The Midweek Throwdown Challenge at OWH is Mother's Day cards; I combined it with the Cards In Envy current challenge which is to use green. I added the flower to distract from a bit of wacky placement on my part; I actually like it, probably because I don't use flowers as much as I used to, but I can't help but wonder if there's too much going on in this card!
Hi! I had so much fun coloring one of Sandy Allnock's new stamps from her Ciara's Friends stamp line! I colored with Copic markers and added Glossy Accents to her eyeglass lenses and the toes of her sneakers. Thanks for this and all the adorable stamps, Sandy!
Welcome! Trying to get back into the swing of crafting after being away. I made two thank you cards for guys. The first is a monochromatic card using an Our Daily Bread Designs rubber stamp (Tool Box) so I will post it at the OWH challenge:
The newsprint DP is Bazzill Basics Paper Antique Papers.
The other card I made uses this week's OWH sketch, turned on its side. I panic when little strips are required and this was almost a train wreck, but here's how this one turned out. I will probably write an Any Hero note inside:
I had a little paper-piecing fun and the background DP strips are cut from Simple Stories' "Awesome" 6x6 pad. So glad you stopped by!
Welcome! The new two-week challenge starts today at Sugar Creek Hollow and the theme is a fun one: "Sew Fashionable". Vintage or shabby chic sewing, fashion, or both--have fun with it! I used a sketch from the OWH archive and had fun with digital ephemera from The Shoppe at Somerset at Stampington & Company:
Scissors charm: AC Moore

Can't wait to see what you create for the "Sew Fashionable" challenge at SCH! Thanks for visiting and I enjoy reading your comments!
Hi! Welcome to my blog for the start of a brand new two-week challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow: Dreaming of the Beach! I think by this point around much of the country we're ready for summer and the beach! We have a fantastic Guest Designer at SCH this time: Marie S. Check out her beautiful work at her blog, Primia!
I made the card below for the Design Team with a pretty vintage lady from "The Designer Magazine August 1901" (image provided by Digital Two for Tuesday). It's a black and white image, but I added a bit of color with Copics, enhanced the polka dots on her dress with white gel pen, and cut her out to place her on my background "scene".

I can't wait to see what you create and post at Sugar Creek Hollow!
Late for the Super Bowl at OWH (team colors) but I thought I'd post this to say "Well done and better luck next year, Broncos!" The Broncos were hit by a juggernaut yesterday, weren't they? I like both teams and I am a Washington fan, where we know what football disappointment feels like, lol! I think I will still post this at the ODBD challenge (brown), even though I'm late for that party, too!
This Cuttlebug embossing folder reminded me a bit of Sandy's football stamping! I stamped with "Night" color pigment ink. Once again, I was reminded that pigment ink takes forever to dry. Time to get some new stamp pads! I added the clouds with a Hero Arts stamp and touched them up with a white pencil. Thanks for stopping by! Great job, Seahawks!
