Missing Mojo

I briefly lost my mojo, but I think I just found it.
Here's sketch 237 - I've been trying to use up this birdhouse paper for about a year.  Note to self, buy the really small paper tablets..........



And another old sketch from another week that I missed......  I hope this isn't getting to be a habit.
I also sent these off in my latest box to Operation Write Home:



And surprise!  Joanne made some cards too!  Here they are:
I'm going to try to hang on to the edge of my mojo so it doesn't get away again.....  Wish me luck.

Hello!

Sketch #233
Sketch #234 - I had trouble with this one.  Wish I had a tweety sentiment for it.....
I totally cased these from a magazine but it was a good excuse to use the new hexagon dies.....
And a moose you sentiment would have been better for these.  They started out as this week's sketch cards, but I noticed I forgot the banner....  It seemed like too many layers.

Super Virtual Card Making Party This Weekend!

Operation Write Home held a really super virtual card making party this weekend!  I'm still not done with all the challenges, but I like to think I'm over half way through.
MidWeek Throwdown was to use a flag on your card.
For the His & Hers challenge, I used Sketch #205.  I'm also including the truck card in the masculine with a vintage image card.  That helps me feel like I'm further along.......or is it farther?
Here's my thank you card, also covering Our Daily Bread challenge of "things with wings" and a thick
Any Hero card.  I guess it could also cover the travel challenge, although I had some other stamp in my mind for that one.  There's time....
Red, white & blue birthday -
Colorful background - I used up some scraps -
And paper piecing with a miss you for kids - looks like I forgot to put the "miss you" on these....
Winter image using red, white and blue -
This doubles as more flag cards and the thin any hero which can also be used to write home.
And finishing up with Sketch #232.  I think this will end up being one of my favorite cards for 2014.
My glossy accents isn't quite dry on the dots.....

End of June......already.........

Where did June go?  I'm still on a blog roll.  I managed to squeek out the MidWeek Throwdown for missing you cards for kids, the sketch card for today and I just got the Mama Elephant stamp set and dies that are benefiting Operation Write Home this month.  They're quite fun to play with, but I'm still trying to get a handle on using the dies.  Yes, I've tried templates with post its.  It's a work in progress.....

Groovy

I think I'm back in the groove..........
This is the mid week throwdown - watermelon and pistachio papers -

And a few attempts at the sketch of the week - I'll make more because I do like this sketch!


Thanks for peeking in!  ~Nancy F.

Can't believe I'm blogging again so soon......

Card production is still going strong, I'm just surprised that the blogging is still coming along too.....lol

Sketch #229 at OWH

And the sketch I skipped last week - #228

And the Midweek Throw Down - Kite Flying


That's all I got done this weekend.  We finally had a couple of nice days (no rain!!!!) and I had a lot of
weeding and other fun stuff like that to do instead.

It's About Time!

I know.  I'm a lazy blogger, but not a lazy stamper.  I never stop working on cards for Operation Write Home.  I make the cards, take the photos and that's as far as it goes......until today.  Here's my catching up.....  I've done Sketch 222, using browns, ODBD May embossing challenge, use flowers, Sketch 224 (or my take on it), Sketch 221 and using Disney characters.  Some of the others are from challenges, too, but
I've slacked for so long I don't remember the details.
