It's a beautiful Tuesday Morning (TMS#2)

Good Morning TMS fans! Thanks for stopping by for another challenge. I have some really super cards to share with you from my amazing Design Team. They are the best team ever!!

The sketch....

This was a really fun sketch to draw - it's funny how once I got started drawing one day, I couldn't stop! This is actually the 7th sketch that I drew a few weeks ago when I started formulating the idea of this challenge blog.

This gorgeous card was created by Theresa. Where has the time gone? Boy I wonder that myself a lot! Isn't this card just beautiful?! I love her attention to detail, right down the stitching she did. While she was visiting here in June, she purchased a little sewing machine - it's cool to see what she's doing with it. Lovely!

This beautiful card is from Karin and I LOVE her interpretation of the sketch. It's awesome!! The basic elements of the sketch are there, but this is so Karin to take it to the next level! She is really good at coloring and she's particularly fantastic with super defined line stamps. Very nicely done.

This little Sweetie is from Joni's collection at Inktegrity. I am so excited that Joni has decided to stick around and will continue to design for Tuesday Morning Sketches. The colors she chose are fabulous (they also work for TPE's challenge, too) and Sweetie just pops from the card. You could almost see the juice that's dripping down her chin!

And here's my card. I'm pleased with the results that I got from using Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Primative Bird and he's only $1!! For my base I used Kraft card stock, then the next layer I used is Chocolate Chip. My decorative paper is from a Martha Stewart Classic Woodland paper pack that I picked up while grocery shopping at Wal-Mart. It doesn't count if it's included in the groceries, right? Did you know they now carry Crop-a-diles? I gotta figure out how to squeeze that into the grocery budget! Anyway, I used my Koh-i-noor pencils & OMS to color the image and I am so pleased with how well it blended.

Thank you to Lindsay for being our super awesome sponsor this week. Be sure to click on her blog link because her Design Team (me, too) will be playing along on Thursday.

As you can see, I got Mr. Linky set up. So when you link your card be sure to link directly to your entry. I look forward to this next week and seeing what everyone creates!!
