Tuesday Morning Sketches #701

What to say what to say??  Well HELLO again for starters and it is already time for Tuesday Morning Sketches #701.  Where did the week go???

This sketch was more fun than I even expected, and I always expect to have fun making cards :)

I had a few minutes in between appointments one day week before last and strolled around Joann’s so of course I couldn’t stroll out of there with nothing in hand, lol.  This cute paper and matching little die cut bouquets were among the items that jumped in my cart.

Now it’s your turn to join us at Tuesday Morning Sketches!!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #700

It’s time for Tuesday Morning Sketches # 700!!  Yep you saw that right SEVEN HUNDRED!!! I have not been participating since the beginning but I have for a few years!! I just love our team and our friends who participate with us!! THANK YOU!!!

I received this cute Washi tape from my secret Santa for  Christmas and finally got it out and put it to use. Several of the designs look quite mermaidy (my own word) but I wasn’t sure it would be thaaat noticeable on this card but that is the first thing my colleague at work said when I showed it to her.  Oh well, it’s ok it does kinda limit my use for it though.  Not all the designs have the scallops so I’ll try making something next time without those.  

Without further ado…here is my card and I’m excited to see yours!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #699

BLINK!!  Here we are again time for another great sketch  from Tuesday Morning Sketches - it is number 699!

I purchased this Georgie paper in bulk from CTMH probably 8 or so years ago so I was happy to use some of it to make matching envelopes too.  Thank you once again for stopping by - get busy having fun with this nice and easy sketch.  See you soon at Tuesday Morning Sketches and when I get to visit what you create!!

Happy Tuesday!!!  

It’s time for our first new sketch of the year -  Tuesday Morning Sketches # 698!  

Can you believe it is March already?? It has just been sinking into my brain that I have three birthday boys and a birthday girl this this month in my family and also 2 friends and a coworker -whew!! Seven cards in one month - oh no!

I made the blue card first and then realized it was almost exactly like Donna’s haha! Great minds think alike right??!! Well I real quick made one with my favorite shabby chic paper that I have already used so much of but I still will be sad when I use up the very last bits. I had to change the orientation because I didn’t have enough of the background paper for a piece that would keep the pattern right vertically. The paper is Carta Bella Flora No.3 and my dies are CTMH.  

Thank you so much for stopping by, enjoy this sketch and I’ll visit your creation soon after you join us at Tuesday Morning Sketches this week!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #697

Hi there I’m so glad you’re here!

This is the last 2022 revisited sketch and it is Tanji’s favorite for Tuesday Morning Sketches #697.  I’m a little sad that they are done but there’s a lot of fun stuff coming up for the challenges this year! 

I thought about using this bug paper last week because I really need to be better about doing cards for guys because I need them but also because I wanted to participate in the Cards for Guys challenge but silly me I checked out the theme AFTER I made this card and it doesn’t fit, unless I could convince them bug hunting is truly a sport hahaha-well next time :) I bet my grandson could convince them, he has been obsessed with bugs for several years & of course dinosaurs too.

Along with this revisited sketch I revisited an old tool also - my crimper.  Do you or did you have one?

Ok now - your turn to play along at Tuesday Morning Sketches!!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #696

This will be short since I’m flying by the seat of my pants again!  Time for the second to last revisited sketch #696 from Tuesday Morning Sketches - this has been so fun.  I sprayed with water and crumpled these flowers and I’m not sure I’m glad I did it but that technique has been popping up in my head for a couple weeks so that’s what I did. 

I do appreciate you stopping by and I’m so looking forward to seeing what you create with us this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches!!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #695

Hi there - thanks for being here!!

I was extra super duper pressed for time to do this great Tuesday Morning Sketches #697 sketch.  I put it off too long and then I had company coming for dinner & the Super Bowl.  After I made it I thought wow I could make about 10 of them so easy, and I may just do that during the week. We are still revisiting last years favorites and this is Rachelle’s favorite.

I’ve had this pretty happy die & stamp set for probably a year and pretty sure this is the first time using it.  I’m in love with it lol.  It would be so easy to mass produce for all kinds of happy occasions.  

Thank you again for stopping by, I’m totally looking forward to seeing what you create with us this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches!!
