OWH Sketch #225

I don't usually have much mojo to complete the OWH Sketches on Sundays...afterall it's my Monday.  But I really want to complete my OWH box soon. I'm just not fond of doing multiples of the same card and with all the extracurriculars I'm involved in, I don't have the time to get a lot done.  Today I committed to doing the sketch (and make my current box and even 50 cards). With the mojo and motivation, I still struggled.  First I spilled some red wine and got some on the white card base.  Then when I was scoring the replacement base, I scored in the wrong place.  After all that, I completed the sketch.

Here's Sketch #225

Thanks for stopping by!

Cards from 6X6 Paper Pad

Confession: I've been a little obsessive about 6X6 paper pads lately.  All the matchey, pretty paper in one little package.  What's not to love?
Using Seongsook's tutorial and templates to work through a We R Memory Keepers Feelin' Groovy paper stack, I created these cards for Operation Write Home.
