Good Morning!  See anything different on my blog? I'm on Pinterest now! If you'd like to follow me, you can click on the Pinterest button at the top of my sidebar. Am I the last person to get on Pinterest? That site is so addicting! :)

Also, before I get to the sketch and my card, I have an exciting announcement.  Theresa, after many hours, has gotten Tuesday Morning Sketches up on Facebook.  Isn't that great! Please "like" us on Facebook!

Now it's time for another exciting challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches!  We have a fun sketch and, of course, a fabulous sponsor - Laurie Wilson of Doodle Pantry.  Yay!!

Here's Theresa's sketch for the week:

And, here's my interpretation:

I am loving that digital Quirky Mouse. He looks so satisfied and happy. This stamp also comes with some cute sentiments, but for this card, I typed my sentiments in Word, to customize them a bit, then printed them on a transparency and rubbed them onto the cardstock.

The inside is very plain, with just the second half of the sentiment.

That's my card for today! Now, head on over to Tuesday Morning Sketches and see what the other Design Team members have to share with you today. Awesome stuff, I promise.

Doodle Pantry has some of the cutest digi stamps. :D Wouldn't it be great to snag something from there for free? Well, to have the chance, you have to play along with us! So, what are you waiting for? You have until Sunday at 8:00 PM EST to link your creation up on the TMS blog.

Lily Pad has a Patterned Paper Challenge running until February 23, so I'll be entering this card in that challenge, as well. 

This was supposed to be my last week as a Guest Designer at Tuesday Morning Sketches, but Melissa invited me to guest design for February, too, so you'll be seeing me there for a few more weeks! Oh, Yay-uh!!!

Oh how Cute!! I love that little mouse! But I guess I'm the last person to know about Pinterset, just heard about it last week and now your a member too... I guess I need to get with it...
Talking about getting with it... I got to ask when you said:I typed my sentiments in Word, to customize them a bit, then printed them on a transparency and rubbed them onto the cardstock. I never heard of prining on a transparency and the rubbing it onto cardstock... dose it have to be a special printer? or anything else I should know?

Theresa said...

Okay, you knocked this out of the park too!! This is why I love you, you can take a fun quirky image like this and make it look beyond amazing. We definitely need to talk about using that transparency.

Oh, and if I have my way you'll be staying with TMS as long as possible.
