Oh Christmas Tree

Who's ready for another fun Tuesday Morning Sketch?
We have a great sketch to get you going on your Christmas cards.  With this simple sketch, you can mass produce some wonderful cards.
Our sponsor this week is the fabulous Dies R Us! 

Who couldn't use some new dies for their holiday cards?!

Get ready to play with this weeks sketch!

Looks like the camera gremlins have been at it again! This card looks so much better in RL! The green embossed strip is more of a muted green, not such a bright green and the Noel ribbon is really a rich burgundy color, not the brown that it seems to be in the picture.  I used my Versamark pen and white EP to add some "snow" to the tree branches. A little brass buckle was added to the ribbon for accent.

I decided to make another card using this sketch.  I used an older Stampin Up set to create these fun Christmas trees.  I am loving the aqua and grey color combo this year! I used silver EP powder on the trees then fussy cut them out.  Used Distress Ink to add some color to the snowflake strip.  A little bit of tinsel ribbon adds to the fun!

Now it's your turn to play!
Link up your card over at Tuesday Morning Sketches for a chance to win a gift certificate to Dies R Us!

I would like to wish everyone a very happy and blessed Thanksgiving!  I hope you take the time to enjoy the day!!
Give thanks to the Lord for he is good!
God bless!!

Here's the awesome sketch we get to play with...

I used the HO from the Sweet Warm Ups Outline set.  I used the HO x 3, to create this fun little panel.  I used Distress maker to color in the stripes.  The papers are from DCWV's Christmas Basics stack that I picked up last year on clearance.  I opted to use some ribbon for the fishtail banner piece.  I picked up the ribbon at our local dollar store.  The cute Santa hat brad is from a kit I purchase years ago.

Anniversary Wishes

Sharing an anniversary card I made for my brother and SIL.  
Thanks Verve for the great sketch that gave me the inspiration for my card!

I used the swirl accent from Verve's Peace on Earth stamp set and the Anniversary Wishes stamp from the On Occasion stamp set. 
Inked up the doily for a vintage look.  Die cut and embossed two hearts, one from pink card stock and one from vellum. Added some twine, button and some Shine Bright sequins, to finish off the card.

Thanks for stopping by!
God bless!!

Pumpkins and Leaves

Who's ready for a fun Tuesday Morning sketch?
This week we have a great sketch, with lots of possibilities!
It's also our judged week with a twist!


This week we are sponsored by Digital Delights by Loubyloo!
Welcome to your one stop shop for all your digital stamps, paper piecing and digital products which are instantly downloadable. We also have a wide range of digital papers and cut files for all your crafting projects. Our low prices reflect our belief that crafting should not only be fun but affordable too!!

Now for the sketch -

I used the image Tiny the Turkey to create a fun Thanksgiving card.  I colored the image with Copics.  I am still learning how to use these markers so my coloring is not the best.  Created the pumpkin using three ovals I punched from white card-stock and then colored using Distressed Inks.  Some burlap for texture and some falling leaves finish off my card.

Remember to add some Pumpkins and Leaves to be eligible for this weeks prize!

Be sure to visit the other design team members for some wonderful inspiration!
