CCEE1720, Fun Folds

Lois carries on as hostess for May.  This week she says she loves Fun Folds, so make a card that includes more than one fold.

Not sure what this is called.....saw it on Pinterest with no instructions and I had to figure it out myself.  It is a standing card which can be folded flat for mailing, but stands up when opened.

My neighbor's birthday has come and gone and he did receive this card.  He is a retired Fire Chief and I think he will get a kick out of it.

Lois takes over as hostess this month.  For her first challenge, she says:  "Here's a weird celebration.  May 4th is National Candied Orange Peel Day.  To celebrate, let's include the color ORANGE on our cards."  BTW, orange just happens to be Lois' favorite color....she's gonna enjoy seeing the cards this week!

CCEE1717, National Garden Month

Joanne says:  "When I think of April, I also think of flowers....spring is here and flowers are blooming.  That is probably why April is National Garden Month.  Make a card that includes floral or garden images."

I found this delightful image on Pinterest (my "go to" site for digitals!)  I do my church's card ministry, so this card will be used for that (hopefully!)  Seems I never have the right card, so am trying to make generic cards that I can use for several occasions.

Please join in and show us your wonderful flower cards!  Add CCEE1717 to keywords on splitcoaststampers.  Link back to the CCEE blog here so we can see your creations.

CCEE1716, Global Astronomy Month

For her third challenge this month, Joanne says that April is Global Astronomy Month.

Create a card having to do with astronomy, such as moons and stars, but not limited to that.  You could also fantasize about alien creatures and space travel.  Use your imagination and dazzle us.

I'm calling this card "Twilight"...that magical time when daylight is disappearing and nightfall is on its heels.  I used my Kemper Tool to splatter white acrylic paint for my stars.  This card will go to a fellow church member whose birthday is coming up!  I think it is masculine enough for a man.

CCEE1715, National Humor Month

For her second challenge this month, Joanne tells us:

"There are many occasions when a funny image or sentiment can make the day of someone facing some type of a challenge (or an "aged" birthday).  Please makes cards using humor.

This is an anniversary card...the sentie says:  "Still young at heart; slightly older everywhere else!"  This card will go to some friends who are having an anniversary.  Hope they see the humor!

What a fun challenge this was...come on ..... show us your humorous cards!  Please add CCEE1715 to keywords on splitcoaststampers and link back to the CCEE blog here.

CCEE1714, Road Trip

Joanne takes over for April Challenges.  The first week of April is called Read a Road Map Week.  Joanne wants us to take a scenic road trip on our cards in some way.  Have fun with this!

My son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter took a road trip to New River Gorge, WV in January this year.....brrr!  They did a lot of hiking and camping and enjoyed every minute.  New River Gorge is a fantastic place to visit....specially in the Fall, but winter?  Not for me!  Not even in my younger years!

Anyway, this card was sent to them as a little momento.
