Tuesday Morning Sketches #142

Good Morning!  I am soooo excited about today.  It's Tuesday so that, of course, means a new sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches but I am more excited about our sponsor this week.  We have Kim and Bobbi of Raisin Boat sponsoring us this week.  I have mentioned them before, but let me share with you how much I love this company!

Raisin Boat is, how I describe, the Netflix of the stamping world.  You rent stamps!  You receive a minimum of 2 stamp sets per month and you get to play and create with them that whole month and then send them back (postage paid round trip!) and get two new sets to play with (when eligible per plan).  And if you decided YOU SIMPLY CANNOT part with a set, then it's available for purchase at a member discount.  But not only do they have LOTS of stamps to choose from, also available is card stock is super yummy colors, Stickles and other embellishment options, ink and Copics!  This is such a wonderful place to shop.

I created two cards to share with you.  This one uses one of the sets I had rented....

This card was made entirely out of one stamp set called Curly Cute.

And then Kim & Bobbi were generous and sent us stamp sets to play with and keep.  This set is up part of the prize package being offered.  And... ahem... bottom line - it's fabulous!!

And for those who know me - this sentiment is totally me!  I talk like that.  LOL  And this card features their FAN. TAS. TIC!! card stock.  I love it, the colors are rich and vibrant.  The texture is smooth and the weight is perfect.

I know I sounded like a big commercial and I'm not trying to sell you anything - I am just very excited about this company and their products.  I hope to build a strong relationship between RB and TMS and me, too!  If you'd like to try their products for free, then just play along with us for a chance to win.
