Tuesday Morning Sketches #138

Good Morning Everyone -

It's a great day at Tuesday Morning Sketches. It's also the first day of Spring - yeah!! I hope that we don't get snow, but it's so cold here tonight you never know what will blow in. This week we have a fabulous sketch by DT member Kathy and a fabulous returning sponsor - The Stamping Boutique.

We are all very excited at TMS - we have reached 500 followers. Now if we could have that many participants how fabulous that would be! To celebrate 500 followers Melissa will send a randomly drawn winner a small prize package containing some ribbons, buttons and a few other fun little embellishments. I will also send the winner a surprise. Here's how to be in the drawing:

1) Play along with the challenge
2) Visit each of the DT blogs to leave a little love
3) Like us on our Facebook page (see sidebar link - on TMS blog)
4) Come back here to link your project and leave a comment here that says I DID IT!!

For my card today I needed a birthday card for my teammate. Her birthday was yesterday and I totally forgot! I really like how this card came out. I would've never thought to put green and purple together and I think it looks awesome! I also learned to use the Cricut Craftroom and pulled the ovals together to make one cut. I still need a bit of work in getting the scallops behind it to be a bit more tighter, but it works. 


I hope that you liked my card. I appreciate your stopping by. 

Have an awesome day!!
