Tuesday Morning Sketches #586

 Hello!  Happy Tuesday!  It's that time of the year for Tuesday Morning Sketches - it's time for our Annual Anything Goes challenge.

My project is four of the most adorable 3D snowglobe cards by Lori Whitlock...

These are the cards I made to send to my family.  These are so cute - she has a huge line of these designs and I was just so happy that I could cut them using my Silhouette Cameo (8x12 mat).   It's the only electronic cutter I can get to connect to my computer, after awhile.

The first one was a little challenging to put together, but after one, the rest was really easy!

I sent the Gnome to my sister Karin.

This one my Aunt Nancy got.  She said, that looks just like the truck Grandpa had!

My sister Theresa got this one - she loves penguins!

Last, but not least, this one my Momma got.  She called me late at night to tell me how much she loved it!

Now, do you all see the tree behind the cards?  I made it and shared it several years ago.  It's a design by SVG Cuts.  This white tree, I call the Lopez tree.  As I shared last week, my biological father died from COVID on the 7th of December and he was buried on the 17th.  In truth, he was not special to me.  I don't have any happy memories with him.  But when we were little, I do remember spending Christmas with him and his family.  They had a white Christmas tree (actually, it might have been silver).  Then there was this rotating plate that was segmented by 4 for 4 colors with a light behind it.  So as it rotated the tree would be blue, red, yellow and green.  My half-brother and I would lay on the floor practically under that tree and watch it change colors for hours.  So I made the tree to represent that memory, on the inside I have a battery operated tealight that changes colors. 

I hope you enjoyed my post, I would love to hear from here.  Please leave a comment.  After that, please head on over to the TMS blog to join in the fun and leave the team some love.

Also, let me wish you a very Merry Christmas and I hope 2021 is great year for you!

These are fabulous Melissa, love the different one you made, beautifully put together. I have the freebie, but didn't get around to making it. The tree is beautiful and I'm glad it has a happy memory associated with it.
Happy Christmas

Gorgeous. I don't have any experience with SVG files. We may have to consider a play date so you could teach me. Wouldn't that be fun? Merry Christmas!

Love the tree, too, and glad it recalls a nice memory!
