OWH - Sketch 118

I used a new stamp that I purchased last weekend at the Heirloom Rubber Stamp Show.  It's from Nellies-Choice.  I  don't usually go for cutsie stuff, but as soon as I saw this stamp, I knew I wasn't going to walk away without it.  Must be my love of frogs.....
The plan this week is to use this sketch for at least another 6 cards.  I know I have a lot of larger stamps, so it
should work out well...
Thanks for looking!

Operation Write Home - Stars & Stamps Blog - Sketch 115

Finally!  I can play along with the weekly sketches.  I made it my obsession at the start of 2012 to go through all the sketches and make one card, and to not stop until I was finished.  Let me tell you, by the time I had only a dozen or so sketches left to do, my work got sloppy and I was mostly just focused on being done.  So I'm not all that happy with the last few cards, but I'm overjoyed to be done and to be able to play along on a Sunday again.  Here's my first attempt at this week's sketch.  I had several Snoopy's already colored, so I consider this a slight cheat.  But I don't care!

My second attempt was because I'm short one Easter card to send out this week.  This was easy because I used more of the bunnies on steroids paper (per Dixie).

By this time, I had decided that I really like this sketch, since the size of the main image seems to fit so many of my favorite stamps.  I also had just listened to Sandy's Two Things and a Rant and so I grabbed some brown stuff.  Does this card seem brown enough?  What do they really want when they ask for brown cards?????

 My last card (so far!) is for my nephew, who is going to be having a birthday soon.  I doubt if he even knows this blog is in existence, so I'm not really worried.  But, just in case -


He's going to be a famous drummer one day.  Hopefully with Metallica or 30 Seconds to Mars or one of my other favs (so I can get into concerts for free, of course.........).   ~Nancy F.
