Anniversary Grand Prize Reveal

This is our final week for the Tuesday Morning anniversary month, so we will be drawing for our grand prize this time. I can finally tell you what it is, and I'm so excited. First, let me share the sketch and twist with you.

The "twist" this week is to use a stamp -- pretty easy, eh? Who among us does not own a stamp? Please, no digital images or die cut focal images.

Now, here is the wonderful surprise prize:  

My Sweet Petunia is offering this wonderful prize to one lucky winner. Remember, the drawing will include every entry from week one through this final week. The grand prize winner will be announced next Monday, so you will want to participate this week!

I used a Close To My Heart image this week from a set called My Style. I have used those stamps before on several occasions with no problems, but this time I could not seem to get the image to stamp correctly (definitely needed a Misti!!). I tried every trick I know to get the image to print clearly and dark (as it should have). I even used several different inks. I finally had to pick the best of the bad to use. While I wasn't totally satisfied, I was running out of time. 

I used a blue Ninah card for my base, and a piece of retro looking designer paper from a stack my daughter pulled for me (sorry, I didn't jot down which pad it was from). Instead of ribbon, I used a piece of solid across the DP, and instead of a bow, I used the shoe image. The two fish tails are cut from a scrap of the main DP (front and back). I added three random rhinestones to the image oval and then one smaller one to the top of the shoe.

Stop by the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog and see the wonderful cards the other DT members have made and then get busy with your own creation. We love seeing what our followers do with our sketches.

Happy crafting everyone!


  1. Your card is so classy and has sophistication. Love the colors!

  2. OMG, sometimes I think I just need to NOT read the comments before I post mine. I was going to thank you for commenting that my cards tend to have a "happy" look and I was thinking I needed two words for how your cards tend to look, "classy & sassy" & oh so creative! Whoops that's three. :)

  3. Love your card this week! The girl and shoe are perfect and the added bling! Wow!

  4. Cute! I like the added bling.
