Tuesday Morning Sketches #620

Oh happy day to you whatever day it is that you’re visiting + thanks a TON for stopping by to check out what I made for Tuesday Morning Sketches #620!  

I made a couple little goofs on this that if I had time to correct &/or make more I certainly would have.  I’m not going to point them out like I usually would though haha!!  So there - how is that for turning over a new leaf?  Just accepting it and moving on!  

This is all current CTMH product and if you have any questions just ask :o). I made it for my almost 10 year old granddaughter who is struggling with her self confidence a bit these days.  If you have ideas as to how a grandma can help out with that across the miles I’d sure love your suggestions!!

In the mean time you’ll be inspired by our team creations and I’m sending you good vibes to enjoy every little snatch of crafting time you can - I’m sure trying to!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #619

 Hi hi hi!!  

Thanks so much for being here!  Here is what I created for our Tuesday Morning Sketches # 619.  I free hand cut the flower petals from Tim Holts distress watercolor paper and punched the circle for the center.  Then I painted them on the front and back so that I could curve the leaves up a little.  I also free hand painted the grass and flower stems/leaves.  The little snail was an impulse purchase that I picked up in the little value baskets at the checkout line at Joann a few weeks ago.

So that’s my all occasion clean and simple card!  I totally love the cards our entire team created so I really hope you have a chance to visit their blogs too if you haven’t already!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #618

 Hello!  Here we are again another week bites the dust ;o/  I’ve had some fabulous guests visiting for a little while and they are no trouble at all but it doesn’t really take much these days to get me behind.  So I’m worse than my normal scatterbrained self lately anyway on top of that.  Maybe I can blame it on the hot flashes which are more like hot floods that last way longer than a flash that is for sure. I dunno!

However I really enjoyed making this card for Tuesday Morning Sketches #618. I used Tim Holts Distress Resist Spray (for the very first time) and Distress Oxide inks on the background.  The flower I drew just doodling a while back with my small set of Windsor Newton watercolor pencils.  Oh man I think that is what I used it may have been Albert Durer colored pencils because I got them both around the same time.  Anyway I was just doodling and decided to save it to use some day and wha la.  

This is a really easy sketch and you can apply a ton of fun ideas to it. I’m looking forward to seeing what you create.

Have a terrific week!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #617

 Hi there!!  

Thanks so much for visiting!  When I saw this weeks Tuesday Morning Sketch #617 by Andrea the first thing I thought of was these doilies.  I must admit I impressed myself just a little when they were right in the first place I looked in my organized chaos studio!!

Everything other than the stamp set has been in my stash for quite awhile.  The stamp set is CTMH’s Queen Bee and I’m really looking forward to doing more with it, although I was really excited to get it for a certain purpose and I can’t even remember what that is at the moment lol!!

I always look forward to seeing what you all make so as always - ENJOY!!! Have a fantastic week!
