Tuesday Morning Sketches #616

Hi all!!  Thanks for stopping by! 

Here are the quick cards I made with  Tuesday Morning Sketches #616  I was happy that I thought of getting out my Dymo label maker after it has been neglected for many years!! Truth be known I barely used it at all - ever!  I probably don’t need to keep it around but at the moment I have room for it so I’ll keep it for a while.  I got it because of the novelty of being able to put the CTMH white core card stock in it but it just so happened that the color of labels I had matched this Party Time paper.  

For the blue version I just used part of the zip strip that comes on the paper for the sentiment. 

Your turn now to have fun!!  I’ll check out what you make for Tuesday Morning Sketches #616 real soon!!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #614

 Hello, happy Tuesday or whatever day it is that you visit!! Thanks for stopping by!! 

This week’s sketch Tuesday Morning Sketches #614 is by Melissa and it was really fun.  I didn’t do at all what I thought I was going to do and I totally got it in my head as horizontal and I think that turned out ok even though it was just due to being sidetracked.  

I was really excited to make something with these beautiful papers from the new CTMH July - August catalog.  I went ahead and made a second card with the part that the circle was cut out of also.  I love this paper with the white flowers and lemons so much I could really imagine using it in my house if there was wallpaper like it.  

The whole team was so creative with this sketch I hope very much that you can go visit and leave a little love on their blogs. Most of all I hope you are able to play along so I get to see what you make!!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #613

 Happy Tuesday - I missed you!!  Yikes, I went through a little spell of letting myself get overwhelmed.  It started with redoing our backsplash and I was totally obsessed with it - it was sooooo much harder than I had hoped and I was thinking about ways to resolve issues and blah blah blah every moment that I wasn’t sleeping or working.  

Then I had a happy happy thing happen!  My brother and sis-in-love visited but I had a huge mess from working on the backsplash and he came earlier than expected at the last minute.  Spending more time with them was more important than cleaning my house but it still affected me, maybe the backsplash followed by fun company while still working full time at a new job I’m getting used to wouldn’t overwhelm most people but I guess I’ve just been too close to the edge anyway. On top of that I feel dumb having feelings like this when nothing serious has even happened.  I do pray for all who are going through real issues!! 

I truly enjoyed this sketch more than I expected at first glance.  I just bought this paper at Joann yesterday.  I do NOT need paper at ALL!!  I’m sure that I have more than I can use in my lifetime but I really loved the vintage pattern with those tiny birds and butterflies.The stamp is from a recent CTMH stamp of the month and I used grape ink.  

Somehow I made a tiny space in my chaotic messy craft room to pull this off.  I literally can’t look at my space without a certain level of nausea, but I am glad I did because I feel a little better already. I wish you lots of calmness and happy crafting!!
