OWH VCMP 5, 6, 7, and a Bonus!

      Let me first apologize for this lengthy post.  I do want to get all of the challenges entered on time.  Since I am on grand baby watch, I do not like leaving loose ends.  It was a fun weekend of making cards and being a rebel!

 
     Here is card #5, which follows this weeks sketch # 171 on the Stars and Stamp Blog.  I decided to do a children's birthday card, and created a clown with punches.  My sentiment is from Scrappy Cat, and my designer papers are from Bo Bunny's Surprise pad. 

 
     Here is the sketch we are following.

 
      Card #6 is brought to us by Julie.  We are asked to create a card using a photo that we took, ourselves.  I used one of my grand-puppy, Herbie, when he was a bit younger.  My sentiment is one that I won from Great Impressions.  All of my papers are scraps (yay!), and a button/flower embellishment from K&Co. finished it off.

 
     Card #7 brings us the challenge to create a "Summertime" card.  Thanks, JoAnn!  You gave me the drive to pull out some stamps that have not seen the light of my desk, for a long time!  I found some paper in my bin that reminded me of a pool liner.  Woo hoo! My lady floating on a raft, is from Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers.  I Distress Inked the background, added some water ripples with an unknown stamp, and added touches of Copic marker and white gel pen.  The sentiment is from Stampa Rosa.

 
      Just when I thought I had completed the challenges, Sandy came back with a BONUS!  It is to create a card with Google Eyes!  Well, here is what I came up with.  It uses a digital image, which is unknown, a computer generated sentiment, which ends on the inside with "Blow Bubbles".  The papers are all from my scrap bin.  (More used up pieces).  I did add stickles to the bubbles, but it is sealed in with Glossy Accents.

     Thanks for all of the fun and inspiration!   Had a blast.  Not quite sure what my editing program decided to do on some of the photos, but the black bar will not go away.

ALL are great! I love the picture of Herbie - too cute. I really can't pick a favorite out of all these - but would probably go with the "floating by"! TOO cute - and looks like something I wish I was doing right now!
