Tuesday Morning Sketches #166

Good Morning!  Happy Tuesday!  We have another great sketch posted at the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog.  And we're being sponsored by Paper Pretties.  Yep, two days in a row do you get to see these adorable images.  I'm using one of my favorite - this is A Beary Good Book....


I had first envisioned this card to have a removable bookmark, but sadly, I ran out of time to get my cards done.  I have taken a HUGE project that I will hopefully get to share with you soon - but we'll have to see how things go.

I kept my card fairly Clean and Simple.  CAS is good, right?  I love all the added texture with the embossing.  I also am playing along with a challenge that is fairly new to me.  This is from The Kraft Journal. The more I play with Kraft card stock, the more comfortable I am getting with it.  The Kraft Outlet is a store that is everything you could want in Kraft... card stock, paper, envelopes, packaging, labels and twine. Whew!  You will think you've died and gone to Kraft heaven when you visit this store.  So I am playing along with their challenge which is CAS!  How well did this work out.

So come along and play with us at Tuesday Morning Sketches and combine your sketch with another challenge for double the fun.

Oh, Melissa, this is adorable! I love that shade of blue with the kraft. I'll have to try that, too. And, the image is fantastic. You're right, it would make a wonderful bookmark. Hmmm, I should use that image and make one for my DD. She is a big reader and just loves getting bookmarks from me!
