Hello! It's Tuesday so that means its time for another great sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches! We are sponsored this week by our very own Debbie with a Christmas stamp set from Graphic 45 called Twas the Night Before Christmas. Thanks Debbie!

I have lots of texture going on with my card this week! I added a close up picture to show all the detail. The poinsettia is from Gina K's Year of Flowers. It is embossed in gold on pink card stock an then sponged with some Tim Holtz Spun Sugar ink. I added some gold pearls to the center to finish it off. Layered it on top of some burlap, pink twine and some MS branch punches. The Noel sentiment is a wooden tag that I had found last year at Target in the $1 spot. I Love how this one turned out. Thanks so much for stopping by.

Hard Candy Christmas

Hello! Today's card uses a Beccy's Place digital image. It must be a retired one because I couldn't find it in her store or in the freebies link on her blog? This picture doesn't do it justice.... the colors match perfectly in real life. I went with red, white and green for this one but I did color one up in just red and white with a black pot for a future card! Challenges are listed below. Thanks for stopping by an have a great day!

Apple Time

Hello! Today's card has me hungry for some Apple Crisp! Think I may have to make some this week for sure. I used one of my favorite embossing folders of all time (right after my swiss dots one that is! ) from Stampin Up. It reminds me of a basket so thought it would go perfectly with this image. Challenges I'm entering are listed below. Thanks for stopping by!

Flower Box Kitty

Hello! Today's card uses a free digi from Sliekje Digi Stamps. If you've never checked out her blog you should! She draws the cutest images an they are all free! You just need to look thru her blog posts to find them. Well worth the visit in my opinion! I still had a scrap of this lovely plaid paper on my table so went with that when I colored up this cute image. Challenges are listed below. Thanks for stopping by!

Cart Full of Wishes

Hello!! Today's card uses an Inky Antics image that I colored ages ago with my Prismacolor pencils. I added a heart brad to my wheel center. I'm really LOVING this new 6x6 perfectly plaid paper pad that I got recently. It's from Lawn Fawn. I used my paper crimper on the little strip of card stock and added some twine and buttons on top of it. Added a sentiment and cut it out with my first set of "stitched" dies. Think I might have to add more of these to my wish list! List of challenges I'm entering are listed below. Thanks for stopping by an hope you come back again soon!
