OWH Sketch #212

Another Sunday Sketch (#212) from OWH, and I can participate!   I'm watching Olympics and catching up on the shows I have on the DVR.  Amazing how quickly you can fall behind!

This the sketch details

and here is my card.

I dusted off some Nestabilities pennants, which worked out perfect for this sketch.  The paper is Stampin Up! crumb cake for the base, the patterned paper is a 6x6 pack from My Mind's Eye called "Love Me".   You can just barely see that the top (2" x 5-1/4") is a sheet that just has love, love, love written all over it.  It's perfect for a card that I wanted to be about love.  The sentiments are from an OWH set from Hero Arts "Year Round Sentiments"
I curled up the pennants just  a little to stand out....a very simple card but I'm pleased with how it came out.
Happy crafting!!

OWH Sketch #210 and Card Bowl 2014

Today is Sunday which means another Sketch from Operation Write Home.  I've missed a few sketches for many, many reasons too numerous to mention, but here are the details of the sketch

and here is my card

I have lots and lots of stamps...... and I just had a conversation with a very good friend that I need to probably take a step back from buying "new" stamps and try to concentrate on what I have.  I need to either decide that I love a set enough to keep it, or let it go because I haven't used it (at all) or rarely.  This is a Stampin Up! set (Lots of Thoughts) that I rarely used.  The stamp has the "note of love" that you see there, and under it "with all my heart, hugs and kisses, happily every after".  So I stamped it and cut out the "note of love" to affix on the front. Anyway, I think this goes in the "keep" pile.

The paper is a 6x6 My Mind's Eye paper pad "The Station", something I picked up a Michael's ages ago.

I'm going to continue to craft during the game....... and why?  Cause I wanna win more stuff!  Crazy isn't it?

Card Bowl 2014

Check this out card making fans!!  Operation Write Home is having a Card Bowl

So my card for this submission is usin the Seattle Seahawks colors, Bazill (Parakeet) and Co'ordination (Eggplant). The stamp in Stampin Up! (Sail Away) and I used an embossing folder from Cuttlebug (Anchors Aweigh). When I think of Seattle I think of water! Thus the nautical theme card, and decided to make it a "thinking of you card" (Stampin Up! Teeny Tiny Wishes).

This is actually a 3 part challenge for this weekend of fun and the chance to win more craft stuff!! 
Enjoy the weekend, here in Indiana it is raining, which is okay, it melting all the snow.....if you look behind the card you can see a little of our back yard. Snow is heading our away again, so hopefully we can get the old stuff gone to make way for new.
