Happy Tuesday Morning!
It's time to get your craft on!
We have a fun sketch this week and an adorable sponsor.
This week, we're sponsored by Sherri Baldy Designs.  We are so thrilled to have them back to sponsor TMS and I'm sure you are, too.  Sherri's images are adorable, be sure to stop by her Etsy shop.  She has a HUGE selection. 

Now for this week's sketch....

Here is my take featuring Bestie with kitty. 

The image was colored with Prismacolor pencils. The papers are from my stash.  I added some hand stitching across the top of the banners and some faux stitching around the blue oval mat.  
I hope you have fun with this sketch!

Be sure to stop by the other DT member's blogs.  They have some awesome cards to share with you!

God bless!!

Welcome back TMS fans!
Sorry I was unable to post last week.  I was away on a mission trip with my daughter and her youth group.  What a great trip!

This week we have a great sketch with tons of possibilities!

This week we're sponsored by SLS Lines.  This is a fun little digi shop on Etsy offering digital stamps and papers.  It has a little something for everyone! 

Now for the sketch....

and my card.....

I used paper from my ever growning stash!  The image is colored with Prismacolor pencils and then blended with a Prismacolor colorless blender alcohol marker.  I added a little sparkle to the flowers with a Wink of Stella pen.  A little butterfly die, some sequins and some thread accent the corner of the image panel.

Be sure to check out what the other DT members have created for for you this week!


Alright friends, it's your turn to play along.  And SLS Lines also has a challenge blog here.  Maybe you'll want to play along with theirs, too.

Can't wait to see your creation!  
God bless!!

Good Tuesday Morning!
It's  time for another Tuesday Morning Sketch!

This week we have returning sponsor Stitchy Bear Digital Outlet.  This is a fun digi store with digital papers and images that will fit all sorts of tastes.  As you'll see by our design team inspiration, we have sweet, we have fun and we even have... snarky.  

So now for this week's sketch.....

and my  take.....

I decided to use a fun image called Smiling Brontosaurus.  I thought he would make a fun birthday card.  I colored him with Copics. (still learning, but I love these markers!) I added a sentiment tag in place of an embellishment.  Embossed the purple strip for a little added dimension, some ribbon and twine finish off my card.

Be sure to check out what the other DT members created.  What a variety of styles!! Leave them a little love!

Be sure to link up your card by Sunday 7/12/15 to be in the random drawing for some Stitchy Bear images.
Can't wait to see what you create!

God bless!

60th Anniversary!!

I took some time over the three day weekend to play!
I made this special anniversary card for a couple that is celebrating 60 years of wedded bliss!  What a privilege to make this card for them!  And while I am also making invitations to my son's wedding!
Thanks to the sketch from MFT card challenge!

So this may not be the best quality of picture, but I wanted one that would show the foil shine on the "60".   This is my first try and foiling, and I admit, it was fun!
  Stamped the sentiment on vellum and added some pearl accents!  A little lace down the edges gives a little country elegance to a simple card!

Thanks for stopping by!
God bless!!
