I made the tag below for Christie's Christmas tag swap. It actually has a lot of texture IRL. Wreath stamp from OBP. This isn't for the church ladies. I have more cards and tags to share another day.

I had a lot of fun with the ATC. I used the stamps and stamps (ha!) from my OBP Vintage Ladies Limited Edition Kit. I paper pieced using lots of scrap papers and added OBP Strut Your Stuff sentiment. I finished her off with a little sparkle on the flowers in her hair and on her earrings via Stickles.

I can hardly wait to get my hands on the new OBP baby images. A couple months ago, Johanna asked if we had any image requests and I said a baby pram. Check this out. I'm so excited. It's exactly what I had in mind. I think it will be lots of fun putting different characters inside.

On the left, my niece talking on her zucchini phone. I swear we check our 3 zucchini plants daily but somehow this guy was missed. We had zucchini enchiladas for dinner tonight and I think there will be zucchini pancakes in the morning.

I used Flair Designs Holly Jolly Collection O Christmas Tree and Cardstock stickers with Odd Bird Planet Lacy Circle Medium.
On this one I used Flair Designs Holly Jolly Collection Holly Jolly Stripe paper with more Cardstock stickers and OBP Joy to the World sentiment.
Flair also has a new line of Christmas paper called Merry Little Christmas. I am in love with the Holly Berries paper.

I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and added the polka dot ribbon (we were allowed to add one embellishment to the kit) and then used my Fiskars Threading Water punch on the striped paper.

I dissected an envelope and then traced it onto a giant calendar page. Then, I stamped OBP You Rock, Little Crown, and Single Note randomly all over.
For the postage I used Alistair and Alma inside the Small Bracket Frame. I drew the wiggle lines over them to make them look like cancelled postage. Then, on the address, I stamped Max Rocker Owl.
It was a good experience to do something different than a card but I don't think mail art is my life's calling. :)

Do you ever have a card idea that makes you giggle to yourself? I do. Sadly, today is the final day of WSW. It was so much fun. I didn't get to do all the challenges (hello, there were like 3 dozen) but I was able to combine 3 challenges into one card: Mix it Up (using stamps from 3 different stamp companies), Opposites Attract (using opposite colors on the color wheel) and By the Sea.
- Surfer and Surfboards: TAC (The Angel Company)
- Sun: Stampin Up
- Chicks Dig Me: justjohanna's Odd Bird Planet

I like taking Christmas stamps and adapting them for year-round. Here, I used OBP Partrige in a Pear Tree with a cut out of a pear from Daisy Ds wonderland paper. I used glossy stuff on all the pears to make them stick out and to coordinate. A little lime green ribbon, doodled lines and some sparkle. Done.
