Christmas in July and Tuesday Morning Sketches

Good Morning Bloggers,

Well it's going to be 95 degrees in Denver today and Tuesday Morning Sketches is celebrating Christmas with DRS Designs. This is our final week and once again you can select any of the wonderful sketches from this past year. For my design I chose sketch #12.

I used the DRS Design stamp set Ornaments Galore. I love love looking at Christmas balls. I have to say that when Michael's puts out all the ornaments I just love going over and gazing. My favorite are the red, clear, and iridescent ones. I just love how all of them just shimmer.

I hope you enjoy my card. I have to say it was incredibly difficult for me. I am not in the holiday spirit!! I am trying to gear myself up to going back to school - ugh! I'm sure all you mother's out there are so looking forward for the next few weeks to go by quickly. My last day of freedom is August 5th and the training and the meetings and the registration and the classroom set up begins. My students will arrive on August 19th with bright shinning faces wanting to know, "How many days 'till Christmas break?" It never fails, one student will always ask that question on the first day of school!

Thanks for joining us in our month long celebration I have absolutely loved looking at all of your designs. If your a TMS follower, I hope you'll become my follower and enter yourself for my blog candy which I'll be drawing for on August 1st.

Have a fabulous day!

Theresa, this is Absolutely Gorgeous!
Your design paper is one of my favorites and I did stash some to use this year..Love the matching ornament, very creative using the DP for the inside.

Super fabulous job Theresa! I think the ornaments are wonderful!! I love that paper, too, I think I have a couple packs of it that I've been hoarding.

I know I am anxious for the kids to go back to school - they're bored out of the minds. Worse this year since they don't know anyone here yet. It'll be good for them to back into a routine.
