OWH Sketch #182 Challenge Cards


As soon as I saw the current sketch at Operation Write Home, I knew that I had to use it to make some cards.  I needed to make a sympathy card as well as a thank you card.  However, by the time I stopped for the night, I had made 9 different cards with variations of this sketch.  Actually, the paper used for 2 of the cards didn't fit the sketch, so we will just call them bonus cards.  With the exception of the card bases, all the cards were made using scraps. Some sketches are just perfect for scraps.  Now on to the cards:

I am SO impressed with the variety of cards you were able to create from this one sketch! If you haven't already entered, you should link the baseball theme card to the July ODBD challenge to use stitching on a card (regular or faux). http://operationwritehome.org/our-daily-bread-designs-july-challenge-2/
Keep up the good work!

Cheri, I already posted once your blog / web site. Love the great variety of cards from the sketch. I would love for you to join us at Cards in Envy http://cardsinenvy.blogspot.com/ . We make cards that are no thicker than a 1/4" that "fit in an envelope" without extra postage. Most of our cards go on to Operation Write Home. Keep up the great videos! ~ Marilyn

What a fantastic assortment of cards Cheri! I really love how you took the sketch and, while keeping the basic design, made each one your own. And by the way... love your video! Thanks for playing and sharing!
