TMS #254 with Doodle Pantry

Are you ready for another Tuesday Morning Sketch?!
Melissa has a fun sketch this week, I love the edge element!
Our wonderful sponsor this week is Doodle Pantry.  They have so many wonderful digital stamps, both colored and uncolored!

Here is this week's sketch -

Any here's my take on the sketch -
I used a maze from Doodle Pantry's digital set Mini Mazes.
I needed a thank you card for a wonderful friend who helped me so much during my son's recent graduation open house.  She is totally amazing and I thought this would be a great play on words.  I used a heart shape instead of  an oval.  I cut the maze heart out by hand and then used my scalloped scissors to create a mat.  I inked up the heart mat with Victorian Velvet distress ink then embossed with a Swiss dot  embossing folder.  For the edge element I die cut the front panel with MFT's snow drift die.  I added a fishtail flag for my sentiment.  A little inking around the edges and some string and a few buttons and wallah! 
Thanks for stopping by, please stop by the other Design Team members blogs and leave a little love, they have some amazing creations to share with you!

Can't wait to see your take on this fun sketch!
God bless!

Graduation Congratulations!

Fast post to share a graduation card I created with help from the sketch over at MFTWSC.
A few MFT banner die cuts and this card came together rather quickly!  Needed quit a few graduation cards this spring and I still have one to go!  
Simple and quick!
Thanks for stopping by my little blog!
Hope you come back and visit soon!

TMS #253 - Make it Masculine

Happy Tuesday everyone!
My blog has been a little quite lately.  My life has been very busy, but hopefully it is back in the slow lane for a while!

I hope you're ready for another fun challenge from Tuesday Morning Sketches!

This week is all about Debbie.  Uh - no.  All from Debbie.  That's better.  She is sponsoring this week so it was only fitting to play along with one of her sketches, too.  And the added twist....  Masculine.  With Father's Day quickly approaching this would be a great jumping off point.  Or,  you can create something special for a special guy in your life.  Big or small.

Check out this week's awesome prize!
Prize: Spectrum Noir "Essentials" 6 marker set
Here's the sketch Debbie created for us....

And here's my card this week...
I love this fun digital stamp, All About Dad , from Sassy Cheryl's.  Wouldn't any Dad love to spend Father's day napping in a hammock? 
Colored with Prismacolor pencils and a little Distress marker.  Stamped  the word Enjoy on a tag made with a Sizzix die.  Tied the tag to my ribbon with some string and popped the snoozing Dad image up with foam tape. A little inking around the edges and my card was done.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I can't wait to see what you create!

Remember to make it masculine to be eligible for the prize!
