Tuesday Morning Sketches #154


Hello Crafters -

It's been a fabulous week here in Denver. I have enjoyed the couple of days of rain and the cool weather. Too bad it's not going to last too long. I'll be in a class for the next three days, so at least I get to sit in a/c all day!! A luxury I don't have at home.

This week at Tuesday Morning Sketches we have a great sketch and it's judged challenge week which means there is a twist with the card. All you need do is use the sketch and include things with wings - the image, an embellishment, you name it! We also have the sweetest lady in the world sponsoring us this week, Korin from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.

For my card I selected the Praise the Lord Clear Stamp Set. I happened to really love the bird and had to jump at the chance to color this gorgeous bird. The paper comes from My Mind's Eye I used two different 6x6 pads - Portobello Road and Market Street aren't they just perfect. Many of my crafting friends ask, "How can you color the images before you select the paper?" I love to color and then I always seem to find the right paper afterwards. I think that's the fun part of crafting!! 


Here is our sketch. As you can see I flipped the sketch. I hope you join us this week. Do stop by the rest of the DT and leave some love. They have produced some fabulous cards to inspire you. 

Thanks for stopping by. Have an awesome day!

I always colour first too! I think sometimes it makes it a little difficult to pick out a paper, but it's a very rare occasion when I can't. I love these MME papers, especially that gorgeous "beautiful" calligraphy right above the bird. Hooray for AC & cooler temps!
