OWH Sketch Challenge #162

I love Operation Write Home sketches.  The measurements are always provided for an A2 card size (this is the preferred card size to send cards to the troops).

Here is this week's sketch:


This week, I used 9to5 paper from October Afternoon.  The oval is from Jenni Bowlin Studio and the "thanks so much" stamp is from Fiskars.  The flowers and pearls are both Recollections.

OWH Sketch Challenge #153

It was so relaxing to finally have a chance to get creative in my office today.  I loved this sketch from Operation Write Home and it was a great excuse to put away the Christmas papers and pull out some Valentine's Day stacks.

Here is the sketch:



And here is my card.  As you can see, I turned the sketch.  I used paper and a sentiment from Making Memories J'te Adore collection, a heart embossing folder and some red/white polka dot washi tape.

Paper Players Challenge #123 - Jaydee's Sketch Challenge

This is the first time I have entered the Paper Players challenge.  The sketch is clean and simple.


Here is my card.  Since it was already out on my desk, I used paper from the "Peaceful" collection by Authentique.

Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #265

This was another round or square challenge.  Here is the sketch:



Since the square sketch is more in my comfort zone, I made this:


I used paper from DCWV's Mariposa stack.  The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp.

Have a great weekend!

Saturday Card Sketch Challenge with Kimber

The Saturday Card Sketch Challenge with Kimber at Two Peas in a Bucket:


Here is my submission.  I used paper scraps from the DCWV Autumn Medley Mat Stack and the sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp.  I heat-embossed the sentiment with bronze embossing powder from Inkadinkadoo.  The flowers and pearls are both from Recollections.

Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #262

Here's today's sketch for the challenge:


I flipped the sketch and made this card using paper from the DCWV Autumn Melody Matstack.


DCWV October Stack-a-holic Challenge

Here is the sketch for this month's DCWV Stack-a-holic Challenge:


Along with following the sketch, another requirement is to use DCWV paper.  The paper I used is from the Autumn Medley Matstack.  I totally copied the example on their blog and used paper from an old book to make the center flower (except I inked the edges with some Tim Holtz brown distress ink).  Initially, I added a couple leaves like they have on the sketch; however, they took too much away from the pretty paper so I removed them.  Happy fall!

My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club Challenge #91

Here's the sketch:


I've been so busy with work for the past month, I haven't been making many cards.  Needless to say, I'm pretty rusty and haven't been keeping up with learning different techniques and all the other cool stiff out there.

Here's what I came up with late Wednesday night:

You Make My Life Happy

For today's Saturday Card Sketch Challenge with Kimber, she gave us this sketch:


I turned the sketch on it's side (once I realized I cut my first sheet of paper incorrectly!) and came up with this:


I used Webster's Pages Petite Pages Sunday Picnic & Everyday Poetry combo pack for the paper.  I hope, whomever receives this card, smiles when they get it!

Operation Write Home Sketch Challenge #133

Here's the sketch for this challenge from Operation Write Home:


And here is my card:


I used Bo Bunny's Hello Sunshine paper that I won from Simon Says Stamp!  Looking at the card, I should have put the sentiment on cream card stock and attached it to the yellow paper; however, it is more prominent on the card than it shows in the picture.

Just Wanted to Say Hi...


I followed a sketch for this card and I think it was for a challenge; however, it was such a busy week at work, I put it aside and have no idea which blog had the sketch!  Anyhow, here it is!  Another card I made with that cute Edamame paper from K & Company.


Mojo Monday 253 Contest

Took me a few days past Monday to get this one done.  Here is the sketch:


Here is my card.  I needed a card for a baby shower gift so I hope she likes it!

Saturday Sketch Challenge with Kimber July 28

Here's the sketch for today:


Lots of different things going on there!  I have to be careful with the cards I make for OWH that I don't add too much "stuff", since the cards have to fit into an envelope for the service members to send home.  Here is my card:


The paper I used is from the K&Company Edamame Mat Pad.  I tried to make it colorful, but not overbearing (so even a guy might want to send this one out!).

Have a great weekend!

OWH Sketch Challenge #130

Here is this week's sketch challenge from Operation Write Home:


And here is my card (a very loose interpretation!).


I used some BoBunny paper and a Sizzix bumble bee die.

Saturday Sketch Challenge with Kimber 7/21/2012

Here is the sketch from Kimber at Two Peas in a Bucket:


And here is my card:


Yes, I used my Heidi Grace Designs, Tweet Dreams paper again.  I just can't get enough of those cute little birds.

Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge 251

Here was the sketch for Mojo Monday:


And, here is my card:


The papers are from the Heidi Grace Designs, Tweet Dreams and Tweet Memories collections.  Aren't they adorable?  I'm a sucker for those little birds!  I just learned that the same Tweet patterns are available in fabrics.  I really need to learn how to sew!

Operation Write Home is in need of general, all occasion cards.  This card is headed their way.  If you have a chance, please consider sending them some cards as their supplies are running low right now.

Saturday Card Sketch Challenge with Kimber 7.7.12

I saw the DCWV Timeless Type Stack yesterday and, well, I HAD to get it.  The vintage, lodge-looking papers are so awesome.

Kimber at Two Peas issued the following sketch challenge on Saturday:


Not exactly easy.  But, I pulled my new stack out of the bag and came up with this:


After looking at it, I think the brown would have also looked good with a turquoise paper, what do you think?

July DCWV Stack-a-holic Challenge

This is my first entry into a DCWV Challenge.  I had a tough time getting the sentiment thingy right; however, thanks to the step by step instructions, I was able to slant my stripes without much problem!

Here's the challenge picture:


And here is my card.  I used paper from DCWV Stack 7.
