Floral thank you - TMS #391


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!   Since our temps are way above normal and all our snow is melting (*sobs*), I've got a rather spring-like card for you...


My image is Ladybug Branch from Sami Stamps.  It's colored using Spectrum Noir markers and cut out using Die-Versions Stitched Nesting Circles and the frame is Spellbinders Standard Circles.  My paper is Paper Crate Flea Market.   My sentiment is Raisin Boat.   The lace and enamel dots are from my stash.  


Here's our wonderful sketch this week by Melissa...  (As you can see, I turned it.  Feel free to stretch it, turn it, and use other shapes... it just must be recognizable.) 

 


Our sponsor for this week is Sami Stamps!  Such sweet images!!

This little piggy...


So... have you ever made a card for a couple of challenges and then forgot about it??  That's what happened to me.  I made it last evening, but just remembered it... with about 30 minutes to spare.  Lots of time!! ;) 

Here's my card...


Sorry... I forgot to take a pic of the inside!!!!   It says, "Happy Birthday."  I used a Raisin Boat clear sentiment.  (I'll try to take a pic and update my post.)

My image is From the Heart Stamps Hogs and Kisses Pigwit.  He's printed on Kraft and colored with Spectrum Noir markers and cut out using Spellbinders Standard Circles.  My DP is Paper Crate Flea Market.  My flourish is Darice and the enamel dots are Recollections.

Challenges...
FTHS Free Stamp of the Month February - must use Hogs and Kisses Pigwit
I {heart} Sketches #162 - sketch, theme, and/or color inspiration (I used the sketch)


Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

I love you - TMS #390


Happy Tuesday to you!  And Happy Valentine's Day!   Whether you go for the roses and candy and cards or not, be sure to tell your loved ones that you love them!  Of course, you should be doing that EVERY day of the year!!!  Several times a day, IMHO! ;)

It is Tuesday, so it's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!   I've actually got 2 cards today.  Here's the first...


My paper, vellum, and ribbon were all from my scrap boxes.  :)  My heart is Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Hearts.  The "I Love You" is  Die-Versions Sweet Wordlets.   It's not visible in the pic, but the "I Love You" paper shimmers. 

Challenges...
Aud Sentiments #173 - Valentine or love
4 Crafty Chicks #337 - love
Glitter 'N' Sparkle #226 - Love is in the air!
Cuttlebug Mania - Roses are red (red as focus)

Here's our fun sketch for this week...



Our sponsor this week is Pink and Main!!   Lots of wonderful stamps and dies and papers!





I made the Valentine card to match the sketch exactly, but I made my second card with a fun Pink and Main set that I have...  just changed out the shape...  (which feel free to do with our sketches)


Supplies...
Pink and Main "Christmas Script" stamp and "Merry Christmas" die
Recollections Ebony embossing powder 
Recollections Cozy Lodge DP
Recollections paper bow (this bow matches the Kraft paper much better IRL... I'm a terrible photographer!)

Happy Sunday to you!  For those of you here in the Northeast, stay warm through this snow storm we're getting!!  (I must admit I'm happy with forecast of several inches!)

Craftyhazelnut's Christmas #320 - anything goes Christmas/opt. cute (I did AG)

Christmas thanks - CCC #5


Happy Sunday to you!  Today is Christmas Card Challenges #5!  My card(s) is a Christmas card while technically not a Christmas card.  Confused? ;)

I've got Christmas thank you cards to show you.  To me, these are as important as actual Christmas cards!


I made quite a few (even more than are pictured)...

 

I cut Kraft with Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics and embossed it with Darice Snowflake.  The strip is from Recollections Cozy Lodge.  The snowflake is Sweet n Sassy Small Snowflakes.  The sentiment is from Raisin Boat Thankful and cut with Sizzix Framelits Banners #2.


Please come over and play along!!  Only 330 days until Christmas!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!

In the meadow - TMS #387


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

I've got a winter card today.  This is more wintery than our real winter has been.  I love snow, but we don't have much.  :(  We're getting some snow/sleet/freezing rain today.  Kind of yucky, but here's a couple of cute snowmen to cheer you (and me) up!! 


They are cute, but this guy below should make you laugh... we always build a snowman with our first snow which came near the end of October this year.  We got very little!!  Look at this pathetic little guy!  Haha!


Enough whining... back to my card.   My DP is Recollections Cozy Lodge.  My image is From the Heart Stamps "In the Meadow Snowmen."  It was printed on Kraft and colored with Spectrum Noir Markers and a white Galaxy Marker.  All my panels were cut out with Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics.  


Here's our sketch for the week.  This is Melissa's favorite from last year...

  

Tuesday Morning Sketches is the sponsor this week again, so play along for a great stamp set!!


Challenges...
The Cutie Pie Challenge #107 - winter warmers (must be cute)  
Addicted-to-stamps #140 - "Baby it's cold outside"
