OWH Sketch #248

I ended up making two cards from this great sketch inspired by Coni; it can be found here.  The  first card features the Whimsy Stamps balloon die in place of the circles and a sentiment from a dollar bin.  The string is actually upholstery thread as it is thicker than normal thread but not as thick as twine. 

The second card features a Stamps of Life sentiment and some orphaned stamps as well as a watercolor background.  I thought I would add a few Mom cards to my OWH box as the deadline will be here before I know it.



  1. Two fun cards. Love the background on your second card. It reminds me of pretty flowers which works well with your flowers you added. The balloons mixed with the stars makes a nice combo. Enjoy your day.

  2. Hi Linda! Love your cheery bunch of balloons and how you put the larger circles into your artistic background on the second card! Grreat!

  3. Congrats on making 2 wonderful cards! This sketch has me completely baffled and I don't know where to start! LOL

  4. These are great cards and I like your creativity with switching the balloons into circles!

  5. Linda,

    Love both interpretations! How clever to think of balloons in place of all those circles. :)

    Thanks so much for playing along with Sketch #248!
