CHA October Blog Hop Winner & FMS258 + CTD414 + Seize the Birthday

Before getting to my card, I want to congratulate Verna Angerhofer, the winner of my giveaway during the Craft Hoarders Anonymous October Blog Hop!

I put off announcing the winner until I could find time to make a card to include in the post, and, unfortunately, that didn't happen until late this afternoon. Is it just me, or is the sun disappearing awfully early these days?

Color Throwdown #414 has one of my favorite color palettes this week and it is paired with Freshly Made Sketches #258 to create this card. The inspiration photo for the Color Throwdown also inspired me to pull out a SSS Berkshire Leaf Outline Border to use as the banner in the sketch.

A woodgrain embossing folder adds texture and the sweet sentiment banner is wrapped around one edge of the popped up aqua panel.

This card is also being linked to the Anything Goes challenge at Seize the Birthday.


Thanks for stopping by,



  1. It's NOt you, Jacquie ... and the sun doesn't rise here until nearly 8 a.m. either ... so no photos early. At any rate, your card is wonderful! Congrats to Verna!

  2. This is a wonderful color combinations with plenty of texture, Jacquie.

  3. Sun? What sun? Winter would be a whole lot more bearable with summer sunlight hours. Anyway - I saw this card (without looking at who's it was) when I was looking at the FMS gallery today and thought it was a true winner. Then I came over here and saw it was yours! I love it, Jacquie!
