Tuesday Morning Sketches #596

 Hello!  Thank you for stopping by.  I do appreciate your visit.  The latest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  It's a fun one, a super easy one and I think it'll be a favorite.

With my card shares, I want to share what inspires me.  This week's card was inspired by Hobby Lobby clearance tags.

I mean, would you be able to pass these up?  I sure couldn't!  And it so happens this doily die worked great for this sketch. So here's my card...

I cut half the doily pieces from cream colored card stock - the die is called Pointed Harmony Doily.  I really did it to just practice and it just worked!  I pulled in the other colors and went with it.  The lighter blue flag I used the Twinkle Lights Glimmer plate and some gold foil that's a bit holographic.  Then I've had this vellum which, if I remember correctly, is mermaid scales that I picked up last year or so at Hobby Lobby.  The sentiment is from CTMH called Everyday Magic.

So it wasn't until Sunday evening when I created this post that I realized I never posted last week's Tuesday Morning Sketches card.  If you were on the TMS blog, saw it there.  But I wanted to share it with you just so I can tell you how this card was inspired.  Honestly, it was inspired by the raspberry and orange sherbet my son brought home.  I don't play with my Oxide inks nearly enough.  Isn't this pretty?  And so very cheery.


Okay well thanks again for stopping by and we'll see at Tuesday Morning Sketches.

Love how you folded the die with the beautiful scales and sentiment. Love your second card, the colours are wonderful and making the sentiment the focus is great Melissa.

Your card is really pretty...the doilly puts me in the of collars that my mom use to crochet and I would wear with collarless dresses. They were beautiful...too bad I didn't keep them~

I loved reading about the inspiration for both cards...now I want some sherbet!! Each of these are so different and so great!! What great bargains you found I’ve been thinking about checking out the glimmer plates...not even quite sure what they are yet. You pulled a Patti — forgetting to post your card!!!!
