OWH Sketch #192

It has been awhile since I have been able to create AND post a card but decided to do so this weekend.  I am going to take part in the World Card Making Day bloghop for Operation Write Home so I needed to work on getting that completed and scheduled for the weekend.  

It is also raining here in Central Indiana, a much needed rain, so what better thing to do then create a card or two! Here is the info regarding the bloghop, I'm sure it will be a busy day with lots of great ideas, cards and probably some prizes too!! 

But let's get to the Sunday Sketch Challenge! 

Here is sketch #192

and my submission for this sketch.  The stamp is from Hero Arts and the sentiment is from a Stampin Up set.

I used an embossing folder for the strip on the side and also used Glossy Accents on the colored portion of the image, although you can't really tell it.

I love the sketches from OWH because they give you the sizes, I don't have to try and guess or think about it.

Enjoy your week and I hope that you are able to check out the bloghop this coming weekend for World Card Making Day.

Labor Day Weekend Virtual Party Challenge #4

This long weekend is a Virtual Cardmaking party at OWH (Operation Write Home).  I'm so far behind on the challenges, but hope to get caught up at some point... I'm coming in on challenge # 5 using this sketch:

The challenge is to use this sketch for a love card

and here is my submission... I flipped the card

this is a Penny Black stamp (Brimming with Love).   I used designer pager from Cosmo Cricket "Tea for Two" and also Rose Red paper from Stampin Up!.  The sentiment is from My Favorite Things and I used one of the die-namics from MFT to cut the sentiment and then mat it.

I colored the image with my Copic markers... probably should have gotten a closer shot....

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!! 

Happy Stamping!!
