OWH Sketch 150

Hello! Here is the newest sketch for OWH
I missed last week's midweek throwdown...this time of year I am challenged to find time to create. After missing a challenge, I was determined to have a fabulous card today...not happening! LOL

I am not sure what I do not love about the card.. I like the MME Darling Dear paper, I like the bee and sentiment stamps from the Stamps of Life.  Maybe it is that it seems like a dark card when in my head it was going to be light and fun. In person- the yellow in the bee matches the yellow in the paper...on my screen the paper looks too brown. And maybe it is that I did not trim my papers evenly at the bottom! lol Or maybe I need to do something else to all that white around the bees!
I am going to try to wade through the bags of gifts strewn about my house and made a card for the Our Daily Bread challenge- a flower card....that should be easier for me!

Before I go- I want to share 2 links.
I know most of the traffic on my blog is from OWH- but just in case anyone missed it, Sandy Allnock, President of OWH, did a great is really fun! You choose a sketch, a theme, a technique etc and there are videos for each and every choice you make! I only viewed a few of them- but what a fun idea..and hopefully will inspire some great cards for our troops. operationwritehome/org/icp
A truly fun site is Portable North Pole- you enter information for a child or adult, naughty or nice and they create a video with Santa and his elves! What fun for kids young and old to hear Santa talk about them and some of their can even add a photo--to make it really personal- and it is free! I sent a video to 2 of my nieces who are away at college... cannot wait for them to check it out! 
I plan to make about 6 more!  Try it-little children go crazy when Santa says their names!  I have used the site for the past 3 or 4 years- no spam or any issues with the site.

Have a great week!


  1. Those little bees are darling. Quite often I go through what you are experiencing today with this card. I feel it "needs" a change or something added but can't figure out what. I, personally find your card very nice just the way it is. Thanks for the links.

  2. I love your paper mix...the image and sentiment! tfs!!!

  3. Hi Diane. I Know how you feel. Most often this great vision in my head is not the way it turns out.But I have to tell you that your card is adorable! I love the paper and the bee with the bling is so cute....great card!

  4. Cute card Diane, and I love those bees. I think we all have problems with those darn visions in our heads. But really, your card is cute.


I appreciate your comments and feedback on my posts! Thanks for taking the time to stop by!
