Tuesday Morning Sketchers DT card and a reminder

Well something a bit different today because Michelle the owner of The Rusty Pickle's Digital Delights Shop is sponsoring the challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches and most of the Rusty Pickles DT have agreed to make cards for the new sketch as shown below

Isn't it a super sketch done by the owner of the Challenge blog Melissa Craig. If you win the challenge you could win the five images showcased on the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog.

Check out what the rest of this week’s team has to offer!

Here is my interpretation of the sketch and I really enjoyed this one.

I have used the beautiful Peacock image from Rusty Pickles which you can find here. As you can see in the close up picture I have gone wild with the old glitter, I love it to bits and thank goodness for the quickie glue pen too.


I then shaded around the picture with green and blue chalk and then I mounted the picture onto blue miri card. The papers I have used are from the Artylicious CD Rom called Peacock Summer Party aren't they gorgeous and perfect for this image. The whole thing is mounted on a black base card. Also the gems are from my stash!!

As you all know me welll I can't just make a card and not enter it in a few challenges so here they are:-

Cute Card Thursday - Swirly Girly,

Stamp Something - Glitzy,

Pile It On - Tinsel Town and

Cute Daisy May Challenge - Twinkle, Twinkle

Now that is not all folks, about a week ago I mentioned that there is a fantastic andy going on at The Rusty Picle's Digital Delights Store - you have the chance of winning these -

and are they not just too delicious for words. here is a reminder of what you need to do to get your hands on these gorgeous pens.

1. Get one entry for every $10 worth of images purchased from the Rusty Pickle

2. Get THREE entries for posting about this challenge on your blog.

3. Get ONE entry each week that you post about it again between now and December 25.
