Tuesday Morning Sketches #421

Hi everyone,

My mind hasn't really improved (obviously since I'm late again), but I'm going on vacation for a few days to see my grand babies - that will make everything all better right?  Plus, I'll have an extra day to get on top of some much needed organizing and that ALWAYS helps too.  

This sweet kitty image came from our sponsor this week...  All Dressed Up!  Play along for your chance to win 2 images of your choice. The flowers are from them also but discontinued so if you love something be sure and snag it while you can.

The embellishments are old from my stash and the rose embossing folder is new from CTMH. 

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to go check out the creations from the TMS DT... I apologize that I failed to introduce the newest amazing member of our team Carol!! Please stop by and tell her welcome (even though it's quite late). We're sad that Wanda has had to step down. :(  



We'd love to have you play along with us this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #420

Hi everyone,

I'm seriously getting a little nervous about my memory and staying on top of things.  I think it's a hormone issue.  I was just thinking oh I need to get my post ready for tomorrow, and then I noticed that we already have entries - wait what's today???  OMG I'm crazy - only hope I have is that I've been told if you're really loosing it you don't know it.  I hope I'm just going through a phase.  

Maybe it's also all that's going on in the world and all the news to watch and people to pray for.  I only wish I was doing more praying than watching.

Well without further whining here are my cards, I was so proud to finally do two again.  I had a problem in that I couldn't find my DRS stamps so I didn't want to use any other brand of stamps so these are actually "anti-stampo" cards you know like antipasto salad.  Ok if I don't shut up soon you will think know I really am crazy!!  If you have questions just ask and I'll try and remember what I used - lol. 

DRS Designs is our wonderful sponsor and they have tons of great stamps so head on over and check out what the rest of our On Top of Things Best Team Ever made (I hope they don't disown me).   

Also, please have fun, pray and be safe!!

Bunches of blessings,

Tuesday Morning Sketches #419

Thanks for stopping by I hope your Tuesday is Terrific!  I am really really going to try and set aside some time this week to create another card with this sketch because this isn't anything like I thought I would make.  I am happy with it I just had something much different in mind.

I set my stop watch and it took me 27 minutes to make this.  I'm sure I spent at least 5 minutes of that looking for the hole punch that I wanted to use for the top of the tag. I had watercolored the paper a while back just playing around.  For the tag shape I just went through my odds & ends basket and trimmed one side of it and folded over a scrap of my water colored paper for the hole reinforcement, I have a weakness for those, I think they're such a cute little detail.  

The stamp is one of my new current CTMH favorites.  I used it last week too.  The punch for the loopy edge is Martha Stewart, everything else is CTMH, watercolors, watercolor paper, ink and ribbon.  Oh but the little epoxy flowers are Doodle Bug from my local SS. 

Thanks again & I hope you get to play along with us!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #418

OMG I feel terrible,  I'm so late posting I JUST realized that I didn't set this to post.  Life these days!!! Please accept my apologies.  I made this with new CTMH paper and a new FAV stamp set by CTMH also.  You will def be seeing more of this.  

I've been working long hours and had company plus didn't realize how much time it took to give stuff away.  I have offered a few large items to my wonderful work friends but arranging for washer/dryer and a huge dresser to be picked up has been a little time consuming. 

I hope YOU have time for more fun this week than I do!!!! 

Have a wonderful one!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #416

Hello there!

I hope your Monday was as good as mine!!  It was a VERY busy day for me I worked and then after work painted trim in our bathroom - I'm really slow at that so it took me close to 4 hours arrrrrgh!!  I keep telling myself someday when all this house stuff is done I can play more but for now I'm thankful for the snatches of time that I do have.  

This week's sketch by Janice is really fun and simple.  My image is Bugkkfish Kawaii Kitty Fish by our sponsor Bugaboo Stamps. The prize is 4 images of winner's choice.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #415

Happy Tuesday morning once again!  

Here's what I made for Tuesday Morning Sketches #415.  I just adore this sketch from Melissa and my little craft room is coming right along so I may add a card or two this week.  This weeks prize is compliments of our team and it is two (2!) Close to My Heart Brush pens - they are wonderful and addictive.
I threw this card together with the first items I glanced at as I thought "wow what am I going to make I should already be in bed...."  The paper is actually just a cover sheet I needed to put in the folder while I was embossing something else so it is only printer paper that I was going to throw away (but don't tell anyone ok??).  The flowers were in a little basket of left overs on my desk and the dotted paper is from my LSS and it was literally THE first piece of paper in one of my paper bins.  The stamp set was even part of a pile of sets I need to clean and organize on my desk.

I got my card stock organized over the weekend and I can hardly wait until I get to show off my will come in time.  :)

In the meantime I hope you play along with us at TMS this week and at the very least stop by and leave our team some encouragement ok?
