MelonHeadz Sisters, Ciera Jade & Little Boy With Puppy


I have a second blog post to share with you today!

I really wanted to get to the Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps sketch challenge #57 before it ended tomorrow. I went to bed last night thinking about the sketch and the images I wanted to use, so guess what I did this morning?!

I've also discovered a new (to me) digital stamp artist through Sandy at Operation Write Home and have future plans to feature her in an OWH Midweek Throwdown challenge.  Her name is Nikki,  her blog is called MelonHeadz, you really "need" to go check it out, Nikki's fun images are free.  And if you do visit and add some of her images to your digital stamp collection, please don't forget to leave a comment to say thank you.

The Sister's image is a MelonHeadz colored digital image, the round sentiment is by Dee's Bugaboo Boutique and was a freebie as well.  I don't have a sister but I thought these two digital images fit together well.  The papers I used are The Paper Mill Pink, Mohawk Color Copy 100lb Bright White, Via Vellum Basic Black, Fresh Flowers digital paper by My Time Made Easy.


Oops, I couldn't stop...  a second card using the sketch, basically the same colors, a new bible verse by Dee's Bugaboo Boutique & Ciera Jade by MelonHeadz.  I also used a Copic marker to fill in just a little on the sentiment RV11.



And then there's Nikki's little boy with a puppy I had to use too!  The papers are Basic Black, Mohawk Color Copy 100lb Bright White, Discount Cardstock's Royal Blue and a scrap of digital paper with stars on it.  I also used a Copic marker on the sentiment to tie things together B93. 

Okay I think I have this sketch out of my system for now, you know how I get!  All of my cards today will go to Operation Write Home for our troops to send home to their loved ones.

I hope you are having a blessed weekend, Happy Saturday!
