FMS68 and Resolutions!

Note: The SUO Challenge will be delayed a week, because our fearless leader has been ill.
We should be back with a new challenge on the 15th!

One of my resolutions this year is to be more consistent in my blog posts, and to that end, one of my other resolutions is to participate in more challenges. Sometimes a sketch or color challenge is just the kick in the kiester I need to get creative.

So this week, I'm playing along with Freshly Made Sketches challenge #68. My friend, Jennifer Timko, is on the design team there, and I love seeing her take on the sketches! Here's the sketch for this week:

And here's my take on it:

I rotated it 90 degrees so the greeting would fit on the Everything Eleanor label. It's so soft and feminine looking IRL. I made one of Jennifer's magic bows, spritzed it with water and scrunched it up. Why is it the "messy" bows look so fabulous when someone else does them, and mine just looks sad?

Tomorrow, Mr. Brown is bringing more goodies from the Spring Catalog, woohoo! I had to exercise great restraint and wait to place my main order until after the first of the month. So now I'm anxiously waiting to see my favorite guy tomorrow (outside of immediate family members, lol)!

  1. Sad? As if! Your bow is BEAUTIFUL! This card is just so elegant and feminine.

    Enjoy your new goodies! Can't wait to see what you do with them!

  2. I think this bow is beautiful! The shabby bow is by definition an imprecise thing! Gorgeous card and I love that background lace (I'm obsessed with it, already ordering more). So glad you joined us this week at FMS and I look forward to seeing more of you (hint, hint)!!

  3. Love this Cindy! It is just gorgeous! I hadn't ordered that lace but this is fabulous....I must show restraint!!! Love the colours! That bow is perfect! Your bow does not look sad in the least - it looks perfectly vintage! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!


Thank you for visiting - I'd love to hear from you!
