Freshly Made Sketches #61

Happy Wednesday!  Time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!  This week's sketch is brought to you by Jennifer Timko.  I have to say that this sketch threw me for a loop; I couldn't think of a thing to do with it.  Then, while I was working on another project using the Peaceful Pinecones stamp and die set from Papertrey Ink, a lightbulb turned on and this what I made:

I like the cozy feel of the card.  It's makes me want to throw a log into the fireplace.  And I just might do that now that our weather here in Northern California has turned cold.  I'm loving it!  Our fall colors are in full bloom.  And, boy oh boy, that Peaceful Pinecones set is a fun one!  Wouldn't it look awesome with some glitter added to the pinecone?  I might just go back and add some.

Be sure to stop by Freshly Made Sketches and check out all the wonderful creations from the Clean Team!  And please come and play.  I'd love to see your take on this week's sketch!  

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
