Welcome to Freebie Friday! I’ve been a busy little editor this week. Since our September/October issue goes on sale next week, I’m getting all the online content ready to post on our web site. While I always look forward to our annual Halloween/Fall issue, I’m a little sad to say goodbye to summer…especially since it’s not officially over yet. Yes, I’m an eternal optimist when it comes to summertime.
So I thought before we get all excited about falling leaves, caramel apples and trick or treating, I would spotlight one of my favorite cards from our departing July/August issue. It’s Lisa Dorsey’s Hello Sunshine Card. As one of our 22 online bonus projects, you can find supplies and instructions to recreate this project on our web site HERE.
It’s based on this fun sketch by Go-to Gal Betsy Veldman:
To see what other designers did with Betsy’s sketch, make sure you check out the Go-to Sketches column in our July/August issue. And if you missed the other online bonus projects from this issue, you’ll find all 22 right HERE.
Ready for today’s giveaway? Since I know you’re dying to recreate Lisa’s card, you’re going to need the right tools, right? Leave a comment telling me your favorite thing about summertime. I’ll pick two winners to receive some Fiskars tools, including their Circle Border Punch (Sun) and Classic 8-inch scissors. All comments must be received by midnight (MDT) on Sunday, August 15.
P.S. If you’re a fan of sketches, we’re launching our Go-to Sketch Challenge #6 on Monday. Stay tuned for more details!
