OWH Sketch #179 Challenge

Another Sunday, wow, where does the weekend go?  Operation Write Home's Sunday sketch challenge comes via kathrynscards.  Kathryn's card was inspired by a previous
Sunday sketch, tweaking it along the way.  Best wishes for a great week.

OWH Sketch #178

Good Morning everyone, wow, summer life sure does get in the way of card making.  I hope everyone is staying cool, today we are supposed to hit 104!  Best wishes for a great weekend.  This past Sunday's sketch at Operation Write Home was pretty easy, given that if you had a couple complimentary papers, the work went pretty quickly.  So quickly, I actually made two different cards, a first for me!  i turned the sketch sideways to use a long horizontal sentiment.  I think this could be a go to sketch.

OWH Sketch Challenge #176

Wow, is it ever hot!  It just seemed like the other day we were wishing the cold would go away.  Spring skipped us and we went straight to blazing!  The weatherman says it's going to be 104  tomorrow, yikes!

This week's sketch over at Operation Write Home was so fun, I think I set a new record for me, less than an hour!  Albeit, I did have a few interruptions.  I just love all the cool 6x6 pads everyone is using, the smaller scaled prints are just fabulous.  I did tweak the sentiment shape, hated to cover up the neat ruler print.  Well, keep cool and enjoy, it'll be freezing before we know it!

OWH Sunday Sketch Challenge #175

Good evening everyone.  The last several weeks have just flown by!  As of this writing, our son is on his way to his new home in San Antonio, TX, to begin his life as an Army anesthesia resident.  Medical school was gone in a heart beat.  I'm several weeks behind in the sketch challenge department, so it's time to catch up a bit.

This week, Operation Write Home honors the life of one of our fellow card makers, who gave so much to the organization, but passed away recently.  I invite you to read about Jean E. and  her wonderful contributions to our heroes.  I love the clean and crisp sketch, designed by Jean.  The photo brightened up the green solid cs, it does match closer to the hello dp than it looks in the picture.  Best wishes to all for a good week ahead.
