Simple Things Card - TMS #500

It's a super happy Tuesday today as we celebrate challenge #500 at Tuesday Morning Sketches. I'm glad you stopped by and thank you for celebrating with us at Tuesday Morning Sketches. It's quite a milestone to reach our 500th challenge. We're so excited about this accomplishment that we decided to have a blog hop. Be sure to start at the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog, follow the hop and finish back at Tuesday Morning Sketches.

In case this is your first time visiting my blog, I'm Andrea and I started making cards in 2011. I've been on the Tuesday Morning Sketches design team since November of 2018, but I started playing along in their challenges in 2013. I took a look back through the years and found the first time I played along from TMS #184 and my card is HERE. It's fun to look back and see how our design styles have evolved. Being part of the design team is such an honor and I enjoy seeing how differently the sketches are interpreted each week. Our sketch this week is a little challenging at first glance, but really it's super easy and open to so much possibility with stamps, dies and borders. My card came together pretty quickly and features a Spellbinders Flourish Trim die, patterned paper by Bo Bunny from the Early Bird 6x6 paper pad and Time to Enjoy sentiment stamp by Hero Arts.

The prize I am offering is....

Bo Bunny Pocket Full of Posies stamp set and Early Bird paper pad.

Be sure to comment here on my blog and link up your creation on the TMS blog to be considered for prizes. Yes! You can win a prize here and also on the TMS blog.

The next stop on the blog hop is... Debbie.

Enjoy the hop!

  9. This is lovely! Love the SB flourish die you used! I had to search for something similar in my stash … it was a challenge as I really don't have any that similar.
