Tuesday Morning Sketches #338

Good Morning TMS friends!  I hope everyone's week is off to a great start.  Life is always busy busy, rush rush.  I do hope you'll find some time to play along with this sketch this week because it's a fun one. 

Jenée is sponsoring this week and just look at the goodies she's offering one very lucky winner....

Three brand new Spellbinders embossing folders and three brand new clear stamp sets (two Brenda Walton sets and a Clear Stamps set).

Here's the sketch....

And here's what the team did with it....

Welcome to our newest team member!!

I love how each of the team members interpreted this sketch and I can't wait to see what you do with it, too!

Don't forget about the DT call we're having.  If you didn't join us last week, you still can create a card with last week's sketch and link it with your sketch for this week.  Do not create 2 links.  This will throw numbers for the Random draw.  Just put your title as Name DT 2 and in your post have both cards.

Have fun!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #337

Good Morning TMS friends!  Thank you so much for joining us for our last revisited, favorite sketch.  Kris picked our sketch and is our sponsor this week.  She's offering one fantastic prize!  I'm sorry overseas friends, only US or Canada will be eligible for this prize due to the high shipping costs.  But please still play along!

Here's the sketch that we'll be playing along with...

And here's a photo of what Kris will be offering....

Prize - Grab bag of stamps (20+)
 plus a package of heart doilies and some heart lace ribbon.

And now for some inspiration from the team...

I have a special announcement to make as well.  We're looking to add a couple more members to the TMS design team.  We'll be adding one very nice, very talented lady next week but I'd like to add two more.  If you're interested in being a part of our team, please follow these steps to apply.

1) You must play along with all 4 sketch challenges the month of February.
2)  You may include other challenges in your card(s) but not another sketch challenge.
3) Each of your blog posts must link back to TMS.
4) When you link your card each week, your name and "DT1" (or DT2, DT3, DT4 depending on which week it is) needs to be the link up name, not the name of your card or blog post.  (i.e., Feb 2:  Melissa DT1, Feb 9: Melissa DT2, etc.)
5) I'm not going to ask you to tell us why you want to be on the team, but if you want to, we'd love to hear it.

Alright everyone!  Have fun.

Tuesday Morning Sketches #336

Good Morning TMS friends!  I hope for everyone that lives in snowy places that you survived the weekend storms.  I saw pictures of my old neighborhood in WV and was so glad to see snow from Florida!  It wasn't warm here by Florida standards, we even saw a little frost, but I was really glad that I wasn't in it.

So this week's sketch is one that Debbie picked.  I like this sketch, too.  It's easy to work with and is really open to interpretation.  Debbie is also our sponsor this week.

Here's the sketch...

And here's the prize she's offering.  Hampton Art "Let It Snow" stamp & die set.  Debbie also decided to spice things up a big, but it's completely optional, let's make this a Winter theme challenge.  I know some of you are probably sick of the snow, but it's cute on a card!

Let's grab a nice hot cup of something and cozy up a bit while we look at what the team did with this sketch...



(Well wishes, too. Jessi is recovering from a fall)

Alright, you can still sit and enjoy that cuppa, please visit our blogs - leave a little extra love.  Then you can come back here and play along.  Have fun!

And the winner is....

Good Morning TMS friends!  I do hope you had a great week.  It's been busy here which is the norm I guess.  Lots of running around - sometimes I feel like I work harder on the weekend than I do the week.

You shared some really great cards this week, too!  Well, you always do, but you know what I mean.  A great big thanks to you all for joining.  And a super huge thanks to our new friend and sponsor, Jennifer.  The winner of that fantastic stamp set is....

#7 Amy Marshall

Tuesday Morning Sketches #335

Good Morning TMS friends.  Thank you for joining us for another revisited sketch challenge.  This week's pick is mine (Melissa) and I chose this one for two reasons - one it's a favorite one by Debbie that I enjoyed taking creative license with by taking these elements and flipping them, stretching them out (you'll see) and not taking them literally but rather using them as placement and two because I didn't get to play along when it originally debuted.

We are joined this week by a new sponsor.  Jennifer Tomasic Sinsley, Close to My Heart Independent Demonstrator.  She is offering Assorted Edges (D size stamp set).

Here's the sketch we're working with...

And here's what the team did with it.... 

Now it's your turn to play along.  We can't wait to see what you've done with this sketch this go 'round.  Have fun.
