S & S Sketch #117

Wow!  I have actually made a card using the current S & S Sketch!  It has truly been awhile since that has happened but I hope to get back on track soon.

Today's card was made using the Doodle Pantry set called Super Birdie.  I was first drawn to this set because of the patriotic theme but now I love it because of it's versitility.  I chose to use the precolored birdie but of course this adorable image also comes in outline format for the coloring enthusiasts out there (you know who you are!) This set also includes the matching background paper and an unusual number of coordinating sentiments - 9 in all.  If you are new to Doodle Pantry I hope you will take a minute to check it out.  Right now, through April 24th, Doodle Pantry is offering 25% off of your entire order when you use the coupon code NOFOOLING.

Here is the sketch I used for inspiration, S & S Sketch #117:

I made six of these cards to go into my Operation Write Home box.  I have to be honest I debated about sending them in because they look like the type of card a child would give to a Dad but after thinking about it I realized that it is also a card that a female hero could send home to her husband who is stateside caring for their children while she is overseas.  What do you think?  Is it "ok" for OWH?

Happy Stamping and God's Richest Blessings,

  14. Super Birdie is one of my favorite images! You did a great job with the S&S sketch this week. I'm so far behind with the goal to use every sketch this year that I think I'm done trying. Having two jobs is really cutting into my craft time!!! I'm just happy I can keep up with my DT commitments.

    Great card and I think it will be fine for an adult to send this to their dad - especially because of the patriotic papers, makes it less childish.

  15. I think a mom or son serving would thankfully appreciate this card and send it to their loved ones. I think it is a fantastic card love the image!
