Hey all! I have moved, and finally got unpacked, and have been working really hard to make some card kits for an OWH Card Making Event in Portland, Oregon on September 14th. While in the midst of making all these card kits, Operation Write Home hosted their annual Labor Day Virtual Card Making Party, complete with 10 challenges:

Challenge #1: Winter theme with a sketch challenge.

Challenge #2: "O"- circle, one. "W"- witch, "wicked". "H"- Halloween theme. OWH Sketch #14.

Challenge #3: Triple Die Cutting Technique.
Challenge #4: OWH Sketch #29, Love theme.

Challenge #5: Masking Tape Block Stamping Technique.

Challenge #6: Regularly scheduled OWH Sunday Sketch, #188.

Challenge #7: This one is based on a tic tac toe board. I chose stamping/coloring, punny sentiment, and things with 4 legs. OWH Sketch #41.

Challenge #8: Leaf motif with fall colors.

Challenge #9: One or more bees with bee sentiment. OWH Sketch #15.

Challenge #10: Negative from a die or punch. See the spiders punched out of the black strip. OWH Sketch #35.
And there you go! Each of these is the prototype for a set of ten cards to be assembled at the card making event next Saturday. All except for #3, which is just 1 card. I will be back to post more of my cards soon, now that I am back into a rhythm.
