Tuesday Morning Sketches #142

Welcome to another great week at Tuesday Morning Sketches. You're in for a real treat this week. Our 'new to us' sponsor is Raisin Boat! OMG they have over 255 exclusive clear stamp sets available and the best part is..........YOU RENT THEM! Okay lets be honest.....how many stamps have you bought that you used once or twice then had to find a place to store them? I already know the answer and Raisin Boat has the solution, rent the stamps for a month then send them back. You create a 'pick list' with the stamps that you want and as you return a set the next one on your list is sent out to you. Did I mention 'a postage paid envelope'? Yup it is that easy, just put it into your mail box. If you fall in love with a set, you can purchase it at a special members price. Want more details...check them out HERE.





This card was made with the "By The Beach" set. There are a few more stamps in this set that weren't used on my card. Be sure to visit their site and check them out. The tiny shells on this card are from Hawaii.

Oh an interesting tidbit about this great place to rent stamps.......this company is owned and operated by two  mothers who are "RAISIN" their children.  There are 4 children and the first initial of each child's name was use in the Company Title..... B - O -A - T, hence the name "Raisin Boat" Cool huh?

This is the super marvelous, creative sketch by the ultra talented Melissa. Won't you join us this week? We'd love to see what you create with this sketch.



BTW as you probably have notice...I'm laying down on the job again and turned the sketch on it's side.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges.

Ok Marie there you go making another gorgeous card that has me longing for Hawaii!!! I think my favorite part of this one is the little fence. I could see myself sneaking through the opening to go dip my toes in the sea!!
