TSG and Tuesday Morning Sketches Challenge!

Good Morning everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! We had an awesome one! We had a little dusting on Saturday morning, then on Sunday the weather was glorious! We could finally venture outside without a jacket on....it was fabulous! And it's supposed to be this way all week! I can't tell you how good it feels to feel the warmth of the sun on my face again! *sigh*

I made what seemed like a bazillion cards this weekend (most of them for the Dirty Dozen Gallery), but one of them was this one for the Tuesday Morning Sketches Challenge that There She Goes is sponsoring this week!

Ever since I got this My Little Friend stamp set in the mail a few weeks back, I've been dying to color this mushroom house up! But it didn't work with any of the layouts I have seen....up until now! (Please head on over to the TMS blog to check out the sketch and other details.)

To make this card, I first stamped the image with StazOn 'Jet Black' ink, then cut it out with an oval nestie, making sure to off-center the image so I left enough room for the sentiment. Then I colored it in with my SU reinkers and aquapainter brush. Then I stamped out the 'gnome' words from one of the sentiments in the set onto some kraft cardstock and the 'sweet' word from the BOL Holiday Additions set to create this custom sentiment! The background was time consuming, but it followed the sketch, and I'm not usually one to shy away from a challenge! ;)

Well, I hope you can join us and the TMS crew this week! I know a few of the Trendsetters are playing along, so you should too!

See you tomorrow!
