OWH MWT – Father cards

Hello there and happy Wednesday! I cannot catch up this week… my daughters were off school on Monday, so I feel perpetually 24 hours behind, even though I keep reminding myself of the actual date.

Today’s OWH challenge is to make Father’s Day cards. I like to make just Father and Dad cards (and husband, too!) so they can be used longer. 🙂

I also used Sunday’s sketch, which was 218:

OWH MWT- purple and yellow

So I saw this morning’s Operation Write Home challenge, and all I can think is, “Vikings colors? WHAT? Don’t they know I live in Wisconsin?”

Ha ha! Sorry, Allison, it’s a great color challenge. 🙂

And anyhow, I was assembling this card just last night -serendipity or what?? – and I left the sentiment for this morning. Now, it does have a little more pink than purple but we’re going to call it close enough, okay? It has purple. It has yellow. I totally followed the rules.

I updated my stamps for sale page way up there  at the top if you’re interested. I have so much more to clear out! Please feel free to make offers if you think a price is too high. I’m happy to discount shipping if you buy more than one item! 🙂

Oh, and if you are still wanting to purchase the Paper Smooches Circle of Honor set for OWH, it’s on Blitsy right now for $11! 🙂 I am coveting that Superhero PS stamp set, but alas, it’s not in the budget today. :/

OWH sketch 217 – howdy, cowboy

Hello!

time for another great Operation Write Home sketch. I haven’t been doing the best with these lately but today is my birthday, so everyone is letting me have a little time to do my own thing. 😉 Bonus – this card fell together in minutes. LOVE that – it hardly EVER happens! This is sketch 217.

OWH MWT – donut be sad

Hello!

Today’s Operation Write Home challenge is to make punny cards. Recently, Unity Stamp Co. made some punny stamps and I bought this one, which sadly sat un-inked until now. No more! It’s super cute, though I do wish it was a bit bigger!

I’m also linking this up with Unity’s Friends with Flair Friday link up! Be sure to head back to the unity blog and check out all of the cool projects. 🙂

Thanks for visiting me today! I am still trying to clear out some stamps, won’t you take a look and see if there’s anything you need? (Look up at the top for the sale page, right under the photo header!) 🙂 Make me an offer!

OWH MWT – pastel love cards

Hello!

Time for an Operation Write Home mid-week throwdown and this week’s challenge is to use pastels. That’s not really my thing but I have been trying to use up the last of this Basic Grey pad, which is a lot of pastels, and so this challenge was very timely. I’ve really struggled with this 6×6 as I’m just not inspired by the colors and patterns.

I decided to go for simple and make a masculine and a feminine card.

Supplies: Basic Grey papers, Gina K card stock, random ribbon from stash, heart and sentiments by Unity Stamp Co

This awesome sentiment kit is one of the ‘everything’ kits by Unity Stamp Co. I’ve purchased a couple of the kits and I really, really like them! (Hint: wait for a sale. They go down to $12 often!)

FYI – I did add a for sale page (see the tab at the top?) and there are several things left of my initial purge. I am working on purge #2 today and I have a lot of inks to list. I should have it updated by tonight if you are interested, so email me or check back later.

Also, if you haven’t visited Blitsy yet – go there! It’s a discount crafting site (with paper crafts, yarn, jewelry making things, etc). I found Paper Smooches and Spellbinders there the past couple of weeks, and this week there are some Unity and Maya Road stamps! Go check it out!

Thanks for visiting me today!
