Tuesday Morning Sketches #57

Good Morning!  Even though I haven't done this in awhile, I still enjoy making cards for my Mom's blog.  I haven't been doing this because I've been busy with school and other things.  But maybe I'm hoping that I'll be able to keep up with my blog in September.  Wish me luck!  Anyway, well here's my card.  I worked very hard on it.  I hope you enjoy this.

I really like the image, though cutting it out was rather challenging.  I used my 2nd favorite color combo:  yellow, blue, green and gray.  Kind of a long combination but it's still pretty.  I mainly used Copics instead of using my own markers.  I like the Copics better because they have shade by shade of pretty much every color.  Shading is pretty fun, too, giving it shadow and dimension is also very cool.

I hope you enjoy my card and all the Tuesday Morning Sketches cards.

Tuesday Morning Sketches #54

Morning everyone!  We have another great sketch over at Tuesday Morning Sketches for you to play with and we also have a super sponsor called Deedee's Digis.

So here's my card...

I enjoyed making this, I did have a little trouble deciding on what to do for the scallop underneath my image.  Other than that my card was pretty fun to make.  Especially when my little brother joined me.

Levi wanted to make a Christmas card with a digi that I had on my craft table.  He had a lot of fun making it but he needed some help.  He got the idea of putting snowflakes on the sentiment when we were trying to use the snowflake border punch.  The punch part didn't work out but the snowflakes look good.  He saw snowflakes pop out from the bottom of the punch and he came up with a great idea.  I also think it's cute that he put a snowflake at the hippos ear - like Niecy on Clean House.

I hope you join us at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  Thank you for stopping by.
