OWH Skip with SRM Stickers

What better way to close out a fun month of OWH Birthday Bash activities than with a SKIP (our own version of a short hop) with OWH Blog Team Members? For those of you who watch OWHtv with Sandy on Thursday’s this is sort of a team version of ‘Stump Sandy’. We were each given the same three SRM Stickers and challenegd to create a holiday card with them. We haven’t shared our designs and thought it would be fun to see all the different ideas. I decided I’d use a non-traditional color combo and have some fun... and the result was what I’m calling my 'Caribbean Christmas Card'.



Sentiment & Tree by SRM Stickers • Plaid Paper by Doodlebug

Sizzix 'Plaid' Embossing Folder • Ranger Glossy Enamel Accents in White
Ribbon from Michael's Crafts



I’ll pick a random winner from the comments left on this post to get a set of these stickers from our friends at SRM Stickers. You have until midnight Tuesday and winners will be announced on Thursday.



Here’s the skipping path...in case you’ve gotten lost.


Your next stop is Allison's Creations


Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the skip!
