Sending You Lots of Love--FMS 272

January 25, 2017

Today I am playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.  When I first looked at the sketch, I was a little puzzled.  I wasn't sure I could come up with an idea.  I absolutely love what the DT did with this sketch.  They are all so creative!

I started looking through the mess on my table and decided to use the new Lawn Fawn Happy Mail  mailbox die for my card.  I used the die and cut the mailbox from Very Vanilla and the post from Crumb Cake.  The little flag is Real Red.  I attached a pink heart brad I found in my stash.  The flag actually moves up and down!

I used Tim Holtz Distress inks to create the blue for the large circle and the grass.  I cut the circle with the SugarPea Designs Zig Zag Stitched Circle die.  The grass is cut using the Lawn Fawn Meadow Borders die.  

I cut the two envelopes from the Happy Mail die with Valentine paper.  You can actually open each letter for a message. The sentiment is from My Creative time and stamped in Memento Black ink.  

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today!  I love to hear from you, so please leave a comment!
