My Very First Card Challenge Post with Our Craft Lounge #47

Well, about a week or so ago, I received a stamp set from one of the OCL facebook blogs contests. I was so excited to win For the Love of Birds set. This is my first and only set from OCL and I just love it. Then a challenge came up and I decided it was time to take the plunge. So, I have four cards I made for the challenge. If they didn't have a challenge, I was still going to post a card to thank them for the wonderful set of stamps. So here are my entries for OCL#47
I made this card for my husband for Valentine's Day. He is a no fuss kind of guy, so I kept it simple.
This is just another simple card that I made for my friend to give to her husband. They have a cabin by the river and love the outdoors.  

I made this easel card and tried to keep it simple and with the kraft, red and black theme of the challenge. I think I will give this one to my daughter and future son-in-law for Valentine's day. I just love this stamp set.      

This is my favorite card. I made this card to congratulate my daughter and future son-in-law on their recent engagement. Did I say that I really, really love this stamp set. 
Well, those are my cards that I am submitting to OCL for the #47OCL challenge. If I missed the challenge, oh, well, I just loved making the cards to show OCL that I did use the set that I won and that I really appreciated winning.

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day.
