OWH Sketch 144

Here's my card for OWH Stars and Stamps challenge #144.


I'm using a sentiment by Impression Obsession, dsp from Kaiser, and red and black card stock. I used a SU! fancy fan ef, and a jewel tag punch with a silver heart brad on the corner.

I had to make this one quick and easy, as we're preparing for a direct hit from hurricane Sandy here on the east coast. We live about a 2 hour drive from the shore resorts along the New Jersey coast, and since this storm is nearly 800 miles wide, we know we're in for some wicked weather for the next several days. There's still lots to do, but I couldn't let a Sunday go by without getting my sketch card done! If I don't get around to answering emails, commenting or posting in the next few days or so, you'll know it's most likely because we've lost power with the high winds and driving rain that's on the way. They're saying we may be faced with tornadoes and snow too! It's gonna be a wild start to a new week, that's for sure!!

Wishing all of you who live on the east coast safety in this coming storm! Thanks for stopping by and have a great week ahead!

I took a break from storm prep for some craftiness today too... I think it helps us keep our sanity. {grin} Nice take on the sketch - love the patterns and texture. Stay safe and hunker down!

What a perfect OWH card, Carol.

I'm hoping for the best for all of you on the east coast. I'm praying that everyone is safe and sound. Sure hope you don't lose power, either.

Stay safe, my friend.

This is so cool, Carol! I just love the tiny tag with the heart! Hubby is pacing which is driving me crazy. Prep is done, but gosh, I am sick of the reports changing. Stay safe, my friend!

Oh, wow. That is amazing dedication! I love the color, the embossing, and the sentiment is so special! My agent lives across the river in NJ, her assistant, my editor, and many other publishing friends are in NYC, and I have friends all up the coast. Thoughts and prayers with you all! Hunker down and stay safe!
