Quick and easy sketch

OK, so last week's sketch challenge over at Operation Write Home blog Stars and Stamps was so quick and easy I got a little carried away.  I tend to go overboard with the Clean and Simple when doing cards for OWH, not necessarily because of the extra postage (though that can be a factor especially during the holidays), but also because I've found if I put too much on a card it's difficult to fit it into the envelope.  So, I hope they're not too simple.

Also, we've reached the deadline for sending 'Christmas' cards but have been encouraged to send 'Winter' cards, so here's another, using an image from an old retired set from Stampin' Up called Holiday Woodcuts.  The sentiment from the next one is from Skipping Stones Design set called Sassy Snow.

Well, I'd better get busy and get some housework done so I don't feel so guilty playing in my craft room!


  1. Barb, great job on both cards!!! They're so pretty! And I really love blue Christmas cards! Always has looked pretty to me!

  2. These are definitely NOT too simple but just perfect for OWH! LOVE that you are considerate and thinking about the postage! Both are CUTE! LOVE the Santa and the Snowman!
