OWH reaches its 250th sketch!

Here is Operation Write Home's 250th card sketch!

 
I made two card based on the challenge. The birds on both cards are just parts of patterned paper in my stash:
 


The flower on the second card may be too thick for OWH but I like how this turned out:
 
I have been making cards for Operation Write Home since June 2010 and I learned early on to depend on their sketches! Thanks for stopping by; please come back soon!

The Animal World: CI challenge

The current challenge at Crafty Individuals is "The Animal World".  I need lots more practice with mixed media, but it was a lot of fun getting messy with my Ranger Distress Inks and paint!

Hambo Hoedown March challenge

The March challenge at the Hambo Hoedown is "Folds". I decided to try making a pinwheel and I hope it qualifies as folded! I like the summer fun feel of this card with Hambo's penguin and, yes, the pinwheel turns! I had to make a 5x7 card instead of A2 so the pinwheel would fit!

Anything Tim challenge at A Vintage Journey

I haven't been able to join in the crafty fun at A Vintage Journey in a long time, but when I saw they are celebrating their one-year anniversary I really wanted to join in. I'm going to give this to my little great-niece for her birthday; her name begins with a "C". She is very young but I hope her mother will save it for her. I like to make tags that inspire girls to believe in their potential and follow their dreams! Tim's products are perfect for this.

I hope you enjoy my tag!

Another comfy chair card

We've been having a chair card/tag challenge at the FB paper crafting group and after I posted one I remembered this favorite digi stamp from Hambo Stamps "Wee Henrietta Reading." The dp's (except for the background brown polka dot dp) are freebie papers in  the April 2015 issue of Stamper's Sampler "Take Ten" magazine.

 
Paper-pieced and colored with Copics
 
Thanks for stopping by. Say, have you read any good books lately? I need a book recommendation!

Yellow & gray coffee card!

I was looking around Etsy this morning for something and came across an awesome digi stamp set at Vera Lane Studioes! Talk about love at first sight, lol! I purchased it right away and decided to use it for Raeanna's yellow and gray challenge at our FB paper crafting group. The set comes with another sentiment "Coffee fixes everything", which I put on the inside of the card. I know I'll be going back to Vera Lane Studio!

 
Thanks for stopping by!

ODBD March Challenge at OWH: Sentiment

The new challenge at OWH sponsored by Our Daily Bread Designs is to make the sentiment the focal point. I really like this sentiment and the bright colors in this patterned paper. Martha Stewart butterfly.
