TMS and A Look Back

Good Morning TMS friends and Happy New Year!  We're looking forward to 2014 with a line up of great sketches, sponsors and inspiration.  We're going to kick off 2014 with a look back to 2013.  For the next 7 weeks, we'll be featuring a favorite sketch from the past year picked by one of the design team members. Angela is the first, and her sketch pick is TMS #190 which was originally featured on 19 March 2013. No, I'm not going to make you go hunting for the sketch (smile). Here it is:

Our sponsor for this first challenge of the new year is DeeDee's Digital Designs, and I've used DeeDee's "Up, Up and Away" set. The set includes line images, colored images and nice sentiments -- quite a bargain for the price! I've used both the image and one of the sentiments from this adorable set. 

My card base is white. The DP (both) are from an American Crafts 6 x 6" pad called "Dots and Stripes" which I happened to find on sale. Since I'm a dotty kind of gal (that was dotty, not ditzy, by the way), I most definitely grabbed it up! I've matted the DP and my image with black card, and I added some wonderful gem stones that I received (among other things) from my BFF for Christmas. I popped my image up with foam dots, and I attached my sentiment at an angle (gasp) with a combination of regular adhesive on one side and a foam dot on the other (to keep it even with the image).

We look forward to having all of you back with us this year. We will do our best to pique your creativity with great sketches and DT inspiration.
