Tuesday Morning Sketches #260


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

I've got a card for you.  There is no sentiment on the front of this one because I embossed before I realized I had not done it!  :P  This is my daughter's birthday card.  She turned 18, so she's no longer a little girl, but she's got the red hair!!  :)  This is pretty CAS, but it was made with a lot of love!!!


Supplies...
~Recollections "Portobello Road" (I think it is actually a masculine stack but I love this page!)
~Hand Stained Bias Tape from Kraft Outlet
~CB Swiss Dots embossing folder {This is the first EF I ever bought.  I have a few, several, lots, too many to admit to, almost 100, not enough embossing folders, but this one still gets used the most!}
~Recollections adhesive pearls
~Gretchen Loves Roses digi from Your Next Stamp colored with Spectrum Noir markers

Our sponsor this week is Your Next Stamp.  Play along to win!!


Our sketch is by Jessi...  This is a great sketch that can be CAS or layered and embellished!!


Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to go check out the creations from the rest of our DT...

Happy Birthday - TMS #259


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

I've got a birthday card to show you.  I apologize for the poor quality of my pic.   Sunday we had my daughter's homeschool graduation and party.  At the beginning of the service, I took out my camera and it was broken!  So I'm relying on my phone until I can get it looked at.  Not fun!


Here's our wonderful sketch by Melissa...


This week, DRS Designs is our sponsor and was generous in supplying the DT with images.  Thank you so much!!


My image is Dogwood Branch and the sentiment is Small 1 Line Happy Birthday.  The image is colored with Spectrum Noir.  My DP is pink paislee "London Market."   My image is cut out using Spellbinders Mat Basics, and the fancy cut behind it is Spellbinders Fleur de Lis.

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to go check out the creations from the rest of our DT...

Roughin' it!


My kids are going off to camp in a few weeks, and I want to send a note for each of them to read mid-week.  I was going to make a basic "hello" or "thinking of you" but decided to try to go with the camping theme!  One of my DD's saw me working on this and said, "I'd be totally content roughing it."  Good thing... the camp in the Wilds!  (Haha!  She doesn't realize she's probably going to get this one!)


My image and sentiment are from one of this month's releases at Doodle Pantry.  It's Happy Trails Camper.  This set is FREE with any purchase for a few more days... until July 24.  Hurry over! :)
My DP is 7 Gypsies, the image is cut with Spellbinders Labels One and distressed with TH vintage photo, and the brad is MM Antique Copper.

This week, Doodle Pantry is sponsoring Pile It On challenge #29 - Summer Fun, so play along there for a chance to win some DP goodies!

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

Bunny hugs


Hope you are enjoying your weekend!!  I've been sick but am feeling better this evening.  I think I just needed some crafting therapy! :)  I've got a cute card to show you...


Isn't this image adorable?  I did not add a sentiment yet because this could be a "thinking of you" card, it could be a baby card, it could be a birthday card... so many possibilities!   My paper is scraps and so is the ribbon.  Yay for using bits and pieces!!!  My image is Doodle Pantry Bunny Friends

Challenges...
Sister Act #65 - anything goes
TTCRD July 8-14 - anything goes
{PIN}spirational Challenge #115 - photo (I went with the colors)

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed day!!!

Doodle Pantry Christmas in July!


Tomorrow is July 4th and we'll be enjoying barbecues and fireworks and... I've got a Christmas card for you!!  :)

Today is Doodle Pantry's July Release and Challenge.   There are fewer than normal new sets because Laurie and her family are in the midst of a move!!  She is awesome because I can't begin to imagine trying to create anything is the midst of getting a house sale-able and moving not to mention that she injured her hand last month!!!
SO... in addition to the new sets, some of us are showcasing previous releases in conjunction with the challenge theme... "Make it Christmas" OR "Make a Splash" so if you are remembering that Christmas is only 174 days away, you can create something Christmas-y, or if you are just trying to keep cool, create a project with water (or water creatures or swimming, etc!)

I went with "Christmas"!  (Though if you have to decorate a cactus for Christmas, you are probably in need of a splash in some cool water, too!! LOL)


My DP is Paper Studio, image cut with Spellbinders Postage Stamp, AC ribbon, and star brad.   My cactus and sentiment are from Doodle Pantry's Holiday Cactus.



So play along with our "Christmas" or "Make a Splash" Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge to win some DP images of your own!!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

Christmas and Canada! - TMS #256


Happy Tuesday to you!!!  And Happy July 1st to you!!!   That means Happy Canada Day to my Canadian peeps!! :)  I've got something for you if you scroll down a bit. ;)

It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches and we've got a wonderful versatile sketch and wonderful sponsor!  (But don't we always??!!??)

My card is a Christmas card...  I know, I know... not very July 1st-ish!


I used fancy pants "wonderland" DP, Sweet 'n Sassy Small Snowflake Dies, and Sweet 'n Sassy Christmas Tags Clear Stamp Set.

Here's the great sketch by Melissa...

 

You may have guessed that our wonderful sponsor is Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps!!!


Now for my Canada Day card!!  I took the sketch and stretched it tall for this card...


Isn't this cute???  I miss spending Canada Day at my parents cottage in NB, enjoying family, swimming,  water skiing, and getting sunburned!!  Always got sunburned!!

When I saw this Canada Day freebie from Whimsie Doodles, I couldn't resist her!!  My DP is AC "Jolly." It is actually a Christmas pad! LOL  I thought the "snowflakes" matched the sparkler!

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to go check out the creations from the rest of our DT...
