I loved the cars, fences, palm trees, so I decided we had to go with a "WOODY", Dude, to hang ten on a RED surfboard at the beach. I hope you like it, and that you will join in the fun of the challenge.
Sabrina challenged us to a technique today, Inlaid Die cuts. You can find the directions at SCS under tutorials. Here's mine:
I used scraps of matching blues to make this birthday card for my cousin's little boy who will be 6. The whale is from SU, and I added a PTI "HELLO", and an oval nestie. The face is done with a googlie eye and marker. Please join us!
Interestingly, because February is a short month, there can actually be years in which there is no full moon at all. The last time this happened was 1999, the next time will be 2018. So while this isn't one of those years, the challenge from Sabrina is to feature the moon.
Inside it says, "Don't worry if you're making waves simply being yourself. The moon does it all the time". (Scott Stabile)
Our hostess for the month of February is Sabrina Friel. she reminds us that February 6th, 1952 was the day Queen Elizabeth ascended to the throne. She challenged us to make a card featuring crowns or royal images (and that playing cards could work for this too).
As you can see, I used an embossing folder of the Queen of Hearts, and a little stamp for the ticket. I think this makes a nice Valentine as well! Please join us.
Classy Cards n Such is a new site for me. They have a challenge every week, and this was the first time I entered.........and WON! I need to thank my friend, Shirley, for passing along the information.
Here's the card I made for their LETTER IT challenge, a shaker card. I laid the card down to take the photo, so all the beads wouldn't be in the bottom.
Thanks for looking, and you can visit them HERE for this coming week's challenge.
I really love the way this looks. The bg is embossed with a Spellbinders rose folder. I used layered nesties to support my panel with a stamp from Walmart, embossed in white, bleached, and painted. I hope you like it too.
Yesterday we spent a few hours with Julia (artystamper) and Kent, who invited us and two other couples for a birthday celebration. I'm not saying how old Kent is, but he's younger than we are. After drinks, appetizers (YUM!), salad, soup, and sandwiches, we had birthday PIE (pecan, my fav), and the men were excused while the women crafted.
Julia got a new template and stamps, had everything all set up for us, and this is what we made. I normally don't post something I'm not proud of. Just look at this in terms of how cute it is, not how badly I put it together!
Thanks Julia (and Kent) for a fun time, and for a new crafting idea!!
For our last challenge of the year (can ya believe it?), Lynn has challenged us to create a card starring the jolly guy himself, SANTA. I chose to make a card with a Vintage image, starring Santa, and a little angel. If you enlarge the picture by clicking on it, you can see how sweet she is.
Thanks for checking in with CCEE this year. Have a wonderful and safe holiday, and see you in 2015!
