Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge #140: Batches of Fun

Tuesday, April 3, 2012

Hello Friends! It's Tuesday Morning Sketch time and we've got Doodle Pantry as our sponsor this week.  They have such fun images. I'm using a set called "Baking Ants" today, with this week's sketch, which is by our own Marie Oberg!

Now, I'll admit, if I walked into my kitchen and saw ants all over my counter, I'd probably go berserk getting rid of them, but this image is super cute. Those pesky little guys look like they are having a blast. The sentiment is part of the Baking Ants set, but I didn't print it directly on the cs. I printed it on a transparency, then rubbed it onto the cs. I could easily have saved the rub-on step if I'd printed it on the cs, but I really like how rub-on sentiments look, versus computer-generated. The gold die cut behind the sentiment is cut from a piece of gold duct tape. 

I used a transparency rub-on for the inside sentiment, too, which is also part of the Baking Ants set.

I hope you'll join us for this week's Tuesday Morning Sketch challenge--it's always so much fun! All the deets are on the TMS blog, and while you're there, check out the amazing creations by the rest of the DT! I can't wait to see what you create!!!

Hi Cheryl!
Sorry to hear you and your daughter had trouble with the yarn eggs! Did you let them dry overnight? The yarn should stick to the balloons while the glue is wet. Then let them dry overnight before popping the balloon. Then they should work just fine. Think the only other trouble you might have is if the yarn is too thin, like perhaps baker's twine. But other than that, this truly should work.
By the way, your card is SO adorable!! Love it!
