Happy Monday and welcome back to another new sketch
@ FTHS - i {heart} sketches!!
Here is this weeks sketch
 Image: FTHS ~ Anneke

Paper: Kraft cardstock and other misc. scrap paper

October is a VERY busy month for me with birthdays. I have 3 friends, my mother, my soon to be daughter-in-law, my oldest granddaughter and my own ~ WHEW! So it only seemed fitting to make a birthday card :)
Plus, it's fall and my favorite time of year, so I decided to use some fall colors.
I used FTHS "Anneke" and you can use her with and without a smile, so you can choose the image that suits your card making style best. I love her cute smile so I decided on that one.

  1. I wonder if one of your young grand-daughters inspired you to use Anneke for this lovely Autumnal Birthday card Michelle - she's soooo cute. Your backing paers and mount for Anneke are so attractive too. October sounds a month of celebration in your family - hope you all have a great time and we look forward to seeing more of the birthday cards you create.. Good luck in our challenge this week.

  2. Gorgeous Fall birthday card!!! Your October sounds like my December! Super, super busy!!! I know the little one getting this gorgeous Anneke card is going to love it!!! Hope you are having a great week.

  3. Autumn is my favourite time of year as well Michelle - the colours are superb as they are on your card! Such a sweet little image and the papers look really nice with their distressed edges.
