OWH Challenges & Heidi's July Calendar Page


Here's Heidi's cute calendar page for July! Don't you just love that cute cow and little boy image that's been fussy cut and popped up on foam tape? This reminds me of a good old country fair in July with the red, white & blue quilt with stars in the background and the cow representing a 4H entry! Great job on this month again Heidi, and thanks for the gift that keeps giving all year long!


Here's this weeks mid-week throwdown card for OWH Stars & Stamps which is a color challenge of kraft, red, white, & blue. The sentiment is from CASual Friday stamps stamped with PTI enchanted evening, and the frame was done with SB square dies. Embossing was done with a Hero Arts/Sizzix ef, the bricked pattern border was done with an EK punch, while the little stars were done with a SU! punch, and the large star was done with punch-bunch.


Here's my card for this week's OWH Stars and Stamps sketch challenge #179.
I used some assorted dsp's from my scrap pile, along with some cream, blue and wine-colored card stock scraps. The sentiment was done with 2 SU! sets - Label Love & a Round Array and 2 SU! punches - the Artisan Label & 7/8" scalloped circle. Ribbon by Pizzazz Aplenty, glittered brads from Glitterazzi.

That's going to be it for me today, but as always, I thank you for stopping by!
Have a super Wednesday!

Another great calendar month! Love that little boy and cow image - too cute - and it really does remind you of a good old county fair!

Both of your cards are wonderful! Love that first one with the Kraft and that yummy embossing folder you used in the background.
Great design on both of these!

I just love your card for this week's OWH sketch. The punched strips add such a beautiful design to your card. I decided to make a patriotic thank you card as well for my take on the sketch. Thank you for the wonderful inspiration!
