OWH: June Mid-Month Throwdown

For this months mid-month throw down challenge we where asked to use at least one banner on a card. Here is one of the cards I came up with for this challenge.

My card was inspired by a card I found on Pinterest, here. the actual website doesn't seem to be working correctly, so I'm not clear on who to give credit to, but I did really like this layout, so I decided to make my own card using it as a guide. I made three cards using this layout, and I'll be sending them off with my last box of cards for OWH. I had a few banners left, so I made a couple more cards with a different layout, that I will also add to my shipment.

I really love using banners, and was glad to see this challenge.

My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone, I know it's been a while, but hopefully I'll get in a few posts while I'm enjoying summer break. For this post, I'm featuring a card that I made for the My Favorite Things Card Sketch Challenge, using the sketch provided.

Since I have been busy making cards for Operation Write Home, and one of the themes I'm making cards for it Christmas, I decided to use stamps from the MFT Jingle All The Way stamp and die sets, which I absolutely fell in love with, and just had to have!

Don't you just love this happy Santa? How can anyone resist bringing him! I really enjoyed coloring him and the cute little tree that is included in the set. I added some Jewel Dazzles, to add a little sparkle to the tree and ribbon.
