OWH Sketch and Back to School

I used the new OWH Sketch and a Hambo Stamps digi for this card, which I hope will make a nice general "hello" card for a hero to send to a child. I need help learning to re-size digis; the image was a bit big so I had to cut it out and let it overlap the circle a bit, but I kind of like that look. I colored it with Copics and shaded in the background with a colored pencil because I only have a few Copics so far!
Digi: Hambo Stamps
DP: We R Memory Keepers "Grandma's Kitchen"
Imaginisce "Bedrock"
Copics and Prismacolor pencils

Here's a second card for the Sketch; I thought the image was cute for the OWH Midweek Challenge (I'm a little slow) to make Back to School cards. All of Slieke's cute digis at www.sliekje.blogspot.com are free if you haven't checked them out!
Digi: Sliekje
Copics and Prismacolor pencils

One more for the Back to School theme! I didn't know that Nikki had a teacher digi among her collection at MelonheadzIllustrating. I hope there are heroes who have a spouse or daughter who is a teacher, perhaps even a first-year teacher, who might like to receive this card:

Thanks so much for stopping by! I love company!
