Tuesday Morning Sketches #107

Two more days and my students will arrive with bright shining faces!! I am getting so excited to meet my new group of bright and talented children.

Today, we have a fabulous sketch and a great sponsor. Let's begin with the sketch. I tend to take my sketches very literally and this one leaves a lot to your imagination and creativity.  This week is not just a sketch challenge, but a judged challenge. If you want to be included in the judged challenge you need to follow the sketch and use the colors: blue, green, and white!! I loved visiting all of last weeks participant's blogs. There were so many amazing cards. I can't wait to see what you create with this week's sketch and color challenge.

I hope you'll visit our sponsor, Stamp Fairy. She has some great digi images. Her teddy bears are just darling.


I selected the cutest image for back to school - since that's what's on my brain right now!! I had a hard time keeping to the color challenge. I didn't want a blue or green bear, I wanted brown. Plus I just had to make the board black!! I kinda fought the challenge this week - but I was thankful that I found some combined green and blue paper with polka dots!! I was doing the happy dance because I wanted polka dots!!

Isn't this just darling?? Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have the most awesome day!!

What a sweet card! Your coloring is wonderful and you did an awesome job cutting out the little bear's tuft of hair. I like the black board. It looks like it's black, but covered in chalk dust.

Theresa, I love this. That image is adorable (going to go buy one, perfect for teacher cards). Your coloring is amazing, he looks so soft and furry. And love the dots and stripes, great card. Good luck with the first day with the students, an exciting time of year for sure!

So cute! I know I'd have been having the same fight as you - brown bear, black board...and when can going with polka dots steer you wrong?
Happy "first day" of school tomorrow :)
