Good day crafty friends! It's time to start another fun sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches. This weeks sketch is designed by Melissa Craig and we hope you're inspired to play along. I had several ideas on how to use the sketch and finally settled on using the chameleons by Lawn Fawn. They fit nicely into the focal areas and I like the way they are looking at each other. There are lots of possibilities with this weeks sketch and I look forward to seeing all the different creative ideas shared. For all the challenge details and design team inspiration click HERE. Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to link you creation by 8 pm EST on Sunday. 😊

Hello! When making and sending handmade cards you never expect to get them back. After my brother passed away most of the cards I made him were returned to me. Today would have been his 38th birthday, so I took the cards out to remember happier times. The cards are laying on two king size Batman pillow cases that I made him for Christmas several years ago. Up top in the photo you will see a painted rock with the word "whatever" on it. Another Christmas I asked him what he wanted and he replied "I don't know, just whatever," so I made him the rock and wrapped it in a pretty box. I'm sure I bought him something else, but I couldn't tell you what it was. He got a whatever rock and it made him laugh and that's all I remember. Thanks for stopping by and sharing in my memory. Happy birthday baby brother!

The month of May is my birthday month and I have several family members and friends with birthdays this month too. So, I decided to make a couple of birthday cards for my stash. The first card features the Icing Fluffles stamp by Stampendous!. Since the image is on the larger side, I just pulled the sketch elements down. Copic markers were used to color the image and I paper pieced the cupcake liner. Patterned papers are from the Happy Birthday Girl paper pad by Echo Park (2017) and the yellow polka dots were made with Bo Bunny paper scraps. The second card sticks more to the scale of the challenge sketch and features a candle image by Hampton Art. Papers on this card are from the Happy Birthday Boy paper pad and the same yellow polka dot paper by Bo Bunny was used. That's it! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day.
