Sending a (Summer) Smile

Good Morning friends.  It is Tuesday again, so we another sketch for you.  This week's sketch is brought to us by Debbie.  Isn't it a nice, classical look? I really like it!

Our sponsor this week is Pink and Main. Michelle's Pink and Main shop has wonderful stamps for cards, scrapbooks and planners.  She also has a great selection of dies at very reasonable prices!  The prize for some lucky participant is $15 store credit.

Here's the sketch we'll be working with....

 Before we get too far along with our sketch, I'd like to share a couple of photos from this past Friday (27 May 2016):

Yep, that's The Boy at his high school graduation. He is officially a graduate (and as of the writing of this blog down in FL with about a dozen of his friends and fellow graduates), and will be starting college in August. We are very proud of this young man.

Now,  please join us this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches. We'd love to see what you do with our beautiful sketch. (Can you believe another month of this year is ending today? The year is flying by!!)

A Look at Wednesday

Howdy TMS friends! I am running a bit late this week. Thinks have been busy around my household. Thank you so much for stopping by (even if a day late).  The new sketch is brought to you from Jessi.  I think this is so much fun and so versatile as you'll see by the amazing design team.  

The sponsor is our own Melissa this week - in honor her sweet daughter who graduates this week. The prize will be everything Hollyanne reminds Melissa of (sound like fun, doesn't it?).

Here's the sketch.....
There are actually two DT members who have children graduating this week. Melissa's Hollyanne and my Collin are graduating high school. Debbie Foster's daughter is graduating in a couple of weeks. Busy, busy time for everyone. In addition, we are sadly having to say good-bye to DT member, Lee, who is going to be quite busy packing and preparing to move back to the USA. We are going to miss Lee, but glad she is coming "home."

I created a tri-fold card for my sketch. It doesn't HAVE to be tri-fold as you could simply use different papers for each side of a flat card instead. However, I thought the flat card would be fun. I used white card for the base and striped DP for each side and the inside. My image, which I colored with Copic markers, is matted with solid blue card. The sentiment is computer generated and cut with an oval die.

Hope you will be able to join us this week. Check out all the DT samples at our web site, Tuesday Morning Sketches. 

See you next week. Hopefully things will have settled down a bit and I'll be back on schedule again. Happy crafting!

Crafty Sentiments on Tuesday Morning

Good Morning TMS friends!  Thank you so much for joining us today.  We have a great sketch - I think so anyway.  It's basic with so many options!  You'll be inspired by the team's cards.

Our sponsor this week is Crafty Sentiments.  This shop is a sweet little shop with rubber stamps, digital stamps, embellishments and lots of other things to help you create beautiful cards.  

They are offering 3 digital images of your choice from their web store.

Now, here is our wonderful sketch from this week:

I know this is a busy time. A number of us on the design team have/had graduations this month, so we understand time constraints, but if you are lucky enough to be able to spend time in your crafting space, we'd love for you to join us in this week's challenge. This is a super sketch, and I know it is going to be one that you will want to add to your "go to" collection. Stop by the Tuesday Morning blog and see what the design team have done.

And last of all, here is the wonderful prize that Patti is offering:
  Lots of good stuff, eh? Take a few minutes to go over to the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog and have a look at the wonderful (and diverse) cards the DT have made. You will really enjoy all the wonderful talent and the various ways the team have interpreted this lovely sketch.
