OWH sketch 156 - miss your face

Hi there!

I am kind of bummed today. I was just rejected from my first design team application. I know, I know, only a few get chosen. I'm going to try again, though! Onward and upward! :)

Anyhow, it's sketch day over at Operation Write Home. It's FRIGID here, so my eldest had her swimming lesson at the Y and then we came home and unpacked from the lake and Mommy made cards. :) This is sketch 156.

First I made this one.

Basic Grey Kioshi dp
Unity Stamp co "classic beauty" itty bitty
Unity Stamp co sentiment
Pearls from stash

I wasn't super excited about it (and I swear it's not crooked. I must've set it into the frog crooked!) So then I made this one:
Cosmo Cricket material girl dp
Unity Stamp Co KOM dress stamp and sentiment
And that one feels like it's missing something, too. I'm going to try again later! Thanks for looking, peeps!
(Don't forget the stuff for sale page up there ^^^, I added MORE stuff and free shipping for 2+ items to my OWH friends.) :)



  1. Very nice! My cards tend to look crooked too, I think I get too close with my camera. Or that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it! Good luck with your next design team application!

  2. I think both your cards are great. The second one is quite funny with the sentiment.

  3. Two very nice cards. I like the DP in both of your cards. The sentiment on your second card put a smile on my face. My pictures seem crooked too. Must be my camera - lol.

    Wishing you the best on getting on a design team -- I am sure it will come your way. I admire your efforts -- I have thought about trying that but feel I need some more growth in my skill level before I tackle trying to be on a design team.

  4. I miss your face - now that's a sentiment you don't see very often, but I like it! Better luck next time on your DT applications :)

  5. I like those dress forms, cute card. Sorry about the DT, I've tried a few times, too, and no luck.

  6. Both of those cards are great. I'm sorry about not getting on the DT you tried for. Keep trying! I wish you the best of luck.

  7. I love your images! And don't worry about those rejects...just try again...your cards are great! Hang in there!

  8. Love the miss your face card...the sentiment ties in so nice colorwise and theme...keep your chin up on the application process.

  9. great cards, stampsm papers and colors! The sentiment on the 2nd one is perfect! So sorry about the DT...but glad you post on OWH as I really enjoy your cards!

  10. That design team has lost out on a very creative person with much to offer. The tongue in cheek humor of the image and sentiment made me giggle!!!

  11. Fantastic cards Jen. Love your choice of papers to go with your images. Love them both, but the 'miss your face' card is my fave. Thanks for playing!

    Keep trying for a DT. You're a creatively talented lady who would be an asset to any team.

  12. Both cards are really cute! I love the sentiment on the second one too! Very funny! So sorry about the DT -- You will get there with great cards like this!


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
