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. :(  



We'd love to have you play along with us this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches!

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,

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!
