Tuesday Morning Sketches #607

 Hello & happy Tuesday & happy everything!!  

Once again for this Tuesday Morning Sketches #607 I got an idea in my head and had to try pulling it off.  I originally wanted to use the new Paper Hugs stamp set from CTMH but I didn’t order it so I had to pull out this sentiment from a past Operation Smile CTMH set.  I used a glove Cricut image because I didn’t really like any of the hand images. For the flower I used a MS punch and crinkled and layered a few - the leaves are from another MS punch and stem and stamped leaves from a stamp CTMH Stitched Florals Z3698 stamp + thin cuts set.  I thought I could maybe use the whole bouquet from that set but it was a little too big. Last but not least a mini tag from SU.  

Whew - used more than I thought!! I’m also going to enter this in the Color My Heart Challenge #444 Tic Tac Toe.  Which reminds me the patterned paper I used is from CTMH Hillside Cottage (Blue Belle plaid) and I also used Ballerina, Peach and Glacier card stock.

I kind of thought this sketch was a little out of the box and that I took it a little more out of the box so I’m excited to see what you make!!  Have fun!!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #606

 Happy Tuesday!!

As soon as I saw this Tuesday Morning Sketch #606 I saw a train. I quickly found one I liked in Cricut Access but I was lazy and tried to talk my self out of using an image that needed 6 colors of paper.  Only problem was I couldn’t talk myself into any other idea...so I tackled it and as usual it was much easier than I was making it out to be.  Still I procrastinated till the very last minute so I think I could have done a little better job but here it is — as is!!

I’m a little hesitant but I’m going to share something weird with you....I got hearing aids yesterday and ever since I started this choo choo train in Design Space I’m not even sure what prompts it but it does the choo choo sound in my hearing aids-they are blue tooth but I don’t even have them linked to this iPad so it’s kind spooking me out lol.  (Update hahahahaha well the choo choo noise was my hearing aids warning me the battery was low- what a coincidence!)

This is a great out of the box sketch by Andrea and the fantastic & diverse artwork by our design team will really help your imagination run with it.  Please stop by Tuesday Morning Sketches and the team’s blogs, leave some love & have fun!!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #605

 Hello, it’s here already - Tuesday again. I’ve been in the midst of a job change and it makes me feel like time is even quicker that the usual quick!  Plus as much as I feel that I’m doing the right thing I’m still having anxiety about it.

What better relief for anxiety than creating though right??  Unfortunately I have had much less time for that but what I do have I truly appreciate more than ever.

So with that said here is what I made for our Tuesday Morning Sketches # 605      I knew at first glance that I would either use vellum or embossing for the two little corner layers and I had no idea what I would use for the flower but gazing at my little bins I thought I should take a look in the one with paper flowers that I have for over 6 years!  I literally threw some away when I pulled them out due to being so fragile and full of cob webs lol!  

The plaid is from CTMH Hillside Cottage and the tiny dot is from the 6 x 6 Bright stack, it reminds me a little of a country quilt.  

I hope that your week goes well and that you get time to play with your crafty things and most of all play along with us at Tuesday Morning Sketches!!  Thank you so much for stopping by :o)
