Tuesday Morning Sketches #113

Good Morning Crafters - what could go wrong, has gone wrong. I got home last night and was working on today's card for Tuesday Morning Sketches as I was coloring the lights went out! They went out for three hours. I began coloring at 6:30 - oh do I hope I get up in this morning!! I sat by candle light and flashlight coloring my image.

This week TMS is being sponsored by none other than my favorite company - There She Goes. In addition Melissa chose my sketch to use today.

For my project today I selected one of the most adorable sets Pumpkins on the Vine. I think it's just totally sweet! Since Fall is my favorite season I couldn't wait to ink this darling little gal up. I hope you like the coloring I thought it came out pretty good for coloring in the dark. I did pull out the sewing machine to sew the bottom and top. I managed to get the top done and as I was doing the bottom the electricity went out again after waiting 3 hours. Needless to say my sewing machine is lucky it didn't get thrown out the window for jamming on me - so I only got the top sewed. I told you what could go wrong, went wrong.

Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to check out the rest of the DTs work - they have shown off quite a few TSG images. Have an awesome day!!

Aren't we a pair? When it rains it pours with those little things that drive us crazy. {{{{sending hugs}}}}

For all the foolish things that conspired against you, I think this card turned out adorably! I especially think the colouring is amazing given your (lack of) light sources :)

For all that trouble, your card is beautiful. Love the sketch this week.

How frustrating! I think it still turned out just darling. When we were out of electricity for a week due to the tornadoes I just manually turned the wheel on my sewing machine. It took a while, but it worked. :)
