Tuesday Morning Sketches #140

Good Morning Bloggers/Crafters - 

I just knew it was the calm before the storm. It was in the high 70s and low 80s all last week. Today, our high was a mere 45. The wind has blown in and the snow is coming!! We truly need to moisture, but geez all at once. 

Anyway, today at Tuesday Morning Sketches we have a wonderful sketch from DT member, Marie. Our sponsor is Doodle Pantry. My apologies to Doodle Pantry for not getting my act together to select a digi. I was on Spring Break last week and totally didn't think about a whole lot. I'm just making the deadline as it is with my card today. 


TMS-#143





Now, according to the sketch there should be two squares at each end, but remember it doesn't have to be taken literally - which only took me 3 years to learn this. I used the bow to represent the sentiment and the bottom square. I was also trying to go for a "vintage" look. I am not sure I managed it?? 


I chose this look because two of my favorite crafters, Heather Jensen and Beate Johns and a group of their friends have started a challenge blog of their own and their challenge this week is vintage. Their challenge blog is called Crafty Friends Challenges. Well I want to play along - I was lucky enough to play along side the two talented ladies when I guest designed at Flourishes and I love the idea of playing with them again. I selected From the Desk Of from Flourishes - I just love this set. I need to play with it more, it's just so fun to color. 


I hope that you'll stop by the rest of the DT to see their fabulous creations. 


I appreciate all your time and fabulous comments. Have an awesome day! 

Theresa

Blech - we're expecting either flurries or rain today. Spring seems to yo-yo here too, but it's still disappointing being teased with the higher temps!
I love the vintage look - nailed it! and the lovely mix of pinks, and that script background? How perfect for the image. Love that old-fashioned pen!

Theresa, this is so beautiful! Definitely vintage! I love that lace and ribbon and your coloring on the image is fantastic. I like the way you put the upper rectangle on top of the corner of the image. So creative. ....SNOW??? That seems so strange. It's in the upper 70s here every day now.
