OWH Sketch #245

Greetings!  Hope you're enjoying this time of year - it's been quite rainy here in South Carolina and that makes the days dreary, so I'm trying to liven things up with craft time.  I used the latest sketch from OWH -  - #245 - for a quick card using scraps:
The stamps is from Cardz TV - Going in Circles.  I jazzed up the tag with gold embossing.  Hmmm--it looks plain here in the picture but I promise in real life it's got more interest!  Ha!
I'm looking forward to the Jan 1 OWH bloghop - best of 2014.  I'm going to start picking out some of my favorites tonight.  I love the inspiration from everyone that hops along and I'll bookmark the ones I want to CASE in the future.
See ya'll soon!

ODBD Dec 2014 challenge

Hello friends!  I wanted to add my card to the monthly Our Daily Bread Designs challenge for OWH  .  I love using primary colors on cards, so it was easy for me to create a card that met the criteria and what better way than using crayons?  The sentiment is a digital one from Birdie Brown with Doodlebug papers:
I was delighted to see that I won a Doodle Pantry coupon from our last sketch challenge!  Yippee!  I do love their designs and will have no problem using that coupon up.  Thanks Doodle Pantry!
Santa gifted me a new laptop and I've been busy getting it set up and it's now ready to go, so I'll be able to get back into more crafty fun!  I've had a great holiday and am reluctant to go back to work tomorrow, so I'm going to get some cards done tonight.  I wish I could stay home next week too!
Thanks for stopping by!

OWH Sketch #244

Happy Christmas Eve!  I'm fortunate to have this day off from work and I finished up some wrapping, chores and fit in time to make some cards.  The latest sketch from OWH is #244 which I changed a bit to fit my Doodlepantry image from the Spring Critters collection.  It's been a while since I made a card, so using a digital image is an easy way to get back into that crafty mode.  And who can resist their cute images?

I was so motivated that I made three cards using Doodlepantry images.  Here's the first, following sketch #244:

The paper is BoBunny Double Dots, along with a scrap behind that cute little chick.
My next two cards use images from the Silly Critters collection:

I traced and cut the images using my Silhouette and it's so fast to get a card done that way.  I hope I can make more cards during the holidays - I miss it so much!

I hope you have a lovely holiday and thanks for stopping by.
