Operation Write Home Sketch Challenge #245

It's been a long time since I participated in a sketch challenge over at Operation Write Home.
 I forgot how much I liked using a sketch as design inspiration.

Here's my card for OWH Sketch Challenge #245

and here is  sketch #245


This is the first time I've used my new, large, flower  punch that I bought at my local Hobby Lobby when they had their brand at half price. All of the flowers on this card were punched with that punch. 

The papers used were all from a Hampton Art paper pad "Berry Blast". 

I used a scrap of left over Kraft paper for the tag and the ribbon on it was a snippet left over  from a mini album.  The playground over at Pixie's Snippets Playground  is open for an extended amount for the holidays so I'm going to play there for a second time this week.

Have a great day!

Operation Write Home & Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge

This is the card that I made for this months Our Daily Bread Designs  Challenge.
We are to use primary colors on our card.
 Our Daily Bread Designs sponsors this monthly challenge over  on The Operation Write Home Blog.
ODBD will pay the shipping costs for one box of cards to be sent to our deployed heroes if 25 cards are entered in the challenge and will pay the cost of two boxes of cards to be sent if 50 cards are entered.

I used scraps of white card stock for the embossed background and used some leftover snippets of white for the sentiment label and blue for the sentiment. I'll be playing over on Pixie's Snippets Playground again this month so check out all the other entries HERE.

I am also entering my card in The Loves Rubberstamps Challenge

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today. Thank you to all the new followers that joined my blog in 2014 and I wish you all a very "Happy New Year"!
See you soon.

My Mini File Folder Album

This mini album was made using plain standard size file folders from Staples. I think I used three folders to make the album. The page sizes in this album are 4 1/2 inches by 6 1/2 inches.

I will be playing at Pixie's Playground again this week  because the front cover of this album  has letters and hearts that were cut from snippets of paper from my scrap collection and also the paper beads on the twine were made from snippets. 

The following pictures show some of the pages with photo mat inserts.

The papers used for the pages and photo mats are from a 6 inch by 6 inch  designer paper pad by Colorbok  named "Natural Expressions".

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you will stop back soon.
