Happy Birthday, Tuesday Morning Sketches!!

Good morning! This week is a HUGE celebration for Tuesday Morning Sketches - four years old. Can you believe it? Four years, over 200 sketches...this calls for a party! And a party it is. This week there are SEVEN prizes up for grabs. SEVEN lucky winners - and all drawn randomly, so everyone has an equal chance of winning. There are 4 sketches to choose from, and you can play along as many times as you like - but please remember, no backlinking!

We are also saying goodbye to Theresa this week - Theresa is the one who urged me to play along at TMS in the first place, and we are all going to miss her.

Now, 7 prizes mean 7 sponsors - these generous people and companies have offered up:

Bonnie Kohane  - Card Kit featuring Glisten stamp from The Greeting Farm
Fresh Squeezed Stamps - Stamp Set of choice
Raisin Boat - Stamp Set of choice
Freckled Fawn - $20 gift card
Oak Pond Designs - 3 digis of choice

Wait, that's only 6, you're thinking. I'm the seventh - here's a picture of the set of crocheted mats I'm sending to one of the winners!
6 ovals - 2 white, one each pink, chocolate, cream, and KRAFT
6 small circles - 2 white, one each pink, chocolate, cream, and KRAFT

Kraft is a new colour for me - I haven't even added it to the Crocheted Mats page yet! 

Here are the four sketches to choose from this week - designed by Melissa, Theresa, and Debbie.

I've used Theresa's sketch for my card - I absolutely love the Pretty Bird set from Raisin Boat. This peacock is my favourite :)

Supplies: stamps from Raisin Boat; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Bic Markers; Amy Tangerine patterned paper; pink & purple crepe paper; pink rhinestone strips from Dollarama; classic small circle Nesties

Don't forget to visit the rest of my teamies!

AND if you haven't yet, stop by my pal Barb's blog & see what awesome goodies she's got for sale - lots of stamps & Nesties at great prices! 

I'll be right back with my Shopping our Stash post :)

A party it is! I love your card - a beautiful peacock and such a lovely sentiment. Love your crochet mats, I've been meaning to e-mail you to get some but I am so disorganized that I haven't gotten to it yet. They make such beautiful cards.
