OWH Skip - Let's Start the Weekend!

Hello Everyone,

If you came here from Kate's great blog you are in the right place. If you just happened upon this blog you will want to start at the beginning of the OWH Skip here. 

I am using the Hero Arts OWH stamp set called All The Time (CL584) and the OWH Sketch 98.
This set has two great clock images and several sentiments that are perfect of our heroes cards.

Sketch #98

OWH is giving away one of each of the Hero Arts stamp sets, and the 3 winners will be picked from all comments on all the blogs in the skip - the more blogs you comment on, the more entries you have! Winners will be drawn Sunday night.So be sure to visit all the blogs to increase your chances.

The next stop is the amazing Samantha.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you find some great inspiration for card making this weekend. If you are new to Operation Write Home and want more information just click here.

Marianne

Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.

Marianne,

Wonderful card! Great idea placing the sentiment in the circle instead of the clock face and using portions of the clock face in the squares.

I picked up the "All the Time" set at my local stamp store and will have to find the time to play with it.

Thanks for the inspiration.

This is lovely! Very vintage... Love that!

AllisonG said...

I love the way you offset the clocks in different parts of each block. Another great sentiment, too! These are just fantastic sets - no wonder, they were designed just for us OWH'ers so the sentiments and images are like no others. :-)
