Tuesday Morning Sketches #493

Hello! Thank you for stopping by.  The newest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and it's a lovely sketch.  I could have played with this one for hours!  I had so many ideas.  Of course, this could be from lack of creativity for nearly a week.  I actually just out of the hospital a few days ago.  Monday night I had a gallbladder attack which resulted in having it removed on Wednesday.  I came home Thursday and will finally go back to work tomorrow.  I got creative on Sunday while chatting with my sisters.  I didn't get far and had to take a 2 hour nap but it felt great to play.

My cards features card stock and stickers that came in the March Simon Says Stamps kit.  Truth be told, this is probably another one that I should have passed on but since I didn't, I vowed to use it.  Here's what I came up with.

As I said, I used card stock that came in the kit so I'm not sure of the color names.  The stickers came from the sticker sheet.  I did lightly add some Lucky Clover ink to sort of halo the sentiment.  The "happy" part is a stamp from a previous SSS kit.  I never really thought about layering stickers before but I think this turned out great.

The cards feature dies from Papertrey Ink and CC Designs.  The embossing folder used is by Darice.  These cards were so easy to put together.  It went relatively quickly when I figured out what I was doing.

 I don't usually make St. Patrick's day cards - I'm not Irish.  But these turned out great and will be sent to the two patients I send cards to weekly.  Maybe they celebrate this festive occasion.

Be sure to join us at the TMS blog and leave some love for the team.
