CCEE1702 Trifold card

Vicky is hosting the challenges for CCEE this month and this week's challenge was to make any kind of a trifold card. I used the Joy fold on mine. I am way behind on my thank yous from Christmas, but I decided to brighten things a bit with these spring colors. The daisy stamp is from Flourishes and the bee is one of those dollar bin finds at Michael's. Making use of some fabulous design paper I found in my stash. A new year's resolution for me: Work from the stash and deplete the papers in my stamp room.

Hope you join in on the fun this week and if you load to SCS please use the keyword: CCEE1702.

Crafters of Faith - Friendship

Starting out the new year with a restart with a group of ladies who craft and share their faith. I was a member of this group years ago, and it is great to be getting back to sharing with Christian sisters who share the love of stamping. Tracie  started us off by suggesting we use this scripture from Proverbs as our inspiration: "A sweet friendship refreshes the soul."

I just couldn't seem to find the right colors and patterns to go along with this sweet stamp, but I loved the image of these two little girls holding hands. During a particularly difficult time recently, I have been thinking just what a treasure friends are. God has lead some very incredible friends into my life and even if I don't get to see some of them often, and we might live many miles apart, I love those true friends who you can just pick up that special relationship no matter what.  like nothing has ever seperated us. Isn't that what is so special about God's love for us: when He reminds us that NOTHING can separate us from His love for us.

CCEE1701 Bird Day

Starting this new year with a new die and an old stamp. Vicky is hosting this our first challenge for 2017 for the CCEE stampers. She is repeating the "Bird Day" theme this year again, because who doesn't love these wonderful feathered creatures?  Hunt down your favorite bird stamp and if you download it to SCS please use this as your code: CCEE1701.  I used Stampin' Up markers to color onto the rubber of the stamp, the I spritzed it with water, and stamped it onto white cardstock. I really like this color scheme even though it looks like spring. It doesn't take long for me to tire of the grays and whites of winter.

Unity Color Challenge- red, white, kraft

This is one of my new stamps from Unity Stamps, and I decided to use it for the new color challenge going on over at Unity Stamps this week to use red, white, and kraft. I stamped the image with versafine black, and colored it with Spectrum Noir markers. I used a Martha Stewart punch on the red cardstock, and added white pearls. The cardbase is kraft cardstock.

Welcome to another week of challenges. This month we have Vicky as our hostess.

Today is Eat a Red Apple Day, so in the spirit of Christmas let's create something that includes the color Red.

Check out the other great cards from the rest of the team over at the CCEEStampers blog.

This might also fit the Craft Rockers Challenge #29 Winter time theme.

I used an stamp from Unity and colored it with copic markers chromatix markers, and Spectrum Noir markers. I found this little brass apple charm in my stash, so I colored it with my alcohol markers and daggled it with silver chord to go along with this theme of apple day.  I thought maybe this little red riding hood had a basket of apples she was delivering.

Completing my month of getting to be guest designer with the Crazy for Challenge group. Thanks for giving me this opportunity to join in on the fun of these fun Saturdays.  On this card I made use of a retired Stampin' Up set added some punched decorations, so glittery strips of paper and sequins and rhinestones always add  some glam.
