An Any Hero Card

This is an Any Hero card for OWH sketch challenge #92 - I liked the red stars paper because I knew it would go well with a khaki color paper - and it does!  I love the circle with Hello in it - one of my favorite go with anything stamps!  I am struggling a bit to make cards or do any type of craft right now - the mind is there - but the body is not up to the challenge.....

Is it summer AGAIN already!

It must be because the tripe digit temperatures have been back for over a week!  So I made summer-y cards!  I case'd the idea - and changed up - pretty much everything!  I even tried unsuccessfully to use my Stamp-a-majig thing - then put it away!  and just went with luck!

thank you, Human!

An OWH sketch challenge card quite the simple one!  3 - 4 X 1.5 strips - and a sentiment - I am discovering that really cool paper becomes even cooler when you cut it up!  Previously I hated cutting my pretty papers!

A girly and "boy-y" card

I love the pink designer paper - and I used the sentiment "happy together" to let my warped sense of humor out for a walk - in honor of "save the taa taa's" month! The masculine card is for an OWH challenge - to make a masculine card!

Merry Merry

Hi - happy Sunday!  I made a Christmas "type" card for the OWH sketch this week.  I visited a small and very very nice craft store on Friday - and their paper was wonderful.  I had to purchase a few select sheets - and used 3 of these to create my card.  I love the old time look and the spots of imperfections.  What a treat to not have to make them myself!  Enjoy!

Wild Feather!

I had a wild feather - you know where to use my Pick a Petal Stampin Up stamps - here is the card I made

Snowman Fever!

The weather FINALLY changed in Arizona and it was cool enough to sit outside and try some Gamsol Magic - and to color a few snowmen...

New Month - New Cards!

My mojo had been seriously injured - but it recovered last night - it fought me all the way - but I have it at 85% capacity now - - - and working towards a complete fix!  The second card is for an Operation Write Home sketch challenge - I sure struggled with measurements - how sad is that!

  So glad to be participating in this blog hop.  This is my 1st try with digistamps - and I colored it with Prismacolor pencils.    I love supporting our troops and heroes with cards - and have FUN doing it!  I like to think it brings them closer to home with each card they write.  Enjoy the day! AND love your puppy!
