Thinking of you - TMS #450


I was able to spend a bit of time in my craft room this evening and finished my card - though it's VERY late - for Tuesday Morning Sketches #450.



This week, we're starting something new and will play with this the last Tuesday of each month -- a blank canvas challenge...


I faked my watercolor. :)  I used TH distress inks and water. I will use more water next time.  My image is a freebie from Spectrum Noir and is colored with my Spectrum Noir markers.  I used Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics and Classic Squares.  My sentiment is Raisin Boat.  The ribbon is from the Paper Studio, and I added a few adhesive pearls.

You've still got some time, so please come over and play along with us at Tuesday Morning Sketches!

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

I've got a simple thank you card to share today.  Actually, I've got 2 of the same sketch.  




Here's card number 2...




Here's the sketch...  It's a pretty basic sketch, but you can change it up depending on your paper and/or embellies!

On your special day - TMS #446


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!  I'm so excited about my card today!!!!  It's my daughter's birthday card.  She is 20, but for years has loved and still loves Beauty and the Beast!  Check this out...


(I added the pic in a huge size so you can see the detail.)

This was really fun to make!!  If you visit regularly, you've probably heard me say I'm using up scraps and already printed images.  {{FYI my 6 month "I'm not buying anymore paper" spree has lasted over 8 mos!}}  In case, you're impressed with my self-control, I must admit I have purchased a few dies with Christmas money, and I did get some black cardstock that I "needed."  ;)  
I recently found this Disney Belle Enchanted die and was so excited because, as I said, my daughter loves Beauty and the Beast!!  I came home and began to play with it.  The tiny face stamp is included.  So cute!  I cut it twice in yellow.  I put tape on the back of the second one before taking it out of the die in order to keep the tiny pieces in the skirt.  I cut it in brown, cream, white, and red and trimmed to get the hair, face, dress trim, and rose. 

Supplies...

~the Paper Studio "The Linen Door" DP 
~Simon Says Stamp Tiny Tags
~Disney "Enchanted Belle" die
~CottageCutz Stitched Rectangles
~CottageCutz Stitched Ovals
~Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics
~My Pink Stamper Family & Friends clear sentiment 
~the Paper Studio adhesive enamel dots
~baker's twine


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

Remembering... your work of faith - TMS #445


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

Not all of the cards I make for TMS are made with a recipient in mind, but this one definitely was.  It was a thank you for a couple who planted a church not far from us.  He is now battling cancer, and they could not continue.  At their last service there, the church family wrote their appreciation in this card...  


This verse freebie from Word Art Wednesday (back in October) was perfect for their card!!  (The card is 5x7 so there was more room to sign.)  It's cut out using unbranded cross stitch ovals from Cheapo Dies.  My DP is DCWV Mariposa.  Primo flowers, Spellbinders Foliage leaves, and a few adhesive dots finished it off.     

Challenges... 
Inkspirational Challenge #156 - work ("work of faith" in sentiment)
Word Art Wednesday #326-327 - anything goes 


I also made another card using this sketch just because I had a sentiment sitting around...



This was made with a $1 clear stamp, the unbranded cross stitch ovals, the Paper Studio flowers and gems, and DCWV Spring and Summer corrugated paper that I've had forever.


Challenges...
Simply Create Too #136 - use green
Di's Digis Designs - lots of green
Addicted-to-stamps #162 - thank you
DLART Thankful Thursday #224 - green and/or thankful



Here's our wonderful sketch....

Birthday Blessings


A snow storm + a state of emergency keeping all non-essential travelers off the road = craft time for me!! :)

I've been trying to use up some of my paper scraps, pads with just a few sheets left, and stamped or printed images that have been sitting on my desk forever.  But in trying to use all that up, I've discovered that I have a few stamps that had never even been inked!  I checked out Paper Playful for some inspiration and found a new-to-me challenge... Retro Rubber requires a rubber stamp older that 1 year.  Perfect!!  Here's what I created...


Supplies...
~LOTV Rosey Posy rubber stamp (she's over 2 yrs old!!)
~Spectrum Noir markers
~Spellbinders Standard Circles
~Spellbinders Petite Scalloped Circles
~Spellbinders Ribbon Banners
~Authentique 'Latest & Greatest' DP
~Lifetime Crafts EF
~TH walnut stain distress ink
~Sweet n Sassy 'Pennant Party' sentiment


Challenges...
Use Your Stuff - anything goes

Owl always love you - TMS #443


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

Here's a sneak peak at my cute owl card, but before I give details on that, I've got SNOW to show you!   

I know winter storm Riley caused some real problems in some areas, and I'm sorry if you were affected by that.  Here, we got snow, snow, snow!!  I love it!!  
I went out twice to take pics.  The first time, the snow was almost to the top of my tall boots.  The second time, it was well over my knees.  We got 30" at my house.  (Our church is in the next town with a higher elevation, and we got 39.3" there!  The current forecast is for us to get 10-18" more tomorrow into Thursday from winter storm Quinn!!)

Looking out my front window at 9 AM and then at 4 PM...


Behind my house...


Our mailbox... (The heavy snow bent our bushes down to about half their normal height.  You should not be able to see the roof of my house!)


The brook across the road...

Isn't it beautiful??  

Now that I've either made you jealous or thankful that you don't have it, here's the whole card for this week's challenge... :) 



This was a really fun card to make!  I'm using up scraps and paper pads with a few sheets left and images printed and colored and waiting, and this card is no exception.   My image is "Owl Always Love You" by Paper Pretties... a shop that's been closed for over 2 years!  (That gives you an idea of how much I've got sitting around!)   I colored this cute little guy with Spectrum Noir markers.  My paper is all Fancy Pants "Summer's End" and all cut with Spellbinders Standard Circles.   Easy peasy, but cute IMHO. ;)  


Here's our sketch for the week...




TMS is sponsoring with this set of Spellbinders Crosses Two dies that would be perfect for your Easter cards!!
