Happy Presidents' Day Weekend!

I have a much needed long weekend off from work- yahoo!  I am trying to do all of the challenges posted on OWH for the VCMP- the virtual card making party! Every 3 hours on Saturday and Sunday a new challenge is posted! I did not create on Saturday so today I grabbed some diet pepsi and joined in the fun! Check it out at:

#1. The first challenge: Erika wants us to make cards with chevrons, zig zags- or as we always called it-
rick-rack! Yup- a stamp from MFT!

#2. All Creatures Great and Small- cards for kids- is what Misty challenged us to do. I like the sentiment- Paola Nutini sings a song- I love you more and more- that Tessa and I sing to each other once in a while- so this sentiment really made me chuckle!

#3. Beth came up with a tough one...selective embossing. I luckily have some of the Tim Holtz diffusers but it was still that hardest challenge so far! Getting the embossing lined up straight- well- let's just say- this was not my first, second or even 3rd attempt! lol. I am not sure if you can see it in the photo- but the pink paper is embossed with flowers-with a circle in the center left un-embossed for the image and the sentiment!

#4. Yvonne was next with Things with Wings! Ahhh, back in my comfort zone! A simple image colored with copics, pretty paper and ribbon!

#5. And for the final challenge for Saturday Leslie came up with a good one...find a whole sheet of 12x12 paper and make it disappear by using all of it!  I am going to a 3 day crop/retreat in April and my BFF is coming this time...and she has not scrapped in years! The retreat is relaxing and fun; we are very well fed and can even get a full body massage- and Nancy is joining us this year! Nancy plans to relax, eat, socialize, read and...she only wants to help me with cards- no scrapping for her! My plan is to make card kits for her- so this challenge got me going on my kits! The 2nd picture shows everything ready to be assembled. So- I used all the paper- but the other 5 cards are not assembled yet!

I have a few more cards made from the Sunday challenges-- but I plan post them tomorrow. I hope to complete all of the challenges- as well as Marlene's Sunday sketch! Sunday is not complete without the OWH sketch!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
Take care and craft on,


  1. My my my but you've been busy! I struggled with the diffuser challenge, too, and will probably end up using my Tim Holtz diffusers instead of trying to make my own. *wipes brow*

    Thanks for playing my Disappearing Act challenge!!!

  2. I'm glad you kept trying! I love the colors on your card. Someone will love that for a birthday card. Thanks for joining the Selective Embossing challenge.

  3. Diane, your cards are great. And congrats on making it thru every challenge! I love the little girl you colored on the chevron card and the sentiment goes so well with her cute face. Thanks for playing along in my challenge!

  4. Another great batch of cared, thank 'moo' very much for playing!

    Thanks for playing along with my part of OWH VCMP.
