Stars & Stamps VCMP Weekend

What a fun weekend for Operation Write Home.  To celebrate their birthday, on the Stars & Stamps Blog they held a virtual card making party that lasted all weekend long.  A total of 16 challenges presented, with a new one being hosted every 2 hours on a different blog.  Go check it out.  There are a ton of great ideas!  Click here to go to their post with all of the great challenges going on this month to celebrate their Birthday---
Happy Birthday Operation Write Home!!

This party was fantastic and generated a lot of ideas.  I am sure that there well be a ton of great cards pouring in shortly for the soldiers to send home to their families. 

I haven't been able to get through all of the challenges, but here are a few that I have been able to complete so far.  

Most of the patterned paper is from the Recollections All Seasons paper pad which I picked up, using a 40% off coupon, at my local Michaels store.  The ribbons and card stock were in my stash at home.  Water color pencils and paper were used with the stamps.  The vellum sentiment was printed on my Hp photo printer and created using Microsoft PowerPoint.

I apologize for using my scanner rather than a camera.  It tends to leave the cards and embellishments so flat.
