Simple Stories and Operation Write Home
It is Sunday and Stars and Satmps - Operation Write Home's card blog - has their weekly sketch posted. I try to hop to it right away on Sunday morning - so then I know I have one more card made for my next box. The emphasis right now is on mascline cards - the colors are somewhat masculine - they are from the 6 x 6 pad from Simple Stories - Awesome. Great colors - and I do wish I had a sheet or two of that blue houndstooth. YUMMY.
As everyone knows - a sketch is a tool and sometimes we alter things a little - my image is not the same size as the rectangle given in the sketch but I like this sweet little image. I know it will bring smiles to many faces. Also - I had purchased card bases that are kraft colored and they are 4 x 5.5 - so my other sizes are altered some - and of course - I then matted each piece of paper with dark brown since they are busy prints. The fearless leader of Operation Write Home - Sandy Allnock - uses this trick - and I have learned from her.
I am frantically working on my own Easter cards so I imagine there will be some other posts today also. Enjoy your Sunday - now I need another cup of coffee.
