Sketch Challenge #124

Hello, cardmakers! Happy Sketch Day! Before we get to it, are you working on a box for the "Duty Honor Cards" Drive? Our shippers need those boxes to keep cards going out to our heroes all summer long!

Try using this sketch to make a few cards for that box...



We have two great sample cards to share this week, both from cardmaker Pam. She has a great blog called AirborneWife's Stamping Spot, and you should definitely check out to see more of her awesome work. I can't decide which of these two I like best, the candy or the clouds... they are both so adorable. Thanks so much for your help this week, Pam!





 

Off you go, folks, to figure out what you're going to put in the big box in this week's sketch. Be sure and come back here to show us your work, and visit the others that link up for more inspiration!

Featured Cardmaker: Veronica G., San Clemente, CA


Hello everyone! Are you ready for your Friday dose of inspiration? I have a wonderful group of cards to share with you that were created by this week's featured cardmaker Veronica. I know you will be as inspired by them as I am. Veronica, for whom English is a second language (I hope I've done an okay job with your answers Veronica), doesn't blog so I hope you will take a moment to leave her some love here at the end of this post so she will have a chance to know how much you like her cards.


How long have you been stamping? 
I've been scrapbooking for at least 12 yrs. About a one year ago, I think, I bought  a card magazine which is where I found out about about OWH. I checked it out on the computer and I was so excited and started sending in my cards. Of course now I am a so addicted… I love it… and I'm so thankful to our heroes.


Do you have a craft room or specific area where you stamp/craft? 
Since my son has moved out I now have my OWN craft room and I am so happy! I have my stamping table, room for all my papers (I loooove paper) and stamps, my cricut and embossing supplies.


What are your favorite stamp/craft products?
I went to a stamp show and fell in love with the stamps from La-La-Land. I love Marci! I also discovered (and love) The Stamps of Life by Stephanie Barnhard too.


Do you have a favorite technique?
My favorite technique is using the distress inks by Tim Holtz. I've also discovered Copic markers and love to color with them.


Are there colors you love to include on your cards?
When it comes to colors I think it depends on the card. I love reds, browns, purples and pinks. I love to stamp on beige cardstock and use it a lot.
How did you hear about Operation Write Home?  
I love to buy all the card magazines and I heard about OWH in one I read.


What motivates you to make cards for our heroes?
Mine is just a little part and it’s such a small thing to do what I do for them, when they do so much for us. How can we really ever say thank you? When I read about the children getting the cards from OWH and they have a little of their parents, moms or dads, saying I love you or I miss you it brings my heart great joy. And I always pray for all of them and their families.
