OWH - created cards from This week's sketch #103

New Year - will try and create more cards for the troops this year - just started last year - so the weekly sketches are a great way to get the creative juices going - I need several Birthday cards the next few months so thought I would start there.
Shopped in my collection of Stampin Up stamps again - I need to use my stamps more often since I have so many.

Details - SU stamps from  - Happy Together, Figures of Speech, Happiest Birthday Wishes, Two step stampin - card stock from Stampin Up and various scraps.
Card on the right - decided to use the OWH January challenge and use 3 patterned papers on one card.

January ODBD Challenge!

Stampin Up Birthday Balloons - Cuttlebug emboss folder - Happy Birthday - Smile -  SU cardstock and punches.

I know there are more ideas for this sketch in me, just need to get to work.  I love the weekly Sketch challenges from OWH.

Happy Card making to ALL in 2012!!!


  1. Great cards, Mary! I love the neutral ones with the touch of green, really lovely! Thanks for joining us in this week's OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge!

  2. I Loe the bright yellow card with the balloons - It is so cheerful and pretty - and can really be used for any age group.

  3. Very nice cards! I like the subtle papers and colors of the bird design but the bright balloons are great too. This sketch works so well with them and makes it feel like they are floating. Thanks for supporting OWH!
