Happy March 1st!

It's a great month to celebrate as it's  
National Craft Month
but even better it's.........

1st Birthday!

To kick off the celebration, we are welcoming one of the
most talented designers I know to our wonderful list
of stamp illustrators

If you don't know her, you will and I know you are going
to love her style!

It's also the beginning of a new Sketch Challenge at TCM

This beautiful sketch was designed by the lovely Nina Brackett
and I just love it!

To honor my dear friend Lisa, who is the owner of TCM,
I used this month's sketch to celebrate the anniversary.

This card features the stamp set 'I've Got Your Number'
using beautiful patterned paper from Momenta.

How about the fonts on this set??!!!  They are so bold and I love
having the ability to use large numbers and letters.
Lots of die cutting, decorative punching and layering all in one card!
I am a huge fan of greens and dark blues together.

I started by making my own over-sized banner.  Underneath is one of my
favorite border punches from EK Success.
I cut the Beaded Ovals die from Spellbinders out of white cardstock
and sponged the edges with shell pink ink from A Muse Studio.
I then cut Fancy Tags Two {also from Spellbinders} out of a
textured green cardstock and layered that on top.
The little daisies were punched using a Fiskars punch and embellished with
a small pearl in each.

I hope you will make plans to play in the challenge at some
point in the month......and I hope you will visit TCM often
because we have celebrations galore all month long!

Thanks so much for popping by!!
