Tuesday Morning Sketches

It's been a wonderful beginning of the week in Denver. The weather is beautiful, a little cold, but the sun is shining. This week at Tuesday Morning Sketches we have a great sketch and a wonderful sponsor - Tiffany Doodles. I really like her digi's. Be sure to stop by her store and check them out. I think one of the things that I like about digi's is that you can make them small or quite large (for a scrapbook or a classroom bulletin board).

First, with the sketch. This is a fun simple sketch that you can dress up or down. Have fun with it. I did! I purchased a new paper pack from CTHM called Mayberry and I love the colors - they are so me. I wanted to go simple today. I have been off today and will be off tomorrow, but I realized that I really need to clean my house. I tend to ignore it and it's become overwhelming for me. So I am doing the responsible thing!!

I hope that you enjoy my card. I really love hearing your comments.

Thanks for stopping by and have an awesome day!

Tuesday Morning Sketches

Today at Tuesday Morning Sketches we have a challenge - Folded Frame. When I first saw this, I thought there's no way!! It was so amazingly simple. I loved putting it together. I wish I had started this becaue this is what I would've put together for my student's Valentine's.

Our sponsor today is StampFairy. Be sure to check out their blog and their great digi's.

Onto my card. I love the image I chose...but I"m not sure that I was too happy with the double side of the paper. I loved the brown polka-dots, but when I selected the paper I never thought about the other side. So I hoped I worked out the small details. I like how the card came out. I'd make this again, it was easy and it can be used with just about anything.

I hope you like it too! Would love to hear your comments.

Have an awesome day.

Tuesday Morning Sketches

Hello Crafters - We have another wonderful sketch this week. In addition a wonderful sponsor - Digi's With Attitude! Be sure to check out their blog and their wonderful images.

We are expecting a major snowstorm today and a high of 11 degrees. I think it's time for another snow day!! I want some more time in my craft room.

I went to card club this weekend and put together this wonderful layout and it really inspired me to make cards. Of course I need to get going on something for my students for Valentine's Day. I seem to always make these treats at the last minute!!

My card this time I wanted to break away from my "traditional" color pallette. I wanted bright bold colors. Well in the end it didn't turn out that way - I still made it my traditional green and pink, but I did add black! I think this card looks like a tuxedo. I flipped the sketch and the side flowers were made using this teeny tiny heart stamp. I stamped them five times and then put the brad in the middle so that you couldn't see where I didn't get them to come quite together.

Well I hope that you enjoy my card. I wish you the most awesome day. Thanks for stopping by.

Tuesday Morning Sketches

Today, Melissa has a wonderful sketch for us to cast our talented ideas upon and a wonderful sponsor - Inktegrity. Joni, my sincere apologies for not using your wonderful digis (I still don't have a printer...and I will not be replacing it anytime soon).

I have wanted to give my weekly volunteer a "Thank You" card for so long. She is so wonderful. She comes in every Tuesday to read with my at-risk students. I hadn't done anything to thank her - I have this fabulous calendar for her, but I never made a card. Well that is what I set my sights on to complete. It's done!! I just love how this came out. Jessica over at There She Goes took my idea for a "teacher" stamp set and made it. I am so excited to finally pull it out and use it.

I hope that you will come over and play along with us at Tuesday Morning Sketches - this month promises to have some wonderful challenging sketches. See you soon!

I hope you like my card. I can't wait to read your comments.

Have an awesome day!
