Midweek Throwdown!!

This weeks OWH Midweek Throwdown is a totally easy one for me..ANY HERO!  I love to make patriotic cards and I love anyway possible to thank our Heroes for all they sacrifice.  
America Proud
Such an easy card.  A little hemp twine, a few brads and some CuttleBug action.  If you like the sentiment it's a freebie by OWH that can be found here.  Thanks for stopping by!!

OWH Sketch Challenge #66

Hey all! What a challenge this sketch was for me and I really don't even know why!  I stamped so many images and cut up a lot of paper and just couldn't make it work.  I took a 'night' off and came back to it and everything finally fell together so smoothly.  Crazy how things work out like that.   My mojo was just out of whack.  But here it card for the OWH Sketch Challenge #66.
Thank You

OWH Sticker Skip

Hey fellow crafters!  Welcome to your final stop on the Operation Write Home Sticker Skip!  I hope you've enjoyed all of the wonderful inspiration along the way.  If you just happened to stumble upon my blog and would like to start the skip from the beginning you should head on over to Stars and Stamps.  Also, make sure to comment on all of the blogs involved in the skip for your chance to win a special prize!

Alright, on with the cards!  I have 3 to share with you! 
Sticker Skip 1
I love these butterfly stickers!  They have dimensional tape under their body and have a clear wing layer that I just love.  The sentiment is also a sticker.  My camera made it look really vanilla but it's clear.
Sticker Skip 2
The robots used here were a pack of 4 that I bought at the local craft store.  They also are dimensional.  I attempted to stamp on vellum but smeared it so I dug out some shiny silver letter stickers and fell in love!  The best part about letter stickers is the ability to write exactly what you need. 'Bot' Day looks so much better than Birthday!
Sticker Skip 3

Here is my totally fun girly sticker card!  My daughter is turning 4 next week and I let her buy a bunch of stickers.  She picked these ones for me to make a card with..eek!  She loved the finished card and I'm pretty happy with it too!

Well I hope you had fun skipping along!  Enjoy your weekend!  I'm out for a fun filled girls shopping day!

OWH S&S Sketch Challenge #64

Hey all!  I really liked the S&S Sketch Challenge #64 this week.  I just thought up so many possibilities and was glad to see myself get one finished and on to a card base.  My husband is leaving this week to start training to be a drill sergeant so when he's packing I'm crafting!  It's going to be a lot harder with him gone since I love all the free babysitting (is it babysitting though when it's your own children?) but my kiddos are pretty crafty so we will still be making cards!
Rainy Day Ruby
I just love this image!  From the moment I first got to take a sneak peak at it, I knew I had to have her!  She looks like my daughter so I colored her like so.  I hope you've enjoyed!

OWH and Random Cards

Hey there!  So tonight I got really crafty and worked on two cards to share with you!  We've had a friend of ours staying with us the past two weeks so I was itching to make something!  Our guest room is also my crafting space so I tend to get kicked out from time to time.  Enough chit chat, here's the cards!
Cupid Emily
Another one of Sparkle's adorable stamps!  I had actually made this one with thoughts of participating in a challenge that was being sponsored by Sparkle but didn't pay much attention to the deadline..oops!  But it's still here to share with you!  DSP, Card Stock, and Sentiment are SU.  The Dew Drops were clear but I guess I finally found use for my Copic 100 marker =)

HB2U Frantoonie
The Digi on this card is a Frantoonie made for use ONLY on OWH cards!  I made this one for the OWH Sketch Challenge #62 and the Midweek Throwdown K-9 Challenge.  I'm really happy with this card.  I challenged myself to use up scraps and broke out some stickers!  The paw prints and the sentiment (Happy Birthday To You) are from the crazy drawer of stickers that only seems to keep growing.  I was so amazed when digging through it that I found stickers that had actually gone bad!

Thanks So Much
I really wanted to add this card since I made it for a previous Sketch Challenge and never posted it.

Well I hope that you enjoyed looking at my cards and I wish you all a fabulous weekend!
