Tuesday Morning Sketches #442

Hello & happy Tuesday once again!

This week  for Tuesday Morning Sketches #422 I made cards for two of my siblings that each actually made a big move to settle in to new places for their retirement.  I'm the youngest by quite a number of years so it won't be my turn to retire for probably 10 years.  

The prize this week is this cute Pink & Main set you will get it just in time for my day St. Patti's Day. 

I really KNOW I am NOT a Saint but I have a friend who is an ANGEL and she has celebrated me with "St Patti's Day" on more than one occasion she is just the sweetest friend anyone could ever hope for, I wish everyone could have a friend like her in their life.  It's really cool that our hubby's are also good friends too - what a bonus. 

The frog will be "Enjoy your new pad".  I used my Explore to cut out the lilly pad and the stamp shape.  The frog is from the Close to My Heart Operation Smile stamp set called Punny Pals colored with CTMH water color papers and shimmer brush. The cute baby blue paper and tiny flower paper you see peeking out from the lily pad is from the Lullaby 6x6 pad by Pebbles. 

The moving day box is an old old set from CTMH that I have always loved called "Welcome to the Neighborhood".  It is colored with Prisma and ShinHan markers. The paper is from the Cute Girl 6x6 pad by Crate Paper.  I hope you get to treat yourself to some fun crafting time this week and join us at TMS :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. These are both such cute retirement cards, and I love the frog on the lily pad almost as much as I like those little houses working the background on card #2! Very cute ideas!

  2. That little frog is to cute! I like the way you did a "frame" behind him as part of the sketch.

  3. These are both super cute!!
    Duh... it took me a minute to catch on to "saint Patti"! :)

  4. Super fun cards! Love the lilypad in your first card and that puppy is adorable!
