Good Morning TMS friends.  Thank you so much for joining us for another favorite sketch challenge.  This week's favorite is Jessi's pick.

We're being sponsored by another returning favorite.  Doodle Pantry!  

Doodle Pantry takes pride in creating a diverse selection of doodling styles, like realistic or whimsical, and all of which are family and kid friendly illustrations.  We hope you enjoy our wide variety of styles for every family occasion!

Here's Jessi's pick - this is a fun sketch!

And here are some great card samples from the best team around....

Featuring: Monster Mash

(I'm out for this week - National Dance Competition was yesterday and I've been busy helping with costumes and getting them sorted.  I tried to work ahead, but it just didn't happen.)

Featuring Balloon Ants (Colored)

Now it's your turn to play along.  We can't wait to see what you create.

Tuesday Morning Sketches #282

Good Morning TMS friends!  Happy New Year and welcome to the first sketch challenge of the year.  As I shared with you yesterday, we'll be revisiting some favorite sketches from 2014.  To kick us off, we have Debbie's pick and she's also sponsoring us this week.

Generous Debbie will be giving a $10 shopping voucher to Sweet n Sassy Stamps.  Eeek!  One of my favorite stamp companies.

Here's Debbie's favorite sketch...

And now let's kick it all off with some amazing inspiration...

And the winner is...

Good Morning!  I hope everyone is doing well and enjoyed their holidays.  It's been quiet and very laid back here.  I am glad to be back on TMS though, it's time to get back to our challenges.  I am so glad to see so many people participated with our Anything Goes challenge, too.  Thank you!

So lets announce the winner of the $10 gift card...

#32 Hazel
** whoo-hoo ** cheers ** cartwheels **

Congratulations Hazel!  Please email me at tuesdaymorningsketches@gmail dot com and enter "Winner TMS #281 Melissa gift card" in the subject box.

We'll see you back here tomorrow.  We'll be kicking off the new year with a favorite past sketch.  For the next several weeks, each one of us we'll be sharing our favorite sketch from 2014.

We will also see some other changes, too as we go.  We'll see sponsors only sporadically, it'll not be often that there is a sponsor every week because of some changes so many of our previous sponsors have made.  We'll also so away with our judged challenges and twists.  We will be featuring you every week though.  Each week the team and I will pick a favorite project to feature on our Monday posts.  Winners, when there is a prize, will still be chosen randomly.

Have a great Monday and we'll see you back here tomorrow when we kick off with Debbie's favorite sketch and she also happens to be sponsoring.

Tuesday Morning Sketches #281

Good Morning!  Sorry I'm a little late posting. Thank you for joining us today.  This week, as we head Hanukkah comes to close, Christmas celebrations begin, followed up by Kwanzaa it is definitely a very busy week.  But we all must have our play time.  I'm sure many of us received lovely crafting gifts that we're itching to play with.  So this week is actually a 2 week challenge and it's time for our Annual Anything Goes.

Every year I try to give my amazing team a well deserved break and plenty of family time before we head into another year of challenging sketches.  And giving our devoted players plenty of that time, too, as well as have their "me" time to play along with us.  As a rule, I don't particularly like Anything Goes challenges because they aren't very challenging.  So my anything goes rule is one, challenge yourself.  Try that technique you've not done before but always wanted to.  Ready to play with watercolor?  Go for it!  Or maybe you were so good that you got a Cameo or an Eclipse that you're just so ready to take on a 3D project.  Anything Goes can be very artfully liberating.

I'm sponsoring this challenge with a gift card or shopping voucher.  To where will be a surprise!

As we enter into this very busy holiday time and right around the corner is a New Year, I want to take a moment to thank you all for playing with us week after week or here and there.  I want to thank my team for designing for us all week after week and creating such beautiful cards that are truly an inspiration.

Buon Natale ~ Joyeaux Noelle ~ Feliz Navidad ~ Merry Christmas


A Pinterest "cased" card using various dies and snowflake stamps.


It's your turn to play.  You have until 8:00 pm EST January 4th to link up.  Have fun!!
