Tuesday Morning Sketches #435

Hello! Thank you so much for stopping by.  It's been awhile, but it has been a wonderful break.  I've been crocheting again and I can't seem to stop.

So if you've been a friend of TMS for awhile then you know at the beginning of every year we revisit some of our favorite sketches from the past year.  Up first is Carol's choice and she picked a great sketch by Janice.  My card features the Dahlia Turn-about stamp set by Concord and 9th.  My sisters gave me an Original size MISTI as an I-love-you-gift, we weren't exchanging Christmas gifts this year, so I was pretty excited to use the MISTI with this turn-about stamp.

My card also features dies by Papertrey Ink and CC Designs.  Ink colors are by Hero Arts.  My sentiment didn't stand out as much as I'd hoped and it wasn't until I embossed it that I remembered the dark blue embossing powder that may have worked better.  Oh well - the card is still pretty.

Please join us over at the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog.  There is a super cute embossing folder available for the prize!   Also, visit the team's blogs, too.  Leave them some much deserved love!  I look forward to a new year of creativity with them and you.


Have a great day!

What a wonderful Christmas gift to receive! I hope to own one someday! Your card is so pretty with those wonderful colors and I really like the ferns used as accents! It's a very pretty card that will make anyone smile who receives it :)

This is gorgeous!! (I love my Mini MISTI but often wish I'd gone for the full size.)

This is a really pretty color combo and what a neat stamp! The little die cuts work great with the sketch.

I can't believe you're crocheting again because . . .me too!! I picked up a throw that I started last year (when my husband had his shoulder replaced) and got to working on it while my hubby was in for his knee replacement. You should share your crocheted creations with us too!! I will if I ever get it finished. lol

Oh yes lol, I DO love your card too, what a great stamp set and your color choices are really pretty. Sweet sisters you have!

What a pretty card Melissa!! I got a Misti for Christmas too. Just haven't had the mojo to play with it much yet. :-(
