Seeing light at the end of the tunnel...........

The virtual cardmaking party at the Stars & Stamps blog has ended it's challenges, but I'm playing catch-up to finish them up! I have 2 more to go and I hope I can find time to get them done. Here are 3 more I just finished. This purple polar bear meets the challenge #14 Tammy gave us to "color me crazy." The idea is to color an image with non-traditional colors. I think I met the challenge easily with this............I don't think I've ever seen a purple polar bear :)
This card is for Lisa's #15 challenge to make a card with a play on words. I think this pretty much speaks for itself and needs no explanation. I actually USED some of my favorite all-time hoarded retired DP for this one! LOL
And this card meets Linda's challenge #13 to use "bears and hearts" on a card. I chose this cute Penny Black image for my bear and added a couple orange hearts to the sentiment panel.
If I can find time to finish up the remaining 2 challenge cards, I'll be back with them later. Be sure to check out the S&S post here where you can go place your vote for your favorite challenge card made during this virtual party. I'm not on Facebook, so I won't be voting, but hopefully you all can!
I wish you all a fantastic July 4th holiday!!
