|Thanks for Everything|
This is Ciara, OWH's mascot. I don't have the stamp, but actually got it in a swap from Sandi, a gal on a swap board on FB. I'm not too keen on my colored penciling still, but I think it's good enough to pass. The sentiment is heat embossed and the plaid paper is from DCWV's Stripes, Dots, and Plaids stack.
I also made some Halloween cards for my next box (without the morbidity, of course) with a small Martha Stewart pack I got on clearance after last's year's Halloween. This was pretty fun. I didn't do Halloween cards last year because I didn't have any 'ween themed paper, but I guess it just goes to show you, if you've got the paper, you can do anything, haha.

Here's a final card for this last week's bunch...
There's a few things I really like about this guy. First, the flowers come from a swap :). Second, I didn't curl the petals like I usually do and I think it looks just as cool. Even a bit CAS-er actually. Third, the DP is from a 12x12 $1 pack I got a long time ago and never broke into. I was actually considering using it for bases for scrappy backgrounds, but maybe there is some life in it yet. And lastly, I stamped onto the card front itself. I don't do this often because I get nervous I'll screw it up and end up stamping - and then screwing up - the whole card front. I had success on the first try though, which makes me happy. The card front is a tiny bit textured, DCWV-style. As a side note, this is Sketch #78. Oh boy, there's ATG tape in the bottom left corner. Growl!!
Now I'm going to
As always, thanks for visiting and I hope you have a great day!
