OWH Midweek Throwdown + Go-to Gals Scrappy Idea

Standard

The Midweek Throwdown this week at Operation Write Home is Tags ‘n Twine. I love tags. Tag dies were the first things that I bought when I got my original Sizzix. The timing of this throwdown was perfect – I’d just seen a new post on Paper Crafts Connection about a creative way to use pretty pieces of scrap paper.

Wausau Fleck Cardstock. Black from stash. DPs are My Minds Eye Best of Damask. Sentiment is Studio G in Memento Tuxedo Black. Twine is Pick Your Plum.

The midweek throwdown at Operation Write Home is to make a Sentiment Free card. It was hard. Most of my stamps involve sentiments – they’re my favorite kind of stamp.

I put forth an effort though. I’ll probably make this a thank you card when all is said and done.
