One Sketch, Two Cards

OWH Sketch 244

I'm here today with two cards inspired by Operation Write Home Sketch 244.
The first card is inspired by the current Shopping Our Stash challenge to make a card that features the primary color red. Okay, all the Christmas cards are in the mail, and the Valentine/Love cards have already been sent to Sandy at Operation Write Home in order to make the December 31 deadline. So, in spite of the fact that most linked cards will feature holiday red images, I've made an Any Hero card for Operation Write Home.   :)

OWH Sketch #244
Bo Bunny anthem; DCWV la crème stack
Stamper's Best sentiment (and inking) in Distress Ink black soot
Marvy and Paper Shaper circle punches; Nestabilities scallop circle die
Paper Studio star punch and brads
Really Reasonable Ribbon ribbon
adhesives: Ranger mulit-medium, Recollections foam squares

The second card is also for Operation Write Home. Missing You is one of the most commonly requested OWH sentiments/themes. So, I used Sketch 244 as the inspiration for this Missing U card -- although my banner is just a tad longer than the sketch banner. After all, there are 25 letters that needed to make their way onto the top part of that banner!

OWH Sketch #244
MME breeze; Distress Ink scattered straw; Recollections black, Stampin' Up! gray
computer-generated text; sponging in Distress Ink black soot
Nestabilities Spellbinder scallop circle die; Marvy circle punch
SU owl builder punch for three tiny circles
adhesives: Glossy Accents, Recollections foam squares
Really Reasonable Ribbon ribbon
Parting Thoughts

 The December 21st Words 2 Scrap By challenge is fast approaching. This month's words are Eat, Drink, and Be Merry, and there are a couple of MFT stamp sets included in our prize package! December is such a crazy month, but we hope you will find a little time to join us for this month's challenge.

I still need to make that Christmas card for Dad's stocking. And, I'd like to make a pet sympathy card for my aunt.

 Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
