Tuesday Morning Sketches

It's another wonderful Tuesday Morning Sketches day. My favorite stamp company There She Goes is this week's sponsor. See I had a great weekend. I was able to create three cards using my favorite stamps.

This week is a simple sketch with a lot of possibilities. I used my newest stamp set - What's Up Buttercup. In the Mother of All Blog Hops I saw some cards where people ruffled the ribbon. Well I had to give it a try. It was neat to do this, but no matter what I did I can't get the ribbon to stay put down or in place. It keeps popping off. I used a really tacky tape, glue dots, and I put Zip Dry on it a few minutes ago - we'll see. It has a great look, but not worth this much trouble.

My card takes inspiration from Trendsetter Sandra MacLean. I saw her card and although I didn't use the layout - I loved the paper. I had selected the paper a few weeks prior to seeing her card. I only wish I could get my nesties to work. I don't think I have all the correct sizes though. I think you need to have the classic and the small sizes in order for them to "nest" together!!

Well, thanks for stopping by. I hope you join us this week.
