we jingle all the way - TMS #525

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

I've got a fun Christmas card to share, but first I have to show you how beautiful fall is in NY!!  Pictures don't really even some close to showing reality, but there's nothing quite like maple leaves against an October sky! 



Then my mother sent me a pic from NB, so I had to add it.  Wow!!!




Now here's my card...



In case you can't read the sentiment, it says, "In this house we laugh, play & we jingle all the way."  It's a clear sentiment from Sum More Fun's Tangled Tinsel.  My DP is the Paper Studio Pine St. Square.  My snowflakes are Sweet n Sassy Stamps small snowflakes. The snowflakes and the ribbon shimmer IRL.  I've had this paper forever and am nearing the end of the pile I got. :( 




Here's our sketch...  (use circles or any shape you'd like)

thank you - TMS #524

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  I've actually got 2 cards to show you today.  I made one, then looked closer at the sketch and realized I had missed the BG element completely!!  Here's the one done according to the sketch...   



My DP is MME Lost & Found Two Breeze. I cut a piece with Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics then cut it into various sizes.  (Info on that is on the TMS blog post.)  The middle panels are cut with CottageCutz Stitched Rectangles.  My sentiment is Cuttlebug "With Gratitute" die, and my embellishment is a Heidi Swapp chipboard butterfly. 


My second card (first one made... incorrectly!)  is a fun, girly card...



My image and sentiment are from Sweet n Sassy Stamps "Girly Girl Cookie" clear stamp set which I think is discontinued.  She's colored with my Spectrum Noir markers.  (This image is available as a digital known as "Pamper Me Cookie.")  My DP is Crate Paper DIY Shop.  I mirrored the sketch so my shoe paper clip would not cover the image.  Here's a closeup of it...
Isn't this cute??!?  I've had this forever, so no clue where I got it.  The pkg also has purse, ring, and dress paper clips.  


Here's our sketch...

Merry Christmoose - SCC #105

October 1st!!  Only 85 days until Christmas!!  But it is several days less than that until we need to send out our Christmas cards, so that's what we try to help with all year long at Sparkles Christmas Challenge! :)   This month's theme is "Make us Laugh."

I hope this guy at least bring a big smile to your face!


 My image is Make It Snappy Merry Christmoose from Bugaboo Stamps.  He's colored with Spectrum Noir markers, and I added some Glossy Accents to the Christmas bulbs. (Click on the pic to enlarge it to see the cool effect.)  He's cut out with CottageCutz Stitched Rectangles.  My DP is the Paper Studio Pine St. Square.

This image was so fun to color and make into a card!  Please come over, play along, and show us your fun Christmas cards!!


Thanks for stopping and have a blessed day!!

Merry Christmas to Ewe - TMS #523

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  Last year, I only sent Christmas cards to close family.  This year, I hope to send to everyone on my list.  I'm well on my way, but still need about 40 more. Here's one, so only 39 left! :D 



My image is Bugaboo Stamps' Merry Christmas to Ewe.  I printed it on Kraft, colored some with my Spectrum Noir markers, and scribbled with a white Gelly Roll pen for the wool.  It was cut out with Cross Stitched Rectangles from Cheapo Dies.  My papers were from my scrap box.  

Here's our sketch for the week...

thank you - TMS #522

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!  I made my card this week using stuff that was out and laying around on my craft table (except the dots)...


My DP is Crate Paper Blossom.  The flowers are all Prima, and the sentiment was sitting there having been previously stamped and die cut, so I don't remember where the clear sentiment is from. 

Here's our sketch for the week... (I am going to make more from this... I think using snowflakes would make a great Christmas card!)
