Sketch # 158
I checked out the new Sketch on OWH's website and decided to get to it this afternoon. It looked fun and easy. And I needed some to do in my scrapbook room while hubby hammered, sawed, and drilled at the window sills. We got our new windows installed this week. Hubby wanted to finish a couple of the sills himself instead of the installers doing them. The new windows look great!
On to Sketch #158!
I had been organizing some items and found some Cricut cuts I had made a while ago and hadn't used yet. The OWH blog skip this weekend was Cards with Critters in honor of Groundhog Day. I had some critters to use and found some critter papers.
The first one is kitty paper. I had bought a package of 25 sheets at Tuesday Morning or Big Lots for a project at school and hadn't used all the paper yet. The Cat Chatter was doublesided so I used the dark back for the small rectangle and cut lime cardstock for the 2 1/4" square. I used some of the lime paper for the 1/4" strip. I had a sentiment - Have a purrrrfect day! - for a few cards but then I just put Hello on them. I added some bling and twine. I had some flowers in a stack and they were sticky-backed. Not sure where I got them but they worked on the cards for the 2 embellishments on the sketch. The cat was cut on my Cricut awhile ago and I drew its face.
OK, it seemed only fair to make some dog cards too. All three papers ( maroon, dog treats, and striped dog words) used on this card are Making Memories papers from the stash with a few scraps for the Hello sentiment. I didn't add a 1/4" strip to this card since it had stripes on it already. I added dog bones brads and a bit of ribbon and again drew the facial features on the dog, from a Cricut cart awhile back.
I finished the adding of the card to the base and the drawing of the faces during the Super Bowl game. The second half of the game was pretty good after the added excitement of a 35 minutes delay. So I got 50 cards done today, with most of the cards going in OWH box.
Another fun Sketch done and checked off my list.
