A Week's Worth

I'm falling behind in my resolution to do all the OWH challenges this year and it's only February.  I've managed to get caught up this weekend.  Tuesday's tutorial was using watercolor markers.  I don't have any, so I used watercolor papers.  They're like the old fashioned watercolors in the metal box, but the pigment is on a piece of paper instead.  I also used the same stamp as in a previous challenge  This time I took Paula's suggestion of putting a sentiment across the lower left.  Good suggestion, Paula!

The midweek throwdown called for a birthday card.  

I enjoyed looking through all the cards from the hop on Saturday.  Here's my critter cards -

And to finish up, or start the new week, depending on how you look at it, here's Sketch 158.  It's a midweek birthday critter!
I hope I don't get this far behind again!

...................I just realized I haven't done the ODBD fruit challenge yet!

  4. All of your cards are so cute and so much fun! I love the scene on the first card, and the colors look great! I'm behind on challenges too as I have other projects I'm working on, but I don't let it stress me anymore.
    The idea for my Simon Says card came to me as I slept - and I woke up with the idea in my head. Am I weird or what? LOL

  6. wonderful group of cards. I really like how you flipped today's sketch. Your little monkey is so adorable. Thanks for all of your inspiration. I know it can be challenging keeping up with all the challenges, tutorials, hops, etc. I do what I can -- my goal this year is to concentrate on filling up my box for OWH with more cards than I did in 2012. Enjoy the process of crafting. :-)

  10. Nancy, these are all so amazing. You have such a great assortment of stamps! I am trying to make more critters and cute cards, since I seem to always lack in that department. That is where it is good for me to break into my digi stash. I really draw inspiration from what you create.

  12. The 1st one is just beautiful and love the lavenders and image on the 2nd one. The critter cards are so cute and the color coordination is just perfect. I have seen this birthday embossing folder used many times but have yet to see it in the stores. Must be a best seller! lol You have been busy! TFS
