OWH Sketch #144 and Mid Week Throwdown.

     Hi folks!  We were very fortunate to escape Sandy with little to no damage.  I am still concerned for  my DD in Northern NJ, who was told no power for 1-2 weeks.  She took a walk today to survey the neighborhood, and said lines were on the road everywhere and most houses had at least one tree on top of it.  She lost siding and has a tree in her yard, but it is not her tree.  The hard part will be keeping warm as the temps have dropped to the low 40's.  Just glad it is not worse.


     I would like to share two cards I made for OWH.  My first card is the Mid Week Throw Down, which is to Celebrate Friendship.  I used my Unity KOM 1-11, called To the Moon and Back.  My inks are SU! Crumb Cake and Midnight Muse.  I cut stars with my Sweet 'n Sassy star dies and dangled them with twine threaded through silver eyelets.


     Card two is for Sketch #144 and is  made with Pure Luxury card, dp from DCWV, and a white embossed ornament from SU!.  I do not know the embossing folder, as it was one of my DD's.  My sentiment is from Unity KOM 10-12.  I added some silver cording from SU!.  I see some fuzzies on this one, and I know I trimmed them.  Grrrr!


     Thanks for stopping around.  I know these cards are fairly simple, but they were fun to make.

I love your take on this weeks's sketch! The first card is absolutely awesome - love everything you did with it and how it's all star related.

Glad you are okay, and it sounds like your friend is very lucky! I'll keep you both in my thoughts and prayers. What a scary storm... Your cards are wonderful! The sentiment on each one is so true. Take care, my friend - hugs and blessings!

MaryAnne, Tow super nice cards. I like both of them very much. I especially love that paper in your first card. I'm so sorry to hear of your DD's problems. I'm glad it's not worse, but it is still terrible when you are going through it. My thoughts are with her. I am also tickled pink you didn't have too much to handle with the storm. We just got our power back on about 2 hours ago. It has been out since Sunday, but no damage and no trees lost this year like last year, so I'm very happy.
