Tuesday Morning Sketches #485

Good Morning TMS friends.  Thank you for joining us today and Happy New Year!  This is when we usually kick off the new year featuring our favorite sketches of 2018.  But it is with great sadness to share that our former design team member, Jessi Fogan, passed away on December 27th.  You may remember that Jessi stepped down from our team August 2016 with the hopes of returning soon thereafter.  However her health only continued to decline.  So to honor Jessi we will be featuring one of her last sketches.  Please keep Jessi's family, she leaves her husband Rob and 2 sons Connor and Riley, in your thoughts and prayers.

Enjoy this sketch and go after it with reckless abandon!  Add buttons, do some crazy artsy stuff - do it like Jessi would have!

Our super cute prize this week...

Now let's see what the design team created to share with you.  It's a little hard to come back from vacation but this team came back in all their glory!


And now it's your turn.  Have fun, being out of the box, if you knew her - channel your inner Jessi.

Tuesday Morning Sketches #484

Hello!  Happy Tuesday.  Well it's finally here - we're a week before Christmas and it's time for our Annual Anything Goes challenge.  I do mean ANYTHING but it does have rules.

Your project can be anything that you make, but it must be new, no back linking.  It must be tasteful, please no crude or vulgar images.  You can link up to 3 projects and only participate in 2 additional challenges.

So what's up for grabs?

This prize package contains the brand new Mini-Wreath Builder set by Gina K, Festive Berries Distress Oxide ink, Primary Sherbert embossing powder by Wow!, a package of green sequins and 12 sheets of Santa's Workshop double sided paper by Carta Bella.  Yes, a couple of these items came in the December Simon Says Stamp card kit and the Gina K mini-wreath builder I placed a special order to get one so I can share it with one of TMS players.

If you are a winner that lives outside the United States, you will receive a $15 gift certificate from your favorite papercraft store.

You have two weeks to play along but before you go, let's see what the team made to inspire you...

Okay - you can go create now!  Have fun!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #483

Good day TMS friends.  Well we made it another year!  I can't believe the time has finally come to reveal our very last sketch of 2018.  Where has the time gone?

I think you'll like this sketch...

Our prize this week is a Bo Bunny "I Heart Stars" clear stamp set.  This will in time for one lucky winner's Valentine's cards.

Our design team created some beautiful cards to share with you.  But before we get this week's inspiration, this week we say good-bye to our very good friend and amazing designer Carol.  She has decided it is time to step down.  We will miss her so much and I'm sure you will, too.



Will be back in January after the holidays are over.




It is now your turn!  Have a lot of with this sketch.
