Once in a Blue Moon......FMS198





If I could send a thank you card to Mother Nature I would already have this card in the mail!  We did some Blue Moon Boatin' this week and it was spectacular!







Something else that only happens once in a blue moon will be happening soon at Freshly Made Sketches. We will celebrate our 200th sketch in grand style........we have some amazing sponsors lined up........plan to get sketchy with us!





The fabulous Cindy Lovell designed a sweet sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  I used Schoolhouse DSP and a sentiment from Tin of Cards on my thank you card - perfect for a teacher!  As a retired teacher I can tell you that I always appreciated a hand written note - especially from a student!

Such a fun and creative use of the sketch. LOVE the flower on top of the layers. The stitching on the layers and the stitched alphabet is a great combo!
