OWH Sketch Challenge #182

Thursday, July 25, 2013

For the second time this summer, I've shut down my craft room to take a vacation trip.  This time my daughter and I did an Alaska cruise, with sightseeing and geocaching.  It was her first trip to Alaska and she plain ole wore me out, trying to see and do as much as possible!  So now we're back home and I'm ready to get back into card making mode.

I always seem to get "writer's block" when I sit down at my craft table after a break.  This time I decided to warm up with the latest sketch from Operation Write Home:

The colors look a little dark in this photo.  The card base is actually Lavender Lace from Stampin Up, which is a lighter, softer color.

My little dog is sitting right next to my chair, "helping."  Now and then she will beg to sit on my lap, and she shows a lot of interest in my messy craft table.  I swear, if she had opposable thumbs, she'd be making cards too!
