OWH Sunday Sketch Challenge #222

This week's sketch challenge over at Operation Write Home and my response:


SU! designer paper, My Favorite Things Dream Big sentiment, Cuttlebug embossing folder.   A little plain for my taste, but I still like the end result.  BTW - I won the paper during a bloghop from Seongsook,  and the sentiment was from an OWH blogger candy prize!!!  I have been blessed so much by the OWH community, and in so many ways.  I receive much more than I could ever give back....

OWH Mid Week Throw Down - Brown

This week's challenge is to make a card using the color brown.  Happy dance - I love brown!  So many different shades, it can be bold or subtle.  Here is my offering:

K and Company vellum sticker sentiment, DCWV Safari background embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. 

Sorry I have been a bit absent from posting.  I got a "big girl" job, and have been working a lot.  I have not yet retrained my family to not have a full time grocer/cook/maid/laundress.  Hoping to get them on board soon - I miss my craft room!!!!!
