Hero: Operation Write Home Sketch #231

Another Sunday, another great sketch! The original inspiration can be seen here, a fabulous card by Angie! It's been really hot here in Western Colorado, but even hotter where our deployed heroes are.  The 4th of July is coming on us quickly, I want to send out a big thank you to our heroes and all they do for us!

Country Boy: OWH Sketch #230

Happy Sunday everyone.  Just a quick post, as I spent the morning tending to the chickens and veggie garden, I still have laundry to do! Truth be told, I totally goofed off Saturday at Country Jam, an all day country music festival here in Western Colorado!  Today's sketch over at Operation Write Home's Stars and Stamps features a great card from Diane.  Since I'm a country girl at heart, I decided to make a card in honor of all of our country heroes!  Well … back to the laundry!

I've been needing to make some love cards to balance out my next box to OWH, I seem to always not have enough love cards.  So, I decided to make a second card.  (Avoiding the laundry!)  I love MME Love themed pads, they all go so well together.

OWH Midweek Throwdown Color Challenge

Happy hump day everyone!  It's been a while since I've had time to even think at lending my hand to a midweek challenge, but here I am!  This week's challenge over at Operation Write Home is a color challenge, asking us to think summer and use teal and cantaloupe.  Well, I only have one piece of paper that even fit the challenge.  It's one of those multi-stack card stocks that have a pre-punch border at the bottom, one with a different bottom color than the top.  Well, I've had this pack for while, having trouble deciding what to do with it.  Since I'm limited, here goes!

The teal solid seemed to match the print much better in my craft room, oh well…. :-)  I'm wondering if I should take a snap shot of all the papers before I start, just to see if the camera says I match!  LOL!

Noel: OWH Sketch #229

Happy Father's Day everyone!  Our daughter took us out for breakfast, then we're having dinner with parents, but a little card making in between!  I'm a huge fan of circles, and this week's sketch over at Operation Write Home is just right up my alley.   I'm getting a jump on Christmas, as it seems I never start early enough.  Well,  here's to a great week, keep scrappin' everyone!

Love You Mom: OWH Sketch #228

Happy Sunday everyone!  This weekend is flying, a little chicken work, a little gardening and a whole lot of housecleaning!  We've been gone so much that I needed to catch up, but first this week's sketch at Operation Write Home.  I needed to make some general Mom cards, so go with my general Dad cards, and I was inspired by some flowers in my backyard.  Hope you enjoy both!

The actual card isn't quite this bright, my hubby's 5S iPhone sure brightened things up!

A little day lilies, roses and clematis.  My favorite spot in the yard!

Miss You: OWH Sketch #227

Happy Sunday everyone, hope it's the start of a great week.  We took a little vacation to attend another fabulous wedding, and to help our newly wedded kids unpacked into their new home.  We traveled by car, all the way to San Antonio.  Lots of American history along the way.  Well, it time to get back in the swing with the latest sketch from Operation Write Home.  This week, the sketch designer came up with two versions of the sketch, I'm partial to circles, so I chose version B.  Hope you have a great week.
