Hello! This week we are revisiting sketch #378 at Tuesday Morning Sketches. Struggled with this sketch last time and again this time not sure why? But I do think this time it turned out much better! We are sponsored this week by Bugaboo Stamps. I'm using the lovely Flower teapot image for my card. I had a lot of fun coloring this one! I added some glossy accents to the little ladybugs an to the polka dots of the teapot.

Cozy Winter Birthday


Hello!! Today I have a winter birthday card to share with you. I made these cute little mittens with my Spellbinder dies and multiple embossing folders. I think the snowflake is Spellbinders too but it could be MFT? I have a habit of die cutting up a bunch at a time with my scraps then I forget what is what! Paper is from my scrap bin, hoping I find another sheet of this in my stash somewhere cause I really liked it! Think it might have been Kaiser Kraft? It's doubled sided and I like both sides of it an I also loved the color combo. Thanks so much for stopping by! List of challenges is listed below.

I "heart" Snowman


Hello! Today's flashback sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches was chosen by Debbie. This is one I missed an had fun getting to use it! My snowman is from Alota Rubber Stamps but they are no longer in business. I had bought quite a few of their bare rubber images when they closed an finally got around to mounting them on some ezmount. The snowman is raised up with foam tape and I added some glossy accents to the heart and stickles to the snow & snowman. Love how this one turned out! Thanks for stopping by an make sure to check out what the rest of the DT came up with. Challenges I'm entering are listed below.

New Arrival


Hello! Boy do I have a hard time getting good pictures this time of year, can't wait for the longer days an more sunshine! My colors match really well in real life.....in this picture? Not so much! I'm LOVIN these Lawn Fawn Plaid paper pads I bought. You may be seeing quite a bit of it in the weeks to come! ;-)  Not sure the name of this Penny Black stamp as I don't personally own this one......yet!! I colored it with a combo of my copics and my Prisma pencils. I just can't get the little hedgies fur to look good with anything but my pencils. That's it for now, thanks for stopping by!

Stockings Were Hung....

 

Hello! It's Tuesday so it's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches! This time round it's the annual anything goes and it will run for 2 weeks. Hope you can join us! Be sure to check out what the rest of the DT has made.

My card uses some stockings that I stamped an punched out. It was a SU stamp set and punch that I had borrowed from a friend awhile back. Thinking I really should have bought these when they were out because they make really cute baby cards too with a little creative cutting! I used my brick embossing folder to try to make it look like my stockings where hung at a fireplace. Challenges I'm entering are listed below. Thanks for stopping by an have a great day!
