Hope all of you crafters had a good weekend. I was busy with many things including trying to catch up on the challenges. Seems since I've gotten back from vacation -- I can't get caught up. Maybe I am still on vacation mode. :-) I did make some Pindo Palm Jelly. Now how many of you knew that this variety of palm tree produces fruit? I sure didn't until we moved to the desert and our backyard had a couple of these palms. Anyway -- back to cards.
In crafting my cards this week, I decided to try and re-purpose an item for each of the cards. I did that for all of them but one. (My Halloween card) This weeks sketch I really like and plan on making some more cards this week using this sketch. I look forward to the sketch challenges -- I like how it does challenge my card making skills. Thanks to Julie and the OWH team for doing such a great job!
I made a card for the Santa Tutorial and one for the Midweek Throwdown: Kraft cardstock + color. I really enjoy making cards for OWH -- it is just a small way I can say "Thanks" to those serving our country. For those of you that may not know what OWH stands for it I "Operation Write Home" It is a non-profit organization that sends blank handmade greeting cards cards to our nation's armed forces to write home on. Please click on the OWH to learn more about OWH and good works that they do.
I am also stepping out of my comfort zone and going to use one of the OWH challenge cards for another challenge. That challenge is over at "Our Creative Corner Theme Challenge" - that challenge was to make a card using office supplies (yeah -- I get to repurpose something) and to make sure there was red on the card. Hopefully I met that criteria.
Thanks for stopping in and I hope you all have a wonderful week!
|This is the card for the Kraft +color challenge. I used a SU retired set. I found in|
some ribbon that looked like black web in my stash and I added a little feather. The
background I stamped with the owl and candelabra.
