Tuesday Morning Sketches


Good Tuesday Morning!

What a fun day today is starting out to be! The Digi Shack is sponsoring the Tuesday Morning Sketches.

I am really getting into the mood for creating cards and papercrafts for the upcoming holidays. This is totally not like me to be way ahead of any holiday so it must just be a paper art thing. With all the cool images and products available, it is certainly understandable. I will be concentrating on Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas cards over the next several months with lots of other cards and papercrafts in between the holidays things.

Today I chose the Christmas holiday and one of the new images from The Digi Shack. Not only is it a new image but we have a uber talented artist working with us at the Digi Shack; she's Tracey Malnofski . I just love her designs! This little stocking was so fun and easy to color. I chose the traditional red-green holiday colors, but it would look great in any color combo and super fab paper pieced. And paper piecing is so easy to do with digi images...just print right onto DSP and cut out.

If you get a chance, hop over to Tuesday Morning Sketches and play along. And don't forget yesterday was Manic Monday Freebie Fun Day at the Digi Shack where you can get a free digi image of a barrell of apples this week only.

Have a great week!
