S&S Sketch #49

Happy New Year!  My first post for 2011 is in response to the last Sketch Challenge on OWH Stars & Stamps blog.

Here is the sketch:


I rotated it a quarter turn counter clockwise and here is my card:


The image is a Meljen's design and is available only at Whimsy Stamps.  I copied the image into MS Word and added the sentiment myself.  However, I must note here that my dh (dear husband) told me there was a typo on my card front.  My heart flipped and I said "where?!?"  and he said "shouldn't it say 'always and FURever'?"  How I missed that I will never know!  I am always seeking clever sayings to match up with my digi's and just can't believe I didn't think of that one myself.  I guess that is why they say two heads are better than one?  So, I will be fixing the "typo" and reprinting before I duplicate this for my next box for OWH.
  
The bp is Stampin' Up, the ribbon is from JoAnn's, and the ran the first layer through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder.

While this is the first post of 2011 it is not my first card.  I actually made this a few days ago and just haven't taken the time to post it until now.  Here are the two designs I worked with today for OWH and made 12 of each design:




They both seem kinda plain but I prefer to use the classification of "Clean and Simple"  (LOL)  Actually, I have been doing so much detailed coloring in this batch for OWH that I needed to take a break. Besides, I also needed some variety in the color realm.  I would think that both cards can be used for either a male or female, don't you?

Thanks for stopping by...I would love to hear your comments and will happily visit your blog if you leave me your address ;)

Again, Happy New Year

  1. I think clean an simple is perfect for OWH cards. These could go to anyone. Love the FURever sentiment too, very cute!

  2. I came via Feline Playful but your link did not work, so you may want to correct that. I think it is missing a letter in your name? I am a big fan of OWH too- great cause!
