OWH #205A

LOL!!  Well, I decided to start my resolution early and make a fall/Thanksgiving card with the sketch.   I need to check my cutter (or my eyesight), cause I swear I measured it correctly, but for some reason I ended up with a little white area between the pieces.

This is old Stampin Up designer paper, that I love.  I have one sheet of it and I treasure it.  Crazy how we feel that way about paper, isn't it?  Oh, and I used some  Core'dination paper with an embossing  folder and sanded paper for the first time!!  I think I like the look and need to play around a little more with this technique.

Here is the sketch (again)
and my card
Again, have a safe and happy evening.... and of course, here is hoping that 2014 is our best year ever!

OWH #205

Crazy how time flies!! I can't believe how long it has been that I have posted something for a sketch! Now that the holidays are winding down (including the pressure for cards), I hope I can play along with the sketches.

As I mentioned on one of my Facebook posts, I'm trying to figure out a way to "maximize" my creativity.  I came up with the idea of taking a sketch like this, and making one card for each category.  So I can check off the "Thinking of You" card for this sketch, but need to make one for Birthday, Love, Halloween, Thanksgiving etc.  I'm not good at math, so I have no idea how many cards that would make BUT I think it will be my challenge, knowing that it will be hard to do, but I have to start someplace. So I can have fun with the sketches and get my cards done!!

Here is the sketch
And my submission for the challenge!! 

Recognize the sentiment stamp!?? Yes it is one of the OWH (Hero Arts) sets I picked up at Michael's awhile ago.   The designer paper is all from a paper pack MME (My Mind's Eye) "Breeze".  Another find at "Mike's" awhile back and a 40% coupon made it "sweet"!!

Happy New Year to everyone!!
