Let Your Dreams Set Sail


Hello and a very happy July 4th to everyone who celebrates it today.

It's time for the Tuesday Morning Sketch challenge #410. I'm happy and delighted to tell you I've been added to the DT of this fun challenge and I look forward to playing with some great sketches in the future. This week's challenge is to follow the sketch and use die cuts.

Tuesday Morning Sketches is celebrating their 8th anniversary with a month-long list of challenges and weekly prizes plus a big prize to be won at the end of the month, so be sure to play along with us for your chance to be in the drawing. 

My card today includes 3 little sailboat die-cuts done with an I.O. die set. I used GinaMarieDesigns stitched square dies to cut the Lawn Fawn blue dsp squares and used a snippet piece of Lawn Fawn plaid dsp along with a Taken with Teal mat. The snippet of pastel blue paper was done with a CB swiss dots ef and the sentiment was computer generated. I found 3 tiny teal stars in my stash and added one to the sails on the boats.

Here's the sketch if you want to play along and remember to use a die cut which is this week's theme. You can find the challenge HERE.

Thanks for stopping by and as you celebrate Independence day, please be careful and have fun too!
