Great Catch

Hey All!  I'm back with 2 cards to share with you.

You're a Great Catch!
I love this image.  It's from My Favorite Things.  They generously donated stamps to OWH and I have really enjoyed inking them up!  This card was made for the OWH Sketch Challenge #160.  One of my previous cards was chosen as the sketch inspiration and it totally made my day to see it! I hope you'll play along!

I Miss You
This was the inspiration card I previously made.  You can check out that post by clicking here.

 I made this card also using a donated stamp set from My Favorite Things.  The current MWT challenge was fun folds so I took a shot at a gate fold card.  Is there some magic secret to getting them to lay flat?  I paper pieced the dress and heart of the image since I really wasn't in the mood to color.  GASP! Please don't tell my daughter that!

A Happy Hello

Hey All!

I've got two cards to share with you this time around.  I know it's been ages (okay months) since my last blogging but the card mojo was seriously AWOL!  I just sat at my desk starring at stamps and paper just hoping a card would make itself.  That sadly did not happen.  I tore my craft space completely apart and reorganized hoping to find a little mojo hidden with the dust bunnies.  I found a bunch of stamps that were donated to my kiddos two years ago and watched my son go into stamping heaven.  That was my inspiration.  If this little booger could make a card, well so could I.

A Happy Hello
 I made this card for the OWH S&S current sketch challenge #159.  I wasn't feeling the circle so I went square instead.  Love those trusty pinwheels.  The paper is by BasicGrey and the sentiment is from Verve.

Hello Sunshine
Super clean and simple right here!  This card was made for the OWH S&S midweek throwdown challenge, using your state flag colors.   Being stationed in Arizona meant using red, blue and yellow.  I tried really hard to do something creative with the twine but nothing seemed to work and I ended up ripping a lot of paper.  The sentiment on this card is from My Favorite Things.  They generously donated stamps to OWH.

SO if you made it this far, you are in for a treat.  I'd like to take my absence and make it your gain by offering a prize to one lucky commenter!  A great bunch of stamps, twine and embellishments will be squeezed into a small flat rate box.  All  you have to do is leave a comment telling me what gets your mojo flowing.  You have until February 28, 2013 to enter.  Best of luck!
