Tuesday Morning Sketches #625

 Hello and thank you for stopping by!  I appreciate you being here.  The latest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and it's a fun one.

My card features Stitched Star Dies and Sunshine stamps/dies all from Pink and Main.  It is a square card measuring 4 1/4 x 4 1/4.  I do wish I had made it bigger.

I'm still learning to take better pictures with this Shot Box.  Have patience with me!  But I do love how this card turned out.  It was quick to put together and it makes be feel happy.

Please head on over to the TMS blog and leave some love for the team and since you'll be there you may as well join us!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #624

 Hello.  Thank you so much for stopping by.  I am so glad you're here.  The latest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and it's a great one by Andrea.

My card features a great die set from i-Crafter.  More to come about them in the coming weeks.  But this is a great little die company that started last year at Creativation.  The die is  Ribbon Rosette and has a ton of possibilities!  The paper I used is from DCWV called Hippie Chic.

This rosette comes together pretty easily - it's a little tricky like any rosette is, just takes some patience.  My card is pretty fun and September holds many birthdays for my family, my sister, my half brother and a whole slew of cousins! 

Please come on over to the TMS and join us - leave the team some love!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #623

Hello and thank you so much for stopping by!  I do appreciate when you take time out of your busy day to visit me for a minute or two.

The sketch for Tuesday Morning Sketches is up and I think it's a fun one.  Gives you a chance to pull out some of your dies!  My card features paper from an old DCWV mat stack called Linen Closet.  I've had this paper forever.  I also used dies from Pink and Main, CC Designs and Spellbinders.

This was a lot of fun to make and I hope it inspires you to mix and match some of your supplies.

We'll see you over at the TMS blog.  Be sure to stop by to leave some love and kind words to the team and since you'll be there for that, join in the challenge!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #622

 Hello and Happy Tuesday.  Thank you so much for stopping by.  The latest sketch is up on the TMS blog and it's by Andrea.  This is a great one to showcase a favorite image or technique.

My card features stamp from Concord and 9th and dies from Spellbinders.  This didn't turn out quite as I had envisioned, but I guess it's okay....

I also had hoped to try out a new tool that gifted to myself but sadly, it doesn't work so I'll have to package it back up and take it back to Michaels.  I got myself a Shotbox from WRMK and it looked like what they sent me was something someone else returned.

But let's talk about the card.  I used the Wreath Turnabout stamp and stamped in Light Charcoal and then again on a separate piece of card stock in Charcoal.  Inks are by Hero Arts.  I used black card stock for the layers and Dove gray card stock from Concord and 9th for the strip across the middle.  I did turn this sketch from portrait to landscape.  It would've worked either way, but dare to be different, right?

On a personal note, I had a great week this past week.  My son was home for a short time, it'd been nearly 2 years since we'd had him home.  We had a great time. Went to Vero Beach and walked in a beautiful botanical gardens, went mini-golfing and almost had heat stroke (crazy!) and then went to Gatorland and I actually held a snake.  I've never come so close to an anxiety attack but I faced a fear.  I'm still afraid of snakes and no one will get me to hold one ever again.  But it's a memory with my kids and they'll have a story to tell. 

Please head on over to the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog.  We're waiting for you to join us!
