Tuesday Morning Sketches #750

 Hello - thanks for stopping by for Tuesday Morning Sketches #750.  

I really cheated on this one but at least I stamped a little :) and I didn’t make the card exactly like the card kit.  It was supposed to be a a regular A2 card and I changed it to 5 x 7 plus added the ovals.  

This is a CTMH cut above card kit that was on sale a couple months ago for a steal and it was a bit before the big announcement that they are going out of business.  I think it’s sad even though I stopped being a consultant I was one for 25 years and still totally love their products. Just so many fond memories too!!

Well truth be known I’m sure I have enough supplies to last the rest of my life but it’s just so fun to get new stuff!

Now it’s your turn to enjoy yourself creating with us this week at  

Tuesday Morning Sketches!!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #749

 Ya think the weeks could go by just a little faster?  Yikes!  

I kept this week’s Tuesday Morning Sketches #749 super simple.  I wondered if should I layer more or should I add embellishments? Just decided, nope this is a case of less is more. I like it this way.  

I used stencils and it took be 3 tries to get it right - well “right enough” haha I really haven’t used stencils a whole lot and when I have it has normally been a background.  They are so fun though I plan on using them more - noticed I have quite a collection that hasn’t even been touched.  

So now time for you to enjoy creating your dressed up or dressed down sketch with us over at Tuesday Morning Sketches!!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #748


Yikes, I’m late for our Tuesday Morning Sketches sketch #748 this week, but life has been full and fun (thankfully) right now!  I’ve been looking forward to using this floral background die.  I cut it out of Tim Holtz watercolor paper and colored with Daniel Smith watercolors.   

YES - a new birthday die! I mentioned not long ago that I promised to get another one as soon as Simon Says Stamp had a sale and sure enough they had one shortly after :) YAY! I struggled a bit with it though because I was rushing and it is so tiny and fragile.  I cut the first one out of watercolor paper and painted it dark purple but didn’t think it showed up good enough so I cut a black one which is still hard to see but better.  I got the adorable little lady bugs from SSS also in my same order.  

The die is sized for a A2 card so I compensated for that by only putting scallops on the short sides for my 5 x 7 card.  I really like giving 5 x 7 size cards so much better than the smaller ones, except for the fun small mini slimline size.   I VERY much hope we get to have you join us this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches I can’t wait to see what you make!

This is very busy for sure but it is a busy blooming flower garden with cute little lady bugs something I hope to have in real life this spring/summer!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #747

So glad you’re here!  Thank you for stopping by for Tuesday Morning Sketches #747.

I have been hoarding these last two hot air balloons for a long time but decided they would be perfect for the elements on this sketch.  I was short on time and wish I did a little better job on the placement of my clouds.  I used a really old cloud stencil that I have had for years…probably 20 at least - I still really love it though!!

I’m hoping that you can join us for this week’s Tuesday Morning Sketches #747!  I’ll visit your creation soon :) I hope.
