OWH Sketch Challenge #98

Good Sunday Evening --

Managed to get a couple of cards finished today.  I had something pictured in my mind when I started these but ended up with them looking differently from what I wanted.  My pictures didn't turn out as well this afternoon -- I tried taking them with my flash but it washed everything out -- then I took them without and they are a bit dark -- I'll have to take my pictures in good daylight.  It was just one of those days.  :-)

On the  "Wild About You" card I moved the circle -- I didn't want the zebra's rump facing the sentiment -- I don't usually change the sketches around -- but this time I thought it would be okay.

Thanks for stopping by -- I know this is a busy time of year for all of us.  I have to get busy this week -- I want to make a few cards and get my Christmas crafts going too.

Wishing you all a wonderful week!

 I used scraps for this card - not sure of where the DP is from nor the stamps expect the sentiment stamp and it is from "Hot off the Press".  The doily tag is from Martha Stewart.
The zebra stamp is from Stampers Best and the DP is from Bo Bunny - Zoology Collection.    The sentiment I did on my computer.

December Challenge: Get Sentimental

Good Saturday afternoon -- it is a cold windy day here in the desert -- nice to be indoors and home.  Although I have a stack of crafts to do for Christmas I decided to do a card today -- boy did it take me forever to get it done. I would try this color and that color (seems I didn't have the colors I wanted)-- finally just did basic beige and browns with just a bit of color  with the ribbon and couple of little hearts.   Thanks for stopping by -- it has been a while since I have made and posted cards for OWH -- we traveled to Northern California for the most of November to visit family and friends for Thanksgiving and oh there was my son's wedding the first part of November too -- so I've been a busy bee.

I used a Stamper's Best  stamp for the sentiment.  The music sheet stamp is from Recollections.  The hearts were punched with an ek punch and the pearls are from Martha Stewart.
