Pet card challenge from OWH FB page.

We've been having fun on the OWH FB page with challenges lately and I got way laid with cows!  But here's one for a challenge from earlier this month from Jen M in honor of her pet Jack who recently passed away:  Make a pet card.  So I dug out one of my 100s of cat stamps (yeah I have way more cats than cows), and made this one.  I also used a sentiment from an OWH Hero Arts fund raising stamp set per Cora's challenge on April 10th.

Cows, cows, and more cows.


Last post I discovered I had a large number of cow stamps.  Who bought all of these?  And my friend Cora challenged me to use all of them to make cards for OWH.  She also suggested I post a challenge on the OWH FB page for anyone else having cow stamps to make a card with any they had. 

So, not one to pass up a challenge,  I posted it on the FB and it's getting kind of deep over there.    Yee haw!

I'd say OWH card makers are outstanding in their field.  (snicker)

April Card Making...

After a slump of a few weeks...I know that last post shows a ton of cards, but honestly, those were mostly in January and February...I think I've found some mojo and got going again.

The first group of cards were made at a SU card making party at Tracy's March 20th.

Spring cleaning, and catching up the blog.

It's been awhile since I've posted and I have made a bunch of cards since Christmas.  A few I have posted, but there are many not entered here and I want to save them in case I decide to make another one or two or tweak the ideas.  Not that I have any dearth of ideas with the OWH website and the OWH FB page, and all those magazines I get and have saved.  :)

So here, goes.





These 4 were made at one of Tracy's card making parties (probably the November one, as we did not meet in Dec).  She is my SU dealer.  (hee hee)
