Thank You: Sketch 205 & MWTD

Whew!  The holidays came and went in a flash.  I'm deep in the middle of making wedding invitations for my son and future daughter-in-law, so I have a quick moment to put together this week's sketch over at OWH.  Since I'm doing double time with the card and invitation making, I decided to do double time with the Midweek Throwdown.  The MWTD challenges us to make a color card in either red/white or green/white.  I chose green, think spring!  Well, back to the invitations, I'll post one when completed.

Tuesday Tutorial: Paper Punch Penguins

Merry Christmas Eve everyone!  Praise the Lord for he is King!  Today's Tuesday Tutorial over at Operation Write Home is to make a penguin card using punches (that is if you don't have a penguin stamp).  There is a special Brigadier General who is fond of penguins and requested a whole box of penguin cards.  Sandy challenged us each to make ONE special penguin card and she shared her talents by demonstrating several ways to make penguins with our everyday punches.  Thanks Sandy!  Here's my take on making a paper punched penguin:  Kid Style!  Best wishes to all!

Happy Birthday "Kid Style" OWH #203

Happy Sunday everyone!  Great sketch today over at Operation Write Home's Stars and Stamps.  I love the simplicity, which is what I need right now!  We're a little behind the Christmas decorating curve, just getting the tree up today.   I usually like to mat everything, but thought to KISS as Marlene said, and create a quick, cute kid card.   Now onto decorating the tree, have a great week everyone.

Miss You: OWH Sketch #202

Another Sunday crafting cards, it's just can't get any better, unless the Denver Broncos win, that is!!  This week's sketch over at Operation Write Home is a fun "easy" one, love the circle sentiment.  Time to go craft some more cards and root for the Broncos.  We've had any where from 9 inches in our town to 3 feet of snow across Colorado, it's going to be a very cold ballgame!  Best wishes for a great week.

Hero Mail: Sketch 201

Happy Sunday everyone, hope your Thanksgiving was everything you wanted it to be.  The weekend ends with another great sketch from Operation Write Home's Stars and Stamps.  I purposely waited until the Bronco game to create, my superstition is proving me right.  The Broncos win when I make cards!  Another winning combo, this week's sketch and Hero mail.  I hope some tired soldier will get a much need spirit lift.  Best wishes for a great week.
