Simple Stories Paper and Operation Write Home Cards
It is Sunday - to start my day off with creativity - I went to Stars and Stripes Blog - card blog for Operation Write Home - to get their weekly sketch. Both cards started with the sketch but the bottom card took a different turn - I have been trying to make masculine cards so dug out my trusty truck stamp from the old Cornish Heritage Farms. The "UR COOL" is on one of the pieces of paper so thought it worked well for a sentiment.
The first card stayed pretty much on the sketch track. I did not like the star as an embellishment after I put it on but when I removed it - alas - I tore paper underneath so the star went back on. It does pick up the stars in the background paper. The stamp used is by Hero Arts and is one I have had for years and use it quite often on cards. I like trees. Of course, on both cards, the image and sentiment are both pop dotted.
The paper collection is from a 6 x 6 pad from Simple Stories called Awesome. Don't tell anyone I bought three more 6 x 6 pads yesterday. Shhhhhh - it is our secret.
Well I promised myself I would pick up the garage today because we are in this great stretch of weather in Wisconsin - over a week of 70's and 80's. Not too hard to take. Enjoy the remainder of your day.
