OWH Sketch 66 Challenge -- Easter Sunday

Happy Easter -- and thanks for all who stop by this blessed day.

Although today isn't really a red, white and blue day -- I felt patriotic today after I finished making potatoe salad and baking an apple pie (two of my husband's favorite things) so to keep the patriotic mood going  I made a patriotic card using today's sketch.

I enjoyed this sketch -- it is a good one for using narrow scraps of paper.
The sentiment stamps are from Stampendous - Freedom Squares.  The Eagle stamp is from the Stampin' Place.   I colored the eagle with Crayola pencils.  The wavey flags on ivory paper is from Scrap Happy.

Hope you all have a wonderful week!

OWH Sketch 65 Challenge and MWT - Monochromatic Challenge

Thanks for stopping in this week --  I am behind schedule but still wanted to post some cards. We were out of town for five days and I didn't get any cards made while we were gone -- so doing my best to catch up I combined the Sketch 65 Challenge and the Monochromatic Challenge in a couple of my cards. 

Here is OWH Sketch 65

The saying is a stamp from Penny Black, Inc.  The paper is John Deere and generic green cardstock.  I know this is masculine and probably shouldn't have a bow -- but I did a bow anyway -- I tried to make the bow as manly as I could. :-)

 I combined the two challenges with this card as well.  Since taking this picture I added three little bling stickers to the lower left -- it seems to dress it up a bit more.  I think it still needs a little something -- still pondering what else it may need.  Not sure of where I bought the stamp or the paper.  

This card is just the monochromatic challenge.  The hound dog stamp is from Stampin' Place.  I just love the look of this dog.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts -- the "Woof" is from Cloud9 Designs.

Wishing you all a Happy Easter.

OWH Stars and Stamps Sketch #64

Hello -- it has been a couple of weeks since my last post.  Life happens and sometimes you have to adjust your time to go with the flow and that was the case with me --I was unable to share in the past sketch challenges.  Today -- has been busy but I was bound and determined to get a couple of cards made and posted -- sooo without anymore sniveling -- here are my cards.

I decided to make mine Father's Day cards (for the Wednesday Challenge) and use some doggie stamps (a bit late but for Ciara's request).  Thanks for stoppin' by -- Hope you all have a wonderful week.

The Scottish Terrier Card - The dog stamp is from Stampin' Place, the saying is from Stampers Best.  The plaid paper is Sugarplum Plaid from Karen Foster Designs.

The Basset Hound Card - The dog stamp is from Stampin' Place, the saying is from Cloud9 Designs,  The doggie bone paper is from Tuula. The checkered paper - not sure where that is from. For the big dog bone - I used a stamp from the Cloud 9 Designs and enlarged it with my copier
