OWH sketch 109

hey there, it’s Sunday and time for another sketch from Operation Write Home! Be sure to play along this week as there’s a prize from Doodle Pantry to win. 🙂

My DH’s birthday is this week and I, as usual, don’t have anything ready. So, I thought I’d use this sketch to make him a card. 🙂

Stamps are Unity Stamp Co; Basic Grey dp and random other stuff.

Since I’ve hit a 100 cards, my spending freeze is over. (Boy, is it OVER. LOL) I bought:
ATG tape (a necessity, though)
ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon – I am anticipating this package SO much!!
A very pretty vintage cowgirl-ish set from My Mind’s Eye on Scrapbook Steals
Some bazzill cardstock (another necessity)
The new Imaginisce ribbon cutter!!!!!!
The Tim Holtz tiny attacher

And now, another spending freeze. I have to send a box in for the Mother’s Day challenge by March 10 to Kris with a minimum of 100 cards – I have a start already, so this is not crazy talk – or the freeze continues until the end of Lent (which is Easter).

And speaking of Lent, I’m giving up baked goods. *hold me*

So, any encouragement is welcome. And please join me in my new challenge, if you are so inclined!!

  1. Hubby will love this one, I'm sure of it. I love that sentiment. Bakes Goods?? Boy are you good. I just can't give up that one. I'll have to try your spending freeze self challenge though. I'm like a total addict. The more I KNOW I should not buy things, the more I shop. I justify every purchase by saying “I NEED that”. LOL Have a good night.

  2. Boy, giving up baked good is difficult. I have given up chocolate in the past and that was hard enough! I like your card; especially the placement of the “playing cards”!

  3. Wow, I haven't seen that Unity stamp…love it and your hubby will love this card! Sounds like you are having fun spending girlie! I love RRR ribbons…I've been on a spending freeze for a while..I may need to set limits like yours…great examples and such a wonderful way to make others smile with your creations! And ahem…there is no way I could give up baked goods…oh my gosh, you certainly are an overachiever to do that!!! Way to go Jen!
