CCEE1630, National Milk Chocolate Day

For her last challenge this month, Joanne tells us that Today is National Milk Chocolate Day.  So, let's make some deeeelish designs showing chocolate in some form or using the color chocolate.

I made chocolate Easter Bunnies (one down!) and also used Chocolate Chip cardstock.  I love a sense of humor....whish I could claim it.  The inside says "...besides chocolate, you're my favorite".

Won't you join in on this challenge.  Please add CCEE1630 to keywords on splitcoaststampers.

CCEE1629, Beaches

Joanne carries on as hostess this month.  For this week, Joanne says:

July, for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, is one of our warmest months.  When I think oi hot days, I think of the beach.  Let's create cards that honor beaches in some way."

I chose this dreamy mermaid sitting on a beach playing in the sand for my card.  This will go to a good friend of mine who also loves the beach!  Doesn't hurt that she also LOVES the beach!!!  LOL!

Won't you join in with us and show us your work?  If you post on SCS, please add CCEE1629 to the keywords.  Have a fun creative day!

CCEE1628, Cow Appreciation Day

Today, Joanne tells us that tomorrow is National Cow Appreciation Day.  So, let's create a card with a cow or two on it.  If you happen to not have cow images, then use another "farm" animal.  Please add a fun sentiment or make it as a get well card.

My sentiment outside is "HERD it's your birthday".....inside says:  "Party til the cows come home".  My cow has a little kitten to party with!

If you play along and post on splitcoaststampers, please add CCEE1628 to your keywords.  Also, please link back to the CCEE Blog

Have a "moo-licious" day!!!

As a true ice cream lover, I must admit this was a "delicious" challenge.  Thanks, Joanne!

CCEE1625, Birds

I cannot tell a fib!  As most of you know, I love birds.  Let's use birds on our cards this week...Crazy Birds, Real Birds, Cartoon Birds.....whatever trips your trigger!  One, two, a flock...your choice!  Show me those birds!

On March 17th of this year, Sabrina Cook was the hostess for the Ways to Use it Challenge and her challenge was to do multiples of three.  She made this card and directed us to directions on Splitcoaststamers here.  I wanted to give it a try and this is the result!  Sabrina's photography was much better than mine.  LOL!

You don't have to make a fancy card for this challenge...just get a bird on it somewhere!  If you join us, please add CCEE1625 to keywords on splitcoaststampers and link back to the CCEE Blog here.

Have a fun, creative day!

CC588, Kim's birthday

I cannot tell a lie. I was looking through the CC gallery when I spotted this card by Maura (Beesmom). I have made three cards for my niece...not of which I liked. I absolutely fell in love with Maura's card and while mine comes nowhere near, it certainly was inspired by her awesome work of beauty. Thanks, Maura. My June cards are now DONE!!!

I have been in a stamping funk for some time now....hope that little spell is now broken and I can get back to doing challenges!

Please have a wonderful day!
