First, some housekeeping....... to head back to the Operation Write Home bloghop "starting point" if you click on the image below it "should" send you back. In theory of course it should work, it doesn't mean that it will! <wink>
or if the image doesn't work, here is the link for Operation Write Home bloghop
For this hop we were to create a card for winter using a sketch from the OWH site. They have LOTS of sketches and unlike other blogs, this one give you measurements!! I love it cause when I see other cards on blogs, I'm trying to "guess" what the size of all the pieces are. I usually never get it right, so this is an easy place to start. Check the sketches out here
I decided to use sketch #119
And using the Four Seasons hostess set (Stampin Up!) here is my card. The sentiment is from a retired set (Happy Winter). I apologize that I don't have any photo editing software (yet) to be able to do the colors justice. I will have to play around with my lightening too. But none-the-less, here is my card.
I had time to do another card so here is my 2nd sketch effort, this is based on sketch #2
And here is the card.... a little is changed...
Hey, do you notice the difference in the pictures.... same camera, I just used different lighting.. wow, less than 24 hours of working on this post and I had an improvement.....
This stamp set is from C.C. Designs Suglarplum Snowmen a very cute set than I rarely use. I have lots of stamps sets like that..... The paper is SU Olive Olive and Rose Red (two of my favorite colors) and the DP (designer paper) is My Mind's Eye Wonderful Winter glitter holiday pad.
Thanks for stopping by and please make some cards for OWH.... or donate to this fabulous organization. Don't forget to check out all the other people have decided to join the OWH bloghop for World Card Making Day 2012.
