July ODBD Challenge

It's time for this month's challenge from Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD)
 at Operation Write Home (OWH).  For every 50 cardmakers each posting one card for the challenge, ODBD pays shipping for one box of 300+ cards to our heroes-- nice!!!

Thanks for taking a look!

VCMP Challenge #4

Since it's a Virtual Card Making Party for the Fourth of July, it just seems natural to make a birthday card in red, white, & blue.  It's a fun challenge, Lori, and here's my card:

 I used a set from Papertrey Ink called Butterfly Kisses, an oldie but goodie!

Thanks for taking a look!

VCMP Challenge #2

The Virtual Card Making Party (VCMP) at Operation Write Home (OWH) has so many great challenges-- I hope to take on as many as I can!  
This challenge was to make a thank you card using spray inks.  
Here's my card:

I stamped, flicked, and spritzed the spots of color around the embossed sentiment-- so much fun!

All supplies from Papertrey Ink, except for Zing embossing powder in rouge.

Thanks for looking!
