OWH Red Friday Bloghop

Operation Write Home is hosting a Red Friday bloghop and since I had a bit of extra time, I joined in.  Laura Bassen's card over at Doublestick Heaven below inspired me to pull out my Distress Inks and play.  Here's her card and my four (!) cards that I made:
SSS-Mosaic Heart stencil
I didn't have the stencil she used, so I made my own.  I cut a heart with my Silhouette and then overlaid another stencil on top.  My first card used the Tim Holtz Doily stencil:
Card #2 used the Tim Holtz Dot Fade stencil:
Card #3 used the Tim Holtz Stripes stencil:
Card #4 used a stencil I made on my Silhouette:
Other details:
Sentiment is from the Silhouette store: #6818
Distress Inks: Seedless Preserves, Salty Ocean, Wild Honey, Mustard Seed, Worn Lipstick

I'm also adding one of these cards to this month's ODBD challenge at OWH, which is Hearts.  

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you can find some time to create today!

Sketch-n-Scrap for November

Hello! I've been working on a few scrapbook pages and used the November sketch from Sketch n Scrap for a layout on my visit to Singer Castle:
 I used the blue and white gable ceilings as my color inspiration for the page.  The page title was cut on my Silhouette and I used a cameo shape above the word "Servant's".  It always amazes me that my Silhouette can cut something so small!

I added a bit of lace to the right edge and matted it on a gray and white striped background.  The sketch is a great one for a layout using 3 pictures:
There's still time to enter a layout for their November challenge!  

Thanks for stopping by.
