OWH Sketch Challenge 161 and Midweek Recipe Mix

Good Saturday Afternoon,

Well I have been running behind all week.   Can't say why -- just been on the go and other things have been taking up my time, i.e. doctor appointments,  dentists, meetings, tax time, shopping, shopping and shopping LOL, other crafty endeavors, etc. etc.  I know no excuses -- there are so many that post every single day and I so admire them.  I will work at doing better with regular posts. 

I made a couple of cards and a St. Patrick's Day Wreath for the front door.  My first card is for both the OWH Sketch Challenge 161 and the Midweek Recipe Challenge to use 1 Embossing Folder, 1 Border Punch or Die, 2 Patterned Papers and 1 Ribbon or Twine.  The second card I made for a friend's son  who is celebrating the birth of his first son.

I enjoyed having a wreath on the front door through the Christmas Holiday so I decided that I would keep a wreath on the front door all year.  So I made one for Valentine's Day and now St. Patrick's Day.   I will be working on my Easter wreath next.  I'll show you that one when it is finished.

I also did the random draw for those of you that posted a card on my blog for the OWH - Virtual Card Making Party.  And that lucky winner is:

#10 - Linda L at Creepin Along Blog

Congratulations -- I'll leave a post on your blog.  A big "thank you" to all of you that took the  all white/cream challenge.  You all did a great job meeting the challenge.

Whew -- I think I am all caught up until tomorrow when the OWH Sketch Challenge #162 will be out - Oh -- there is also the Our Daily Bread Design March Challenge to use a scallop on your card.  Also a reminder -- Mother's Day cards are due to the OWH Shippers on March 31st.  Okay - I think I am finished now.

Thanks for stopping in and blessing to all!

You did a wonderful job on the Shamrock wreath. Very stunning!

I really like the presentation of the Water wheel. Different and unique from the others I have seen.

Always look forward to seeing your creations.

Love the water wheel (or ferris wheel) card! It has a very vintage look to it.
