Welcome to 2014!! TMS #231

I am so excited to start a new year at TMS!  For the first few weeks we will be taking a look back at 2013.  Melissa has asked each design team member to pick a favorite sketch. We start off with Angela's pick, sketch #190 from March 19th.

Our sponsor this week is DeeDee's Digis!  I used the adorable set "Oh Hoppy Day".   Deedee's sets are wonderful, they include both colored and uncolored images and sentiments. 
 I chose to use the uncolored image and color him up with my Prismacolor pencils and gamsol.  I created my own patterned paper for the banners.  Die cut the sentiment with a banner die, then adhered it to a toothpick to create a little flag.  I used my craft knife to cut a slit by the kangaroos paw so he could "hold" the flag.  Used Spellbinders Wonky Rectangles to cut out my image and a layering panel.  Pierced the panel and popped the image up with foam tape.  Added some sparkly brads that I've had in my stash forever, to the top of the fishtail banners.  It's not hard to create a cute card with Deedee's images!
Now it's your turn!  Come on and play along with us at TMS!!
Here's some more wonderful inspiration from the rest of the design team:

Since this is my first TMS post since the new year, Happy New Year!  God bless!!


  1. Oh, super card. Having the roo hold the birthday pennant was quite clever and delightful. I also SOOOOO like the colors you've used and those glitzy brads and your self-made DP. Great work, girl!

  2. Very cute card Kris, I love these colours and the fun image.

  3. This is one of my favorite colors!!! I love the DP and how you pierced the wonky rectangle!! The sparkly brads are great!

  4. I just love what you've done with this adorable image! The flag is just genius, and those big sparkly brads are just dazzling! NJ!
