Tuesday Morning Sketches 1st Birthday!

Good Morning!  I am so excited about today!! Today is Tuesday Morning Sketches 1st Birthday!!  We are celebrating all month long with great sponsors, prizes, blog candy, past Guest Designers and guess what, no surprises!!  I know you're scratching your heads on that last item.  Let me explain.  This whole month is all about what we really liked about Tuesday Morning Sketches for the last year, so the entire month will be "feature your favorite sketch."  Each week the design team and you will be showcasing your cards or projects using sketches from the past year.

Do you all love the new look of Tuesday Morning Sketches?  A very lovely lady named Laura made the new look.  She also designed blinkies, too.  Unfortunately, I've hit a few technical difficulties and haven't been able to reach Laura yet.  So, no worries, I will have those available very soon!  Also, the header isn't supposed to look like it does, I need her to fix that for me too.  So I'm sorry that TMS isn't fully in it's party clothes, but we'll get there!

So let's get on with the first week of the party!  First off, I am sponsoring this week's challenge as well as my friend Melyssa from Whimsie Doodles.  This means we'll have TWO randomly drawn winners for prizes and what the heck, we'll go with TWO randomly drawn Weekly Card Give Away winners. 

Here are the rules:
1.  For each week that you participate, you must use a different sketch each week.  The same timeframe will apply - you have from Tuesday 7am EST to Sunday 7pm EST.
2.  I do have a pretty amazing blog candy box available, so here's how you can get it.  (I will picture it later in the month.)  You need to participate each week in order to be in the drawing for the blog candy.
3.  For those of you that can't participate each week, it's OK, smaller candy packages will be available each week, too, but those will be mystery goodie bags.

Let's start this party with some inspiration from the team...

Here's Angela's adorable card using TMS #47.  This is so cute!!

Please welcome July's Guest Designer, Jackie Randolph.  Her sweet fishy birthday card features a new release from Whimsie Doodles.  She used TMS #5.

This sweet mouse card can only be from Jessica.  She has a way with these House Mouse images!  Jessica used TMS #1.

This stunning card is from October 09 Guest Designer Shelly Bobrowski.  She used TMS #14.

This super cute card also featuring Whimsie Doodle's newest release is from the fabulous Sheri Gilson, September 09 Guest Designer.  Sheri used TMS #1.

This absolutely fabulous card is from Theresa.  I love all the swirls, the paper, the stamps!  She used TMS #6.  Now you're going to want to head on over to Theresa's blog because it's a year old, too, and she is offering an amazing blog candy package!

This sweet card is from our Jr. DT Member, Hollyanne.  She featured another image from the Shella-Bration set from Whimsie Doodles, using sketch TMS #6.

And finally, my card.  I used sketch TMS #3 which is the same sketch that Whimsie Doodles sponsored when TMS began. 

It's your turn.  Go make a card or project using your favorite sketch.  When you post it on your blog, be sure to post which sketch you used.  Come back here and enter a direct link to your creation and leave us a comment.  Have fun!
