July 4th VCMP Part 1

This past weekend, OWH had a Virtual Card Making Party to celebrate Independence Day.  I wasn't able to play along at the time, but I wrote down all the challenges and have gotten started on them in no particular order.

After taking Sandy's coloring class at Queen's Ink about two weeks ago, I'm really trying to color a bit more and amp up that part of my card making.  That's why I chose the winter kids images to use on those cards.

Challenge 15 (Love/Furry Creatures): This one was just scraps sitting on my desk, nothing fabulous.  

Challenge 6 (Two winter cards, one with a traditional Christmas color scheme and one with other colors):  

Challenge 18 (Sunday Sketch): OK, I modified it a bit!  

Challenge 16 (Teen card without teen stamps): I know my middle school students are obsessed with duct tape and so I used patterned washi tapes with a modern sentiment.

 Just 14 challenges to go! 
Cards shipped to OWH in 2014: 21
Cards shipped to OWH in 2013: 829 blank and 301 AnyHero
Cards shipped to OWH in 2012: 1284 blank and 218 AnyHero
Cards shipped to OWH in 2011: 1695

  1. Welcome back and thanks for sharing. Love the pop of the Teen card!

  2. Love, love, love the "duct tape" idea for my Teen Time challenge. I'm looking at your numbers of cards shipped to OWH and my brain is reeling. WOW!! Can't wait to see what else you come up with as you work your way through the challenges.

  3. Cute furry creature card! Thanks for taking my challenge at the Virtual cardmaking party--it was a blast!
