Happy 11th Birthday to Tuesday Morning Sketches (TMS 562)

Hello, everyone! We have a special sketch for you this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches!  It's our 11th birthday!  Woot Woot!  We're having a big celebration and there are some fabulous prizes!  I hope you will be inspired to join our challenge!  I went with a winter holiday card!


I used an adorable topper that I won a couple months ago from Polkadoodles (thank you!) called Sleightime Friends Shopping - Winnie White Christmas.  I die-cut a scalloped frame (Gina Marie Designs) from red glitter cardstock (Darice) to frame the topper. I stamped a sentiment (Lawn Fawn) in red and die-cut a fancy oval (Nellie's). I embossed a snowflake background (Die'sire Embossalicious Let it Snow) and then arranged some scraps of patterned paper (Studio Calico Magical) according to the sketch.  I adhered the framed topper, popped up on craft foam, and then finished the card by adhering a few red snowflake sequins.

Here's our Sketch 562, designed by Melissa.  It was way back on July 7, 2009, when Melissa published the first sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches, so we thought bringing it back would be a fun way to celebrate our 11th birthday!  As always, I'm looking forward to seeing what you make!


I would like to support the following challenges: 2 Crafty Critter Crazies AG w Critters 1/5; A Perfect Time to Craft AG UE; ABC Christmas N for No Fuss (the topper was already printed; I keep embossed snowflake panels at the ready; the patterned papers were scraps) UE; Artsystamper Digitals Red, White, and Blue 1/3; Arty Divas 25 AG 1/5; Cardz TV 118 AG 1/3; Carlin's Map Paradise AG 1/3; Crafter's Castle 31 AG 1/3; Crafts Galore Encore AG 1/3; Crafty Creations 411 AG 1/3; Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas 497 AG Optional Man or Boy UE;  Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper July UE; Creatalicious 190 AG Optional Add Texture 1/3; Creative Fingers 189 AG 2/3; Cute Card Thursday AG UE; Die Cut Divas Christmas in July 1/4; DL.ART July AG UE 1/d; DL.ART Thankful Thursday Red, White, and Blue 1/2; Gem of a Challenge 14 AG 1/3; Kat Scrappiness July Red, White, and White UE; Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Always AG 1/3; Polkadoodles 27 AG 1/3; Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Bright and Cheerful 1/5; The House That Stamps Built DCC JL120 ~ Christmas in July 1/3; The Outlawz Sunday Songs and Rhymes Christmas in July - I was inspired by the words: "Now it's winter and the snow is piling high"; The Paper Funday AG Twist The Great Outdoors 1/4; Word Art Wednesday 446-447 AG w Uplifting Sentiment 1/5 wk1
