OWH Sketch # 158

Do you ever have one of those days??  Today I'm having one ... EVERYTHING has just fallen into place today in my creative life. It's just one of those amazingly sunny days. (not literally ... so cold and dreary today I can't even describe it) A HUGE thank you goes out to Operation Write Home. Another sketch challenge to the rescue. Where would I be without you??


I needed just one  more idea for some cards I'm making with the new CLAIRE paper pack from CTMH. The goal was to make a birthday card. Oh well, I rarely reach my goals without some adjustments.
Here's the sketch. It's flipped diagonally. If you aren't an orange lover I get it, but on chilly winter days this bright stuff can really bring a smile to your face. Thank you for stopping by for a peek.

  6. I'm not an orange lover at all, but it's the perfect color for your cheery card! I love how you put the sentiment on the cloud. And the addition of the bright sun is a wonderful finishing touch on your card.
