Tuesday Morning Sketches

I love this week's sketch, because it isn't a sketch, it's a color challenge. I was so excited to be able to ink up my new There She Goes Aim for the Clouds set, which I won by the way!! The colors in the challenge are Chocolate Chip, Light Orange, and Vanilla. I don't have space to keep a lot of SU paper colors on hand - I just like hoarding DP! So I use colors that come close.

I just love the way this card came out. I love the orange and vanilla DP. I colored the balloons with Chocolate Chip and Only Orange SU markers and used a blending pen. I am just tickled with this set and will need to come up with lots of reasons to put it to good use.

Please come join us at TMS...I'd love to see all your creations.

Tuesday Morning Sketches

This week's sketch was a lot of fun. I had so many visions running in my head! I had so many images that I wanted to play with and finally settled on a new set from Close to My Heart. I loved this DP paper from DCWV and I bought this pack for this one sheet.

I hope that you join us at TMS this week. I can't wait to see what you create.

Thanks for stopping by. I'm not feeling loved - I haven't had comments in a long time. Hope to hear from you.

Valentine's Day at School

Last Friday I celebrated Valentine's Day with my students. I loved the project that I put together for them. I made them Valentine's mail boxes - I kept them very simple because I know they will eventually hit the trash! I also made the kids an ATC Valentine's and they actually loved them. One of my students said, "I can't believe that you made these for us, especially since we were naughty while you were out sick!"

I cut the mail box from Cricut's Love Struck and I took the idea for the ATC from an advertisment from a Michael's card. I used my Cricut to cut the entire card. I was having issues with my Cricut cutting. It wouldn't cut lower than 5" and I finally got a hold of someone that cared and they replaced my machine and boy oh boy am I in love with my machine now.

Thanks for stopping by. See you tomorrow for Tuesday Morning Sketches.

You Are My Sunshine!

Once again, I am late for my Tuesday Morning Sketch post. I have the most horrible case of strep throat that I have ever had. Where I got it is beyond me. It started with a sore throat Saturday evening and by Sunday evening I was uncomfortable. By Tuesday morning - I had no voice, couldn't swallow without crying and finally called for a substitute for today and tomorrow. I don't ever remember it be this bad!!

I really like this week's card for TMS. I made it with my little sister in mind. She has always been my sunshine. Plus I have huge visions of spring in my head.

I hope you enjoy. I'd sure love to hear from you.

Celebrate Tuesday

Yesterday I was trying to teach my students about celebrations. Of course they came up with the "traditional" celebrations: birthdays, holidays, and so on. We as adults know, we can celebrate simple things like having a good hair day or making the perfect card. I choose to celebrate today. It's going to be 51 degrees and sunny. Although Punxsutawney Phil say his shadow today which means 6 more weeks of winter, as long as the winter is they way it's been here, I can celebrate that too! What do you want to celebrate??

Onto my Tuesday Morning Sketches card. I don't know where this image comes from (I don't remember) but this is Shy Kiki. I began to color her hair - I wanted brown. I colored her hair then reached for the Gamsol and I didn't understand why it was turning red. I colored her hair with Tuscan Red. Even though it wasn't what I wanted, I think it came out great!! I hope you enjoy.

Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear from you.
