OWH Sketch #205

Here is this week's sketch at OWH:

And the Any Hero card I made:

DP: "Captured Memories" 12x12 sheet (I wanted to try to use the different strips of pattern on the DP)
Border stamp: Stampers Best
"My Hero": clear stamp from my stash
Punches, enamel dots, SU Espresso ink
This is a bit of a different take on Any Hero colors, but I hope a hero will enjoy it! Thanks for stopping by.

Midweek Throwdown at OWH: Color challenge

The Midweek Throwdown Challenge at OWH this past Wednesday is to use green and white or red and white. I thought I'd try stamping this lighthouse in green pigment ink and pair it with last Sunday's sketch, #203. I embossed the green background paper with the cloud folder.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend! Thanks for stopping by.

Masculine Hello

Hi. At least I managed to finally get my card done for the December Our Daily Bread Designs challenge: masculine cards! The stamp I used, Fishing Basket, is one of the stamps I got for being a recent random winner in the monthly drawing! The DP is Echo Park's "This and That."

Thanks for stopping by! It's almost Christmas Eve; have a peaceful night!

Sparkly purple Raggedy Ann for Christmas

The theme at MelonHeadz Friends is Christmas. I chose to use one of Nikki's cute Raggedy Ann digis. I decided to go with purple and lots of sparkle, which looks very nice with her red hair! It's a bit different take on Christmas red and green!  Merry Christmas, Nikki, and thanks for all the art work you create throughout the year!

Hope your holiday preparations are going well! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment; I love company!

Last SCH challenge of '13: Recycle & Repurpose!

Welcome! Today (12/16/13) is the start of a new two-week challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow; the theme is "Recycle & Repurpose". It's the final challenge of 2013, so I hope you will all join in and we can have a big finish for the year!

We have a talented Guest Designer for this challenge, Laura Delaney, and hope you will visit her blog to see her beautiful work!

I was a little stumped about what to recycle/repurpose, until I saw the mini Whitman Sampler boxes.  I had to enjoy the 4 little pieces of candy first before repurposing it into a tiny shadow box ornament, making this one of the sweeter SCH challenges I've enjoyed!

Thanks for stopping by and have fun creating for the SCH challenge!
