New Card for Tuesday Morning Sketches - #192

Though I had a lovely time away over Easter and Spring Break, it is wonderful to be home again, semi-unpacked and back in my craft room.  I have a few cards owing out and am working through them. My sister Nina encouraged me to “marry” this need with a challenge by Tuesday Morning Sketches.   This week’s challenge is sponsored by Cas-ual Friday Stamps who are providing a $25 gift certificate for some lucky winner.  Thank you for the opportunity! 

Without further ado, here is the sketch for

Tuesday Morning Sketches #192


And here is my take on this sketch:


I’m afraid all the designer paper is “scraps” and therefore I cannot give tribute.  The stamp is one I treated myself to over spring break - it’s “House With Plant” by Hero Arts. I noticed Michaels carries several very VERY nice Hero Arts stamps, sure wish I lived closer to a city - just at times like this. Winking smile  The sentiment is part of a Katie and Co stamp.

I stamped directly onto some designer paper and then I painted bits in using my pearlescent paints. 

I leave you with signs of spring from my little corner of the world, and words  of inspiration:

After the rigours of winter,

Oh, the pleasure that colour can bring!

Transparent and gold, a joy to behold;

Quite suddenly - it’s Spring!

Song of Solomon 2:11-13

The winter is over; the rains have stopped;
in the countryside the flowers are in bloom.

This is the time for singing;
the song of doves is heard in the fields.

Figs are beginning to ripen;
the air is fragrant with blossoming vines.

my heart and my eyes Rejoice!
