Hey everyone! I am back after a rough bout of the flu! It had me laid up in bed for over a week and was not fun at all.

I am feeling much better now and able to get back to my crafting table and so I have a new project for you for Tuesday Morning Sketches.

Our we have a lovely slim line sketch for you this go round, but of course it could be modified for just a regular A2 size so don’t that scare you off!

Here is mine!

The slimline is from Mama Elephant and the stamped animals and sentiment are from Craft Addicts..I really love this grumpy animal set, it is just adorable. The tree is from another die that I got in a swap ages ago. I just used some Basic Grey paper for the focal piece as well as some cute silver little balls. I colored the images with my copics. I am sending this card to my swap partner for the Splitcoast Stampers Baker’s Dozen. I hope she likes it.

C’mon over to the blog and play along with us for this go round, we can’t wait to see what you create!


Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian Friends! It’s our Thanskgiving today and so I wish you a lovely day and I hope that through this crazy time, you are able to celebrate in some way with your family.

I’ve been working on the challenges from Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine for their World Card Making Day.

This is using the Inspired By Challenge. I was inspired by the free cut file for leaves that was on the blog…did you know they have so many free cut files and downloads!

I just used some papers from my stash and then the Grateful sentiment is from a SCT sampler that I received. I also added a few sequins that were sitting on my desk. I went with a slimline for this one using my Mama Elephant Die.

Thanks for stopping by everyone!

This was fun to make!  I had the Mama Elephant Circular Grid die that I hadn’t used yet so it was fun to crack open.  The little penguins are also from Mama Elephant and I colored them with my copics.  The sentiment is a Lawn Fawn and the DP is from Photoplay.  Super easy, super fun.

Hellooooo! New day new challenge for Tuesday Morning Sketches! Here’s the sketch!

Now for my card, I played a bit with this sketch, which is ok! a sketch is kind of a starting off point and it doesn’t always have to be exact.

So let’s take a look at my card!


So the first thing that you will notice is that I rotated the sketch so that it is horizontal instead of vertical. I also spread out the diamonds a bit so that I had a bit more room for my images since they were a bit bigger.

I hope this inspires you and I hope that you will play along with us on the blog. We can’t wait to see what you create!

Yappy Birthday

Hey all…

Just sharing a card I made for this weeks Tuesday Morning Challenge!

It’s a sketch which was really fun to use!  I love sketches.


I’ve been making a bunch of cards using a stamp set from Mama Elephant called Playful Pups!  Really cute and I have the matching dies!



I used some paper from Doodlebug as well as the little enamel dots.  The sentiment is actually on the inside of the card and says Yappy Birthday which is from the set.  I’m going to send this out to someone who asked for a birthday card for their little girl.

I colored it with copics and added a few white gel dots for some dimension.  I hope you like it and don’t forget to play along in the challenge!

Thanks for stopping by!
