OWH Birthday Bash

Just a quick post to say that I hope everyone enjoys all the fun challenges coming this month as part of the OWH Birthday Bash. I'm grateful to all the wonderful sponsors who support OWH.

Here's the card I made for the WeR challenge. I seldom used brads and eyelets because while I loved the look of them they were a hassle. If you have not tried this tool I suggest you try one out the next chance you get, whether at a crop or a friend's, to see if you end up liking it as much as I do. It's become indispensable to me in my card making.


This is my CASE of Ardeth's beautiful clean and simple card design. I have a bunch of papers like this with bold, big patterns that I keep avoiding and I think this layout will finally let me use them up.


Lastly, here is a Miss You card for the Inspired Stamps challenge. Miss You and Thinking of You card designs are a mainstay in my OWH boxes.



Happy Crafting Everyone!

Maybe someday I will get to give that tool a try. I sure like how yours came out and I love the first card.... I just got that stamp and now I am inspired to use it! That 3rd card is really nice, love the different colored swirls.

I love your card with the eyelets. I can only imagine how awesome that tool is and would love to win it. Thanks for sharing your beautiful cards!

Great cards this time around using those big bold patterns. I too struggle to use them , so maybe this is the boost I need to finally use them!

Oooh, I just love these cards! I think your fall card with the eyelets is my favorite - that sentiment is terrific!

I love my Crop-a-Dile too! You did a great job with all 3 cards. I agree that the bold designs done like your second card is perfect and I too have tons that need to be done.

Thanks for entering the OWH day 2 challenge and the others too!

Really like your "miss you" card - the orange is perfect for the season and really pops!
