OWH sketch challenge #131

Thomas & I spent a good part of yesterday in the scrap room playing with paper while watching/listening to the Olympics stream on the laptop. It seems so very weird to be working with fall papers and Seattle hasn't even had summer yet!

I started with this weeks sketch #131 from the Stars & Stamps blog. I changed it up a bit by using ribbon matted with dark brown cardstock & tucked the 3 pieces behind it. The letter stickers needed some definition so I outlined them with a very fine black pen.

I didn't really like the red center piece so I changed it out to yellow and used black letter stickers for this card. I like it a lot better. :)

I made several of each for my next OWH box for Sandy. Then Thomas & I were off to see Rock of Ages at the local $2 theater. Took me back to my high school days and the $0.99 theater downtown..... Broken seats, stale popcorn, smuggled in candy, 80's music...... Ahhhh. The teen could hardly stand to be seen with me (especially when I would sing along with the movie...). The only thing missing was my Letterman's Jacket & hanging out at the frozen yogurt place after the movie. :)

Both of these cards were made for my friend Cindy who was missing her Mom yesterday.... Wish  we could have done something together to make you & your Mom smile....

Both cards used OWH sketch #131. Patterned paper is from a fall stack by DCWV. Stickers are from the fall alphabet stack by DCWV. Ribbon is most likely May Arts. Buttons are from stash....


  1. These are awesome. If pressed, I'd say I like the yellow one better too. Those leaf brads are a great accent, too! Gotta find me that DCWV stack - it's my favorite DP company.

    I felt the same way when I saw Rock of Ages with my friend a few weeks ago. It was so campy but that's what made it so fun, lol. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I actually think I like them equally well...TFS!!!

  3. Great fall cards... I like them both!! :) God bless & big hugs... Tracy

  4. Theresa I love what you've done with this OWH sketch, very cool! Thanks for being our sample card maker for the OWH Midweek Throwdown challenge, I wanted to let you know I have the link fixed now :)
