OWH Fourth of July Virtual Cardmaking Challenge

I haven't entered any challenges before and decided to try a few from OWH Fourth of July Virtual Cardmaking Challenge. I have spent the past 2 days making cards because you can't just make one card per design. My shipper will be happy when the box finally gets packed up and sent next week. There are a few more challenges I would like to do but no more time today. I did complete 9 challenges out of the 16 so I did OK. A few more ideas are still churning in my head for more cards based on the challenges I didn't do, like Sandy's 2 season challenge. Plus I did 3 cards for one challenge (Scrappin Bears!, which is my new favorite blog). Thanks for the challenge. It was fun thought my hubby wondered what I was doing all day. (Hey, I made meals and did some laundry between card making.) Plus I had to start a blog so I could do the linky thing, always something new to learn.

Thanks for looking at my cards!!

Two versions of the Challenge #9 Easy as 1, 2, 3. I started with the yellow flowers and had more images so I used the pink gingham paper.

I used the photo from the blog to made this card for Challenge # 8. Stars and Stripes paper with the photo and the sentiment, which I popped up the word Heart in red.


Challenge #2 Underwater. I hand-cut the fish bowl and used the shiny paper Blue Bubbles by Hot Off the Press for the water. I used Ranger's Liquid Pearls for the heart.

Challenge #6 Howl at the moon. Just stars and the moon in this card.

Challenge #15 at Stamping with a Mission. I found this cute sheep at Melonheadz and had to use for the card. The sentiment is from Jillian Vance set of stamps.

Challenge #5 Vintage at Holley's Hobbies was a challenge for me as I don't do a lot in vintage. 

Challenge #4 at Our Little Inspirations. A simple card with papers from Paper Studio and a couple of digi stamps. By the way, the hubby helped with the coloring of the digi eagle.

Here's another entry for Challenge # 13 at Sprappin Bears. Love this little sailor bear digi from MelJen.

For Challenge #16 at Mouseprint Creations, I did this simple digi stamp card. 

Here's another entry for Challenge # 13 at Sprappin Bears. Yup, I love bears too, although this card is looking at bears in a slightly different way. Elvis is another Melonheadz digi stamps with my sentiment.


  1. Loving every single one of your cards. :) What you did with the Americana front porch card is just gorgeous! Thank you for sharing all of these. I had a great time with this party and I hope that you did too!

  2. You've been a busy bee making all of these wonderful cards!! I think they're all great, and I had to laugh as we both took the same idea for the photo inspiration card - sentiment and all :)
