Memorial Day, 2013

I'm late again, as usual, with my posting.  I spent most of the weekend making cards for Operation Write Home.
Sketch 174

The midweek throwdown:

And the cards I was inspired to make from the blog hop:

There are more hop cards to come.  I barely got started, there were so many good ideas that I kept getting

Sketch 173 - Operation Write Home

Sketch 173 - I'm back to doing multiples.  It was taking way to long to get the carton filled for Kris......
While I was trolling around blog land, I saw this sketch by Seongsook, who showed a bunch of ways to cut up one sheet of 12 x 12 two-sided paper to make a nice variety of cards.  So I thought I'd try it with some of the paper from Kim.   

Our upcoming weather for the week is what they are calling "unsettled", which means I should be able to get in some good card making time!
Thanks for looking in on me!  ~Nancy F.

Sketch 172

Happy Mothers' Day!
Here's my take on Sketch 172.  I used Stampin' Up's Sock Monkey set.
Short and sweet today.  Not a lot of blah, blah, blah.......

Cards for Jane

Friday's featured cardmaker for OWH this week is Jane E, who passed away last October.  In her honor, we are asked to CASE some of her work.  I am so happy to do so!

OWH MidWeek Throwdown

His and hers.
Dixie - you inspired me to do these!  I've learned a lot from cruising around your blog!
I was so out of my comfort zone with CAS, but I'm really happy with how these turned out.  I might even make more......

OWH and a VCMP and a beautiful weekend!

(This post is still in progress.  I didn't get all the challenges finished because a load of mulch arrived unexpectedly.  The rest of the challenges shall be forthcoming!  Promise!)

Finally!  Nice weather in Pa.!  Woo hoo!
So, let's get busy...............  We've got Our Daily Bread's monthly challenge - Miss You cards -

And Sketch 171 -

And a kid's card using a sketch - I just went with the same one Paula used - #28.

Sandy wanted romance cards.  My stamp selection in that department is slim.  This is the best I could do and it may be a little too cutesy.

Use a photo on a card.  Well, I don' t have any way of doing a nice print out of a photo, so I had to go with this awesome stamped image that Mary Anne sent me.  She used a plethora of stamps to make this image.  It's as close to an actual photo as I could get.  And I don't think I really did it justice on my coloring.  Hers was spectacular.

Looks like I missed the midweek throw down too.  Here's my thank you card for that.

Still working on the VCMP's my take off on a scrapbook page that I had  made a few years earlier.
And of course, booglie eyes.  Things are getting kind of rushed now, it's a work week and I'm not as happy with how things are turning out.
A little late on adding Joann's summertime request, but better late than never!
