Hi, my first blog post in a couple of months because I moved from Michigan to North Carolina.  My craft room is mostly organized and unpacked.  I had to hunt for my embossing gun in several boxes to do the first card but I found it.

Make a card with a scripture or uplifting sentiment.  I think it came out really pretty.  I have enough of the background that I can make 5 more after this VCMP is over.

Make a card with 1 image, 2 patterned papers, 3 word sentiment

I used one of the images I colored after I got my craft room packed up.  I wanted to have something I could work on when I needed a break so I kept some images and colored pencils and Copics where I could use them.  It is a Bugaboo image.

Snowflake card but not Christmas

I tried embossing vellum in my cuttlebug folder.  I really like the way it turned out.

Triple time stamping.  I actually made 4 cards.  I was experimenting with the distress inks and watercolor paper for the first one and didn't really like how it turned out.

The second one I tried spritzing the paper after I stamped it, (shiny cardstock) and still didn't really like the effect so the other 2 I got ink on my stamp and misted the stamp before I stamped the paper.  With that leaf stamp I like the one that has less stamped images.
I enjoyed this technique and I will definitely try it again.  It was interesting to see everyone's version.

Card with cowboy or horse image.
I had just gotten a 6x6 pad of paper with this image and was wondering what to do with it. I CASE'd a card that Pam T. did here.

I made 2 of these cards and I have enough paper to make 2 more.
That's all I have so far.  I am going to go work on today's challenges.
