Sketch Fun!

Hey all!  To all my normal OWH followers I hope you are recovering well after the big bunny hop!  Lot's of great cards made just for our troops..it doesn't get any better than that!  Today I'm blogging 3 different Sketch Challenges..yes, I finally got a good dose of mojo back!  We are downsizing in prep for another PCS (military move) this summer so with a lack of clutter I am creative again!

OWH Sketch 59
This one was made for the OWH S&S Sketch Challenge 59.  I made it extra challenging by only allowing myself to use paper from my scraps.  Yes, the really pretty flower paper was scraps!  I am so terrible at just making one card and putting the rest in the scrap pile.  The image is from The Greeting Farm.  She was originally holding a pistol but I liked the letter and a '4 You' sentiment better.  I used Soft Suede ink for a little distressing...okay maybe a lot! {SU Supplies: Soft Suede Classic Ink 115657, Tiny Tags 118592,  Jewelry Tag 117190,  Cherry Cobbler Card stock 119685, Stampin' Dimensionals 104430}

Sweet Sunday Sketch 107
I love this weeks Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 107.  This was such a fun card to make and I will be using the sketch again for sure! {SU Supplies: Real Red Card stock 102482, Tempting Turquoise Card stock 102067, Word Play 120651, Neutrals Designer Buttons 119743, Stampin' Demensionals 104430}

FTL 130
Clean & Simple always has nice Sketch Challenges to play with.  This Fall to Layout 130 was created like my first card and made mostly from my scrap pile.  I used the black bow to try and distract from the crazy pattern paper and draw the viewers eye towards the sentiment...did it work? {SU Supplies: Cherry Cobbler Card stock 119685, Whisper White Card stock 100730, Whisper White Satin Ribbon 114616, Decorative Label Punch 120907}

Well I hope you've enjoyed all the cards and I hope you are inspired to play along with one or all of the challenges!  Have a great week! 


  1. WOW!!! These cards are GREAT!!! I LOVE the Greeting Farm image!!! The black ribbon on the last card definitely served it's purpose.. the dark color brings my eye right to the sentiment! And I like the layout on the middle card but I know if I tried it, the squares would be all off alignment... even with a ruler!!!


  2. Great cards! Your FTL card is stunning, the bold colors really POP! TFS :)

  3. Love these cards, Samantha! Love the cowgirl holding the letter, so clever of you! Thanks for joining us in this week's OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge!
