OWH party challenges 2

Good morning. It's another day of partying! The challenges at OWH continue all day today. C'mon, you know you want to play along.

This first card is challenge #9 from Patricia - 1 ~ 2 ~ 3. One patterned paper, 2 images, and a sentiment with 3 words (or more). Easy, right - not so :)

I finally settled on (1) patterned paper - kept pulling out matching paper and having to put it away. My (2) images are the embossing on the green and the sentiment cut out from (matching) patterned paper - I think that's allowed. The sentiment stamped has (3) words.

Challenge #10 from Sandy was a challenge for me. I don't do well with "scenes". She challenged us to use the same stamp or image on 2 cards - using different seasons or holidays. You know by now that I LOVE the Stampin Up bench. I need to use the other chairs in this set (some day). So, here is summer and winter (hope you can see the snow flakes).

Challenge #11 - Kate showed us how to make these way too cute (and easy) pinwheels - yes, you will be seeing more pinwheels on my cards :P

I'm taking a break for now so I can go eat lunch. C-ya later.

I'm back. Here is Challenge #12 - Sarah challenged us to use fruit or food on our card. I've been waiting to use this cherry paper. I wanted to put something like "you're sweet" but my printer still is not working (out of ink). Forgot to got to Staples!

And challenge #13 - Linda wants us to use a bear in our card. I love bears. This is a copy of a card I did long ago and just loved it so I made several more to put in in my next OWH box.

Challenge #16 - Lisa challenged us to use a play on words. I created these two cards. The dog was so cute and his "ruff day" was more of a play on words than the squirrel's "nuts for you" but I liked them both.

Sorry the picture is out of focus - it's getting close to bed time :)
