Tuesday Morning Sketches #48

Good Morning!  As you read this post, I am on the last hours of my visit with my cousin.  I have enjoyed every minute of spending the holiday weekend with him and it was a certainly much needed break.  As I head home today I know my thoughts will be spinning on the last days of school, Hollyanne's dance recital and packing up my house to move.  Ack!

This week over at Tuesday Morning Sketches, I have another fun sketch and a great sponsor.  This week is sponsored by One Stop Card Crafts - a store in the UK.  I always consider it such an honor when companies seek me out to sponsor and was delighted when Shelley, the store owner, wanted to sponsor.  The store offers a wide variety of card craft supplies and she's offering a $10 voucher to the winner but here's another great offer - during the week that she's sponsoring TMS, she's offering all readers and participants a 10% discount on purchases made.  Head on over to Tuesday Morning Sketches for the discount code.

And now for my card...

I created this card with an image from Bugaboo and it's to honor a wonderful friendship my oldest son and his friend Malachi have.  They've known each other since the 5th grade and even though he's moved to Georgia, they are still very close.  I am disappointed that my paper piercing isn't visible - not just in the photo, but in real life, too.  The paper really hides it - but other than that, I love my card!

Perfect friend card, Melissa, and the color combo reminds me of blue jeans and casual summer shirts -- just like summer!

Hope you had a wonderful, refreshing time at your cousins because it sounds like you are going to need all the energy you can have once you return home!!
