OWH Catch Up Post

     Good morning, friends.  I am so far behind, that I thought I better do a post.  I am going to try and catch up with my Operation Write Home challenges. I will do them oldest to newest.

     Sketch 172 on the Stars and Stamps Blog is as follows:

     I used a kraft base with a floral scrap layer.  The Dotted Swiss EF was used on my orange layers.  The fox image is an oldie from PSX, colored in Copics, and sponged with VersaMagic ink.  I created my sentiment with an SU circle punch and the Petite Curly Label with stamp.

     My Mid-Week Throwdown card is for the So Sentimental Challenge.

     I used Memory Box designer paper, layered on white card.  I paper pieced a Memory Box, Fresh Daisies die, and applied it over my sentiment by Stampendous.  The sentiment was cut out with a Spellbinders Scalloped Square die and sponged with SU! So Saffron ink.

     Next up is the current sketch at Stars and Stamps, #173.

     This card started with layers of cranberry and white, a piece of unknown digital paper, and a rustic tag.  I created my embellishment with a SU! 7/8 Scalloped Circle, Prima, and silver brad.  I added hemp twine to my tag.  The sentiment is from Amuse, and my Copic colored doggie is from Inky Antics.

     Well I feel like I am forgetting something, but I guess not.  Still on baby watch around here.  Doctor has still not made a decision as to how this child will be born.  It is very hard to concentrate on crafting, work, and everything else.  Come on, sweet grandson!

     I also want to send out prayers for the victims of yesterdays deadly tornado in OK.  My heart truly aches for all of you.

What a wonderful OWH collection of cards! I'm loving the fox & pooch images, colors & designs, and especially that great sentiment on the friends card! Way to play catch-up! I hope you won't have to wait too much longer for that little youngster to make his way into the world :)

Love the inky antics pup and all those layers and textures.
The fox card is also layered up with a great mix of papers.
And your friend card is so softly done, so pretty.
