OWH Stars and Stamps 4th of July Party Challenges and Challenge #76

Happy 4th of July  and God Bless America!   I hope everyone has had a safe and happy 4th.  I am posting most of the challenge cards -- I still have some to make.  I didn't start until yesterday (Sunday July 3rd) -- we were enjoying some of the 4th festivities on Saturday.  This 4th Party Challenge was a challenge for me.  Some of the items that were requested to be part or in the cards had me on a scavenger hunt in my craft room.  I have a few stamps -- but it always seems the one you need is the one you don't have.  Many of the items on the cards I made with the help of designer papers, pre-colored digis and stickers.  It seemed it took me more time looking for the theme thinga-ma-bob than putting the card together -- but I enjoyed every minute.  Thanks for those of you putting this challenge together.

Challenge #1 - Camouflage at Brenda's Stamping Cornder

You did a great job keeping up with so many challenges! Your cards are all great, but for some reason that color me crazy card just stole my heart! It's adorable!!

I like all your cards! It's good to be challenged sometimes to help us get out of our comfort zones - plus it helps us to revisit stamps and stuff that we haven't used for a while.

I am impressed with how many challenges you were able to play along with in just 2 days. Like you I was able to participate in some but will be going back and playing along with others for the next few days.
