Lots to share with you!

Happy December!!
Hello friends and thank you for coming by on this crisp Tuesday morning. I suppose I should change my blog header. Hmmm...adding that on my to-do list.

A few things to sum up before I show you today's Tuesday Morning Sketch and introduce this week's sponsor:

♥Inktegrity's new release called Sundae Best is in the Shop now. YAY! You can see all the images HERE on my Inktegrity blog, thank you for all of your sweet comments. I had fun designing this line.
♥Congratulations, Random.org picked #2 - Alicia of callmecraftyal as the winner of the underwear images from Whimsie Doodles which is on sale now at the Store. You can see all of the awesome new images in their entirety HERE on the Whimsie Doodle blog. My card will be up tomorrow for my weekly Whimsie posting. :D
♥This month I am challenging myself to use different techniques and try new tutorials. Bear with me, some of these will be experimental but I will try to do my best.
Here is one of the techniques using Tuesday Morning Sketches' latest layout:

This week, Janice of Sunshine & Giggles is sponsoring our challenge. Thank you Janice! I chose this sweet Angel because our 11 year old family dog in Hawaii passed away on Sunday. :( My sister called to tell me the sad news. Brandy really belongs to my big brother, this golden retriever was probably his favorite pet ever. And wouldn't you know that today Marley & Me came in the mail from NetFlix. Wahh!

Okay, here is the wonderful sketch for you to follow:

And here is the little technique that I made with it:

I discovered this fun idea over 10 years ago from a Stampin' Up friend. After you decorate the front of an A2 envelope, seal the back like you normally would, trim the top with a deco scissors (optional), and then punch an area for the note card to peek through. Of course this wouldn't be okay to mail, but it's a cute little invitation layout. You can also choose to do it on the side instead, which makes for really cute vertical cards.
Now come on over and join us! See what other wonderful designs the DT came up with and link your card up HERE on the TMS blog. Happy Tuesday to you all, let's enjoy this week one day at a time!
*Love and Aloha*

I'm sorry to hear about the loss of the beloved dog.

Your card is very adorable! What a great way to use up envelopes. The angel is adorable sitting on her fluffy cloud.

Stay away from useless scripts. Scripts like counter tops and date/time scripts don't truly serve any objective, and as they are all JavaScript, could add a number of kilobytes on the page's file size. Ridding yourself of these components also liberates up place in the main page. Change these useless scripts with helpful content that will keep customers returning.
