Sketch Challenge #165, Challenge - Ombre` and Bootcamp -the Rule of Thirds

Good Monday afternoon (again) --wow my 2nd post for the day -- trying to get these all posted.  Also working on getting cards boxed up and off to OWH tomorrow. 

Wishing everyone a great week - thanks for stopping in and visiting.



OWH Sketch Challenge 165 - 

Midweek Challenge - Ombre` colors/patterns - colors graduating from light to dark.
This card won't be going to OWH with the glitter paper -- this is for a friend
of mine that likes the bling.  :-)

This is for the Bootcamp lesson - the Rule of Thirds.  I used
this week's Sketch 165 but moved the center band up similar  to
what Patricia, this weeks sketch samples.

I made a template with vellum to help me find my third "sweet spot" -
this shows it over my card and below with any card.

OWH Sketch Challenges #163 & #164 and Midweek Color Challenge and the Spirelli Tutorial

Hello -- well I am a few challenges behind.  I haven't had as much time in the craft room these days.  Hubby is getting ready to have some surgery so going to various doctors has been taking up lots of our time and getting in a little ATVing here in the desert before hubby is out of commission for a few weeks.  I'll share a picture of a couple of wild mustangs we saw as we were heading up the mountain trail.  We thought it was awesome to see these wonderful animals.

Well thanks for stopping in -- I'll have another post later today.  I will come back with supplies on the cards a bit later.  Much of what I have used have been SU products.



OWH Sketch Challenge #164

Midweek Throwdown Color Challenge - use blue & green colors on your card then
if your up for it -- then add orange and a neutral to it.

Spirelli Tutorial on March 5th

OWH Sketch Challenge 162

Good Monday afternoon,

Well here is my card for Sunday's challenge over at OWH -- it was a fun challenge -- I am going to do more of these -- it is a nice way to use up some scraps DP.  I just purchased a 6 x 6 pad  by My Minds Eye - Bramble Rose and really love the ole' time shabby country look to the paper.  This card I tried something new -- I used some 26 gauge beading wire to add a little bling.  Please let me know what you think.  Now on to the create something for Our Daily Bread Design March Challenge.  This challenge is to use a scallop on your card.

Happy crafting and blessings,


Supplies:  Sentiment - SU - Feel Goods, ink - Early Espresso
DP - My Minds Eye - Bramble Rose
Wrights flowers died with SU ink -
wire is 26 gauge Beading wire

OWH Sketch Challenge 161 and Midweek Recipe Mix

Good Saturday Afternoon,

Well I have been running behind all week.   Can't say why -- just been on the go and other things have been taking up my time, i.e. doctor appointments,  dentists, meetings, tax time, shopping, shopping and shopping LOL, other crafty endeavors, etc. etc.  I know no excuses -- there are so many that post every single day and I so admire them.  I will work at doing better with regular posts. 

I made a couple of cards and a St. Patrick's Day Wreath for the front door.  My first card is for both the OWH Sketch Challenge 161 and the Midweek Recipe Challenge to use 1 Embossing Folder, 1 Border Punch or Die, 2 Patterned Papers and 1 Ribbon or Twine.  The second card I made for a friend's son  who is celebrating the birth of his first son.

I enjoyed having a wreath on the front door through the Christmas Holiday so I decided that I would keep a wreath on the front door all year.  So I made one for Valentine's Day and now St. Patrick's Day.   I will be working on my Easter wreath next.  I'll show you that one when it is finished.

I also did the random draw for those of you that posted a card on my blog for the OWH - Virtual Card Making Party.  And that lucky winner is:

#10 - Linda L at Creepin Along Blog

Congratulations -- I'll leave a post on your blog.  A big "thank you" to all of you that took the  all white/cream challenge.  You all did a great job meeting the challenge.

Whew -- I think I am all caught up until tomorrow when the OWH Sketch Challenge #162 will be out - Oh -- there is also the Our Daily Bread Design March Challenge to use a scallop on your card.  Also a reminder -- Mother's Day cards are due to the OWH Shippers on March 31st.  Okay - I think I am finished now.

Thanks for stopping in and blessing to all!
