Tuesday Morning Sketches 161

Happy Tuesday!  As this post goes live, I will be on vacation at the beach!  Our sketch this week is sponsored by:

Here is our sketch:

Raisin Boat was kind enough to provide the DT with some great sets.  My set is called For the Birds.  I paired it with some My Mind's Eye Kraft Funday papers in Everyday Fun.  The circle at the side and the flower are both Die-namics dies.

That's all for me today.  Check out the DT blogs for more goodies.

Tuesday Morning Sketches 160

Welcome to another edition of Tuesday Morning Sketches.  This week we have a bunch of fun sketches and you get to choose the one you want to play with.  How cool is that?  Our sponsor this week is...

Here are the sketches:

Since back to school is just around the corner, I used the Stamping Boutiques stamp called Schoolhouse.  The DP is also called Schoolhouse and it is from October Afternoon.  I paired them with the third sketch from this week.  The image panel and the accent panel are both cut with Nestabilities dies and the stars are cut with Die-namics dies.  I added a little bit of bling too.

That's all for me today.  Be sure to check out what the DT has in store this week and be sure to pick a sketch and play along!

Tuesday Morning Sketches 159

Happy Tuesday!  Today we have another beautiful sketch from Melissa and a great sponsor too.  Our sponsor today is...

I just love Sparkle's stamps.  Below is the sketch so come on and give it a try!

My card uses the Sparkle Creations set called Backpack Oliver.  Back to school time is just around the corner.  I have all of the boys school supplies already and can't wait to settle back into a routine.  I am so glad that I will get to spend a week at the beach before we have to go back to school.  Can't wait!  Now back to the card.  All of the DP is from the My Mind's Eye's Kraft Fun Day paper pack called Happy Days.  The arrow, circle, and border are all cut with Die-namics dies.  Backpack Oliver is colored with Copics and put on with pop dots.

Be sure to check out the rest of the design teams creations and be sure to play along with us.  Have a great day!  I am headed to the beach on my day off!

Happy Friday!  I am getting ready to go out with my sister for pedicures, but figured I better pop in a post this before I forgot.  I needed a birthday card for the weekend, so I used this month's Sketch for You to Try.  Here is the sketch:

I got a bunch of Uptown Girls from Stamping Bella a couple of months ago and finally decided to put one to use.  I just love this girl on her Vespa.  The stamp is called Venna on a Vespa.  All of the DP is from MME's Miss Caroline paper pack called Fiddlesticks.

That's it for me today!  Enjoy your weekend!

Tuesday Morning Sketches 158

Happy Tuesday!  I must admit I was not sure I would have time to get this done.  After spending a long  weekend in Wisconsin and heading to Boston this past weekend, plus work and sightseeing with my sister and her friend, Kim, there was not much time left to stamp.  Plus I just had to watch the Olympics, right?  But, alas I made time and got a really cute card done...if I say so myself.

Our sketch this week is from Debbie and we have a very generous sponsor too:

Digi Doodle Shop sent the DT our choice of stamps to work with.  Cool, huh?  This week is also a challenge week.  Our bonus challenge is BIRTHDAYS.  Here is our sketch:

For my card, I used the Digi Doodle Shop stamp set called Sea Life.  What says birthday like blowing out the candles, especially when you have as many as I do!  The background paper is all from Cosmo Cricket's Salt Air paper pack.  I added some buttons in place of the flowers and the sentiment is from My Favorite Things.

Be sure to check out what the rest of the DT has up their sleeves.  Be sure to make a birthday card and play along with us!  Have a great day!
