Tuesday Morning Sketches #189

Good Morning!  Happy Tuesday - it's time for another sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches and this one is drawn by our very own Grandma Bonnie.  But it's also time for the Judged Challenge and this time the added twist is Monochromatic Green.

I have been having fun with my punches (be sure to come back Friday so I can show what else I did) lately and I found this great tutorial on You Tube of the cutest puppies created from punches.  You can see the tutorial here.  So I created my version of "Barkley."

Is that not the cutest paper puppy you've ever seen?  I love him!  He is created with only a few punches.  1 3/8", 1 1/4", 3/4" circle punches, word window punch and I added in a small oval punch.  He was so easy to put together and he makes me happy!

Now, head on over to TMS to play along with us.... you're playing for a seat in My Creative Classroom, class of your choice.  Wow!
