FMS 53

Good morning, Friends! Today is our last full day here at our good friend's house. Boo :( But we have a full day of stitching planned! And I am excited to get a lot done! We had a most awesome time at the quilt show yesterday and even spent some time visiting a few of our favorite quilt and wool shops! Of course I spent way too much money but I love everything that I purchased! I won't get to most of them this year but they will be waiting for me next fall! The two big kits that I got are more fall oriented. Who knows? I may be so excited that I can't wait and I end up starting soon! And we can't forge that the Broncos play today! Go Broncos!!!

Today's card was inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made. This sketch was a little challenging. I did start over a few times before I was happy. Still not sure about it but at least I don't hate it - lol! I layered strips of the designer paper from the Orchard Harvest pack onto a panel of More Mustard and then onto a piece of Early Espresso and then popped the whole thing up onto a card base of More Mustard. Then I punched a Very Vanilla circle with the 2 1/2" circle punch and stamped the pear from Perfectly Preserved in More Mustard and the stem in Early Espresso. This is layered onto a scallop circle of Early Espresso that was cut from the Perfect Pennants die. This is popped up onto the card. Then I stamped the second pear in Lucky Limeade and the stem in Early Espresso onto a scrap of Very Vanilla and cut it out using the Cannery framelits dies. I popped this pear up onto the card. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
