Simple Stories and Operation Write Home


Sunday - the day to jump start your creativity with the weekly sketch from Operation Write Home's card blog - Stars and Stamps.  

I let my patterned paper do the talking for the design of this card.  As you can see most of the elements of the sketch are in my card.  I only added one element at stop instead of two.  The patterned paper is from Simple Stories 6 x 6 pad Awesome.  The motorcycle was on the paper along with the stars around it so the Hero Arts sentiment was perfect - or I thought so.

Enjoy your Sunday.  I need to get a few groceries today and then I will hibernate - need to do some housework, make a treat for work tomorrow - I have a new assistant starting and it is the tradition in our office to put a table of food outside their door so people can drop over to meet the new person and get a nibble of food.  Provide food and they will come.  I also need to make a monkey card - my new tradition - "welcome to the jungle".
