CCEE1911, National Shoe the World Day

Kelly says today is National Shoe the World Day.  Many teens and children around the world do not have a pair of shoes to wear, despite the climate or terrain, they walk barefoot

Let's create a card using any type of shoe -- cowboy boots, heels, flip-flops, to help the awareness to donate any shoes you may no longer need.

This is a Tim Holtz easel die.  Kinda fun!

Please add CCEE1911 to key words on splitcoaststampers and link back to our blog here.

Have a fun day....and clean out those shoes and donate them!

CCEE1910, Fun Facts About Your Name Day

Kelly carries on with March challenges.  She says Monday was Fun Facts about your Name Day.

What does your name mean?  Briefly research the meaning of your name and create a card.  If you can't find your name directly, create a card based on a few letters IN your name....i.e, K = Kite,
E=Enamel Dots, L=Lavender.

Obviously, my card is a "joke" card which will be sent to a good friend for her birthday!

Wanna try out your name.....why not?  Please link back to our blog here so we can see what your name is all about!

CCEE1907, Birthday Cards

Maryann carries on as February hostess.  She says:  "today is Valentine's Day and also my birthday this week, so please create a birthday card for someone you know."

I needed a masculine card for my son and this was the perfect challenge to get that off my list!

Masculine cards are difficult for most of us....I think!  I always make a deer card for Joe as he is a hunter, but I thought that was getting old.  Suddenly, I remembered Stampin Up's "Antique Autos" and thought that would work.  Hence today's card.  (Thanks for the push, Maryann!)

Come on....join us and show us your birthday cards!  Please link back to our blog here.

CCEE1906, Amethyst

Maryann takes over for the month of February.  For her first challenge, she says the birthstone for February is Amethyst so use a shade of purple and include gem stones or charms on your card.

Well, I have several February birthdays to make cards for....including mine (although I'm NOT making me a card!).  This card will go to one of the gals I send to.

I used Stampin Up butterflies.

Come on and join us in this us your amethyst!  Please link back to our blog here.

CCEE1905, National Thank You Month

For her last challenge this month, Liz says it's National Thank You month,  So, before the month is over, make a thank  you card and send an unexpected thank you to someone whose small act of kindness has not gone unnoticed by you.

My cousin is always there for me.  Right now, it's hunting season and I can guarantee you that I will be getting some deer jerky.  He lives about 40 miles away from me, but always finds time to stop in and say hello.  We have been besties since we were little kids and I love him dearly!

I did take some liberty and changed Thanks, Dear to Thanks, DEER!  Just seems so appropriate for this dedicated hunter.

Come, join in on this challenge.  I know there is someone in your life you'd like to thank!  Link back to our blog here.

CCEE1904, Gold

Liz carries on as hostess for January.  She says gold was discovered in California on January 24, 1848 so use some "gold" on your creations this week.

This is actually the 3rd card I have made  I am having a terrible time getting good photos,...tried two different cameras and 3 different cards for this challenge.  That card stock is as black as the Washi tape on the left....go figure!  Sorry for that; it is so frustrating!

Please join us in this challenge and show us your "gold"!
