Inspirational Card Sketch #56

Happy Tuesday all!!! You know what that means? It isn't Monday...sorry bad joke. What it really means is that we have a fabulous new sketch from Dawn at Inspirational Card Sketches. For my card I flipped the sketch on it's side and used Surfer Tommy by Heather at Fresh Brewed Designs. The sentiment is from The Greeting Farm My Guy Ian Set. I colored Tommy with copics and tried a cloud technique that Sandra at Paperfuntastics does for clouds. She cuts a cloud like scallop out on a sticky note and either sponges or watercolors arounds the edges. I used distress ink for mine. I think it is a great technique that adds a little more interest to the background. The designer papers are from K&Company. This week our prize sponsor is Whimsy Stamps. Be sure to check them out.

Here is my card for last week's sketch. Our DT and prize sponsor was Sew Many Cards. Isn't this a sweet image? This is actually going to go to a co-worker who just had a baby girl a couple of weeks ago. For this card I used papers from an old Debbie Mumm stack when I thought I was going to do a baby scrapbook for my daughter...she is three now and I have yet to make a page.

Please visit the rest of the DT to see some more wonderful inspiration with this week's sketch:

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!

OMG Mary you are so talented. The clouds are perfect, will have to try that technique from our friend Sandra. My fav card though is that cutie baby card. Your coloring on both is phenomenal but I really love the baby on the cloud. Awwwwww....

Yes, it was a bad joke but it made me laugh. Thanks for that!!! Hugs.

I am so cold at the moment I have my hood on and am shaking, lol ... so I dream for the summer and to be on the beach like he is. I love those papers and the image in the corner!
