Operation Write Home

A new Operation Write Home Sketch challenge #185 is up today! I don't think I have missed a Sunday sketch challenge all summer! 
Here is the sketch:


The image is from Some Odd Girl.   It is called Squeezey Hugs. The image was cropped but in the original image they are standing. 

I colored up this image monochromatically using Copic markers in the following colors: C1,3,5,7. The paper is from My Mind's Eye~ In Bloom. The sentiment comes from Hero Arts Clear Stamp Set. I have been stalking the local craft stores waiting to get my hands on the Operation Write Home set. And I found it! There was just one and I snatched it up so quickly! I may have done a little happy dance, too!  Hero Arts donates 25% of the profits of this set to OWH. I so love OWH! 
The sentiment reads: xoxo hugs+kisses
Happy August to you all! I am off to grocery shop! I know...exciting! No plans today other than that! I hope you all have a great and relaxing Sunday, my friends! 

I am going to enter this creation in the following challenges:



  1. Such a sweet card! I like that you gave the image the monochromatic look; it goes very well with that paper pad.

  2. I love your card and monochromatic coloring! I haven't tried it yet. Your card gives me inspiration to give it a whirl. TFS

  3. The pink is a great, subtle accent color for your monochromatic card - love it!!!

  4. Great choice of colors, especially the touch of pink. Beautiful coloring too!

  5. Hi, thankyou for sharing your gorgeous card with us at The Craft Place! Good Luck and hope to see you again soon.
