Tuesday Morning Sketches #21

Good Morning! Thanks for joining my fabulous team and I for another sketch! This week we have the sweet Marie of The Greeting Farm sponsoring our challenge. I was so thrilled when she said yes, months ago! It's been hard to keep it a secret.

So, here we go. Here's the sketch we're working with this week:

Pretty easy sketch, right? But as you'll see, my team has some limitless possibilities.

First up we have Fabby Gabby's card. This is Gabby's last feature for her Guest Designer term. She's been awesome and I've absolutely loved having her with us this month. This is from the Miss Anya Dressy collection.

Here's Theresa's adorable card using the new images from one of Marie's new designers. (I'm sorry, I will fill in the proper info when I can get on the TGF site, for some reason it's not connecting.) Those two little mice are so adorable! She's so happy to be sharing this little treat and he's looking at her like "I can't believe she's here with me!"

Tammy did a couple of things for this challenge. She made a beautiful card with the sketch! But she also created a fantastic project to place in her livingroom for her guests to admire. However, it has a purpose.

This is what she said about it: I created a box so that people can write down what they are thankful for. We then read them during dinner and celebrate all that we are thankful for. The box has a divider with paper and a pen on one side and then you just place your filled out page on the right side.

This is a great project and during this time of Thanksgiving. Tammy used the prize image, Navajo Anya and she looks so sweet.

Joni created a beautiful card also using the prize image Navajo Anya. The Fall colors are bright and vibrant! I really like the twine she used for the horizontal and vertical elements of the sketch.

I've decided to try something out. I thought it would be fun to feature a budding, young stamper on the blog. Meet our Jr. DT featurette, my daughter Hollyanne. She created her card using an image from the McSplendid set.

Finally, this is my card and I used an image from the Hope & Grace set. I think this is Grace. I actually received the image and these fabulous papers in a card kit swap and I couldn't wait to play with all the stuff!!

Now it's your turn. You go make a card, layout or project with this week's sketch and then come back here to add a direct link to your project in Mr. Linky. Please leave a comment, too. We look forward to seeing what you've created.

** This challenge is now closed - thank you for joining us! **

    Great sketch, Melissa! But...I think I tanked this week.... Ack! I didn't want to cover the pretty DP, so I used a sheer organdy ribbon, then I couldn't find the charm I wanted to use, then DD made me put the circles on so I was "legal" with the sketch.... This ever happen to you? Anyway, I had fun coloring the chick and I like the glitter!

  11. Thank you! Your blog post will be advertised on the DigiFree Blog Printable Freebie search engine today (look for timestamp: 19 Dec [LA 02:29pm, NY 05:29pm, UK 10:29pm] - 20 Dec [OZ 09:29am]).
