Tuesday Morning Sketches

Good morning! It's time for another sketch challenge from Melissa over at Tuesday Morning Sketches. Our sponsor this week is Deedee's Digis. The image I'm using today is called "Caity Caterpiller". Doesn't she just have the flirtiest eyes? I love those lashes!

I love this DP from My Mind's Eye; it has the nicest texture, like cardstock. I've paired it with SU! Almost Amethyst (retired) and Real Red. It's kind of a funky combo, but I like it. Caity is colored with Prismas to match.

Image: Deedee's Digis "Caity Caterpiller"
Paper: G.P. 110, SU! Almost Amethyst and Real Red, My Mind's Eye DP
Embellies: SU! Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon, Me and My Big Ideas Rhinestones
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, EK Success 3D Dots

I have a question I am hoping someone can answer.... When printing digi images, I use the G.P. 110 because it is a bit lighter weight. Thicker cardstocks won't feed into my printer. Does anybody have a solution for this? What do you use?

I hope you'll hop on over to the Tuesday Morning Sketch blog to see the DT's samples. Better yet, why don't you play along?!

I'm a wee bit late with my blog post today; I'm a bit tired. We went to the Mall of America yesterday, to celebrate DD's 12th birthday. We had a great time, but that place can really wear you out.... It is huge! We were on all 4 floors. The kids spent most of their time at the amuesement park with DH and I was able to spend a huge chunk of time at Archiver's. By myself.... Uninterrupted! I was able to find some goodies. I havn't even unpacked the sacks yet, but that will have to wait. I work the next four days.

Thanks for stopping by today; I hope you have a great day!

Such a fabulous card! I love the combo of the funky paper and the sweet Caity. Love the red!!

Happy birthday to Ivy. I hope you all had a great time at Mall of America. I've heard of that place, but I've never been there.

I use Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock. I can't feed SU! card stock thru my printer with any great results. You might try your settings and see if you can "tell" your printer that you are going to feed card stock and that might make an adjustment??

Wow, this is a fantastic color combo, so fresh and fun, love it. Sounds like a fun day at the Mall of America! I usually print my digis on gp110, too and don't love it, but lately I've been using PTI without a problem. I think I lucked out with a pack that may be a bit thinner, because I never could use it in the past, so I'm not sure why it is working now?!

This is a darling image. I agree with Jess, that color combo rocks. I would never have thought of it. Great card.
