SALS #24, OWH Throwdown Color Challenge and One More


I did a little crafting over the weekend. I have not been entering any card challenges and would like to get back in the grove. I decided to go back to the first challenge site I ever entered at Seems A Little Sketchy. I like their sketches and the challenge gives you two weeks which I like. Here is Seems A Little Sketchy #24.



This is the card I want to enter in this challenge.

This cute little piggy is from Doodle Pantry. They have some adorable images and sentiments. They also have some pre-colored if you aren't into coloring. I have gotten some of both as sometimes I am in a hurry. This little piggy I did color with my copic markers.  I thought the sentiment was cute! I am sending this to a little boy who is having surgery next month. Hope it makes him smile. The papers are from Echo Park. Thanks to a reminder from my friend Allison I also want to enter this card in Doodle Pantry Challenge #28.



This next card I made for Operation Write Home Midweek Throwdown Color Challenge. I have been trying to do their challenges so that I will keep making cards to send to them. I am such a believer and supporter of this organization. This weeks challenge is being sponsored by Doodle Pantry. The challenge was to make cards using black and white with a pop of red or green.

Here is my card.
I used embossing folders to texture the white cardstock pieces. I used a red pen to color a single heart and covered with glossy accents. I wasn't sure what to do with a sentiment when I remembered I had a sizzlets oval tag. I die cut the oval black & white and stamped with "I love you" which I believe is a unity stamp and attached with red ribbon.


Have a good one!

  2. These are both great cards, Valerie! My first design team was Seems A Little Sketchy but I haven't played along since I left - thanks for reminding me!

    Don't forget that if you haven't entered the Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge this month, you can enter your piggy card - deadline is October 24. :-)
