OWH Stars & Stamps MidWeek Throwdown Challenge

Hello -- well it has been some time since my last post.  I have been working on cards but just can't seem to get them on my blog.  I admire those that blog everyday and get their work posted.  One of my New Year Resolutions is to do better with my blog.  So we shall see how this goes.

I am going to post a few cards that I've made for some of the challenges -- starting with this Wednesday's challenge.  This particular challenge asks for cards to be "Sentiment Free" for our Heroes to write home on.  This card also would qualify for the ODBD January Challenge -- to include dry embossing on our cards.

This next card is for Sketch Challenge 154
This card is for the the Midweek Throwdown Spring Flowers Challenge  (January 2, 2013)

And my last two for this post -- are going to two special people (I can't mention who they are going to as they may be looking on my blog)  One was made following Sketch Challenge 150 and the other I made from a sketch I saw in "Take Five" magazine.

This card I enjoyed making using some sea glass that my husband and I collected
while visiting Fort Bragg, CA.  I saw this technique in "Take Five" magazine and thought I
would like to give it a try.

Thanks for stopping in  -- hope you all have a great rest of the week.

Sharon Glad you found a minute to get us caught up on your cards. They are each beautiful. Great vintage feel to your first card and for your second card you picked some fabulous papers. Your third card is fun and cheery which is what we need this time of year and your last two cards are lovely.
