Tuesday Morning Sketches 1st Birthday! Week 4

Good Morning!  This is our final week of our month long celebration.  I hope you've been having as great a time as I have been.  As announced yesterday we have DRS Designs joining us this week.  The prize they're offering is a $10 shopping voucher.  Awesome prize.

This week's challenge is, again, use a past sketch but we're all feeling a bit hot and sticky with higher temperatures, so we thought we'd just try to cool off a bit and bring in a little chilly weather with Christmas in July.  DRS Designs was very kind and generous to send us some Christmas stamps to play with and here's what the team came up with.

First up we have Theresa with this gorgeous Ornament card (sketch TMS 12).  She used some of my favorite Christmas paper and I just love how she created a coordinating ornament.  Great job Theresa.  By the way, Theresa still has blog candy up for grabs.  This is your last week to get in on it - click here for the details.

This adorable card is from Angela (sketch TMS #43) and I just don't think it could be any sweeter!  I really love its country feel.

Up next is Cammy, June Guest Designer and she created a very sweet, somewhat non-traditional Christmas card (sketch TMS #2) using an adorable digi from Bugaboo.

Up next is Hollyanne and I think she did a great job with her card!  Her sweet little critter is holding onto some yummy candy-canes and her card (sketch TMS #23) is all decked out in holiday colors.

These two cards (sketches TMS #13 and #32) are from Jackie and boy did she go all out!!  These are absolutely gorgeous cards!!

Here's another exquisite card and this one is from Janice, May Guest Designer.  I just love the embossing she did on her background and that center snowflake is perfect.  Janice is featuring sketch TMS #45.

And here's Jessica's very pretty snowflake card (sketch TMS #4).  I can almost feel the chill in the air when I look at the swirling snowflakes.

And lastly is my card.  I'm pretty sure that I've made it very clear that snowmen are one of my most favorite things ever so I was thrilled to get to play with this stamp.  I used sketch TMS #2 and I was so pleased when this card came together so easily!  I'm sorry, but this card is not available for the Weekly Card Give-Away - please read on to find out why.

Alright, now here's the challenge with a chance to win a couple of prizes.  The usual is go make your card with any past sketch and add a Christmas theme for a chance to win the $10 voucher from DRS Designs.  And of course just entering gets you a chance to win one of these awesome cards by the design team.  But here's the extra....  visit each of the team members blogs and leave a comment for a chance to win a special card kit.  This kit will include 2 6x6 Christmas designer papers, 2 6x6 solid coordinating colored card stock, ribbons, embellishments, the card I made plus the DRS Designs stamp I used to make it with.  But you have to comment on each blog in order to be entered into the drawing!  To make it easy, we'll make this a blog hop of sorts... here's your path.  You don't have to do this in any kind of order.


Now let's go have some fun!
