Peace & Joy


Hello! It's Tuesday so that means it's new sketch time at Tuesday Morning Sketches! Last one for the year and it happens to be one of mine. Hope you like it and can play along. I used a Beccy's Place freebie called Poinsettia (2009).  Colored them with my Copics and added some Nailheads to the flower centers. Used various punches and dies for my greenery. Think the sentiment was from a Hero Arts set?? Love the colors on this one looks so much prettier in real life. Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to check out what the rest of the DT has come up with. Challenges are listed below.

Trim the Tree


Hello! It's Tuesday so that means its new sketch time at Tuesday Morning Sketches. This week I took the literal approach to the sketch! Thanks to my friend Stacy I had some of these lovely Taylored Expressions Trim a Tree die cuts to use (this die is now on my wish list). I really decked out my trees with lots of bling. My stitched hills are done with some shimmery card stock and I added some Stickles along the edges. The Merry Christmas was done with a Paper Smooches die. Love how this one turned out and I don't think my picture does it justice. Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to stop by and check out what the rest of the DT has come up with.

Christmas Candles


Hello! It's Tuesday so that means it's new sketch time at Tuesday Morning Sketches. I flipped the sketch this week to make it work for my image. I won this digi awhile back and can't seem to find/remember who it's from?! Hate when that happens but there's just to much to keep tract of these days. It's colored with Copics. I finished it off with some rhinestones and vintage lace that I thought went well with the sketch/image. Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to stop by and check out what the rest of the DT has come up with.

Mistletoe and Holly


Hello! Today's card was inspired by my friend Carol! When I saw the cards she made I knew I had to case them. Here is the card/s I cased, Traditional Christmas Colors. I wish I had the holly embossing folder she used because it's so pretty and I love all the berries but made due with this one. My ribbon is much narrower  and I used some scraps of DP for my Holly. Oh and I add an extra layer/base. That's it for now! Be sure to stop back by tomorrow for the new Tuesday Morning Sketch. List of challenges are below.

Cardinal and Holly


Hello! Today's card uses the Cardinal and Holly freebie from Beccy's Place. It makes such pretty Christmas cards. It was colored with Copic markers and I added some Glossy Accents to the berries. The outer white "lacey" oval is from MFT. I gently folded in all the edges to frame the image, not that it will stay that way when mailed I guess but I liked the look it gave anyway. That's all for now. Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

Glitter Ornaments


Hello! Managed to make it to the craft room for a bit to make this CAS card. Awhile back when I was at the Dollar Tree I came across these pks of self adhesive "glitter" paper. Thought it would make some sparkly cards. Anyway I saw the YNS inspiration picture and thought I'd try out this paper. It cut easily and the best way to describe it is to say it's like making your own stickers?!?! They are thin when peeled of the backing but they don't lose there sparkle/glitter. If they still have some next time I go I will be picking up some more. Three 8 1/2x 11 sheets for $1 is a great deal. The ornaments are Impression Obsession and the snowflakes are Art Impressions I think? I need to find a place to buy that silver cord in bulk! I always pick up the spool with 3 colors (Red, Gold & Silver) around the holidays at the "Box" craft stores and run out of silver an end up with tons of the other 2 colors. That's it for now thanks for stopping by!

With Love


Hello! Time for another new sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches. This weeks sketch is very similar to last weeks sketch but I tried to give it a different feel/look?! The black lacey looking strip is actually from a roll of precut self adhesive decorative tape I guess is the best way to describe it?! Picked it up at one of the "box" craft stores awhile back. The heart and key are Spellbinders dies. Thought this would make for a classy wedding or even anniversary card. Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to stop by and check out what the rest of the DT has come up with this week!

Christmas Lamp


Hello! I've been MIA for a few weeks except for my prescheduled TMS DT posts. I had some major surgery on the 1st and it's been very slow going. I felt good enough for small amounts of time at the craft table this past week. Won't tell you how long it took to make this card! Considering the fact I had already colored the image and picked out the pretty paper previously. It's been killing me not to be able to participate in the month long Holiday card challenge over at Beccy's Place. Now I have made at least 1 for it! Excuse the poor photo I can't move very well yet and guess I was to far away and the picture is a bit blurry. Anyway I'm happy with how this one turned out, looks really nice in real life! That's it for now enjoy you day!

Butterfly Wishes


Hello! It's Tuesday so that means its time for a new sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches. It's a quick and easy one this week. This one came together rather quickly with stuff that I had laying around on my desk. The butterfly came in a pk of 3 from M's ages ago, have them in several colors and finally used one. I added some rhinestones to it. The sentiment and scallop die edge are from PTI. Might have to make this one again in other color combos and sentiments? Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to stop by and check out what the rest of the DT has come up with this week.

Never Regret


Hello! It's time for this week's new sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches. I have flipped the sketch to make it work with the Rubbernecker sentiment (also picked up at the recent stamp show that I went to) that I choose to use for this week. I really like this sentiment! Reminds of another favorite sentiment of mine.....Live, Love, Laugh it's just a bit longer and more detailed! Off to the right side of my card I've used this piercing/embossing die that I've had for AGES. It was fun to use a tool that was forgotten about again! That's all for now please be sure to stop by and check out what the rest of the DT has come up with this week.
