CCEE1638, Follow the list





Lois carries on as hostess this week.  She says to follow the list:

one animal
two layers
three colors

My three colors are green, yellow and blue....plus the neutrals gray, black and white.

My now long gone, Toby, looked like this image I found on Pinterest.  She was the joy of my life and lived a good 18 years....others have come and gone, but this was my favorite of all times.  Still miss her!!

Come on and join us...it's fun!

CCEE1637, Dies Only





Lois carries on as hostess this  month.  She says to make a card with no stamping....just die cuts.  Hope the sentiments don't count!  Challenge Police?

Susie Australia made this card back on July 1st and I fell in love with it.  I made mine for Laynee's 9th birthday...think she'll get a kick out of it!

Here's Susie's (thanks for the inspiration, Susie!)




Does Susie win the "most creative pereson evah" award!!!  She is such the wonderful artist.  Who would think of making a Crazy Bird into a fish!!!

How about joining us and showing us your "dies only" card!  If posting on splitcoaststampers, please add CCEE1637 to your keywords!

CCEE1636, W-O-R-D


For her second challenge this month, Lois says:

"I think most kids are back in school by now.  So, let's have a Word Challenge--the word being WORD.  Include something on your card that begins with each of the letters in W-O-R-D."

I decided to double challenge myself and see if I could incorporate all four letters in one image.  I did it.

W - Woods
O - Owl
R - Ringless Honey Mushrooms - not the ones on the tree, but the little circular ones between the trees to the left of the deer.
D - deer

I love this image; think it makes such a wonderful masculine card....specially for a hunter!

Come on and join in on the fun.  If you post on splitcoaststampers, please add CCEE1336 to the keywords.   And link back to the CCEE blog here.

CCEE1634, More Herbs, Less Salt Day!





Joanne's last challenge for this month is all about Herbs!  Herbs and plants add so much to our lives, so in honor of this unusual day, make a card with an herb or plant on it.  I know we have lots of followers who love gardening, so any of these images would work great.  You might even want to add colors that are named after herbs and plants; sage, thyme, lavender, cinnamon, nutmeg, mint, celery, olive or cocoa, as well as all those you can think of!

I chose Candytuft which is a medicinal herb, used for Dyspepsia - chronic digestive distress.

This was a fun challenge as were all of Joanne's challenges this month.  Thanks for some great ideas, Joanne....well done!

CCEE1633, National Aviation Day

Liz carries on as hostess with a theme of National Aviation Day.  Liz says:

"Tomorrow is my birthday, as it is Bill Clinton, and in honor or Orville Wright (who shares this birthday with me), Franklin D. Roosevelt issued a proclamation to make it National Aviation Day.  I thought it would  be fun to hunt down an image of something man has made to fly in the air.  It might be an airplane, helicopter, rocket, jet or hot air balloon.  If none of these are available to you, how about a kite or a simple birthday balloon?  Our bonus can be to make it a birthday card!!!"

Well, I got a little guy flying an airplane who just happens to be one now...so this worked out well for me!

Won't you join in?  Please add CCEE1633 to keywords on splitcoaststampers.  Have a wonderful day!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LIZ!

CCEE1632, National Catfish Month

Liz carries on as hostess this month.  She says that the month of August is National Catfish Month.  Fishing is a year round sport and hobby in her area (mine too), especially saltwater fishing.  So, find a fish, or someone fishing and it might make a perfect masculine card for your stash.

This card is actually going to my neighbor for his birthday.  I love this image and how it turned out....hope you do too!

Come join us and link back to the ccee blog here.  Please add CCEE1632 if posting on splitcoaststampers.

Have a fun, creative day!
