Tuesday Morning Sketches #359 & Cupcake Inspirations #365

Happy day after Independence Day!! 

I hope you play along with us over at Tuesday Morning Sketches # 359 it is a sketch by me.  I feel like a bit of a cave woman trying to create my sketches so they don't look the greatest but our amazing Design Team is so talented they "got it" and really provided a ton of inspiration.  I have a couple of tips below that may help you out. 

We're sponsored by Jennifer Tomasic, a fellow CTMH consultant.  She'll be offering this fun stamp set to the randomly drawn winner.

I'm also entering this one in the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge # 365 - flowers

I was really hoping it wouldn't look like a bikini top - lol.  

So I turned is sideways ;o)  But then I forgot and made my cards the first way - I'm just a dork sometimes!!

Ok and now for my tips....#1 remember that this is a great way to add a button to ruffle ribbon just right and not end up too bulky.  Just pull the ribbon through the loop behind your button before you tie it.  

#2 tip is keep an eye out for free embellishments. . .this ribbon was wrapped around a pair of pajamas I think or maybe some sheets I can't remember, but it sure feels good when you actually use something that would have normally ended up in the trash.

I just tied the knot right in the word. 

Thanks for stopping by, I'm looking forward to seeing what you create this week!
