Tuesday Morning Sketches #89

Good Morning!  I hope your week is off to a great start and that you're now ready for a new challenge over at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  This week's sketch is sponsored by Tiffany Doodles, a returning sponsor.  So here's my card for this week's sketch....


Isn't that owl cute?  I love his big eyes.  This is Owl Branch set that features 3 sweet owls and 2 styles of branches.

Supplies:
Card stock:  Neenah Milled Ivory, Kraft, Blush Blossom, Chocolate Chip
Paper:  Garden Party Matstack (DCWV)
Copics:  E29, E33, E34, E37, E57, YG63, Y17

Stamps/Ink:  You're a Hoot (TSG), Rich Cocoa (Memento), Broken China
Tools:  Cricut, Decorative Elements Cartridge

As you an see in my supplies list, I did pull out my Cricut.  I am really saddened by the recent news I read over at my friend, Penny Duncan's blog.  She is selling off her Cricut Expressions because of Provo Craft.  Apparently Provo Craft recently sued the family that created Make The Cut, software that works with the Cricut.  Well, I guess it doesn't work with it any more.  And now Provo Craft is going after the creator's of Sure Cuts A Lot (the software I got last year for Christmas).  The ONLY reason I saved and sold craft items to buy an Expression was so I could get SCAL.  Look, I can't make a difference by myself, but maybe if all of us Cricut owners and SCAL owners ban together we can tell Provo Craft that we're not happy!  It's not like they aren't getting paid.  They got their money with us buying their machines and all the consumables and yes, they still sell cartridges.  Really!?  Do they really think that SCAL or MTC will hurt their business all that bad?

OK - enough of my soapbox... just head on over to TMS and join us for the fun!!

I love this! Those flowers in the background rock!

You know who does seem to have some strange ideas.... I agree, if you have paid for an item, it should be "yours"....

This is really fun! Love the flower cut you used for the background, looks so cool. And the owl is so cute!

I heard the same thing about the SCAL (I don't have one, so don't know much about it), but heard if you don't do any updates you should still be able to use it. I agree though, it seems like a big problem for a lot of people.

Cute card. Love the background cut.

I think that Provo Craft needs to realize that they need more simple cuts like what you used versus there complicated cuts - cutting one item and putting it together could take hours and it's not worth it especially if someone throws away your card!!
