To make this Butterfly Wreath Card I used an image by Reverse Confetti and it was colored with Copic markers. Once the image was colored it was die cut with the coordinating die. I love using gingham, so I found a tiny check that worked well. A piece of white cardstock was embossed and layered on top of the gingham. The image and sentiment were adhered flat and that's it. I enjoy sending Thinking About You or On My Mind cards because they are unexpected and uplifting. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day.

Dia dhuit to my Irish friends or hello if that suits you better. Today at Tuesday Morning Sketches we start our 2021 sketches with one designed by Melissa Craig. Since St. Patrick's Day is getting closer I decided to make a cute card to send to my youngest niece. My family does have an Irish history, so I make a few cards to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. The Hedgie image used on this card is by Bugaboo Stamps and it was colored with Copic markers. The fun papers are from the Lots O' Luck paper pad by Doodlebug Designs (2018) and the shamrocks were punched and adhered to 1" circles. That's it! I hope you will join us this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches. Click HERE for all the challenge details and design team inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

To make this Snow-one Like You Card I used the Snowman Greetings stamp set by Newton's Nook. Copic markers were used to color the image and then it was die cut with the coordinating die. A little squirrel from the Sweetheart Tails stamp set along with two die cut trees also by Newton's Nook were added. The trees and snow were painted with sugar cube glitter paint by Martha Stewart Crafts. Everything was adhered to a piece of patterned paper from the Snowflake Splendor dsp by Stampin' Up!. Thanks for stopping by.😊

Here in Oklahoma we've had a very unusual cold snap and it's been below freezing here since last Monday. At first we got ice and now we have about 5" of snow on the ground with more on the way. The cold and snow definitely influenced my design choices. To make this Snow Thanks Card I used patterned paper from the retired Snowflake Splendor dsp. The sentiment is from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set and the snowflake die cuts are from the So Many Snowflakes die set. Three sequins were added to finish the sketch and that's it. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

Hello! This week at Tuesday Morning Sketches we are revisiting Melissa's favorite sketch from 2020 and she selected a sketch designed by Debbie Foster. It originally posted on February 25, 2020 and you can see all the wonderful creations on that post HERE. This time around I decided on using the Roses stamp by Newton's Nook and colored the image with Copic markers. The image went perfectly with papers by Crate Paper from their Little Bo Peep paper pad (2012), one of the first 6x6 paper pads I ever purchased. The sentiment was sitting on my craft desk already stamped, so it was meant to be. Everything was adhered flat and that's it. We would love for you to join us this week! For all the challenge details for to view the design team inspiration click HERE. Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to link your creation by 8 pm EST on Sunday. Have a great week!
