Hambo Hoedown #49 and OWH Sketch #105

Here's a two-fer. This week's Hambo Hoedown challenges us to make a card for kids using the new Bailey digi image. This card also uses sketch #105 from Operation Write Home. I'm trying to do all the sketches this year. They make me feel very organized when I start on a card and are a great jumping off point, even if I sometimes veer a bit away from the original design.

What a cute puppy! I colored him with Bic Mark Its and Copics and added Glossy Accents for that wet puppy nose. I made the sentiment myself in MS Word. The patterned paper on the card is from Creative Memories and it's been in my stash 3 years, so I was glad to use a little piece of it up!

This is one more card for my Operation Write Home box. :)

Cards shipped to OWH in 2012: none thus far, but my box is filling up nicely!

  11. Using an image of a pet with a heart charm on her collar is always a good idea :)
