OWH Catch Up!

     Okay, okay... I have been slipping with my OWH posts lately.  I am here to play a bit of catch-up with the weekly sketches and Monthly ODBD Challenge.

First card up was for OWH Sketch #160

 
     I used a Lockhart apron stamp, a TLC digi sentiment, and Basic Grey designer paper.  I did some Copic coloring, as well as using scraps for my background.  There was a Swiss Dot EF, as well as some black sticky pearls involved.  I did the sentiment streaky to remind me of pickled wood.

Card two is for OWH Sketch #161


     This card is using a digi image that was great fun to color, but has no makers name attached, so I can give credit. My designer paper is from Bo Bunny's Surprise pad, and my card stock is Gina K. Pure Luxury.  See my little sticky dots in the corner?  They reminded me of ice cream swirls, and they were white so I colored them with Copics.  Inside is a digi sentiment that says "Have a Yummy Birthday".  That is from Bross Art Addiction.  There were two different SB dies used, and I added some Crystal Effects to the froth.

Card three is for ODBD Month of March Challenge to use scallops.

 
     Yes, I know I used that same SB oval die on my last card, but the truth is I just love the looks of it!  Lacey Ovals is a favorite!  My designer paper is from Wild Asparagus, and was a gift from a friend.  It was also used to create my flower in a contrasting pattern and was punched with with a Punch a Bunch punch, and formed on a foam pad.  I cut out another favorite, which is the Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish die, which seems to fit just about anywhere.  I did my sponging and stamping with Memento Pistachio.  Sentiment is from Unity, and pearls were added.

     Okay, that is it for me.  Have a glorious Sunday!  I sure hope to see you again soon.

Look at you crafting up such pretty cards! I love that oval die, and don't know why I never bought it! I love that you made the flowers out of coordinating dsp on the last card too - what a great look! And I love sitting right next to you in the ODBD gallery over on OWH :)

All great cards Mary Anne, I like that lacey die too. I just purchased one at our favorite stamp store last month, and have not used it yet. But your lovely cards have inspired me...Hope you are having a great weekend.

Lacey ovals is also a favorite of mine. It really adds so much to a simple card. All these cards are exceptional, which is the norm for your creations. Have a great day.

Wow, you did a lot of catching up! If I had the lacy ovals dies, I'd be using them a lot! I love them. I also really like the Cheery Lynn fancy flourish. I see it used a lot, and now, when I'm working on something, I find plenty of places where I wish I had one. (Stamp show in Allentown soon - and I'll be shopping for one!) All three cards are wonderful, very creative and all very different. Great work!

Love the Apron, my Mom ALWAYS wore one, your bear with the giant ice cream cone (the more dips the better, right?) and your flower card is so pretty. Busy lady you!!
