CCEE1825, Ocean Challenge

This week, Joanne says:

"As many of you know, the ocean is my favorite place....and my annual trip to Maine is sacred.  So, in honor of that, please create a card inspired by the ocean or beaches."

I just got this little die set and thought it would work ok for the challenge.  I must admit, it was fun to put together along with the verse from Hebrews.

CCEE1823, Virgin Stamps

Probably 5 or 6 years ago, I bought this set at Big Lots for $2.00.  Everyone on SCS was using that gown and I fell in love with it!  The whole set was virgin until this challenge.

This card will go to my granddaughter who moved to Colorado to follow her dreams.  I remember when my DH and I went "on the road", how much I missed family and wondered what we were doing.  I truly did "believe" and my DH and I had 5 years of unsurpassed travel....memories that are precious now that he is gone.  However, my granddaughter is all alone in Colorado where she always dreamt of being, so I think an little encouragement is warranted,

Won't you join us and show us your virgin stamps!  Please add CCEE1823 to keywords on SCS and link back to our blog here.  Have a fun, productive day!

Well, I must admit this was a hard challenge for me.  Anne says she wakes up in the morning to, make a card using each of these letters,,,,,N, E, W, S.  I truly did struggle with this one!

I finally decided to make a Christmas card to add to my stash and to be truthful, the boy on the sled had already been die cut so I decided to do a silhouette.

Still took a little thinking, but this is what I came up with:

N - Noel
E - Evergreens (silhouette here)
W - Woods (Lovely as a Tree)
S - Snow, sled, silhouette

So, thanks, Anne.....another card for my Christmas stash!

Come on and play along!  Please link back to our CCEE blog here.

CCEE1819, Red for Anne

This week, Anne says:

"My birthday is in two days.  Make me happy by using some RED on your card or project"  Red is definitely Anne's fav color!

I bought this Happy Anniversary die cut and was very disappointed when it came because it was soooo big.  Then, I needed an anniversary card and figured I'd give it a shot. I do like it (but, still wish it were smaller), this will go to some friends celebrating yet another special day.

Won't you join us in this challenge?  Show us some RED for Anne on your card!  Please link back to our blog here.  Please add CCEE1819 to keywords on splitcoaststampers.

Have a great day!
