Operation Write Home Memorial Day Blog Hop



Hi and welcome to my blog.  For this wonderful blog hop, I am using sketch 122 and sketch 92.

Add caption

I really like this sketch because it has so many areas that can showcase a paper's design and texture.  I made two cards from this sketch.



I really loved the star paper so I made another card using sketch 92 - I was not able to get a very clear picture of this one.


I hope you have enjoyed looking at my cards today.

  4. I like all 3 but think #1 is my favr. The colors of the paper remind me of the beach, the star paper & embossing tie it all together.

  97. what a wonderful arrangement of cards!!! Love how you showed different ways to use the sketches!!! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  98. Three nice cards! I really like the background paper on the first card, with it varying colors. But my favorite of your trio is the second card. The contrast with the black, the two brads on each narrow strip, and the trimmed sentiment panel all work together to make a very "balanced" looking card.

    ReplyDelete
  99. LOVE the multi-colored star paper, it looks great on all 3 cards. How fun that you used the same supplies yet each card has its own look. TFS and supporting OWH.
