You Make the Grade!

A super simple treat bag for you all to enjoy this evening.  I used the awesome Oval Treat Bag Topper from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons for this project-- super easy peasy.  I used some wild paper so I did leave off the strip that comes with the cut as it covered up a bit too much of the crazy paper!  I think a few of these will be in order for my co-workers-- perhaps with a Halloween or Fallish twist as I find more time to be creative!  I will be entering this in the PPPR Back to School Challenge!  Definitely think this would be FAB with an orange treat bag and black and lime green for the topper.... I better hit the craft store to get some bags!

Sketch Challenge #189

Hello friends!  Hope all of you are having a great Sunday.  I can't believe football started already--so crazy!  Yikes that means winter is just right around the corner :)  I do love that Sundays mean a new sketch over at Operation Write Home and this sketch was awesome.  I was still in a Unity mood so picked out some papers and pulled out a super neglected stamp set!  I kinda really like how this turned out!  Enjoy!

Ahhhh Unity Stamp Company how I love thee!  I was so inspired by the awesome blog hop between Unity Stamp Company and Operation Write Home I had to pull out my stamps and make a couple of cards!  It would be awesome if you needed to pick up some awesome Unity Stamps this week as they will be donating a portion of the sales to OWH-- how awesome!!

A little OWH love!

Oh how I wish weekends were 5 days and the work week was 2!  Alas another weekend has come and gone and of course I had a great one!  Here's hoping this week continues to go as well... a migraine has had me down and out for most of the I guess tomorrow will be a great day :) Fingers crossed!

Had a little bit of time this weekend to create some card along with some other awesome crafters at Operation Write Home.  This weekend OWH had a fabulous blog Virtual Card Making Party.  I was able to sneak in a couple of the challenges.  Will definitely try to create some more!

My first card was for challenge #1 which was a sketch challenge found here

And this card was for challenge #2 found here and it was all about "OWH" so I used white....OLD paper and of course my sentiment is full of H's!
