Tuesday Morning Sketches #547

Hello! Thank you so much for stopping by.  I appreciate your visit.  The latest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and I hope you're going to enjoy working with it.

So this week is birthday week.  My youngest son's 21st birthday is Friday and his girlfriend turns 21 tomorrow.  It's sad that this is such a milestone birthday and we'll not be able to celebrate it by going out to dinner or having a party.  We may still have a party but within limits.  My sister was even going to fly in for the occasion and celebrate Levi's birthday with us Friday and Hollyanne's (my daughter) birthday, which is not until April 6th, on Saturday.  We were all going to Disney World.  Now her trip is canceled, Disney is closed and we're all stuck here at home.

But I'm still bringing a bit of Disney to us all....

This is actually Courtney's 2nd birthday card - I ruined the first one.  My card features Magical Characters II by Queen & Co (yes, I splurged).  These stamps and dies are so cute!!!  They make 4 different character hats and because they are from Queen & Co - they make shaker cards.  My card also features heart border punch by Martha Stewart and digital paper I bought from an Etsy shop.  The bow is cute from black card stock and you can't see in this picture but the white dots are from white glitter paper that I punched out and glued on.  Then I die cut the red glitter paper and overlayed the black and the white dots.  The sentiment is die cut from the January or February small die club kit from Spellbinders.

Okay - here's the card I ruined.  It looked so plain to me after I took this photo that I decided to try to add some sparkle with Stickles and that turned out to be a huge gloppy mess!  Ruined!! The paper that came in the bundle... the beautiful set of Minnie ears destroyed!

I just couldn't leave well enough alone!  Ugh.  If I had just put the birthday sentiment on it, it would have been fine.  But no!  Oh well, I really like the card I'll be giving her.

Please join us over at the TMS blog.  We'd love to see what you come up with for this sketch.  And be sure to leave the team some love.  One more sec, before you go.  Wanna see my son's birthday card....

The card features digital paper that I got from an Etsy shop, a Simon Says Stamp edge die and some gold foil card stock that came in a SSS monthly card kit some time ago... or maybe it was Spellbinders.  It's been that long - can't remember where.  Anyway!  And to give credit, although not entering their challenge, the sketch came from Create a Smile Stamps.

Those are wonderful Disney cards. Happy Birthday to your son, his girlfriend and to your daughter. So sorry that you all can't go to Disney. Hopefully cake will help, lol. Stay safe.

Well this will be one birthday that definitely never gets forgotten! I can’t even see what’s wrong with your first card Melissa I feel like you’re being hard on yourself Those days are definitely amazing I love both the shakers you made - all the cards you made!!!

At least the postal service is still delivering so we can send family and friends our handmade cards. Your cards are fun and I'm sure they will be loved. My niece turns 16 at the end of April. I'm praying we will be able to see her by then. Take care!
