CCEE1646, Party with Your Bear Day

Frances carries on as hostess.  She says November 16th was "Have a Party With Your Bear Day".  So, to celebrate, let's feature bears on our cards.

I fell in love with this little mama bear and her cub and decided to make a Christmas card.  Because of the high cost of mailing cards now, I am trying to make as many CAS cards as I can.  I hope you like it.

Please join in with our challenge and show us your favorite bear.  Add CCEE1646 to key words on splitcoaststampers.

Have a fun, creative day!

CCEE1644, Wobbly Wednesday

Frances takes over as November hostess.  She says "the 2nd of November was Wobbly Wednesday.  This day is to bring awareness to a condition called Nystagmus, a non-stop and uncontrolled movement of the eyes, symptomatic of problems with the visual system of the brain and body.

For our challenge this week, let's add something wobbly on your could be those fun wobbly eyes, action wobbles or some other form of movement on your card.

I realize Halloween is over, but I made this card for a little 5 year old gal and it fit the challenge.  So, here's my wobbly eyes!

CCEE1642, One Layer Card

Joanne (a/k/a jojot) continues on as hostess for October.

This week, she says she has a double challenge for us.  First, we must make a true one-layer card...nothing popped up or embellished.  Second, the card must have a Halloween or Thanksgiving theme.

I chose this Northwoods image and did a Thanksgiving card.  I like how it turned out and was amazed that a one layer could look good!  I think I will do most of my Thanksgiving cards this way.  Thanks, Joanne!
