Tuesday Morning Sketches #551

Hello!  Thank you so much for stopping by.  I appreciate your visit and hope that you'll leave me a comment so that I know you were here.

The latest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning  Sketches and this one is by Debbie.  It's a really great sketch - great for using up scraps or showcasing some fun washi.  It's also great to show off an amazing focal image.

I have two cards today.  This first one features a Christmas die from Spellbinders.  I actually picked this up recently (a couple of months ago) at Hobby Lobby on clearance.  Normally it sold for $14.99 and I got it for $3.74 - what a bargain!  I'll be using this to make my Mom's Christmas cards.


I also pulled out some paper that I have had for a very long time and cut the strips using a die from MFT Stamps.  The bow and the hangar part of the ornament is cut from pink metallic paper.  This was a really easy card to put together.

My 2nd card features the Magical Characters II bundle from Queen & Company that I bought to make birthday cards for Levi and Courtney.


Isn't this fun?  I am missing Disneyworld - even though I never go, it makes me sad to know it's still closed and will be for at least another month.  I think of my friend Kelly who works for Disneyworld in a call center and am thankful that she's still working.  But I worry for how much longer.

I did leave off the tag element at the bottom left of the card (see the sketch) because I really couldn't think of anything to add.

I do thank you, again, for your visit and I hope you to see you over at the TMS blog to join us for our challenge.  Please be sure to leave the team some love, they deserve your kind words.

Both you cards are fantastic! You got a great deal on the ornament die and it was the perfect size for the sketch. The Ears card is a lot of fun and perfect for our current social distancing situation. Take care!
