Merry & Bright, A Tuesday Morning Sketch

I try to do a Wednesday morning FB Live video but yesterday I was delayed to mid afternoon!  I didn't even do a What's On Your Workdesk picture or link.  But I have a good reason.  Yesterday my hubby had an endoscopy to check his throat.  A few years ago he had a couple procedures to "fix" a problem, Barrett's Disease.  It's caused by acid reflux and Dean had that bad and for years.  We had to be at Arizona Digestive Institute by 8 am.  He was done by about 10 and we then had breakfast at the Ole Mexican Grill (great food!). After a few errands we headed home. We decided to take a frontage road from Green Valley to home but only got about 4 miles and had to turn around.  There was a wild fire just west of the road (north and east of our home about 3 - 4 miles). So, after a long day we got home about 2.

Anyway, I got my FB Live done after 2 tries!  The first try I lost signal.  During the 2nd my dad called.  You can hear the ring on the video.  I wasn't going to try again.  I finished and it's now on YouTube.  Are you ready to see what I made?

First the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches, #508.

I like the challenges and the inspiration from this group of artists and enjoy seeing what others do with the sketch. Now my card...

It is time for me to prep for my Christmas in July card class.  I think the gals will like this.  I used a die set from Spellbinders,  Christmas Tree (S3-361) that I really like! The itty bitty sentiment is from an FSJ stamp set, Tag Elements (no longer available) that I love.

I didn't use a lot of pop dots as the Fashion Gold Dots would make this card a bit more expensive to mail.

So please head over to Tuesday Morning Sketches and check out the inspiration cards and the cool cards using it!
