Tuesday Morning Sketches #242

Good Morning!  It's Tuesday already and I cannot wait to show you what I created with this week's sketch.  It's a loose interpretation but that's what I like about it, it's basic enough that you can go almost anywhere with it with almost any kind of project.

Our sponsor this week is Creative Classroom.  I'd still like to take one of their classes, they sound like so much fun!  I'm sure they have one on 3D art and that's what I created.

I really love making simple desk calendars.  This one is for one my carpoolers.  She likes pink and bling.  Now that can really go over the top but I decided to keep it classy.  There's a bit of pink and a bit of little bling and it earned a compliment in the elevator this morning.  I created the tent base myself out 110 lb weight card stock.  Then I cut the other pieces from cut files that I got at the Silhouette Online Store.  There was another piece to the flower but I omitted it mostly because I ended up putting my card stock in the wrong place and ended up cutting my mat.  I fixed it with a piece of packaging tape, but I'm going to have to break down and buy another mat.  I've owned this machine for 3 months and this is the 2nd mat I've used up.

Anyway, head on over to TMS to join us and to see what lovely cards my team created to share with you.  Have a fantastic day!
