mighty long walk across the veranda for a not yet three year old!

Congrats on making to to 200!! I love this card! I don't make many Halloween cards but this one I may have to try to case this. The skyline is one of my favorite stamps to use! (I think I used it on the only other card I've ever entered on FMS!) :) thanks for stopping by my blog!
