Operation Write Home Sketch Challenge #74


Here's the Operation Write Home Sketch  Challenge for the week!

I saw alot of feminine cards submitted on the blog page http://www.owhstarsandstamps.org/
and thought I would do one for the boys!


I really like participating in the sketch challenge for three good reasons.....
1.  It gets me to try new card layouts
2.  When I'm all finished I have one more card in my box that I am filling up to send off to OWH
3.  I get to use up scraps of all that pretty paper I've been hanging on to.  The requested card size of 4.25 x 5.5 is perfect for piecing.

If I get a good response on the card I always make a few more because once it's already thought out making a few more is always easy.  And chances are good that I still have everything I exprimented with coming up with the card still scattered all around my craft room.   Sometimes it looks like a tornado went whipping through the room - my poor dog - she can always walk into the room but alot of the time she has to back out since there is no room to turn around.

I was originally going to make one for the girls and one for the guys but I am running out of time.  I was having some computer issues that ate up most of my day (been there done that right?)Hope you like this one!

Patterend Paper:  K& Co.  Addison

This is such a wonderful thing to do Jeanne. Your design is lovely and your pendant looks fantastic with these patterns and colors. Well done!
