Tuesday Morning Sketches #30

Good Morning! Happy Tuesday - I love Tuesdays. It's the best day of the week to get to share a new sketch with you all because I get to sit back and enjoy the fun of seeing what you do with it! So let's get right to it.

Super easy sketch, right?

So here's what my amazing team of designers did with it...

First up we have our Jr Stamper Featurette. This is from Aly and she's 11 years old. This girl has got it goin' on, let me tell you! She has her own blog and she also has a challenge blog! I am thrilled with the beautiful Valentine card she made using Lindsay's Stamp Stuff bird image from the Love Grows Here set.

When I got this in my email from Gabby I literally gasped. This stunning card features the Iris and Bud single digi-stamp. The colors are wonderful, awesome sentiment. Absolutely breathtaking card!

Here's Angela's card using the dragonfly from the Doodle Flowers Digi-stamp set. Clean, simple and oh so adorable! I love how her photo captured the glitter! This is Angela's last week with us so I want to say thank you for a great month Angela! It's been quite a pleasure.

Up next is another installment to Theresa's fabulous calendar project. The paper she chose is so fun, I love how this turned out. Theresa used stamps from There She Goes and I love the classy tree combined with the funky fun paper. It works! The photo is of Hollyanne and Brendan at Brendan's 14th birthday party.

And this sweet lovebirds card is from Tammy. This is also from the Love Grows Here set. I love her take and twist on the sketch. Great job Tammy!

Lastly is my card and it's all digital (minus the coloring). The base is Kraft card stock and the blue layer is digi paper that I scored at A Cherry on Top. The swirly image is from the same digi-paper pack. The image I used is from the Coffee Talk set. Visit my blog on Thursday if you want more details on this card.

Now it's your turn. As I said, I get excited when I get to sit back and oooh and ahhh over what you make. Have fun!
