Tuesday Morning Sketches #139

Good Morning Crafters -

It's a busy day today!! Here at Tuesday Morning Sketches we have a great sketch and a new sponsor. DT member Jessica designed today's sketch and our sponsor is My Creative Classroom. I've taken a couple of classes from them and have enjoyed them. Be sure to check out their blog and their list of upcoming classes. What's cool is that one person will win a free seat to a class of their choice.

For my card today I used a Workshop on the Go Kit called Mayberry. I bought this set and today is the first day it's seen ink. I feel like I'm just obsessed with buying and then I never use. I need to get better at this and use a lot more of the gazillions of stamp sets that I have.


I spent part of yesterday with TSG DT member, Karen Giron and she taught me how to take better photos and edit them. I hope this looks better than some of the photos I've posted. I think I still have some work to do because it's my old tired eyes having to make all the adjustments!! Either way, I like my card. It came out a lot better than I expected. 

Here is today's sketch: 
Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to stop by the rest of the DT to see their amazing creations. I can't wait to see what you make. 

Have an awesome day!

Theresa, this is wonderful! I'm with you, need to use all the stuff I "had" to buy. Love the sentiment with your image. Think your photo looks great too!

Karen Giron said...

Hello again! I love your card too and I'll have to bookmark this sketch and play along! Your photo looks perfect too :) It was so great meeting with you yesterday - I hope you have a fabulous crafty tour this week :)

Shopping is just too much fun for our own good sometimes :) I like your goal!
I find that photos are a process. I know I'm better than I was, but it takes time (and un-tired eyes sometimes!) to really improve. For what it's worth, I think this photo is great, especially considering the range of colours captured! Those are trickiest for me.

Oh I know what you mean about the too much stamp stash predicament! :) I have oooodles of digis (which is good they dont take up room) but I dont think I will ever have the time to use them all even once sometimes. I love my stamps and at least I remember to play with them as they sit in a big box in front of me!! :) lol.

Your card is smashing hun - really has a retro feel to it, and a lovely and fresh look.

Your card is photographed beautifully, Theresa, really brilliant and clear! Fun dies and your technique really makes them pop!!

What a super fun 'teacher's' card, Theresa. Fantastic dp and that center apple is spectacular. The pearl centered flowers are the perfect accompaniment for that apple.

Angela said...

So pretty and springy! Love the crisp satin ribbon and pearls...perfect embellishments!

Debbie said...

This is so pretty with all the nice colors toegther!!

Cheryl said...

Theresa, this is a beaut! That apple stamp is awesome, and would make a fab teacher card. Love that quilted paper, too. Your photo looks great, too, btw!

Dawn said...
