Tuesday Morning Sketches #10

Good Morning! I have my coffee here right beside me and I am so enjoying the wonderful samples made by the design team this week! This week's sponsor is Marti from Pez-a-doodle. Marti has a wonderful prize for the lucky winner, too. It's a $15 coupon! Whoo-hoo!!

So here's the sketch. Pretty easy sketch with so much possibility as you'll see by all the wonderful interpretations by the design team.

Up first is Tammy's card and features The Greeting Farm's Laddie Ian. Great colors, perfect for a guy.

This great football card is from Joni. She made this one for her son who starts High School today! Good Luck Kalil! The image is Joni's own from Inktegrity.

This pretty card is by Theresa and she used a stamp from the Polka Dot Pie line, Carnival with Pezzy from Pez-a-doodle. When I talked to Theresa about her card she said that she was thrilled to discover fluer de lis paper in her stash and was more excited with how well it all worked with her card. I think it's fabulous!

This card is from Sheri and it's awesome! Her card features a new set and coordinating skittles from Pez-a-doodle. If you've not seen these, Marti has an exclusive line of stamps called Skittles Stamps. Although these stamps are adorable on their own, they do have coordinating Skittles that are sold separately.

Here's a close-up shot of the spiders. They are so adorable!!! I hate real spiders but these can live in my house quite safely. heehee

Marti joined in the fun again this week with her card featuring Picnicin' Ladybug. She has coordinating printed skittles. Those are tiny ice cream cones! This is such a fabulous set.

My card features two of her sets. First the dragonfly which is another set from the Exclusive Skittle Stamps line. The other stamp is one her mother drew and is designed to work with the Nestabilities Labels Two dies.

Here's a flat view of my card so you can see the dimension of the skittles.

On a more serious note, a fellow blogger Erin has a call for cards right now with some amazing blog candy attached. Her neighbor's daughter Paige (age 13) was in a serious boating accident recently and surgeons have had to remove part of her arm and are working very hard to save the rest. Erin would like you to send a card to Paige - her goal is 100 cards! Easy!! You can read all about it here. The card that I made for this challenge will be the one I send to Paige. Won't you join me?

I'm sure you've finished your coffee by now and you're ready to go! I can't wait see what you make. Don't forget to link it up in Mr. Linky and leave a comment. Have fun! And please help a young girl who can use words of encouragement.
