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!

CCEE1817, National Poetry Day

For her last challenge this month, Lois says April is National Poetry Month and today is Poem in your Pocket Day.  Create a card using a poem as your inspiration.

I chose Robert Frost's "The Road Not Taken":

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth.

Then took the other, as just as fair
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that, the passing there;
Had worn them really about the same.

And both that morning equally lay
in leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood and I --
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

CCEE1815, National Pet Day

For Lois's second challenge, she tells us April 11th was National Pet Day  Use a pet (dog, cat, bird, canary...whatever) on your card.

My grand niece has a beautiful Golden Lab named Molly.  She is one of the most outstanding dogs in our family...loving, smart, a guardian for the babies...she is just amazing.  When I saw this digital on Pinterest, I knew I had to do it.  I will save this for that sad day when Molly crosses the Rainbow Bridge because I know I won't be able to make one then.  I hope that is a couple years away, but Molly is showing her age....that's the sad part with our animals who are parts of our families.  Anyway, I love how this turned out and hope you do to....and I hope I can put it away for a couple more years!
