Joyful noise - TMS #428


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!! 


I love this sentiment!!  Growing up, we visited my grandparents on Christmas Day.  At my maternal grandparents house, everyone (all their 7 kids and families) brought goodies, and we ate and played and sang the evening away.  Sweet, sweet memories of joyful noise!!    We now live far from family and are not often together at Christmas, but we have sung together across the miles through Skype!  :)

Supplies...
We Are 3 Digitial paper Storybook Christmas
We Are 3 Christmas Sentiments
Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics
Spellbinders Fancy Tags 3
Cutter Bee Piercing Bug

This week, our sponsor is We Are 3 Digital Shop.  This is owned by Bonnie, our former teamie! :)

Christmas Blessings - CCC #25


Happy Sunday to you!  It's time for Christmas Card Challenges!!

I've got a cute kitty to share today. 



My image is From the Heart Stamps "Kitten Surprise" and colored it with my Spectrum Noir markers.  I cut everything out with Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics and Spellbinders Classic Squares then distressed the edges with my Distrezz It All.  I used Christmas Kraft paper for the main panel.  Some natural ribbon, yarn, and tiny brads finished it off.


Here's our optional photo inspiration for the week...



Did you know that last Sunday was National Cat Day?  Here's my cute real kitty! :)


Thanks for stopping and have a blessed day!!

Fall thanks - TMS #427


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!  I've got a fall thank you card to show you.  Over the last couple of days here in the northeast, we got lots of rain and wind.  There were lots of leaves swirling around!  And now many, many of the trees are bare. :( 

But that means it's about time for SNOW!!!!!  :) 




My image is Fred, She Said "Emma in the Leaves Coloured" and cut out with CottageCutz Stitched Rectangles.  My paper is the Paper Studio Linen Door.  I pierced the top with Cutter Bee Piercing Bugs.


Here's  our sketch for the week...

Distressed snowflakes - TMS #426


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!

Wow!  Christmas is only 2 months from tomorrow!!  I'm trying to have a handmade card for everyone on our list this year, so I've still got a bunch to make!   I made a couple like today's card...
With red paper...

and with blue paper...


I was really pleased with how this turned out so may make a few more like it.
The distressed snowflake DP is the Paper Studio Pine St Square.   My sentiment is Pink and Main Merry Christmas die.  The snowflake is an EK Success punch that I embossed with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots.  The border punch is MS.  I also used Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics and Standard Circles.


This week TMS is sponsoring with this embossing folder set...  Anna Griffin Cane Paisley.

Fall floral hello - TMS #425


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!! 

This fall started out looking pretty dull around where I live, but the colors have really popped the last couple of weeks, and it is so beautiful!!  Pics just never show how it really looks.  I love fall colors and though the flowers in my image aren't technically mums, I "made" them mums by coloring them the colors of those I'm seeing everywhere... (including my yard!)



Supplies...
~Crate Paper Farmhouse DP
~Bugaboo Ornamental Flowers 2
~Spectrum Noir markers
~JustRite Greetings From London "hello"
~Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A and B

Here's a pic of the mums in my window boxes...


And a leaf from my backyard...

It is well with my soul - TMS #424


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!  Here's my card for this week. 



I have to say that this is much prettier IRL!  For some reason, the papers just don't photograph well at all.  I also heat embossed the sentiment so there is some shine to it. 
This beautiful -but not looking it- paper is Prima Nature Garden.   My sentiment is Sweet n Sassy Hymn Blocks.  I cut it out with CottageCutz Stitched Rectangles.  The corner is Spellbinders Antique Corner die that I trimmed down to fit my corner.


Here's our great sketch for this week...


 

Challenges...
Word Art Wednesday #302-303 - anything goes w/ uplifting sentiment
Aud Sentiments #190 - use die cut + sentiment

Happy Sunday to you!  It's time for Christmas Card Challenges!!

This card is very unusual for me... it's purple.  This is my least favorite color, so I don't use it often and have basically none in my stash, so this was a real challenge for me.  The ornament is a dark purple, though it looks almost black in the pic.

Cuttlebug Holly Ribbons EF
Die-namics Small Ornaments die (ornament hanger)
Momenta Moroccan die
Spellbinders Standard Circles
Sentiment die - freebie that came with a Dies R Us order
