OWH Sketch 150

Hi bloggers!  It's just a peachy day in sunny South Carolina - in the high 70's!  Wowwee.  I had a very productive weekend, getting a lot of chores done (even cleaned my washer!) and putting away a lot of my scrap stuff. 
I like to have blank cards ready to go and I took the time to cut & score cards. I discovered that I can score two cards at a time on my scoring board if I put them together.  May seem like a duh-moment, but I had never thought of this before:
Here's my basket of cards, ready to pull out and finish:
I cut plenty of white paper for the inside of my cards too, it's stacked in the back.
So now I was ready to take on today's OWH sketch:
I made three cards with this sketch - two feminine and one masculine.  The papers on my feminine cards are from the August Simon Says Stamp card kit.
On the card below, I embossed the flower and used Inktense coloring pencils & water to color in the flower.  Too easy!  Oh - and this card will be my submission for this month's ODBD challenge.
Finally, my cat has started supervising my crafting and now insists on sitting on my craft table.  I distracted her today by opening a window for her to sit at, but I'm going to have to find her another place to sleep...ha ha!
Excuse the messy desk!
Have a great day!


  1. Erick- great cards- all 3 of them! I really like the papers on the masculine card.
    The inktense looks so rich and vibrant on the flower! I have not taken the plunge yet- but maybe after Christmas I will get some of these interesting pencils. I also make my bases in advance- but your basket looks so organized and pretty! I wonder if we scored the whole paper before we cut it into 2 bases?? Your cat is a great supervisor! lol

  2. Three very nice cards for our heroes. I love the plaid for the masculine card. It's always nice when you can get two challenges out of one card. YAY for you!

  3. Wonderful cards! I really love the different patterned paper stripes used in the cross piece of the sketch. And that flower is gorgeous, it really pops with vibrant color!

  4. Wow Erika, your cards are so lovely. The plaid and stripes in the last card make a great masculine card. Love that paper!
