OWH Mid-Month Throwdown - Patriotic Colors

I am still just loving this die cut from My Favorite Things. I thought it would be fun to make a patriotic colored card for the OWH Mid-Month Throwdown card challenge. With spring blooming, at least here in Washington state, pretty flowers just seemed appropriate for a love card.

Doodlebug's - Hip Hip Hooray 6x6 cards

The Doodlebug 6x6 paper pad is all finished now. I made a total of 21 cards with it this time. Although I'd rather make pink and girly cards all the time, I try to remember who will be using my cards and what are their needs. I donate the majority of my cards to Operation Write Home. And while some pink and girly is fine, it's really better to do a wider variety of colors and styles.

March ODBD card challenge

This month's Operation Write Home ODBD card challenge is perfect for me. The challenge is to have the sentiment as the main focus on a card. I tend to mostly use sentiments and patterned paper rather than images on my cards. Although sometimes, I love adding a fun paper pieced image. The first card is my entry for the March ODBD challenge.

For my second card, I played with the MFT die cut and heat embossing.

Deconstructed Sketch #191

I'm having so much fun with these cute little monsters. I did some more paper piecing and added some Glossy Accents to the monster's eye for added texture and shine. The deconstructed sketch I followed was a square one that I modified to an A2 size card.
