OWH Sketch Challenge #144

God's Blessings to those on the East coast.  My Denver son is visiting out in Maine, via D.C. after interviewing for a anesthesia residency program.  He was to come home Monday, now it looks like at least mid-week.  Just as I pray for his safe return, I think of our heroes and pray for their safe return as well.  This week's challenge is dedicated to all our military heroes.

OWH Midweek Throwdown: Celebrate Friendship

Hi everyone.  This week, Operation Write Home challenges us to make friendship themed cards.  I bought some wild, brightly colored card stock a few months back, and was stumped at how to use it.  The idea of solid colored strips in varying widths came to mind, thus, the thick and thin! I recently developed a embossing "fetish", so I just had to add depth to the strips as well.  Hope you enjoy!

Embossing-  Cuttlebug "With Love"

OWH Sketch #143

Good morning everyone!  I'm a new aunt (multiple times over) as my "baby sister" is a brand new momma!  In celebration, I incorporated this week's sketch into a birthday card.  Happy Birthday Ella.

OWH Sketch 142

Happy Sunday!  It's a beautiful day here in Western Colorado.  We are grateful for a fall rain storm that "buzzed" through our area this weekend.  The rain is gone, leaving everything watered, crisp and clean!  Today's sketch inspired me to create something just as crisp and clean as the rain.  Best wishes for the rest of the weekend.

OWH Midweek Throwdown - Love Cards

Operation Write Home's mid week challenge is to make anniversary or love cards.  Ironically, I did an anniversary for last Sunday's sketch challenge.... so... I tried my hand at love cards.  I have a huge growing collection of scraps and pieces, so I doubly challenged myself to use the scraps while making the love cards.  Hope you enjoy!

OWH Sketch 141

I've been saving a few tone on tone papers and ribbons, just waiting for the right sketch to make an anniversary card.  141 was perfect!  Here's to a great start of the new week.

OWH Midweek Throwdown Challenge

This weeks challenge is to create Thinking of You cards.  My own personal challenge is to make more masculine cards and stretch my color palate to colors other than brown!

OWH Sketch 140

Last weekend was Color Sunday here in Western Colorado.  The fall colors over Kebler Pass inspired me to use leaves with Sketch Challenge 140.  The warm days and very cool nights are just beautiful!
