Freshly Made Sketches 287

It was a perfect Mother's Day: I got the house to myself this afternoon and I spent it in the craft room.

There were a few tasks in there: tidy up, unpack the Big Brown Box that arrived earlier in the week, prep some classes... and then some time to play with one of the new things and the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.

The stamps are from the new catalogue, a set called Colourful Seasons. There are the most amazing co-ordinating dies: Seasonal Layers. I couldn't resist using the gorgeous leaves, especially since it is the colours of autumn that I can see outside my window right now.

The panel is masked and sponged using So Saffron, Delightful Dijon and Cajun Craze - a colour I seldom use. I might need to rethink that!

Even the sentiment is from Colourful Seasons. Watch out for this bundle in the new Annual Catalogue, from 1 June.

  1. Wow, this is so beautifully autumnal, Jan! Gorgeous colours and dies! Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.

  2. I love this Jan - a real standout on the FMS gallery this week. Gorgeous!

  3. What a fantastic Mother's Day you had!! Isn't it funny how as Mother's our wish for Mother's Day is to spend it away from our children?? LOL!! I had planned to craft all day but spent the day with the kids going for walks and shopping etc. Just wanted to say I'm in love with the Autumnal card. I love the die's and leaf images and that blending is to die for. It does remind me though that I need to go and rake up all the leaves.....again.....enjoy the weekend!!
