Tuesday Morning Sketches 165

I think it's Tuesday.  Am I right?  It has been so crazy around here I can't keep things straight.  If it is Tuesday then today is the day for another great Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge.  Our sponsor today is...

And here is the sketch by Theresa.

Unfortunately I was in need of a sympathy card, so that is what I went with for this sketch.  I used some new Basic Grey Serendipity papers.  My sentiment is from My Favorite Things and is called Clearly Sentimental About Grandparents.  On the inside I used Clearly Sentimental About Sympathy.  The flowers are all cut using the Die-namics Flower Medley set.

That's it for me today.  Hoping to fit in some stamp time again soon, but both my boys are playing hockey and one is playing baseball too.  Be sure to check out the rest of the DT blogs for some great cards and also play along.

Tuesday Morning Sketches 164

Happy Tuesday!  We have another great sketch for you today from Tuesday Morning Sketches.  Our sponsor this week is Guylou's Inimitability.  Here is our sketch:

For my card, I used the Guylou stamp called Angela.  It was a freebie a while ago.  I just loved this girl and her Vespa.  I used My Mind's Eye World Traveler paper and layered my image on a Die-namics Doily Oval.  Instead of a bow, I pleated the ribbon along the side of my image.  Once I had the card assembled, it needed a little bling, so I added some dark red pearls to the corner.

That's all for me today.  Stop by the DT blog for more goodness and be sure to play along with us!

Tuesday Morning Sketches 163

It is Tuesday again and school is back in swing.  We have a new sketch this week from Tuesday Morning Sketches and it was designed by...ME!  Our sponsor this week is Designed2Delight.  We also have a bonus challenge this week.  The bonus challenge is FALL.  Here is the sketch:

Now when I think fall, I think...FOOTBALL.  So you won't find a pumpkin or leaf on my card today.  I used the MFT Die-namics Jersey set and paired it with some MME On the Bright Side paper.  I found this really cool mesh in a box and it gave the image a little bit of dimension.  I added some Die-namic Stars and the football from the MVP set and viola!

Although my card is all about football, we are at the beginning of hockey and baseball season here.  May your team have a winning weekend, unless of course they are playing my team. 

Be sure to check out the DT creations and play along with us too!

Wow can you believe it is September already?  Where did the summer go?  I am not adjusting well to having to get up early for work again every morning.  Today I was able to play with the September Sketch For You To Try.  Here is the sketch:

Next weekend I was invited to a college football theme baby shower.  How cool is that?  I love college football.  The new parents are Iowa fans, but I am a diehard Michigan fan, so here is the card I came up with.  The papers on the card front are from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Sunshine paper pack and the onesie is die-cut from October Afternoon Schoolhouse paper.  The Iowa image was downloaded from the internet.

Now a true fan, can't let it go at that, so the inside of the onesie says...

As a baby gift, I had my sister make a fleece blanket with an Iowa argyle pattern.  See, I can be nice too.  Have a great Saturday!

Tuesday Morning Sketches 162

It is almost back to school time here.  I know we are much later here than the rest of the country.  I started back to work today for a new school year and my boys start on Thursday.  Vacation was great!  It is sad that summer is over.  Many of the TMS DT were worried that I was at the beach where the hurricane hit, but thankfully we went to Ocean City, NJ this year.  Last year we were due to leave for the Outer Banks the weekend Hurricane Irene hit.  We were delayed a few days, but managed to have a great vacation in North Carolina anyway.  Hopefully we won't have a hurricane next year when we go back to OBX, but that is the reason we always get the travel insurance.

Here is this week's sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches:

Our sponsor this week is Doodle Pantry.  For my card, I used the Doodle Pantry image called Thinking Ant.  The DP is all from the My Mind's Eye Lost & Found paper pack called Sunshine.  The ribbon is from CTMH.

Enjoy the rest of your week.  Be sure to check out the DT blogs to see what they have been up to.

MFT Guest DT Challenge-September

After coming back from vacation and finding my MFT VIP kit for September waiting for me, I was inspired to play along with this month Guest Designer Challenge from My Favorite Things.  The theme this month was a sketch.  For my card, I used the new Pure Innocence set called Owl Costume.  I paper pieced the body with some MME paper in my scrap bin and then added some dimension to the feathers with Copics.  There are lots of Die-namics on this card.  My poor Cuttlebug was smoking when I was done with this card!

Here is a picture of the inside.

Have a great Labor Day!
