Operation Write Home – Sketch Challenge #235


Time once again for a wonderful Operation Write Home weekly Sketch Challenge – #235!!!!

Here is a little card I made for this challenge.  I figure it can be good for a birthday or really any celebration that someone is having!


owh235 I was eager to try out one of my new embossing folders that I recently bought from Consumer Crafts.  Ok, they were having a buy one get one free sale, so I actually bought 20 of them (oops, did I say that out loud! 🙂   The one I used for this card is the Crackle embossing folder . . . I like it, it is an interesting look.

Some patterned paper from Michael’s, copic markers, ribbon . . . and alas, my card for this week’s challenge.





Operation Write Home – Sketch Challenge #233


I haven’t been on this blog or making cards for a little while now and it is time to get back in the game.  It has been a mix of being busy (although I absolutely hate that excuse as everyone is busy) and just not feeling creative lately!

Well there is no better way to get back in the game than an Operation Write Home Sketch Challenge!!!  Here we go!

Here is the Sketch #233 that we are following this week.


And here is my Challenge card.


I thought that since it is summer . . . I was feeling something very bright, colorful, and cheery!  I made my own patterned paper for the focal image with stamps from Gina K’s Aloha stamp collection!  Love Gina K. – check her out if you haven’t already . .  www.ginakdesigns.com.

And the “With Love” on the side is from some new die cuts from Inspire by Spellbinders.  This was my first time trying them out and I love them.  They add a bit of dimension to the cards and are definitely something different!

I am putting this card in my next shipment to Operation Write Home!  Can’t wait.

Here is to more inspiration and creativity!
