VCMP Challenge #1: Garanimals!

This weekend Operation Write Home is having a virtual card making party! That's VCMP for those who haven't figured it out lol. You can find all of the challenges over on the Stars & Stamps blog. Every couple of hours a new challenge will be posted. You can play along with all of them, or pick and choose. It's entirely up to you!

The first challenge is to make a card for a child with an animal. I've had these Disney Eeyore stickers from Sandylion for awhile now. I originally got them to make a card for my mom, and I still have plenty left for when I get around to her card.

Here's my first card:

The background flower paper is from an old Bitty Pad I've had for ages. The other papers are all from my stash. I used two stickers on this card. The flower on his foot is a separate sticker. The sentiment is from the SU! set So Happy For You. I originally stamped it directly on to the purple paper...upside down! Oops lol. I like the way it turned out, though, with the touch of pink pulling in the color from the bow on his tail.

And my second card:

I tried to make this one a little more appropriate for a boy, but I'm not sure it worked. Again, as usual, all of the paper is from my stash. The smile stamp is from SU! Wonderful Words II that I embossed in black. I had a little issue with embossing powder speckles, but I think it still passes muster.

I'm a few hours behind on challenges, so I'm off to see about the next one!



  1. Love your cards! I especially like the second one....that pose cracks me up!

  3. I so love your cards! Purple, Eeyore, and stars are some of my favorite things. Apparently they make for lovely cards. I'm sure the children will love them.
