Tesday Morning Sketches #141

It's Tuesday, so that means another great sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches.  This week Digital Delights is our wonderful sponsor. They have the most adorable whimsical characters and fantastic Digital Paper.  Since it is the second week of the month, this is a judged challenge. Each member of the design team will visit your blog and then vote on their favorite who will win the prize of the week.  The top five will receive a 'Top 5' badge for their blog.  The challenge this week is 'Think Spring'.  I can't wait to see what your interpretation of this theme. Grab some papers and play along with us!



After a long cold, white winter, I love the beautiful colors of 'SPRING'. The lovely crocus, daffodils and hyacinth are all blooming. This hyacinth stamp is from Flourishes and it was colored with Copic markers. The dp is from a K and Co pad, embossing folder is from Spellbinders (it's one their new ones) and the edging, rolled flower and shaped frame are also from Spellbinders.

This week this creative sketch was designed by Melissa. Lots of possibilities with this sketch. I turned it on its side to create this card. This is one of those 'use over again' sketches, so watch for it to appear on some of my other cards.


Please check out the TMS site to see the great cards this DT has created for you.  A word of 'caution' be prepared to be inspired by these super talented ladies!

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.

Absolutely stunning, Marie! I love the raised frame, and the gorgeous purples - that colour is always a challenge for me, and I love how you rock it out of the park every time!

Okay, Marie, this might be my favorite card that you've made! That's some unbelievable coloring and I love the dp you put with it. Pretty bow and flower, too. One of these days I'm going to learn to add gold edging on things as good as you do. I can never get it that even. Hugs!
