Tuesday Morning Sketches #435

Happy first TMS challenge of the year, it is #416 revisited. We have Janice to thank for this great sketch.  I had a lot of fun with it.  

My first card was made with the January Stamp of the Month from Close to My Heart.  I used portions of the big stamp to make the little side tabs.  I colored with watercolor pencils and a shimmer brush - it is a speedy way to color, all I had to do is scribble a little everywhere I wanted color and then it spreads so easily with the shimmer brush.  Everything on that card is CTMH.


The lavender cards are made with some sweet paper that I picked up from my local little scrapbook store I made these two and so far one other but I think I have enough for one more so you will be seeing more of that in the next couple of weeks.  The sentiment stamps have been retired for a long time but the flower is current.  

I decided to renew my "rule" of always stamping on the back of my cards, inside as well as a matching envelope.  If you would like to know anything just comment.  :)

I hope you got to start your year off with some fun and that the fun continues with playing along with us this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches!





  1. What a wonderful trio of cards created from Janice's great sketch! I especially like the purple and green cards too, as that's my favorite color combination! I like your idea of decorating the card backs, inside, and envelopes too! Well done on all of these!

  2. Wow!! These are all wonderful!!

  3. Beautiful cards! I love the purple ones, too, but I think I really like that January stamp. So sweet. You’re really showcasing that embossing folder, too.

  4. Very pretty cards Patti! Love the way you did the inside too.
