Tuesday Morning Sketches

Good Morning!  I hope everyone had a great Monday.  Mine was OK - very busy and I was just too tired to face it.  But we press on!

The last revisited sketch is up and this one is my favorite, too, but this is Kris' pick.  She's also our sponsor and she's offering a fantastic prize.

Now my card is featuring some very new things for me.  Most are old but, the stamps, dies and a couple of the inks are very new to me.  I've decided to go into party plan again.  If you're a follower of mine that has been with me for awhile, then you know I used to be a Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  And it was fun.  But you also know that I got out because the financial commitment was too great and I just wasn't getting the parties.  Not to mention the box you get put in and there is sooo much out there worth exploring.

Well, despite the cons, I'm doing it again.  I've signed up to be a Journey Coach with Fun Stampers Journey.  We'll see just have to see what happens.  I'm hoping to do a party a month so that I'm a little more social again.  That was the big PRO.

But here's a card I made featuring a stamp set called Bird Tweet and sentiment set called Every Day.  The only inks that I used that is FSJ is the blue flower - the color is called Beach Breeze and the sentiment is stamped with Black Licorice.

The bottom on of the bird I didn't get quite the blending I was hoping for but it still turned out really cute.  The fishtail banner I made by covering a piece of card stock with purple polka dot washi tape that I got from Target.  The vellum doily is from retired die by MFT.  The circle is cut from circle dies by MFT and then embossed with a chevron pattern embossing folder by Cuttlebug.

Please join us at TMS, we'd love to have you play along.  Be sure to read the whole post, we're having a DT call.  Have a great week!  Thank you for your visit.

Your card is so adorable Melissa! I love the vellum doily! Cute flowers and birds! Congrats on your new adventure with Fun Stampers Journey! I will need to go Google this company, I've never heart of them. I have been toying with the idea of becoming a Stampin' Up demonstrator, but have decided against it. The timing is not right since the factory my hubby has worked at for 28 years recently closed. I need to let things settle down and see where we land before I make a commitment like that. Wishing you good luck with your new journey!

Beautiful card. I so like all the die cut pieces, the embossed circle and the purple dotty fishtail. Nicely done - very clean but elegant looking.
