TMS 114

It's Tuesday Morning Sketch time! This week's sketch is sponsored by One Stop Cards. I love the concept of this sketch, but my execution was a bit of a challenge. I didn't know what to use to make a larger circle card so I used my Nestabilities to make a smaller circle and then layered it on a square card.

I made this card for my sister, Holly. Her birthday was September 14th so I am a bit late. Going back to work after being a stay at home mom for 9 years is a bit of an adjustment. My house is a mess. I haven't cooked very much for the last two weeks. And my craft room has been sorely neglected. I have at least managed to keep the kids in clean clothes. Having kids playing hockey and baseball have kept our nights and weekends pretty busy too.

Enough of the mundane details. Here is my card for this week. I used My Minds Eye Stella Rose paper for the background then layered this week's sketch on top. For the center of the card, I used the MFT Die-namic and stamp set called First Class Friend cut from black and cream cardstock. The flowers were made from the MFT Die-namic die called Pretty Posies.

Well that's it for me today. Be sure to check out the rest of the TMS DT girls to see what they have been up to this week.

Dawn, great interpretation of the sketch. The DPs that you used to for the posies and the layering is fantastic. Love the pearl centers.

Oh my word, Dawn, this totally rocks! Gorgeous creation for sure...I'll bet your sister will treasure it!

I have to laugh, because as I was making the circular card, I was planning to "remake" it on a square card! LOL Do you think great minds think alike?!

So pretty. Love the gorgeous combo of papers here. Good luck being back to work, that's got to be a challenge after being home all those years.
