Tuesday Morning with Henry

Good Morning friends!  Thank you for joining me for another Tuesday Morning Sketches sketch challenge.  Our sketch this week is another fantastic one from team mate Debbie Foster.

Here's the sketch...

Our sponsor this week is Patti and she's offering the cutest stamp set to one randomly drawn winner.  This is a CTMH stamp set called Balloon Animals.  This one would be so fun to play with. My son learned to do balloon "art," so this set reminded me of him, and I had to smile. 

For my card this week, I have used a pre-printed image from a Hugs with Henry découpage card kit. I have used a solid blue card as my base, and the two designer papers are from a pad by Pebbles. The ribbon is from my stash.

This is another wonderful sketch. I know everyone will have a fun time with it. We look forward to seeing your card entered in our weekly challenge. I honestly think this has been one of the best years for TMS from both the standpoint of great sketches and the standpoint of VERY lovely entries. Seeing LOTS of great talent each week, so keep it coming!

Have a great week. See you on the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog!

Jillian by Lacy Sunshine

Good Morning TMS friends.  Thank you for joining me for another great sketch. This week's sketch was designed for us by Debbie and it's definitely another go to sketch.

Our sponsor this week is another new one to the TMS family of sponsors.  Please welcome Lacy Sunshine!

Lacy Sunshine  Stamps offers  beautiful original and imaginative  digital stamps  for all your paper crafting needs. 

All images from Lacy Sunshine are  created and hand drawn by  Heather Valentin, a professional artist, muralist and  illustrator.

Isn't that a pretty sketch that Debbie has provided for us this week? You will be surprised at all the different ways it can be interpreted. In fact, you MUST go to the Tuesday Morning Blog and see what all the DT have done this week. I think you will be greatly inspired.

My card this week uses a Lacy Sunshine image called Jillian.

I have colored my image with Copic markers, and I've used a white card base with a green card mat. My DP is from my miscellaneous stash. I'm sorry that I could not get a good photo because the paper is a pretty cream with pinkish colored flowers and green leaves. I've used a cream/tan for the punched piece across the card and green satin ribbon (no brand name is given on the spool) on top of the punched piece. The fish tail pieces in the upper part are made from the green ribbon. I have added pink pearls to the upper right side of the card and on each of the fishtail pieces.

I enjoyed using this sketch, and I know you will, too. We look forward to having you join in this week's challenge.

A Fairy Nice Tuesday

Good Morning!  Thank you for joining us this week.  The sketch is ready and waiting for you to do great things with it!
Our sponsor this week is new to us and so fabulous!  A Day for Daisies is joining us and we are absolutely thrilled.  

The prize is a $12 shopping voucher - which is 3 digi stamps of the winners choice!

Here's the sketch....

I have used a delightful image called Vintage Fairy Ring Three. She was a delight to color with my Copic markers (as are all of A Day for Daisies images).  My base card is blue with a floral patterned paper from a 6x6 paper pad.  The plaid piece across the card is from the same pad. My butterfly embellishment is from Michael's Crafts. I have used a light coating of Stickles on the wings of my little fairy girl.

Please join us this week at the TMS blog. As you saw above, ADFD is providing a fantastic prize for some lucky lady (or gent) this week. I do so like ADFD images and can't get enough of them myself, so do enter your card for a chance at these wonderful images.

Good Morning TMS friends!  Happy Tuesday and we're so glad you're joining us for another fun sketch!  This one is brought to you by Jessi - we're sending her lots of happy, healing thoughts, she's a bit under the weather and will not be joining us this week.

The sponsor this week is Melissa!  She will send one lucky winner a really fun pouch full of goodies from Freckled Fawn.  It's one of their embellishments kits and it's so cute!

Here's the sketch....

Please join us this week. I know you will find this wonderful sketch super easy to work with. Have a look at the TMS Blog and see what the other members of the team have done.

Have a grand week, and happy crafting everyone!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #344

Hello! A funny thing happened on the way to posting this blog -- my keyboard quit working. After spending a frustrating night and day with no key board, and my sweet Hubs buying me a new one, we discovered that my old key board had NOT quit working. The culprit was a setting which had somehow gotten turned off. Anyway, I am finally here!

We have a great sketch by Debbie to play with this week. It is another sketch that I know everyone is going to go to often. Here it is:

Our sponsor this week is another new one for us, and we are so pleased to have Di's Digis. Di's store is full of adorable images, and she is going to give some lucky person a shopping voucher for $12 -- oh my, be still my heart. Wish I was eligible to play!

I have used an image called Izzy and dog. However, I left off the dog and only colored Izzy. I thought she looked so cute with her spring tulips. I combined her with some wonderful spring butterflies and wah la, a charming you are special card that I can use for a number of different occasions (birthday, graduation, thinking of you, congratulations, etc.) by gearing the inside message to whichever event for which I need a card. 

Since I am a full day late with this posting (due to the key board fiasco), I'm going to keep this short and sweet. Stop by the Tuesday Morning Blog and have a look at what the design team has created. We have several new very talented team members, so make sure you visit their individual blogs and welcome them to the group. See you all next Tuesday (hopefully on time). Have a great week!

Digital Delights

Good morning dear friends. It is time for another wonderful sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches. This week's sketch is from our very own Jessi, and I know it is going to be one of those "go to" sketches for many of us. Here it is:

Don't you just LUV it? 

Our sponsor this week is Digital Delights by Louby Loo.  The prize is a $5 voucher for Wendy's adorable images!  I know you are going to have a super hard time making a choice!

My card features Flower Power Basket of Daisies.

I have colored my image with Copic markers after printed it onto Xpress It brand card. The card base is the yellow color found in the patterned paper. I have matted my DP with blue card stock. I've also matted my image with the blue. The sentiment is a rubber stamp from my stash.

Remember we are looking for a few more DT members (preferably two more), so if you are interested, please go to the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog and have a look at the requirements. We really would love to have you on our team. Even if you don't feel you can devote the time to the design team, we would like to see what you do with our sketch this week. We've been having so many lovely entries of late, and it has been so very exciting to see the sketches being used in so many creative ways. 

Happy crafting!
