Tuesday Morning Sketches #206 - TMS IS 4 YEARS OLD!!!

Good Morning TMS friends!  I cannot tell you how excited I am to see today arrive.  TMS is having a birthday!  We are 4 years old.  I cannot believe how quickly time flies - that's over 200 sketches and design team inspiration overload.  So to celebrate we are having a party, we're revisiting some awesome sketches that were created by myself and a couple of my awesome DT members and have we got a line up of sponsors for you!  And we're starting 6 hours earlier to give you all plenty of time to play along.

So first of all, here's the sketches we're playing with.  You can choose one to play with or heck, go all out, make all four.  One link per project - that's 4 chances to win one of the fabulous prizes listed below from our FABULOUS sponsors!

These sketches were created by myself, Debbie and Theresa.  After 4 long, wonderful years we sadly say good-bye to Theresa.  My sister has been with me since day 1 of TMS and I am not happy that she's decided to step down.  TMS is a losing a great talent.  Thank you Theresa for being my right hand!

Fabulous sponsors and prizes are....

Bonnie Kohane  - Card Kit featuring Glisten stamp from The Greeting Farm
Jessi Fogan - Set of Crocheted Mats
Fresh Squeezed Stamps - Stamp Set of choice
Raisin Boat - Stamp Set of choice
Freckled Fawn - $20 gift card
Oak Pond Designs - 3 digis of choice
7 sponsors!  7 prizes!  7 lucky, randomly drawn winners!

Let's get this party started!  Up first we have a guest, sponsor Kim of Oak Pond is with us today...

OK to play along we have some simple rules.  1)  No back-linking.  Your projects must be new;  2) Use one of the 4 sketches above.  Flip 'em, twist 'em, rotate 'em - but the sketch must be identifiable;  3)  You are allowed to enter up to 4 times; and 4) Please comment on TMS blog as well as each DT Member's blog.

Have fun!
