I am so Grateful for you...CASEing my friend Debbie C.

I have another CASE (Copy And Share Everything) to share with you today.  My Facebook friend, who incidentally lives in the same county as I do although we have not yet met face to face, Debbie C. inspired me to make this card:

I came across this single 8.5 x 11 sheet of patterned paper in my stash and knew immediately that I needed to find a sketch that would highlight it, not hide it.  Debbie's card (see below) gave me the perfect sketch. Thanks Deb!

Debbie doesn't have a blog but you can see more of her creations on her Flicker page here.

OWH Sketch #154 - Casing Kristie M.

Today's card was inspired by Kristie M. of The best things in life are Pink.  Kristie is a magician with a 6x6 pad of paper and I am very grateful for the inspiration I have gleaned from her tutorial on the S&S blog (which you can enjoy here.)

This particular 6x6 pad I purchased over the internet and have found it particularly challenging to work with.  However, I am happy with this card and make 8 similar cards as well.  I am sorry to say I was unable to "stick it out" and use up the entire pad like Kristie would have done.  But, on the upside, I resisted the temptation to pitch the rest in File 13 and have set it aside for another day.

Here is OWH Sketch #154 - I obviously did not follow the measurements or add all of the layers but worked with the general idea mostly because the size of the sentiment was already determined and was so big it would have swallowed up the smaller squares.

To see Kristie's card(s) just click on the blog link above in the first sentence.

Thanks for stopping by, would love to hear what YOU think of this crazy/loud paper!

I'm Back....with OWH Sketch #218

I'm back....and can't believe it has been 10 months since my last post!  I won't bore you with the details, let it suffice to say that I am happily stamping again.  My love and support for Operation Write Home is as strong as ever but I have been serving more "behind the scenes" as the new Treasurer rather than out front making and posting cards.  I hope to have found a new balance and to get back to creating cards for our heroes again.

Enough about me....lets' see some cards!

This card was inspired by OWH Sketch #218.

Here is the sketch:

The really fun thing about this card is that I have had this paper for several years.  I only had the one 12 x 12 sheet but with this sketch I was able to make 9 identical cards (that I will be assembling in a few weeks at the Cozy Crop House!)

I will be back with more....I am on a roll!
