Tuesday Morning Sketches 113

Happy Tuesday! It's sketch time again! This week's sketch is from DT member, Theresa. Our sponsor this week is There She Goes. Be sure to play along for the chance to win some free goodies.

My card is a loose interpretation of Theresa's sketch. Instead of an oval, I changed it to a circle. For this card, I again pulled out a bunch of scraps from Basic Grey and Close to My Heart. I guess I was in the mood for fall colors. I was going to use the stamp from Pure Innocence stamp with the girl holding the pumpkin, but then my happy mail came today with this stamp so I just had to use it. It is the Pure Innocence Sunflower Girl.

The sunflower accent was made from the Die-namics Build a Daisy die. I used glue dots to attach it to the ribbon center.

TMS 112

Happy Tuesday Morning! It is time for another fabulous sketch. This week our sponsor is DRS Designs.

For my card this week, I chose to make a birthday card. All of the design paper is from various stacks of My Mind's Eye paper. I went searching through my scrap bin and collected anything that matched. I used the MFT stamp and Die-namics set called "By the Number" for my card and accented it with Die-namics Stars. The postage stamp base is from the MFT set called "First Class Friend."
Have a great Tuesday! Be sure to check out what the other DT members have up their sleeves for todays sketch!

TMS 111

Good Morning! I am back from vacation. Still can't believe we actually got to go after an earthquake and a hurricane the week we were to leave, but we made it to the Outer Banks of North Caroline a day late and had a blast! Now it is back to school for the boys and back to work for me. I am starting back to work after being a stay at home mom for nine years. Luckily I am easing back into it part-time and working as a teacher's aide in my friend's pre-school class.

Today's sketch is from Kathy and our sponsor this week is Whimsie Doodles. I just love the stamp that they supplied for us this month! The cute little school boy is just right for a mom of boys. This week is also a judged challenge with the extra challenge of Inside/Outside. So be sure to add something special to the inside of your card as well.
I pulled out my Schoolhouse paper pack from October Afternoon and set to work. I used the Notebook Edge Die-namic, as well as the Retro Flower Die-namic. Now I know the challenge was Inside/Outside and I promise I did finish the inside. However, it is next to impossible to photograph the inside of a card on black cardstock with out getting a glare. None of the pictures I took came out, but I will tell you what is inside. Inside at the bottom is the card is a scallop border with the red DP from the front of the card and a tab on top that says "You're A Class Act."
That's it for me today. Be sure to check out the other DT members blogs for more TMS goodness!

Tuesday Morning Sketches 110

Happy Tuesday! Below is this week's sketch! Our sponsor this week is Bugaboo Stamps. Since I had to do this week's sketch way ahead because of vacation, I checked out the Bugaboo website and found an adorable freebie!

I flipped my sketch to suit the image I had. My image is this adorable Baseball Boy. This is so perfect for my family as we are huge baseball fans. I color him with Copics in the colors of the Phillies road uniforms. I used My Mind's Eye-Lime Twist paper and small strips of red ribbon.
