TMS #269


Happy Tuesday!  Yay!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!! :)

I don't have a card for you today.  *stunned silence*   But I do have a tag to show you. ;)  This was fun to make.  My image and sentiment seemed more suited to a project other than a card.  See?


 It's a tag on a bag with a banana crumb muffin!  Yummy!  (Click on the name to find the recipe.  They are amazing!!!!!)


My image and sentiment are Baked With Love from Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps our sponsor for this week!!


Here's our awesome sketch by Bonnie... We're sorry to say that Bonnie has stepped down from our team! :(


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

New job congratulations


I've got a card to show you that I started a couple of weeks ago, but then I was away for several days, so I just got it finished. 


I'm very pleased with this card and it was quite quick and easy to put together.  The DP, image and sentiment are all from Antique Desk.  This is a September release from Doodle Pantry.   The bottom half is embossed using Cuttlebug's Roman Bath EF.  I used Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A.  The ribbon is my last scrap of this.  I thought it was a perfect match!  A few buttons finished it all off.

Be sure to visit Doodle Pantry to see some more new releases.  Laurie had a mini release earlier this week.  Really cute sets!  And there are now 2 FREE w/ purchase sets until Sept 24!!    Check out all this month's new releases HERE.

Challenges...
Cuttlebug Mania - anything die cut (used Matting Basics)
Through the Craft Room Door Sept 16-22 - anything goes
Word Art Wednesday #150 - anything goes w/ Scripture or uplifting sentiment
Paper Pretties PWC328 - buttons
Kraftin' Kimmie Wonderful Wednesday - anything goes *this is my first time playing along here.  I'm excited because I just ordered a couple of KK stamps, so next time I'll have them to use!! :)

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

I remembered...


I really need to make more cards like this one!  I have a tendency to be late with birthday cards! :-O  So it is a big deal when I remember! LOL


I used Tall Trio from Doodle Pantry.  This is a fun set!   I'm away right now and can't remember for sure what my DP is... I think it's AC Lucky Charm.  The epoxy button is Making Memories.   I used Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A to cut the frames for the pic and sentiment.

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

Merry Christmas!


No, I'm not seasonally challenged!  I am trying (though very pathetically) to get some cards made before December comes and I run out of time and resort to buying them! :-O

Supplies...
~Little Christmas Scriptures from Doodle Pantry (obviously, this set has greetings as well as Scripture!)
~MME "Vintage Christmas" DP
~Darice "Snowflake Swirl" EF
~Spellbinders Labels 8
~MS ink
~Kraft Outlet Hand Stained Bias Tape

Challenges...
Cuttlebug Mania - anything embossed (used the Darice EF, Spellbinders Labels 8, and my Cuttlebug)
Clear It Out - anything goes + anything goes from stash (I've had this DP for at least 3 yrs!)
{PIN}spirational Challenge #123 - photo inspiration (I used the colors)
Word Art Wednesday #148 - anything goes w/ Scripture or uplifting sentiment 

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

A little trumpet player! -TMS #265


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!  We've got a great sponsor and 3 sketches to choose from!  Yep!  THREE!  So let's get on with it!

My card is for my son who is learning to play the trumpet.  A couple of years ago, he heard "Bugler's Holiday" at the Christmas concert played by the community band in which our oldest daughter plays.  Her teacher (whose proficiency is trumpet) had a solo part in the song that was amazing!!  After hearing it, he turned to me and said, "I want to play the trumpet!"  So we are making it happen!


My DP is DCWV "All About Boys."  The sentiment is Inkadinkado.  Brads are OLD ones that I can't remember where they came from.  My image is Tommy Trumpeter (colored) from Digital Delights by Louby Loo who is sponsoring us this week.  Play along for your chance to win some adorable images!! 


 And this week is fun because you can choose any one of these three sketches for your card!!   If you're feeling really creative, feel free to use more than one of them!  I used the lower right sketch but made it vertical. 


Can't wait to see what you create with one (or more) of these wonderful sketches!!  

Challenges...
Use Your Stuff #151 - brads 
Crafting From the Heart #34 - anything goes

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