Paper Smooches Swanky Snow Dudes

Welcome to our Operation Write Home World Card Making Day blog hop!

Our theme is winter cards and use a sketch, not just Operation Write Home sketches but any sketch or sketches you'd like to use.  How fun, I LOVE sketches!

I've made several cards for our hop featuring the Paper Smooches stamp set Swanky Snow Dudes -


My first card uses the Splitcoaststampers sketch #403, 
I love the simplicity of this layout and found I couldn't stop making cards with it for awhile...  


My next card uses a sketch from Splitcoaststampers Clean & Simple #189 challenge.


My last card uses Operation Write Home sketch #59.


It's a nice go to sketch when you have a large image or would like to create a scene.


I hope you are enjoying our OWH World Card Making Day blog hop, thanks for visiting my blog today!

Is it weird that I hear the sentiment in a voice from Bill & Ted? Love these snow dudes!

Great group of cards Jan! I've noticed that SCS sketch in your cards lately and it's great. I'm going to add it to my sketch collection. What an adorable stamp set too... just when I swore I would stop buying stamps. ;)

JoAnn Ross said...

These are too cool for school!! I LOVE the set, what you did with them, and thanks for the splitcoast stamper's sketches! I signed up a while back, but with writing full time and dealing with Sweetie's Parkinson's issues, I never have any time to visit there.

I'm especially going to use that first one. And OWH #59 is my go-to for larger images, too.

Super, super cards that made me smile!
