Labor Day - Virtual Card Making Party for Operation Write Home

If you are a card maker and you need something to do this weekend, Operation Write Home is hosting a Virtual Card Making Party.  Hop on over to Nancy's blog, where we start the challenges!  Nancy called for inchies!  Here are mine!  I think they'd pop more if I had layered them.

Diane's challenge was to use items starting with the letters OWH.  I used an ornament, winter papers and a happy holidays sentiment.

Seongsook's Creations are always very pretty.  This time it was a call for triple time, and instead of using stamps, you only use one piece of paper.  Great idea!

We're all celebrating Annette's 29th wedding anniversary with love cards.  I've used this stamp before.  It's one of my favorites.

Donna's challenge was to use masking tape.  This was so much fun and I love how my card turned out.

An overdue post

I haven't fallen off the face of the earth - yet!
I've been working on manly cards.  No sentiments.  Hopefully guys will actually want to use these.

And I made some girly ones too.  Some of these are from past sketches where I made the cards, but never got around to posting.  Better late than never.
The flower cards were fun.  I stamped the flowers with versamark on white paper, then embosssed with white powder.  After the heat cooled down, I rubbed over the flowers with pigment stamp pads.  Then I stamped with coordinating colors on white and cut into three strips and mounted them on foam tape with an added ribbon.
And today's sketch:
