Operation Write Home Sketch Card


Good Sunday morning - trying to start my Sunday off with a little creativity - maybe I can jump start my creativity for later in the day - you know - after you get groceries and new wipers for your car - etc - maybe then while you are cleaning and doing laundry - you might find some time to create something.  We will see.

This card is based on the sketch on Operation Write Home's card blog - Stars and Stripes - a new sketch every Sunday morning to start your mo jo engine running.

The focal point is the beautiful Penny Black sticker.  The background papers are from We R Memory Keepers.  The matting around the bird and the little brown strip are Christmas papers.  The sentiment sticker is by SRM Stickers and I think the ribbon is May Arts.

Enjoy your Sunday.

Who knew a sticker could look this good? You really surprised me with this pretty card, and I'd have never guessed you didn't color those pretty birds :)

I also have become a huge fan of the fabulous and wonderful Stickeroos that are by Penny Black. I have used them a few times on cards, especially when my MOJO is missing or when I need a card quickly, and they always looks really nice.

I'm sure no one would ever know if we didn't tell them! :)

This one is especially lovely!!

Wow, I'm with those who didn't know that a sticker could look that beautiful! I'd have sworn you colored them yourself! I didn't even know Penny Black made those stickers! (I really need to get out more, lol)

It's a flat out gorgeous card with a super take on the sketch!
