Tuesday Morning Sketches #424

Hello & hold the door, it's Tuesday again already!

TMS #424 was created by our fearless leader Melissa Craig. Our team is sponsoring a $10 gift card - your choice Hobby Lobby or Starbucks. 

I am slowly getting a little better each week.  I clearly need to get into some type of exercise routine.  My age seems to really be giving me the creaks & groans lately, and I just haven't bounced back from this little virus as quick as usual.  I feel like I jinxed myself by proudly thinking, I haven't caught anything for just over a year.  Then bam - caught something.  


Guess I'm still on a Red, White & Kraft kick.  I love that combo.  I decided to start getting ready for a little card making gathering with some friends this month.  I think they will like this.  All supplies are CTMH and all are still available except for the corrugated stars they've been retired several years but I have 100 of them so wanted to create something with those.  I think my fav thing I used is the Confetti Stars embossing folder


Thanks for stopping by, we'd love to have you play along with us this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #423

Hi everyone,

Low and behold I will have my post up on time this week!  I'm so under the weather and then with all the sadness going on in our crazy world.  I'm just going to make it short and sweet.  I'll be praying for safety and tons of kindness in the lives of all of you.

I struggled so much with my printer the night I created this and then I realized that I used a cute cute image that is not available at the moment at our sweet sponsor Bugaboo Stamps - but they have been bringing over images from there old shop right along.  You will love picking out 4 free images if you win. 

I just feel like complaining about anything as petty as my printer is so shallow but I was frustrated with it and then woke up to the news about the LV shooting and things have a way of getting put into perspective. 

This week I'll be trying to focus on Philippians 4:8 -

"And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise."

Tuesday Morning Sketches #421

Hi everyone,

My mind hasn't really improved (obviously since I'm late again), but I'm going on vacation for a few days to see my grand babies - that will make everything all better right?  Plus, I'll have an extra day to get on top of some much needed organizing and that ALWAYS helps too.  

This sweet kitty image came from our sponsor this week...  All Dressed Up!  Play along for your chance to win 2 images of your choice. The flowers are from them also but discontinued so if you love something be sure and snag it while you can.








The embellishments are old from my stash and the rose embossing folder is new from CTMH. 

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to go check out the creations from the TMS DT... I apologize that I failed to introduce the newest amazing member of our team Carol!! Please stop by and tell her welcome (even though it's quite late). We're sad that Wanda has had to step down. :(

Tuesday Morning Sketches #420

Hi everyone,

I'm seriously getting a little nervous about my memory and staying on top of things.  I think it's a hormone issue.  I was just thinking oh I need to get my post ready for tomorrow, and then I noticed that we already have entries - wait what's today???  OMG I'm crazy - only hope I have is that I've been told if you're really loosing it you don't know it.  I hope I'm just going through a phase.  

Maybe it's also all that's going on in the world and all the news to watch and people to pray for.  I only wish I was doing more praying than watching.

Well without further whining here are my cards, I was so proud to finally do two again.  I had a problem in that I couldn't find my DRS stamps so I didn't want to use any other brand of stamps so these are actually "anti-stampo" cards you know like antipasto salad.  Ok if I don't shut up soon you will think know I really am crazy!!  If you have questions just ask and I'll try and remember what I used - lol. 

DRS Designs is our wonderful sponsor and they have tons of great stamps so head on over and check out what the rest of our On Top of Things Best Team Ever made (I hope they don't disown me).   

Also, please have fun, pray and be safe!!

Bunches of blessings,

Patti
Wanda

Tuesday Morning Sketches #419

Thanks for stopping by I hope your Tuesday is Terrific!  I am really really going to try and set aside some time this week to create another card with this sketch because this isn't anything like I thought I would make.  I am happy with it I just had something much different in mind.

I set my stop watch and it took me 27 minutes to make this.  I'm sure I spent at least 5 minutes of that looking for the hole punch that I wanted to use for the top of the tag. I had watercolored the paper a while back just playing around.  For the tag shape I just went through my odds & ends basket and trimmed one side of it and folded over a scrap of my water colored paper for the hole reinforcement, I have a weakness for those, I think they're such a cute little detail.  

The stamp is one of my new current CTMH favorites.  I used it last week too.  The punch for the loopy edge is Martha Stewart, everything else is CTMH, watercolors, watercolor paper, ink and ribbon.  Oh but the little epoxy flowers are Doodle Bug from my local SS. 

Thanks again & I hope you get to play along with us!
Wanda

Tuesday Morning Sketches #418

OMG I feel terrible,  I'm so late posting I JUST realized that I didn't set this to post.  Life these days!!! Please accept my apologies.  I made this with new CTMH paper and a new FAV stamp set by CTMH also.  You will def be seeing more of this.  

I've been working long hours and had company plus didn't realize how much time it took to give stuff away.  I have offered a few large items to my wonderful work friends but arranging for washer/dryer and a huge dresser to be picked up has been a little time consuming. 

I hope YOU have time for more fun this week than I do!!!! 

Have a wonderful one!
