Happy Tuesday morning everyone!
I hope you all had an amazing Memorial Day weekend!
Now that you're all rested up, how about a sketch?

We do not have a sponsor this week; this week it's all about having fun!
I hope you will find time to play along!

Here is this week's sketch....

and here is my card......

Sorry for the poor picture quality, it was dark by the time I had a chance to photograph my card.

I used a die and sentiment stamp from Taylored Expressions, Pieces of my Heart combo.
This will go to my sister and brother-in-law next week for their wedding anniversary.

We hope you take the time to create a card and share it with us at Tuesday Morning Sketches!

Be sure to stop by and say hi to the other DT members!!

Have a great week! God bless!!

TMS# 301 Happy Father's Day

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Are you ready to get your sketch on?!
We are back with another Tuesday Morning Sketch and another wonderful sponsor.
Our prize sponsor this week is Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps!
If you've never visited Stitchy Bear's, head on over there and check them out! They have a wide variety of digital stamps, something for everyone!

Now for this week's sketch....

and here's my take....

I used the digital stamp Golf Bag from Stitchy Bear.  I printed the image on cream card stock.
I decided to go with an uncolored image for my card.  I matted the image on brown card stock and stamped my sentiment in the corner.  After adding some strips of washi tape to the red mat, I attached the image with foam tape.  I then made some golf balls using Candi Dots.  Since I didn't have white dots, I covered the Dots with Gesso.  Once dry, I used a the smallest ball in the stylus set to create the dimples.

Thanks for stopping by! Please take time to stop by and leave a little love for the other DT members!

Can't wait to see what you create!

Welcome back to another fun week!  Deedee's Digis is our fabulous sponsor this week.
The DT has some awesome cards to share, so lets get right to it.

Here is this weeks sketch....

And here is my card....

I used one of the images from Deedee's set Doodle Tags.
Such a versatile set! I colored the present with Copics.  I then adhered some embroidery thread to the bow on top of the present.  I also added a small shiny heart sticker to the bottom corner of the present. Such a fun whimsical image!

If you would like to win some fun images from Deedee's, create a card using this weeks sketch and link it up over at Tuesday Morning Sketches by Sunday (May 17th) evening.  One random entry will be chosen to win.

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day!!
Got to spend a little time crafting and some time with my family today!  It's been a great Mother's Day!!
I am sharing a Mother's Day card I made for my mother.
Thanks to Viva laVerve Sketch #1 for May I was able to put this together just in time for Mother's Day!

I received some of the new Distressed Ink colors in the mail Saturday, just in time to make my card!  I used Verve's On Occasion set.  I used Abandoned Coral on the sentiment panel and I dyed my seam binding ribbon to match!   A few sequins and a flower button to finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you all had an amazing Mother's Day!

God bless!!

Happy Tuesday everyone!
We have another Tuesday Morning Sketch for you today.  It's a simple little sketch with lots of possibilities!

Our beautiful sponsor this week is Sami Stamps!
Sami Stamps has some beautiful designs and she is offering a $12 gift certificate to one random winner!

Here is this week's sketch.....


I used Sami's Beauty Roses for my card.  I colored multiple copies of the image with Distress Inks and a water brush.  I then fussy cute the images to create different layers.  The full rose has three layers, all cut differently so the layers pop up.  I tried to curl the edges of the petals to create a little more dimension.  I added some MFT Glitter Glaze to the rose.  Some seam binding ribbon and pearl accents finish off my card.

The other Design Team members have some beautiful cards to share with you.  Please stop by and leave a little love!
To be entered in the random drawing for the Sami Stamp gift certificate, link your card up over at Tuesday Morning Sketches before Sunday evening.
Can't wait to see your take on this sweet sketch!

God bless!
