Tuesday Morning Sketches 178

Merry Christmas!  Today is our holiday edition of Tuesday Morning Sketches and this week we are trying something a little different.  Our sponsor this week is Melissa herself with a huge blog candy giveaway.  We are also working without a sketch this week.  Instead, the challenge is an Anything Goes challenge.  So this is your chance to try a technique you have never tried or make a special gift for someone.  Since the prize is so sweet, you will really need to stop up your game.  The winner for this challenge will be voted on by the design team so have fun!

For this week, I chose to alter an insulated coffee mug.  I used paper from My Mind's Eye's Lost and Found paper pack called Portobello Road.  The image is from Stamping Bella's Uptown Girls collection and is called Clarissa and Camille Share a Cafe.

Here is a close-up of the mug.

Here is a close-up of the tag.

Now stop by the TMS Blog to see all of the goodies the girls have in store and be sure to play along for a great prize!

Tuesday Morning Sketches 177

Wow!  There is only one week until Christmas!  Yay!  Are you ready?  Today at Tuesday Morning Sketches, we have another great sketch and a great sponsor.  Our sponsor this week is...

Here is our sketch:

Bugaboo was kind enough to provide us with some great stamps to work with.  The stamp I used is called Little Penguin-Winter.  Since penguins are black and white, I decided use that theme on my card.  The DP is from Teresa Collins called Christmas Home.  I also flipped the sketch upside down.

Check in with the rest of the design team and see more goodies.  Since next week is Christmas, TMS has a great specially challenge for you.  The sketch is sponsored by Melissa herself and it will be too good to miss.  So come prepared to bring your A-game.  It is a prize worth playing for!

Final Sketch For You To Try

It is hard to believe it is the final Sketch For You To Try, but since I completed the first eleven sketches this month,  just had to finish the twelfth.  Here are links to the first 11:

Here is my card for the final challenge:

Since I needed one for Christmas card, I used the new MFT A La Mode set called You Shine.  The image is layered on My Mind's Eye-Be Merry paper.  There a multiple colors of Stickles on the lights and the star on her headband.

Thanks to Jen and her team for a wonderful year of sketches.  It has been great getting a chance to do all twelve SFYTT sketches this year.  It is the first time ever for me.  I usually end up missing one somewhere.  It will missed.

Tuesday Morning Sketches 176

Well the Christmas countdown has begun.  Do you have your shopping done?  My is done.  Now I have to work on wrapping.  We have another great sketch for you this week from Tuesday Morning Sketches.  Our sponsor this week is Debbie from Close to My Heart.  We have a bonus challenge this week too.  The challenge is Non-Traditional Christmas.  Here is our sketch:

Theresa was kind enough to supply the design team with stamp sets from Close To My Heart.  For my card, I used Flakey Friends and Capture the Date.  As I was creating my card, I totally forgot about the bonus challenge and had to make some edits after the card was done.  I went with non-traditional colors.  The colors I used were blue and brown, with a pop of red and green.  The paper I used is by American Crafts and is called Jolly.  What could be better than that!

That's all for me today.  Have a great day!  Be sure to check out the rest of the TMS team to see their take on non-traditional Christmas.

It is time for another sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches.  This week's sketch is sponsored by...

Here is our sketch:

When I saw the sketch, the first thing I thought of was a frame, so that is exactly what I made.  I bought the frame at Target and used Close to My Heart paper that I had in my stash.  The snowman is a Pure Innocence set called Holiday Hugs Snowman.

Be sure to check out the rest of the goodies created by the TMS Design Team.  Have a great week!
