Tuesday Morning Sketches #464

Hey there so sorry I missed you last week!  I have had company or have been traveling soooo much more than usual this summer - it's been nice but I'm sure I will appreciate having my ol' routine back when I'm finally done with it all. 

I am so jealous that I don't get to have a chance to win this OMG CUTE set!!!  Take a look below and play, play, play!!  I can hardly wait to see what you make.

Here is what I made for Tuesday Morning Sketches #464 - since I'm in a hurry (what else is new) I won't add much info but of course if you ask a question I'll be more than happy to answer!! I have been busy but I have so many busier friends/family members who have moved this summer so I'm sure they are even more busy!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #462

Heeellllllloooooo!!  I am here, I am here, I am here although late!  That reminded me of Horton Hears a Who.  Well anyway, I continued my anti-pinko theme another week :)  I thought this weeks Tuesday Morning Sketches #462 just yelled "shaker card" at me and up until this one I haven't made one for years so it was really fun.  

I based the colors on the sequins that I had that were not pink, so went for the Crystal Blue and Black route.  I'll forgo details unless you have a question I will be happy to answer but for now I gotta hit the hay.  I stayed up late talking to a friend in AZ last night and completely forgot about posting this so that is why I'm late.  I was getting ready for bed a few minutes ago when I remembered. Funny how our memory just chimes in when it feels like it huh?

One little tip that may be helpful is that the stripes on my paper were brown and I used a Sharpie and a T-Ruler to make them black instead.  Keep an eye out for adjustments/enhancements you can make to DP that you already have if it is just not right for what you need.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for stopping by - have a WONDERFUL week!

P.S. I would love you to play along and I would love you to leave my team/friends some love so happy visiting our design team and our participants.  I think its just the coolest thing when someone unexpectedly pops in and leaves a comment so I'm trying to do that a bit more.

TTFN  :)

Tuesday Morning Sketches #461

Happy Tuesday Morning Sketch Day!

This is what I made for TMS #461 :)

Okay this is card number 4 that I haven't had pink for the main color!  Sorry this is shadowy but  I tried hard to get rid of the shadows much to no avail.  I hope this will be good for a house warming - do you think it will?  

This scalloped oval just happened to be on my desk and it was perfect for the sentiment.  I used my antistatic bag on it before I embossed it but I still ended up with more stray powder than I realized and not wanting to try and unbury my die to do a new oval (who knows where it is under the piles I have in my craft room at the moment) I covered it with my shimmer pen and it worked great in real life but for the photo not so much. 

Here is what I used:
Paper - CTMH Central Park 
Stamp - CTMH God's Blessings
Twine & Flower - old stash

Thanks so much for stopping by, I can hardly wait to see what you make!

P.S. You'll really want to play - the prize is:

Tuesday Morning Sketches #460

Happy Tuesday!  It's time again for another FUN sketch - #460 at Tuesday Morning Sketches :)

I feel like I could have done a little better with this if I didn't end up so pressed for time but all things considered I'm happy with it considering the amount of time invested (not being toooo much).   It sure was fun to make & I hope you enjoy creating with this sketch as much as I did.  I can hardly wait to see what you make!

Have a great week and thanks so much for stopping by!
