Tuesday Morning Sketches #374


Thanks for stopping by.  I feel like the run away holiday train is gaining speed even earlier than ever this year.  How are you feeling about the insane thought that Christmas is only 68 days away?  I tend to measure in PAYDAYS and there are not many!!  

Well I'm wishing you some crafting fun time, and I hope it includes joining in with us over at Tuesday Morning Sketches this week.  Our generous sponsor is our very own Jenée and one lucky paper crafter will receive this neat bundle:

Also we are welcoming a new member to the team, Janice Melton!  She is an amazing card maker and a faithful player of Tuesday Morning Sketches. Welcome Janice!!! Please check out what she and the rest of the team has created at Tuesday Morning Sketches.

Tuesday Morning Sketches #373

Well hey, it's the ol' broken record lady here again cackling "where'd the time go, just where'd the week go AGAIN??"  I really feel like I live in the twilight zone sometimes and it's an episode that every week is only a day long and so the whole year is only 52 days instead of 365.  :)  I bet some of you can relate!  

Ok so, here's my card for Tuesday Morning Sketches # 373.  I really hope to make more cards this week with this sketch because it's been so long since I've gone on a card spree.  

Our sponsor this week is A Day for Daisies and the prize is 3 digi's of your choice.  Get this...they have over 3000 images so good luck trying to narrow it down to 3 - lol.  I don't feel sorry for you though because I had to narrow it down to one!!  I picked this cute little artsy "Blooming Deer".  I really should have looked at the samples on ADD, if I had I would have colored it just like they did - I LOVED it!!  Oh well, here's my version, I love this little deer too even if I do say so myself. 

The papers are from "Oh Deer" CTMH kit, and I colored with Shin Hann markers from CTMH.  The buttons are from my stash, pretty sure they're originally CTMH. Also used a Sakura gel pens for the white and a Sakura glaze pen for the red holly berries.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a WONDERFUL week!!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #372

Hello & Happy Tuesday!

Boy I'll tell you if it weren't for challenges I may skip crafting for who knows how long and surely end up being crabby about it.  It's not always easy making time for a little fun for yourself but I highly encourage you to do so.  I did do lots of crafting this week though, I made or I should say I'm in the midst of making 30 baby shower invitations.  They are all the same design, I'll post it later this week.

This cute polar bear from Bugaboo makes me so happy!  He was fun and quick to color, even though I'm not the best at coloring.  I used Shin Hann markers for his scarf and nose and a couple of Prisma greys, one to outline the inside of him and the other for the outside.  His foot pads and the iceberg are Prisma markers also.  The papers are Close to My Heart Fundamentals and the die is Spellbinders.

Our sponsor this week for Tuesday Morning Sketches #372 is Bugaboo Digi Stamps.  The prize is 7 digis of the winner's choice wouldn't it be great to pick out SEVEN images!!  For free no less!  So, I really hope you head on over to Tuesday Morning Sketches and play along, as well as check out what the rest of our amazing team created.

Tuesday Morning Sketches # 371 & Cupcake Inspirations # 377

Hi everyone!  

Here's what I made for our Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge #371. It's an extra special week for me because I'm the sponsor too :) so I really hope you play along.  This fun sketch by Melissa was just asking (me anyway) to be made into a gift card pocket.  So guess what?  The prize is going to be a $5 gift card to Starbuck's and a $5 gift card to Hobby Lobby - two of my fav's.  I thought you could have a fun day spending those, then sippin' and craftin' what do you think?  If you don't have a blog and don't know how to link up your creation without one just let me know and I'll help you out.  

Thanks to the fun colors I'm also adding this card to Cupcake Inspirations # 377


Here's a close up so you can see the CTMH shimmer - it's addicting!!

Now it's time to head on over and check out the other fab creations from the rest of the design team and of course please play along!!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #368

Well happy Tuesday to you, I hope you had a safe and enjoyable Labor Day weekend.  Time for another great sketch by Melissa over at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  Our entire DT did a great job with this and I'm sure you will too! 

This week we're sponsored by one of our favorite returning sponsors, DRS Designs Stamps.  Home of some the best, deeply etched red rubber stamps.  The prize is a $10 voucher.

I made my card for my daughter in-loves birthday this week, she loves sunflowers so I hope these will suffice. I used a Martha Stewart punch and microbeads for the centers. 

Now it's time to head on over, get inspired, join the fun and WIN!!
