Good Morning!  I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.  It's getting really hot here in FL - highs in mid to upper 90's.  It's not even summer yet.  I do hope this doesn't mean we're not in for the rainy season, we really need the precipitation.

I want thank everyone for joining us this week - it's been a pleasure seeing your cards and the different perspectives of the sketch.  I also want to give a big thanks to All Dressed Up for sponsoring this week.  The winner of the 2 digital images is....

Tuesday Morning Sketches #403

Good Morning TMS friends.  Are you ready for another fun sketch?  Today's sketch was inspired by Janice.  It's so adorable!  It also gives you much opportunity to use up some scraps and easy enough to mass produce.

I usually never promote other blogs that aren't sponsoring TMS and honestly, I'm sure Jennifer McGuire doesn't even know I'm alive.  However, she's posted this video on You Tube and is challenging card makers to create cards to share with others just for the sake of sharing.  Post your card on Facebook or Instagram with #sharehandmadekindness - she may even give away a prize.  I just want to challenge you to make cards and share them with your neighbor, friends, family, maybe that Mom in the check out line of your grocery store who needs a little pick-me-up.

Here's the sketch...

Our sponsor this week is All Dressed Up and the prize is 2 images of choice.  A huge thanks to All Dressed Up for sharing images with us to showcase, too.

The team created these fabulous cards...

Are you ready to play along?  Good!  Let's get started.

And the winner is.....

Good Morning TMS friends!  I hope everyone had a great weekend.  I sure did!!  I got a lot of cleaning done, I got a lot of crafting done and I got to talk to my son for 5 minutes.  Seems the littlest things bring the greatest joy.

Thank you all so much for joining us this past week!  I have to apologize to all, I didn't get around for comments this week - it's busy for me at work and with a full week and day or two of vacation coming up for high school graduation and Navy basic training graduation I have to work very long hours.  The weekends are mine to get house chores done, what crafting I need to get done and it's just not leaving me a lot of computer time.  I see everyone's entries and I ooooh and ahhhh over them but I just don't get to leave my written sentiment.  Please understand.

Alrighty!  Let's see who wins this gorgeous die and embossing bird set!  I'm going to have a hard time letting this go!
