Tuesday Morning Sketches #717

Hi and happy Tuesday or happy whatever day you’re visiting! 

I held true to my decision to use this stamp set this week.  A while back one of the guys from my department moved up to a different position and I thought a card like this would be great for that purpose so I’m ready next time it happens. 

Tuesday Morning Sketches #717 is by Melissa and I really like that the  accent pieces for this sketch are small enough that I can cut a 9.5 x 9.5 inch square to make an envelope from a 12 x 12 paper to fit a 5 x 7 card and still have big enough pieces to use for the sketch elements.

I truly love seeing what everyone makes for Tuesday Morning Sketches and this #717 sketch is no exception - hope to see your creation this week!! Have a NICE one!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #716

 Hello blink and here we are already time for  Tuesday Morning Sketches #716.  It has been so helpful but also a little challenging to stick with my decision about what stamp sets to use for the next few weeks.  If you scroll to the end  you will see a pic of who has been keeping me so busy!

This is CTMH Buddies - Ian click there for my dear friend Gail’s CTMH site. You can purchase it with or without dies, it is only $11.95 with dies!  This will be for my oldest grandson’s birthday.  He is a little old for a card like this maybe but I’m sure he will like it just because it was made especially for him.  I can hope anyway lol.

I know summer is super busy but I hope you have some craft time and we get to have you join us this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches!

l tossed all their toys in their bed while I was mopping and they found a way to squish in their bed with them in there lol.

Tuesday Morning Sketches #715

WOW another week bites the dust hey hey another week bites the dust woot woot!!  What else is there to say here we are again ALREADY another Tuesday, but the good thing about that is it is time for Tuesday Morning Sketches #715.

I can hardly believe it but I was organizing the other day and I made a little stack of the stamp sets I’m committing to using for the sketches for the next 6 weeks!!!  Think I’ll really do it?  

For this week it is the Unicorn Dreams stamp and thin cuts set from Close to My Heart. I mostly got the set because I want to make little card sets for some of the little ones in my life. I sure do hope I really do it.

Speaking of Close to My Heart . . . I can’t even believe I’m saying this  (kinda) but after 26 years I am officially just a “Former Consultant”  wow - it feels kinda crazy.  Half the time I feel sick and sad and the other half ok and and excited to just focus on whatever whenever.  

I used some older paper from a different unicorn themed CTMH paper from a few years ago because I had two sheets and I really want to make some scrapbook pages also.  Anyway I wanted to dedicate an entire sheet of patterned paper to the card and matching envelope.  I hope you like!

Now your turn to play along with Tuesday Morning Sketches #715!! Really looking forward to seeing what you make!

The lighting is bad in the second photo but at least you get idea of how it looks :)

Tuesday Morning Sketches #714

Hello & happy Indepencence Day!!’

Due to lots to get done for kids coming I’ll just keep it short.  Here is what I made for Tuesday Morning Sketches #714.  The bottom one has the seagull that I first colored with Prismacolor pencils and Holbein Melz but the paper pilled a little which was barely noticeable in person but when I put on computer and could see it up close and personal I didn’t like it so I just colored a new one and layered it over the old one.

Can’t wait to see what you make this week for Tuesday Morning Sketches!! I hope you have a fabulous holiday and - whoa can you believe it’s July already??
