Good evening peeps! Today is Veteran's Day and I want to say "Thank You" to all our veterans for your service. Whether you're in active duty or not, whether you are still with us or not, your service to America is greatly appreciated!
Today's also been one of those blaaahh days. You know what I'm talkin about... you know you should be doing 10,000 things and nothing gets done. Well not quite, because I got two, make that three, cards made. This first one of for the Member Challenge over at CardSwaps. Teresa came up with a sketch for us to follow and I really like it a lot.
This next card is for the Midweek Throwdown over at Operation Write Home's blog, Stars & Stamps. I also used a Bonus Sketch that OWH posted a little while ago. Since it's Sunday I'll mention that I'm a Convert. Yep, I used to make a card willy nilly, but then started playing with sketches. I've seen the light and been converted. Now it seems I have a hard time making a card without a sketch. The MWT call was for red, white, and blue on our cards.
I'll put this in my next OWH box as an "Any Hero" card. While I was at it I decided to do one in off white as well. You know what they say about hindsight having 20/20 vision... yeah if I had a do over I'd have distressed the edges with some color. I chose not to use embellishments but I'm not sure that was a good idea.
