Special Days.......FMS269





I am excited to host the first sketch of 2017 at Freshly Made Sketches and look forward to another year of great designs! It feels good to get back into my craft room after a break for the holidays. We had lots of snow, family time and adventures these past two weeks - everything from Disney on Ice to sharing the stomach bug! Only Gram escaped it but she did take a fall and ended up in the ER for x-rays.  When the doctor asked her what hurt she replied - "Everything! I'm 91!"  

No broken bones just a bump on her elbow so we were out the door quickly.....which meant we had time to stop at McDonald's for large fries and a coffee - no stomach bug for Gram!


My sketch is wide open this week - hope you play along! I love to visit your galleries!

Great sketch! Love the dragonflies with the DSP you chose. Looks like the perfect spot for them! Stay well and I'm glad Gram was a-okay...at 91!

That's beautiful Linda! Love the colors and that designer paper is perfect with your design. Glad to hear that you all made it through the holidays with only one trip to the ER. We had the stomach bug and a really bad cold "shared" with us over the holidays too...thank goodness we're all on the mend here too! :)

I am loving that colorful DSP along with the dragonflies. What a beauty this is. And I'm glad to hear that Gram is ok. That must have been scary but at least she kept her sense of humor!
