OWH Midweek Throwdown & Sketch #51

Hello everyone!  So glad you could stop by for a moment today - I have another fun card to share with you today.  This card was inspired by my oldest daughter, Alyssa, who shared a youtube video with us on her last visit home from college that was so funny we are still quoting it!  So, I made this card for her and liked it so much I decided to make a dozen more for my Operation Write Home box.

I used the precolored version of Doodle Pantry's Oh My Ant which comes with the outline version of the ant as well as the precolored ant, 4 phrases, and two patterned papers (one of which I used on my card.)  I layered the image and sentiment with Stampin' Up! Green Galore and Basic Black then mounted it on Creamy Caramel that I had dry embossed with my Cuttlebug.  I also used a black gel pen for the faux stitching. 

Here is OWH Sketch #51 that I was working from:

I am entering this card in the Operation Write Home Midweek Throwdown Challenge - Kids Cards.  This catagory is one of my favorites because I love the idea of the link that is made between a Hero and their child when they send home a handmade card filled with words of love that the child can hold on to whenever they are missing Mommy or Daddy. 

Other Challenges:


  1. Hi Lisa, just adorable! this ant is just too funny! Love that expression! Great card!
