OWH challenges

All in all there were 16 separate challenges for the OWH Virtual card making party!  It's been a busy couple of days!

Here's what I have completed:

Challenge 5 - vintage hosted by Holley's Hobbies

Challenge 7 - Subway Art - summer memories hosted by Essence of Paper

I was so busy trying to figure out what "subway art"style  is, that I forgot the "summer memories" part of the challenge.  This was definitely a new style for me.  And me being me, I didn't do it quite like Marti explained it.  I googled for some additional ideas, found mention of this idea and went with it!

Challenge 8 Photo Inspiration hosted by Scrappily Ever After

Challenge 9 - Easy as 1, 2, 3 hosted by Thinking of Inking

It wasn't easy.  I ended up asking my daughter to pick out 2 stamps and the sentiment because it was beyond me to do so today!  Of course as soon as she gave me the stamps, I came up with a couple of other great ideas!  I may try them at a later date!

Challenge 10 - 2 cards, 1 stamp hosted by It's a colourful world

As soon as I saw this challenge, I knew exactly which stamp I was going to use to create 2 seasons!  A couple of years ago when Hero Arts released this stamp they had a blog hop.  Tim (Holtz) used it and created a card for each season!  I LOVED it then, I LOVE it now!

Challenge 11 - Pinwheels hosted by Hello From Kate

This is not a very good photo - I will retake it in the morning.
This was another new technique! It was fun and quick! I will probably make more of these!

Challenge 13 was mine!  If you didn't see my challenge post, click here to see it!

That's all I managed to finish today.  All in all I made 12 cards (not counting my 2 samples I made for my challenge!)  I have a couple of others in various stages of completion and ideas for a couple of others.  We will see how tomorrow goes and how many I get done!

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you are having a fantastic weekend!


PS - If you have any questions about the products I used, let me know.  I will try to get the list posted tomorrow sometime.
