TMS # 251 Awesomesauce!

Welcome back! 
I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.  It went by way to fast!  Which means graduation is just around the corner and this Mom is NOT ready!

Well, on to this week's challenge!   Our sponsor this week is Zap Pow Designs.  Zap Pow Designs is a new digi shop owned by two really fun gals, Lizzie and Cassandra.  These designs are fun and a little cheeky. Our sketch is by Melissa this week and I found it a little challenging.


I used the image Your are Awesomesauce!  Love this image and totally cool sentiment!  I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol.  A few die cuts and a little inking and embellishing finished off my card.
I really struggled with my banners for some reason.  Ever have those times where you just are not happy so you try again and again until you finally just go back to your original design?  Yep, that's what I did with those banners!  Not sure how much time it took to finally give up and just go with the original!  Too long!

Be sure to stop by the other team members blogs and check out their wonderful cards!

Jenee (Yea! look who's back!)

Sure hope you play along with as at Tuesday Morning Sketches!  I would love to see your take on this weeks sketch!
Thanks for stopping by!

I used the digital stamp, Narrow Boat.

I colored the image with my Intense pencils and water brush.
This card came together rather quickly.
A layer of burlap, a sentiment tab and a few silver stud accents.  I added a little distressing around the red background layer.

FWF with LOL

Can't believe I actually had time to play with my new Unity LOL stamps.  I'm loving the May kit!
Seems like forever since I've had time to enter something in the Friend with Flair challenge.
 My middle child is graduating from high school in a couple weeks.  So very proud of him!  I've been busy getting things ready for his graduation reception, I haven't had time for much else.

I used the sketch from the new Be Inspired challenge.

Used Distressed Inks and my water brush to color the flowers.  Stamped the sentiment with Versamark and heat embossed with brown EP.  Inked up the edges, added some twine and a few tiny pearls.
Hope you like it!
Thanks for stopping by!  God bless!

Anniversary Wishes and May Flowers

Happy Tuesday Morning!
Hope everyone had a happy and joyful Mother's Day!
We are back again with another great sketch for you to try.
Melissa is our gracious sponsor this week.  She is donating a $10.00 gift certificate to Ellen Hutson LLC!
Ellen Hutson is a paper crafters paradise!
Remember this is a twist week, so be sure to add some May flowers to your project to be eligible to win the prize.
Here's my take on this weeks Tuesday Morning Sketch:

My first thought when I saw this sketch was a cut away front.  So I trimmed about a half inch off the front panel, then used a paper punch to add a scalloped border.  I added some glitter to my scalloped border and some Wink of Stella glitter to the flower.  Here's a close up of the layered flower that shows the glimmer.
Added three butterfly Dazzle stickers embellished with some pearls to finish off the card.
The stamps are from Verve's On Occasion set.
Need a little more inspiration?  Check out what the other designers created.  So many different and beautiful takes on this weeks sketch!

Remember to add the twist - FLOWERS - to be eligible to win this weeks prize.

King of the Grill - TMS #248

Can you believe it's time for another Tuesday Morning Sketch!
Time sure flies!
We have a great sketch for you to play with this week, and a super sponsor!  DeeDee's Digis is our sponsor this week, go check out her wonderful digi store, I'm sure you will want to play along for a chance to win some of her fabulous images!
Now here's the sketch
For my card I choose Grillin' and Chillin' to create this Father's Day card for my DH.  Since I gave him a smoker grill last year he has become a regular King of the grill!  Which is good for me since he does more cooking now!  I printed the hot dog and condiments small so I could use them as accents.  the images were colored with Prismacolor pencils.  My mojo seems to be a little off lately, I  think this card needs a little something but just can't figure it out.

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to check out the other team member's cards and leave a little love!

Jenee is stepping down as a design team member, :(  Please stop by and wish her all the best!

Me sure to link up your project by Sunday May 11th for a chance to win!

Checking in

Quick little post to share a card I created using the sketch from My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club #174

Great sketch for a quick card. I flipped the sketch and used some cute little chicks, colored with Prismacolor pencils and popped up with foam tape.  Used paper from my ever growing stash.
Thanks for stopping by!  God bless!
