Tuesday Morning Sketches #486

Hello!  Thank you for stopping by.  It's time to kick off our favorite sketches of 2018 - this week is Andrea's favorite.  It's up on the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog along with some great inspiration from the design team.

My card features papers and stickers from a past card kit from Simon Says Stamp.  I think it was March or April.  The papers and stickers are Carta Bella.

I really should have cut a larger oval for the focal image because it gets a little lost at the top of the floral arrangement.  But overall, it's a nice card - I'm pretty happy with it and happy that I'm using up stuff before I get new.  Not a resolution or anything - but I do need to use what I have more often.  I didn't take the January kits from either Simon or Spellbinders.  Way too focused on Valentine's Day and that is definitely not my holiday.  So by not taking those kits, it forced me to use what I have.  Not a bad thing!

Head on over to the TMS blog for some really great cards made by the team.  And then give the sketch a whirl!  Have a great day.

PS - Enjoying my visit with my son.  Time is going by so quickly!  It's been great having all 3 of my kids under one roof again.

And for the Instant Pot - I love it!!  I've made steel cut oats in it, buffalo chicken pasta, pulled pork - but I mentioned a pot roast.  Deeee-licious.  I followed (sort of) this recipe here.  I don't like mushrooms so those I left out and I would say back off the salt if you use the au jous mix.  But it was really good, the meat so tender.

definitely a spring "perk up" anticipating fair weather to come! Nice job bringing your choices together to make a cohesive look and such a pretty card. I especially like the stitching on the oval! You are also doing a good job, using up the SSS March 2018 Kit, which is so cute!

Your card has me thinking of Spring! I love the pretty colors and how you added the small grow sentiment.
