Thankfully the past weekend was much calmer than the end of the week. This allowed for time to make cards and watch basketball -- often at the same time!
OWH Sketch #113
Isn't it interesting how some cards are born so quickly -- almost effortlessly? Guess this week's sketch was really lucky #13 because this was one of those times.
The sketch inspired the Any Hero Card below. To use the digi sentiment, I rotated the design to make a horizontal card -- and I tweaked the smaller rectangular strip just a tad.

Fabric: leftover blue mesh, Canvas Corp burlap sheet jute; OWH digi
I was thrilled with the texture and dimension added by the mesh and jute! :)
This week's CAS-ual Friday challenge is to make a card with a pattern, an image, and a sentiment. And, I think this little lion card below fits the bill.
- Pattern: Croc Embossing
- Image: Paper-Pieced Lion
- Sentiment: "Have a ROARing Good Day!"

One Last Cupcake
Remember that adorable cupcake illustration by Elizabeth O. Dulemba? Well, it turned out that I printed and colored a 6-pack of those, the last of which was used on the card below. This card will be going to a colleague who has become a treasured mentor.
A Thank You for a Friend
On Friday, I mentioned that a friend at work had a surprised me with a great display rack to use for my card-making endeavors. As a little thank you, I put together a packet of cards for her.
