Amazing! FMS280






I am excited to be hosting this week at Freshly Made Sketches.  When it is my turn to host I make an effort to visit all of your sites to see what you all have created with my sketch.  And the sentiment on my card today sums up perfectly what I think  -  you are all amazing!  Creativity abounds in our galleries for sure! 

Something else I find amazing is how Emma and Gram are such pals!  When we visit they love to look at family pictures together.  Gram's memory is fading and she needs help sometimes remembering people in the photos so Emma helps her out.  Total sweetness.....

                                                       





I used the sets Cups and Succulents (SSS) and You (SSS) for my plant and sentiment.  There is a hint of Tumbled Glass Distress Ink brushed on in the background and Copic markers were used for coloring. The cardstock is Neenah Solar White and SU! Wild Wasabi.

Your cards always amaze me! Love the colors you used today and the stitched frame sets ithose succulents off perfectly. That sentiment is great too and so are Emma and Gram!

The red-orange transition in the tea cup and the reddish brown on pot contract very well with the green plants! Awesome!

I love how you've framed this pretty image, and I love the soft touch of that beautiful blue in the background. This is a fun sketch and I've loved seeing how everyone is using it so differently.

Every time I see your photos of Emma and Gram together I marvel at how lucky they are. And how lucky you are to see them together :) Your sketch is fabulous this week. I love how those shapes can be about whatever strikes our fancy. Your choice of plants-that-like-to-hold-water is pretty cool! lolol

What a fabulous card! The flowers truly appear to be growing out of the pot and cup, and I do love how you did the sentiment with one word cut out.
