OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge No. 115; the ODBD and Wednesday's Challenge "Thinking of You"

Good Morning - wishing everyone a blessed day.

Finally getting Sunday's Challenge posted and managed to make one more card for OBDB's Challenge and Wednesday got here and that challenge was to make a card with 'Thinking of you" so I decided to add that sentiment to the OBDB's challenge -- now I am all caught up on the challenges for this week.

I also wanted to say Sandy got me with her April Fool's pranks.  I was already working on Masculine cards for the OWH Muscle Challenge but when she said that a request had come in for brown cards -- I thought I can do that so I switched from making cards with cars using blues, blacks and reds and wasn't going to do the outdoorsie ones just yet  -- so I switched gears and made a couple of brown cards to follow or fearless leaders request. - Then today I am reading on the Homefront Blog and see that the brown card request was a joke along with the glitter story and Ellen --  Boy did I get fooled -- Hmmm next year I won't be so gullible (LOL)

Wishing everyone a Happy Easter.

I used this week's sketch - water colored the fish (my first attempt at water coloring)
DP is American Traditional Designs - the sentiment is from Hero Arts and the card
stock is from SU.  Brown button from my thrift shop finds.  I don't have the info on the
maker of the fish stamp.  The corrugated strip is from a repurposed coffee cuff.

I used this week's sketch for this card too.  The DP is from American Traditional Designs,
the Topo paper is from scraps I had.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts and the Jeep stamp is from
Sweet Home.  The corrugated strip is from a repurposed coffee cuff.

Hi Sharon, your cards are terrific. (I know what you mean about the brown theme. My dog card got made right after the vlog and I thought, Yay, I'm making a brown card! Ha, that Sandy!) I like the papers and the corrugated cross piece, plus the images. Excellent guy cards. Thanks for playing in our Midweek Throwdown Challenge at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps and I hope you have a great Easter!
