I chose to create a card using OWH sketch number #101. Here's what I came up with.
Happy Day card by Kim Watson
"I made this card using Little Sport collection. I flipped the original design vertically and followed the basic design. The amazing thing about the background is that it is actually one of the NEW lines Fancy Pants released at the last CHA, 4x6 Brag Pads. They are little booklets filled with different card designs perfect for scrapbooking pages and cards alike.The result is a fast  card  which is masculine & fun too."

  34. Am loving banners, and am now inspired to try using this sketch, too. The set you used is wonderful and I agree, masculine and still fun, not stodgy. As a Mom of three boys, I'm always trying to find papers that I can use for them. Thanks for supporting OWH!

  39. There is so much going on (and so much to love about this card). I love the combination of patterned papers and the hand stitching. But I think my favorite part is the way you used the tag (with a file folder label) to place your sentiment on. Really clever! Thanks for hopping along with us and for the chance to win some Fancy Pants goodies.

  64. Love the sewing on your card. I wish I could get motivated to get my machine out. Space is a major issue so I don't do it because I just have to put it away again!

    Hope I still qualify for the drawing - it's 10.7.12 at 8:45 EST, but for some reason it says that it's 10/8.
