OWH Sketch 201

I'm still digging myself out from under boxes, but I've managed to create a space in my craft room where I can actually work. Here's where I am so far:

Even though there are still a few boxes around, it's workable. You can see floor and there are paths, so I'm good. :)

So I played yesterday's OWH sketch:

and I made this:

I actually made four of them, in an attempt to use up some Basic Grey papers. I would have made more, but there's that whole coloring thing that I do not like, so I limited myself. Next time I might paper piece them.

I used one of the new Hero Arts OWH stamp sets, and they are pretty cute critters. Perfect for making cards to send to kids.

I had a bit of trouble with my coloring - as always - so I went back over the bears with one of the markers and "flicked" in some "fur" in an attempt to hide the miserable coloring job. I also added Enamel Accents to the eyes, and flocking to their muzzles. You can kinda see that here:

In other news, Bobra has reclaimed his spot in my craft space. In the condo, I had a row of cabinets under a window, and he had his little spot on the end. In this house, I assumed (wrongly) that he liked that spot because of the windows, so I reclaimed the space for more flat surface for myself. Bobra had other ideas.

First, he claimed his space, in spite of what I had put there:

He is sitting on top of a piece of glitter paper. That cannot be comfortable. (Behind him is the remains of The Heaplet.)

So I gave in and put his blankie in his spot, and now he's all happy about it:

Yeah, he looks pretty content:

So now I need to change my plans for this space and slide everything down so I can actually cut a piece of card stock without poking him. The things we do for our furbabies.

I've made a few more cards, so I'll be back with some more posts. It feels great to be creating again!

Thanks for stopping by!

Products used: Basic Grey Granola 6x6 pad, Lil' Inker Instant Camera Die, SU 2-way glue pen, SU brown flocking powder, and the following:


  1. Your card is adorable. I'm glad to see that Bobra has found his favorite spot and he must be accommodated, of course.

  2. Ok, so get this.....your room is cleaner than mine!!! haha!! Seriously, you have an awesome room with so much storage! (that's hidden! hehe)

  3. I was away most of the day so only found this post tonight! I was sooo happy to get a peek into your craft room. It looks great and so does your very contented Bobra.

  4. Such a cute card. I love that you described your techniques, a great opportunity to learn something new. No mistakes there, just creative ideas! TFS!

  5. So cute! I just ordered this set and can't wait to receive it. And, I love the flocking on the muzzles!! I have some (somewhere) and think I've only used it once! Thanks for the idea :-)

  6. I came to your blog from clean&simple and was enjoying checking out past posts. This one made me smile! I too have a sweet kitty who supervises my crafting. Your furbaby is adorable.


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
