Paper Smooches in the OWH SKetch

Happy Sunday! We have had perfect weather here in the East this weekend! It has been nice to soak up some vitamin D without scorching and sweating ( I am a burn and peel kind of gal-love the warmth of the sun- but not the blistering rays!).
 I look forward to the OWH sketch challenge each week and this week I was surprised to hear from Marlene asking to use my card as the sketch inspiration! I am honored!

Here is the sketch:

Here is my original card:

                230 sample

And here is my new card:

I used a swanky cat from Paper Smooches...too cute! I really like the look of a smaller image within a circle!

I am off to another softball game...I played for many years and loved it-so I am very thrilled that Tessa continues to love the game and excels at it! Maggie and Paige were great players as well......and Cori never liked to play.  Her sports career ended when she was hit in the face by the ball....I kind of think she welcomed the gave her an out to stop playing!!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are enjoying wonderful weather!


  1. Diane,

    Kudos on being featured today on the S&S blog -- and for making a second card. You've done a really nice job of combining patterned papers on both cards. And, who doesn't love Paper Smooches?!

  2. I agree Diane -- our weather was absolutely awesome and the perfect time of year to be outside and totally enjoy it.

    I was very excited when I saw that today's sketch was inspired by your card and now LOVE the second card you created too! Both are perfect for OWH and will make some family very happy!

    Thanks for sharing and hope you have a great weeks, sounds like a very nice week for the first full week of Summer! ENJOY the ball game too!!

  3. Congrats on having that fun card of yours featured for the sketch challenge this week! It's a great sketch to follow and now you've made another cute one to gush over! Adorable, both of them!!

  4. It's not a surprise your card was chosen. It's an awesome sketch and an adorable card. Congrats! And your new card using your sketch design is so sweet. I just love the red, white, and black together. Great job!

  5. Congrats on a well deserved sketch award! You're cards are so stinking cute! Live all the "innocent" faces, makes me smile, even though they're up to mischief ! TFS!

  6. Both of your cards are just darling. I adored the original card and I like this week's just as much. Then again, I always like your creations. So glad you got to go to the game yesterday and it is so nice that most of the girls love the game as well. Hope you enjoyed and get to enjoy the rest of today. It is suppose to get very humid around here starting tomorrow.

  7. I love both of these! The papers go so well with the images and totally change the 'feel' of the cards!

  8. Hey Diane --- Great to see you today and so happy you knew it was me...I'm just awful with names/faces at times!! I had a nice day and really enjoyed meeting both Sandy and Heidi, (the owner of Simon Says Stamp). I shop at her store often, so that was a nice plus! It was also great to met you and to know you are the one that made it possible for me to love my wonderful lil Pups! Hugs --- Lisa
