OWH Sketch #258

Here's my take on the OWH sketch #258 using a cute Penny Black image colored with Copics. I've already sent my final box to OWH, so this card will be heading to Cards for Hospitalized Kids. I took a picture of my final box of 238 cards, but somehow it's become a file that Windows can't open, so I'm unable to share it with you. Having OWH closing it's doors is definitely a bittersweet moment for me as I've enjoyed donating cards to our military tremendously.

I used as many bright colors as I could find to make this cheerful. The banners were made with snippets from a Recollections collection I've had since I made a Disney scrapbook for my DGD. I added another ribbon brad with a little snippet of orange ribbon just for fun. I left the sentiment off because the image will hopefully bring a smile to the recipient.

This is just adorable and yes it will bring a smile to someone's face for sure. WOW 238 cards in your last box. You have done an outstanding job at getting all those cards to our military for years and what few of them are left there will be missing something very special not receiving cards from you. Enjoy your evening and Sunday.

Great take on the sketch Carol! I love your brightly colored card! That dog is so dang cute riding his scooter and I know the kids will get a big kick out of it too. So yes, I think it will put a smile on their faces, as it has already made me smile from ear to ear! Hugs, Brenda

What a fun interpretation of the sketch! Love all those bright colors.

Also love that you will be making cards for kids. I'll be doing the same thing through Send a Smile 4 Kids.

So glad that we've become friends through OWH. Hope we stay in touch.

Thanks for playing along with this sketch challenge and for all you've done for OWH all these years.
