Two More

That's right, I have two more cards to share from the weekend's virtual card making party at OWH. This is Challenge #4, use bright colors. I had this adorable image from Doodle Pantry called Strawberry Ants (I used the color version here) printed and cut out for quite some time. It sat on my desk screaming at me to "use me" for this brights challenge!! So I did! The papers are also part of this set. I used another OWH sketch, #35.

Another great thing about these challenges, besides making cards for the troops to send home to family and friends, I get to pull out some stamps that haven't seen ink in a very long time...if ever!!! Case in point is this adorable cowgirl from Hero Arts. This card is for Challenge #5, sponsored by Our Daily Bread, to use 5 elements on your card. At first I thought, impossible, I want to keep these cards as uncluttered as possible. But then I figured it out, everything on a card can be counted as an element!! Okay, I may be stretching it a little bit, but here goes: 1). Designer papers (My Mind's Eye Everyday Flair) 2). Brads 3). Twine 4). Sewing 5). Dimensionals. This sketch, yep, you guessed it, is from OWH, the bonus sketch.

I saw my hummingbird this morning, so food is made and the feeder is washed. Once the sugar water is cooled they'll be fed. I so enjoy to watch these little wonders of nature.

Your strawberry card looks so yummy. They are ripe and ready to be picked here in our area at the local farms. OWH will love both of your cards and your generosity.
