To somebody special - TMS #354


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!  


This is one of those a-bit-of-this-and-that cards.  The green embossed panel has been floating around my desk for probably over a year!  [It's embossed with Spellbinders "Flourish" Impressabilities and inked with TH peeled paint.]  The image [Butterfly Flower from Sami Stamps] has been sitting for a couple of months waiting to be used.  The green cardstock was in a box of scraps that I had intended to organize last summer.  (Still not organized... most of it just got thrown out because I have way too many scraps!!)  The sentiment is from M5D. 

This week, we have a new sponsor... we're glad to have Pink and Main sponsoring this week!!  **The prize is $15 store credit**  The winner will have fun checking out their really cute stuff!!!
 


Here's our sketch... :)

More Father's Day - TMS #353


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!  

I'm all messed up this week!  I went away and forgot to have my post ready to go before I left. :P  And I decided at the last minute to leave my laptop at home, so I couldn't even do it at all.  But I'm home now and here it is...



I made a "fancy fold"... (not sure what this is technically called)




My image is Doodle Pantry "Old Ship Color Plus."  It's cut out using Spellbinders Standard Circles and framed with Spellbinders Labels 22.  My DP is Prima "DIY Shop."

Handy father's day -- TMS #352


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!  

It's not a "requirement" for fatherhood that a man be handy with tools, but both my father and my husband are very handy with tools, so this "little handyman" is a great image for me to use on a Father's Day card...



My DP is all scraps.  The banner is DCWV corrugated DP.  My image is Handy Harry from Digital Delights and is colored with Spectrum Noir markers then fussy cut.  (He's a little dark... I printed the color image in black and white by mistake and just colored him rather than printing again.)  The square behind him is cut out with Spellbinders Celebra'tions Squares.  My sentiment is a Recollections rubber stamp.

Here's our sketch for this week...



We've got a new sponsor this week -- Crafty Sentiments!!   We're so happy to have them sponsoring!!  The prize is 3 digital stamps of the winner's choice. :)




Challenges...

Merry Christmas - TMS #351


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!  I've got a Christmas card for you today.   I tried a new (to me) technique for this... on the edge die cutting.  


To do this, when you place your die on the paper, part of the die is off the cutting plate so that it doesn't cut through.  Not sure if that makes sense, but you can find tutorials on YouTube.  
My die is CC Designs Winter Wonderland.  **See? I'm already wishing for next winter's snow!! LOL**  I used CB Swiss Dots to emboss.  The DP is Recollections "Winter Frost," and my sentiment is from My Craft Spot "Joy To the World" stamped with Versafine.  


Here's our great sketch from Patti...





She is also sponsoring this week with this great prize package...

  

Challenges...
Addicted to Stamps #126 - only sentiment, no image
Christmas Card Challenge #23 - Christmas card (I didn't do optional colors)
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas #280 - vintage or anything goes Christmas
ABC Christmas Challenge - I for Ink (I used Versafine Onyx Black to stamp my sentiment)

Can it really already be the 1st of May???  Wow!  I must be getting old because time seems to be flying by!


Isn't this birdie cute??!?  I hope time flies for the recipient of this card and that this birdie cheers him up as he heals!  This is for a young boy in our church who broke his leg.  Poor little guy!  His break required surgery and a pin.  :(  

I used the color image from Boo-boo Birdie & Ants.  He was cut out with Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics B then I ran my Cutter Bee Bug around the edges to make a pierced border.  The sentiment is cut out using Spellbinders Ribbon Banners.  My ribbon is AC.  The chipboard button is DCWV.  The plaid paper is a scrap that I distressed on my Distrezz It All.  [I love that little machine!!!]
