Tuesday Morning Sketches #385

Hi friends!  Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today.  Our re-visit sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches, this week's sketch was picked by Debbie. I like this one, too.

I have a friend who just had a beautiful baby girl.  I don't crochet anymore, but I had started a baby blanket a long time ago and I just couldn't get anywhere with it.  Crocheting just causes too much pain.  So I pulled it all out and balled up the yarn.  I used all the skeins that I had to package up something that I sent my sister.  She knits, so I told her she can either use it for something or give it away or throw it away.  She made a lovely blanket, hat, sweater and doll out of the yarn.  I honestly didn't know there was that much yarn!  Well, she sent it all to me and now I have a gift for Andrea's baby.  Here's the card I made to go with it....


Before I go further, a very long time ago, which prompted the birth of Tuesday Morning Sketches, a couple of friends of mine and I took turns hosting challenges on our blogs.  My very first challenge was to create a card using as much embossing as possible before breaching the tacky line.  I decided to do the same with this otherwise pretty plain card front.  The reason it's so plain is because the inside is where all the magic and hard work went....


I used a pop up card kit by Lori Whitlock.  Isn't this cute!  Oh my goodness, I love how this turned out.  It's a 5x7 card, which really made the card front challenging.  But all in all, I think she'll love it.

Please join us at the TMS blog to play along.  See you there!
