Before noon, and I've got the sketch done!  Woo hoo!
I couldn't figure out what to do with this one, all I kept seeing was "pocket".  So I found some old jeans patterned paper from the dollar store, flipped the sketch a little, and here we have it.

Sketch 219 and getting really far behind

I've been really, really lax in posting!
Sketch 219 -
I combined that sketch with the Mid Week Throwdown from April 2nd because I'm lazy.  And I thought it would help me catch up faster.
The monthly challenge from Our Daily Bread Designs is for bugs.  I love this stamp.  It's huge but it stamps up really  nice.
The next card is in memory of Suzanne, one of the card makers for Operation Write Home.  She recently passed away.
On March 26 they asked for cards using purple and  yellow.  These aren't some of my best work.  
That brings us to Sketch 217 -
And one more Mid Week Throw Down -called  circles galore.
And I almost missed sketch 218
These are going with Joanne to Kohl's.  She works there and they have very kindly given her permission to put out a box of hero cards in their breakroom during May, which is Military Appreciation Month.
Also, if you have a few moments, please watch this short video.  I was extremely honored to have my box of cards chosen to be viewed on the air at OWH TV.
Thanks for stopping in!

Sketch 216

I combined the sketch again.  The Midweek throw down was for using a scrappy background.  I actually found some scraps that matched!

I'm on a roll - more sketch cards -

I combined this one with the Midweek Throwdown for Mother's Day cards.

And last Sunday's sketch - 214 -

Super lazy

I've been a super lazy blogger.....
Sketch #213 -  Good sketch, I kind of changed it a bit so I could use clock hands.

Mid Week Throwdown for Let Your Light Shine -

Sketch #212 - I wasn't a fan of this sketch - it gave me trouble.  I don't know why, it's such a nice sketch.
I guess it's those little banners that threw me.  I tried several times, but was never really happy with any of them.

Mid Week Throwdown from 2 weeks late....ugh... Punny cards.  This wasn't the one I made for the week, but I managed to mail that one last week and never took a picture.  I had this image already stamped and it didn't take much time to color and put another one together.  I'll save this one for closer to winter.

My weekly update

Sketch 211 - love this sketch coz I get to use some bigger stamps!

So apparently, I forgot to post my card for sketch 210 last week.

And I went to another card making meeting and I remembered my tape gun!

Looks like it's snowing again......sigh.......I've really had enough already!
