Tuesday Morning Sketches #756

 Hello there!  Thanks so much for stopping by for Tuesday Morning Sketches #756.  This is a super fun collaboration with  the Twisted Sisters Challenge #166 - Let the Troubles Begin! 

It has to do with lost sock memorial day (unmatched socks and stuff).  I used a piece of yarn from a tattered sock that I just couldn’t bear to part with because it was a handmade wool sock that my friend actually knitted for me! I used two brands of paper some older cardstock from CTMH and patterned paper from the Through the Trees 6 x 6 pack designed by Melissa Lowry - for the Craft Consortium.  The fox I fussy cut - it was an unmatched bright white that I used Prismacolor alchohol markers to tone down the white so that it would match my Colonial White cardstock and the mushrooms on the patterned paper. 

I made this for my oldest granddaughter - she loves foxes and mushrooms so yay! This challenge runs for 2 weeks!  so you’ll have lots of time to create and play along with us at Tuesday Morning Sketches!!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #755

 Hi - so glad you’re here!

I guess I’m in feather mode still from last week based on this card I made for Tuesday Morning Sketches #755.  I was going for the faux shaker look and put sequins behind the feather printed velum but it isn’t see through enough so that was a fail.  I don’t think the card is too bad the way it is though. 

The embossing folder is from Joanne the velum is really really old from Close to My Heart and all the pretty minty teal card stock is from a batch of stuff that was give to me a couple years ago.  I really made use of things I’ve had at least 2 years…so I feel pretty good about it.

Now, of course it is your turn to have a go at Tuesday Morning Sketches #755. I’ll be visiting your artwork soon!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #754

Hi there and thank you for stopping by for Tuesday Morning Sketches #754.  

I’m preparing for a ladies get together to make cards and watercolor so this is the project we will create.  A feather was the most simple and fun thing I could think of.  

There are lots of ways you could approach this sketch from large images to just different patterned papers.  So have fun with us this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches!!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #753

Happy Tuesday!

It’s time for  Tuesday Morning Sketches #753, I kept this pretty darn simple. YES here I am using that same “happy” die again - sorry I just love it so much!! If you want to know I got it at Joann using a 40% off coupon so it was a steal!  

I used some older CTMH paper and just cut it in two and reversed the side for one part.  The ribbons are just from my stash, that I have had for years. 

I don’t know why but I just couldn’t tilt the tag in the other direction lol, how will you do your tag for Tuesday Morning Sketches this week??

Tuesday Morning Sketches #752

Gosh, I’m having a hard time getting my act together!  Nevertheless this is what I made for Tuesday Morning Sketches #752. 

I took way too much time on this and then I realized I could have pulled it off much easier by cutting a circle in the front panel and adhering any shape just large enough to cover the opening.  I took the long way around but it is because I cut the circle out of this really cool sail boat printed acetate and it didn’t show up very well on any color or simple patterned paper so I figured it would have to be white.  That posed the problem of how to attach it. Resolved that by cutting a circle the exact same size and then placing some embellishments across the edge to kind of anchor it in.  

I know there is so much to do but so little time so I totally appreciate you stopping by and I hope you have lots of snatches of time this week and that you are able to join us for Tuesday Morning Sketches #752!!

Tried another angle so you could see this waaaayyyy cool printed acetate (from Joann’s)

Tuesday Morning Sketches #750

 Hello - thanks for stopping by for Tuesday Morning Sketches #750.  

I really cheated on this one but at least I stamped a little :) and I didn’t make the card exactly like the card kit.  It was supposed to be a a regular A2 card and I changed it to 5 x 7 plus added the ovals.  

This is a CTMH cut above card kit that was on sale a couple months ago for a steal and it was a bit before the big announcement that they are going out of business.  I think it’s sad even though I stopped being a consultant I was one for 25 years and still totally love their products. Just so many fond memories too!!

Well truth be known I’m sure I have enough supplies to last the rest of my life but it’s just so fun to get new stuff!

Now it’s your turn to enjoy yourself creating with us this week at  

Tuesday Morning Sketches!!
