More OWH VCMP challenge cards (whew!)


I'm still at it here, trying to wrap up the VCMP over at the Stars and Stamps blog in celebration of their 2nd anniversary. This is challenge #11 to "keep it clean" and Jen is hosting this challenge on her blog The Sparkle Within. The challenge is basically to make a CAS card. I used random leftover strips of card stock and adhered them to a scrap piece of card stock and simply added ribbon and a sentiment. Easy peasy, and makes great use of those leftover scraps. I made 2 for this challenge.
This is for challenge #12 Daddy's Child - to make a card for Daddy to send home to the children. This challenge is being hosted by Tami over on Tami's Craft Connection. I used a Greeting Farm image and computer generated the sentiment for this entry.
This is for challenge #14 Cold Temps, Warm Heart - to make a winter love card. This challenge is being hosted by Theresa over on Playing with Pictures and Paper. I had this image colored for a long time, and just added an embossed background and a snowflake brad.
And this is Ciara's 9-11 challenge to make a card with a dog. Sandy over at A Colorful World is hosting this challenge and there's a sad, touching story about a dog that you'll want to read by clicking the challenge link. I used a free digi that Sandy made, and colored it with Copics, adding a few scraps of remnant DP.
There are still a few more challenges to complete, and I don't know that I'll have time to complete them all, but even if I don't - it's been fun with all the new challenges!
Thanks for stopping by and I wish you all a great Tuesday!

Hi Carol, I'm back and I'm not a stalker I promise. Sandy just sent me a new code for the inlinkz and it is working. Yay, I'm so excited. If you don't mind would you come back again and try to post your sweet card? Thank you if you can but it's ok too if you don't want to fool w/ it.
