Starting the New Year Fresh!

Hello Everyone!

I am so excited to share with you that I am now part of one of my all time favorite challenge blogs, Freshly Made Sketches!  This is one of Lesley Croghan's babies and I have been playing along since the very beginning.  Looking for a sketch?  Look no further than FMS!

Here is your first sketch of 2019~

I made 3 versions of the sketch before I settled on the above card.  I think I like best it because it was made with love.  I young teacher I work with just adopted to small boys over the holidays.  I thought these adorable critters from Mama Elephant would be perfect for the new family!
I ended up using colors from the MFT color challenge this week; I just love this combo and want to make more using these  colors!  I used the adorable Animal Parade stamp set and colored with Copics.  The background panel was die cut with MFT's Dienamics Stitched Rectangle Scalloped Edge Frames.  I pulled the word 'adoption' from a Lawn Fawn set.
That's it for me!  Now it is your turn!

Hope to see you in the FMS gallery!
