Happy Tuesday, everyone! I hope everyone is having a good week. So far, so good here. We're getting lots of rain and wind. I'm choosing to think of it as Spring, not winter. It makes it seem a little brighter. After all, I'm not driving to work in the dark anymore!

This week's Midweek Throwdown at Operation Write Home http://www.operationwritehome.org/index.html is "Get Creative with Ribbon." Here's my card:

I've been practicing with my Bow-Easy the last couple of days. The directions that came with it weren't all that helpful, so I looked up a tutorial on youtube. I love youtube! You can find so many helpful videos on so many crafty things. The stamp is from DeNami and I colored with with Copics. I adore their little chickies. The flower and leave have Crystal Effects on them that don't show up in the picture. I'm thinking it still needs a little more. I'm going to try adding my "hey chickie" sentiment below the bow. Hubby said it should go in the upper right corner. I explained to him about focal points and how that distracts from the real focal point of the card. He just kind of rolled his eyes lol.

This also goes with last week's Throwdown, which I thought was really this week's about using dots, or was it polka dots. Don't you hate it when you get behind?

Here's another card I did this past weekend while hanging out with my STD's:
All of the stamps are DeNami. I colored it with Copics used some Crystal Effects on the plane to make it pop. It needed something to make it shine a little more. There are 16 of these headed over to Sandy in a couple of weeks for OWH.

That's it for now. Thanks for stopping by!



  1. Oh, these are just too cute!! Always love finding cards using our chickie stamps!

    We'd love to have you join us sometime in the DeNami Blog Hops or challenges! :)

  2. How "tweet"! These are great cards for OWH! I love the hey chickie sentiment, but I'd probably add it to the lower right corner.

    I wanted you to know that you are the winner of my blog candy from the OWH Bunny Hop at Stamping With Grandma Lee. Congrats! Send me an email at grandma_lee_t AT yahoo DOT com with your mailing address, so I can get your goodies out to you. Thanks again for all that you do for OWH!
