CCEE1942, National Fossil Day



Yesterday was National Fossil Day!  A fossil is a preserved impression of a once-living thing from a past geological age including plants, animals, shells, and more.  Create a card including anything that has been found as a fossil,....dinosaurs, leaves, amber, footprints etc.!

I made this card for my neighbor who is just a little older than I.....so, I hope he is not offended but I think he has a good sense of humor and will be ok!

Have a wonderful, creative day!

CCEE1940, National Techies Day



Well, Kelly takes over in October and for her first challenge, she says that today is National Techies Day,  She is so grateful to have the technology that we do!  Create a card with something 'Techy' on it (computers, cell phones, etc.) or simply create a thank you card (if need be!)

I must say, this was one of the hardest challenges I have done....guess my "techie" head wasn't with it!  But once I found this image, I knew I could do it (although it was yesterday that I finally "got with it"!  LOL!)

I hope you appreciate my sarcasm today, but sometimes, I just wonder why we can't communicate with each other.....end of my tale.  Join in and show us your "techie" card!

Have a great day!

CCEE1939, World Dream Day







For her last challenge this month, Frances tells us that September 25th is World Dream Day.  For our challenge this week, create a card with someone/something sleeping/ dreaming.

I saw this digital on Pinterest and it immediately drew me to it because when  was a kid, my dad would lay on the couch with a transistor radio listening to one game and have the TV on with another.....snoring!!!  That is until we changed the channel on the TV!  Then, without opening his eyes, he would yell "Turn that back to the game!"  Never did figure out how he could listen to two games at the same time while snoring!  How could I pass this guy up!!!!

Show us your Dream card.  Thanks for the (un)happy memory, Frances and thanks for some really fun challenges!
