Tuesday Morning Sketches #28

Good Morning! Welcome to another challenge here at Tuesday Morning Sketches. We are so happy that you've come to join us this week!

As announced yesterday, we have Korin from Sweet n Sassy Stamps sponsoring us this week and I am so thrilled! SNSS is one of my absolute favorite companies - not only because Korin has super awesome stamps and digi's (her Cocoa line is one my faves) but because Korin and the people she surrounds herself with have such a strong faith in God.

Today's sketch... LOL, nope no sketch this week. Time for theme challenge. I guess it's a theme. This week's challenge is:

Buttons & Bows

Simply create your card, project or layout using Buttons and Bows. You choose the medium... real buttons or stamped ones... real ribbon or stamped images of bows. Whatever you want, but whatever you do BOTH must be present. Then take a picture, post it on your blog or online gallery and then come back here to direct link it in Mr. Linky. And make sure you do your very best - this is a Judged Challenge.

Now for some inspiration, here's this week's DT line-up:

Up first we have Theresa's gorgeous calendar page. I love how the ribbon is laced on the page! Gorgeous dancer, too! (Ahem)

Here's Tammy's card using the image that Korin graciously gave to play with. Sooo darn cute!

Gabby is next with two cards. I love the simple elegance to this card. So striking!

And this is from another image that Korin gave to us - I knew Gabby would do something amazing with it and she did!

This cute little hooty is from Angela. Love all the buttons! Fabulous!!

And finally here is my card. I used Be Mine Cocoa and the Valentine's Sentiment set from SNSS. I love this little mouse.

OK - it's your turn! We can't wait to see what you come up with!

** This challenge is now closed. Thank you for joining us this week! **
