Tuesday Morning Sketches 139

It's time for another great sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches. This week our sponsor is My Creative Classroom.  MCC is an online arts and crafts learning center. Their interactive and in-depth courses are instructor led and filled with wonderful projects and techniques to help you get the most out of your supplies. Since so many of the 'stamping stores' are closing, this is a marvelous way to learn new and exciting techniques, or how to improve your card making skills.Some of the courses taught include:  Photo organizing, Tombow techniques, starting a business on ETSY, digital scrapbooking and for those of you with a Cricut or Silhouette there are courses for improving your use of these great paper crafting tools. There is something for everyone.

On to my card for this week.


I'll let the card speak for itself, there isn't much to explain. You probably recognize everything that I used to created this card.

This is the fantastic sketch that, our very own, Jessica designed for us. Isn't it wonderful...with so many different creating options.



Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.

What a lovely sympathy card Marie. The trio of embossed panels are the perfect backdrop for your delicate butterflies! Love the soft lavender.

It's sad to see those great little stamp stores close isn't it. I guess they can't compete with the chain crafting stores and online companies.

Beautifully done, Marie! I was thinking butterflies when I saw those panels, so I just love the way you've done this. It's elegant, the purple inking of the edges really adds a pretty touch.
