Freshly Made Sketches #248

FMS248 is a sketch by Linda, who has been so sweet to me, both with comments, and choosing my cards on occasion for the HM gallery.  How could I not play along?  Of course her sketch is fantastic... check it out:
Both my husband and I are in love with our birds ... so doesn't it surprise you that I haven't a feather in the house?  I've made do, I hope!


I've created my own candles using some fabulous papers from two fabulous, generous, friends and BOTH papers are from #PTI ... do they know how to please me, or what? 

Speaking of pleasing ... how about that sparkle, huh?  Pulled out the Ranger Stickles - take THAT illusive WOS!!!


Hope you add a whole lot of sparkle to your day!  xx  Your visit has surely added to mine ...

You just added sparkle to my day! Kind words......sweet card....and stickles! (And I just had to have a throw down with Autocorrect who kept changing that last word to sticklers!)

You have a way of cracking me up when I read your blog. "Take THAT," indeed!! Love your interpretation of the FMS sketch. Mother always said to make do with what we've got...but then she never had any leisure-craft time. LOVE the greens. And love the CASness. And I do love the brighter sparkle! Have a good one. Bev

Michele, love your take on the sketch. Those candles and that lovely bright flickery flame are a lovely combination of soothing colors. A cool clean card.

Love the fresh pretty green Michele and that little strip of embossed paper! Your candles work perfectly in place of the feathers. A delightful card!!

Michele, mon amie ... I've just spent a heap of delicious time meandering through your glorious creations over the past few weeks (is it really that long??!). As ever, I've been stunned into gasping silence by your beautiful cards ... and enveloped by your awesome inspiration throughout ... from Botanical Blocks to 12 Kits ... and everything in between! Sorry I couldn't comment on each one ... you'd still be waiting at the end of the year :):)! Made a note to visit Misty when I'm all caught up with everyone ... you're so right about this wonderful crafting community! Hugs across the miles, my friend, Anita :)

Terrific card! I really like how you adapted this to what you did have! Great use of pattern paper and texture! Gotta love the sparkle. That makes anything more festive! Excellent work! :)

Michele this is so much fun! Love the colour of your long candles!

Brenda said...

Michele, you crack me up! I too love Stickles but haven't used mine in a while. Haven't used the WOS in a while either. Both are lonely. Love your card and your take on the sketch! I'm surprised to learn that you don't have any feathers. But you certainly have made do and were very creative!! This is a fabulous CAS card! Hugs, Brenda

Sharron said...

Stunningly CAS! Wonderful blending of patterns, colors and sparkle!
