Tuesday Morning Sketches #74

Only one more day left of 2010!  What a year it has been. I wanted to end the year with some stamping and spent the day, on and off, creating some cards with some of the scraps of paper I have in a bin.  I actually have a HUGE tub from IKEA into which I load my small pieces of this and that paper!  It is OVERFLOWING and so I decided to try to limit myself to building cards with scraps from that bin!  Does anyone else have that bin in their craft room too? 

So I decided to play along with Melissa Craig and her awesome DT on this cute sketch she created for the Tuesday Morning Sketches Challenge Blog!!  I changed the circle to an oval but used my scissors to create the fun wave in the paper that she designed.  Using some of the Deck the Halls DSP that I had left over, I decided to make a Thank You card for my stash.  I used the colours in the DSP to help me choose the colours for colouring my image.  In the end I went with Pear Pizzazz, Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake.

I added some of the Pearls at the top left hand side of the card and a little of the Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding ribbon at the bottom.  The sentiment comes from Fabulous Phrases once again!!  I used my Oval Nesties for the main image.  That image comes from a retired SU! set  called "Music Expressions" that I got last year and it is one of my most favourite sets that SU! has ever put out!!!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you get the chance to play along with this great sketch this week too!!
