CCEE. TSC and Squigglefly

The challenge for the CCEE Stampers and Squigglefly was to make a spring card with a scene, flowers, etc.. The Twisted Sister Challenge was to use atleast two different spellbinders, add buttons, brads or charms, ribbon and twine were optional. Check out the CCEE Stampers blog for details of their challenge and see the other team members cards.

I chose a Squigglefly digital image to use on this challenge and colored it with copics. I used the Fleur Di Lis motif and circle spellbinders.

We had a horrendous tornado here early this morning. We were lucky and did not have any damage at our house. There was a considerable amount of damage on the other side of town and at least 6 fatalities. It is so sad to see all that people have lost including loved ones. My prayers are with each an everyone of them.

Thanks, so much, for stopping by and taking a look at my card.

I just had to make a card in pink with this cute image.


This week the tea potter's are making cards for Chris Titolo to take to the children's hospital where he was a patient. He was appreciative of their great care so he is doing a card drive to get cards for the nurse's to give to children who are there on their birthday.
I thought this Paper Cupcakes Digital image was so perfect for this challenge. Isn't he just the cutest little elephant cupcake? This also qualifies for our TSC this week.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

CCEE Favorite Zoo Animal

The challenge this week is to make a card with our favorite zoo animal on it. I like several so it was a hard choice, but the zebra won out over the others. I still like this Stampin Up Set Zoofari.
It is another of my favorites to make baby cards with. I stamped the image with versafine ink, it always makes a nice clear image and is my choice ink when I do not have to color an image. Versafine does smear when you try to color it with copics. The CCEE Stampers would be pleased if you would join us for this challenge. Come on over to the CCEE Stampers blog and take a look at the other team members cards. Glad you stopped by to take a peek at my zoofari card.

Kathy-featured stamper

My friend, Kathy was chosen as Featured Stamper on Splitcoast stampers two weeks ago. I am just now getting a card made in her honor. Kathy has a wonderful SCS gallery and her coloring is just beautiful. No way can I do her coloring justice. I chose a squigglefly image for my card as it reminded me of the image Kathy had on her card and Kathy is on the Squigglefly design team. The dp is ColorBok and I used a Cheery Lynn Die that I purchased from Happy Scrappy. Here is the card of Kathy's that I cased:

Thanks for coming by and checking out my featured stamper card. See you again real soon.

A critter for the Paper Cupcakes challenge

The challenge this week for Paper Cupcakes was to use any Paper Cupcake image that had a critter on it. I chose the image "Beeware" for my image. I used paper out of my scrap bin so I can't tell you the name of it. I colored the little chicken with copics, punched a couple of flowers, added a brad and used tan ribbon to finish up my card. Come on over to There's Magic in the Air and join us for the challenge this week. We would love to see your card.

I will be back soon with another card. Thanks for stopping by.

Welcome Emerson, TSC0217

The Twisted Sister challenge this week was given by Carroll Anne. She challenged us to make a children's card, use an out of the box technique and use yellow. The little duck saved me on using yellow. My ribbon was too wide for the space on my card so I twisted it and tied the bow with a fork. I used tear drop circle spellbinders and colored the image with copics. I stamped the baby bottle and put a slit in the arm so it looks like the baby bunny is holding it.

This card is for a new baby boy at church.

Thanks, for stopping by to see what I made.

Better late than never

I made this card for a little boy who had some extensive surgery before Christmas. I am red faced that it has taken me so long to get a card made for him. He loves playing ball so I thought this image was perfect for him. I don't have many little boys stamps so I found this cute pre-colored digi at Beccy's place.

It is winter again in our neck of the woods. I was getting use to that 60 degree weather. It really needs to get really cold a couple of times to kill all the germs and bugs. I could take a few cold days as long as it does not stay that way for weeks. Since mother nature has not ask what kind of weather that I want, I suppose I will just take what she chooses.

Thanks for stopping by. Come back soon.

Paper Cupcakes

Here is the card I made for the Paper Cupcakes challenge this week. We were to use Nina's new image "Enjoy the Moment". Danie challenged us to design a card/project for someone you love ( husband, children, sister etc) using the colors pink and white with one other color, but that color can't be red. I chose Porcelain blue for my color. The hearts are cut with spellbinders, I used the MS fence punch, buttons, thread, swiss dots embossing folder and tulle. Please drop by There's Magic in the Air. and join us for the challenge.

Graphic 45 cards

This card was made for the Twisted Sister challenge. Kathy gave us the challenge to use a circle on our card and to use black and one other color of our choice. I used the Graphic 45 stamp and paper for this card. I bet you can tell by this post, I sure like this paper. *smile*
I made this card for Terri aka Bratcards who was Queen for the day on Splitcoast stamping.
Did I tell you I am loving this loving the Graphic 45 paper which is new to my inventory. *grin again* I hope you are liking it, too.
I made this card for our pastor that is in the hospital. I enjoyed using the Tim Holtz old truck and the graphic 45 paper together. I had forgotten I had gotten this stamp set before Christmas. I suppose I was too busy making Christmas cards at that time so I didn't get a chance to use it. This is a different look for me, let me know what you think.

I entered this card in Here Come The Boys song title challenge. The name of the song is "The Pick Up Man".

CCEE-Snowman with Scallops

The challenge for the CCEE stampers was to make a card with a snowman and add scallops.
I chose this cute little snowman by Paper Cupcakes, the dp is Stampin' Up. We hope you will join us in the CCEE stampers challenge, you can upload your card at the CCEE Stampers blog.

Hope you all are having a wonderful Ground Hog Day. PUNXSUTAWNEY Phil was out playing today and he saw his shadow so they say that means we will have 6 more weeks of winter. It is not looking like winter here today, it is suppose to be in the 50's.

Thanks, for stopping by and taking a look at my card.
