Sketch Challenge # 226/Operation Write Home


Happy Sketch Sunday everyone! 

Every Sunday Operation Write Home posts a sketch challenge for everyone to play along with. Here is today's sketch:

You can find details about the sketch here:

I created today's card using papers from two My Minds Eye 6x6 paper pads (The Sweetest Thing Tangerine & On The Bright Side-Two).  

The hearts were cut with Cricut's "Doodlecharms" cartridge, I distressed the edges using Fun Stampers Journey ink in "Harvest Delight",  added some brass look brads in the corners, and added a couple cross stitches. 

The sentiment is from Stampabilities. 

This card came together easily because I had just used some of the same elements to create this card (the Cricut, the stamp):

The lighting was a little off because it was photographed on a white background (too early in the morning perhaps??).  Lindsay, The Frugal Crafter, recently posted a video on using up thread scraps and I had to try it.  Here is a link to the video:


I used several different kinds of thread (DMC, Omega, "craft floss") and this gave it some really cool texture, and it used up some little bits.  

Thank you for stopping by!
