OWH Sketch Challenge #109... Hugs & Kisses

What a fun sketch that is for the OWH Sketch Challenge this week.

I made one card.. that after making it.. let's just say that I did not like it at all.. not even a little tiny bit.. none. So I thougth I'd make something else.. I dug through my Hero Arts stamps and realized that the XO set that I bought when I bought the Operation Write Home Hero Arts stamps had never been inked up... so I decided to use it.

I need more practice stamping repetitive things.. not as easy as I thought it would be.

My friend Neva from Ohio recently sent me a huge box of goodies.. trinkets, stickers,,, you name it and it was probably in that box! I found this red heart and put some white card stock under it.. I knew that black would show through better.. but didn't think that black on a heart was a good thing, so I stuck with the white.

Here is the sketch I used on this card:

thanks for looking ~

have a great airborne day!

God Bless All Our Military.. each and every one of them

Pam, great card. I love it. Nice and colorful. That heart is beautiful. I think your XOs came out fine. I know I would be very happy if I received this one.

Great card, Pam! Makes me want to get those stamps, lol! Heart trinket turned out really cute, too. Thanks for joining us in this week's OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge!

It is beautiful, Pam. I definitely have to CASE it. I haven't done much repetitive stamping either so I need to practice. I have that stamp and it looks like a good one to start with.

This card is just so simple and focused. The entire card says "I love you" and I love it ;)
