Time for a new Freshly Made Sketch! I'm the hostess this week, so this sketch was my design. It seems a bit boring compared to some of the ones we have had recently, but hopefully you'll find it fun anyway. I always seem to do cards with squares or rectangles; I think I have an aversion to circles or something? I can use them on my cards just fine, but I don't tend to create sketches with them. Anyway, rectangles it is! :)
I used a new favorite color combination for this one, Crumb Cake, Island Indigo, and Lucky Limeade. They work so wonderfully together! I usually go for an embossed panel on my background, but I tried something different here and used Versamark to stamp some of the flower images from the set on there. I like how it turned out I think and will have to try it again. The designer paper is from Festival of Prints that is in the holiday catalog; it is so useful for more than just Christmas cards!

Have I mentioned how much I love this girl? After losing Eli, I never thought we'd be truly happy again. She has brought so much joy and happiness back into our lives and I'm so glad that we never gave up hope of being parents again. It's a bit sad right now as this time of year is time that we actually did get to spend with Eli. Hopefully Laila will help us remember the good parts of that time and not dwell on that which we cannot change. I sure do miss my little pumpkin though.
