Catching up On Sketches!

Here are a few of the latest sketches from Operation Write Home.

Sketch # 142


     This sketch is my favorite, since it allows you to pick random scraps and create on a blank canvas.  I used a Kraft base, a small shipping tag, and a Prima flower w/ pearl.  For my stamps, I used a Thank You from Impression Obsession.  There is a swirl from Scrappy Cat under the Prima.

Sketch # 141

     I am not sure why, but I always have lots of trouble with circles.  For this card, I used an oak tag base, scraps of teal and pink, and a designer paper from K&Co.  My sentiment is from IO's set called Cupcake MC181.  I used a Cuttlebug EF for some texture.  This sweet pre-colored image is from Beary Wishes.  There are a few teal pearls as embellishments.


     For this sketch, I wanted to do a masculine cards, so I gathered up my black and white scraps.  I found this fish paper I had printed off and just ran with it.  My sentiment is from Rubbernecker Stamps, and the dangling line stamp is from Mail Expressions.  I used a Scrappy Cat flourish to add a little movement to the sentiment.  My only embellishments are black mini brads.

     That's it for me!  Thanks for stopping by!

Mary Anne,
So glad to see you are up and moving :). The cards you made with the sketches are fabulous and as always you have just the right images.

Three winners! I love the green and kraft/tan colors on your first card, Very rich combo. You little flower with the pearl really added a nice feel to the whole card. What a cute little mouse in your second card. It it fun and cheerful. Your masculine card is terrific and that sentiment is perfect. Once again, you've made our heroes very happy.
