CCEE1642 One layered card

This week Joanne has a double challenge for us. First, you must make a true one-layer card….nothing popped up or embellished. Second, your card must have a Halloween or Thanksgiving theme.

I sponged the moon using the negative side of a diecut circle. I stamped the bats with a great stamp I bought out of the bargain bin at Michael's last year. I painted in the night sky with watered down ink.
The sentiment is from an old retired Stampin' Up set.

CCEE1641 World sight day

Joanne is back today with another fun challenge for us all!

Today is World Sight Day. Include glasses, eye charts, or a sentiment related to one’s sight on your card today. 

Let's take a look what the Design Team created for this challenge ..over at the CCEEStampers blog

I am not sure of the sources of the stamps I used today, but had fun putting some together that were not part of the same set.

It is October and breast awareness month. The challenge over at Cas-ual Friday Challenge is this:

So I used the hope sentiment 8 times on the card, and used this dress image from the "Fight Like a Girl" set offered a few years back from Flourishes. I have many friends who have survived their bouts with breast cancer, and lost a few friends who didn't. I pray great stride continue to be made in combating this disease; 1 in 8 is too great of a ratio for this horrible desease.

CCEE1640 Get Well

Joann is our hostess this month and in honor of Physician's Assistant's Day (Oct 6th), she is asking us to make a Get Well Card. Our sweet Joann is recovering from surgery herself, and I also have a sweet friend who got pitched from her horse and is recovering from a broken pelvic. I know both of them have probably tried to make humor their best medicine, so hope this little card puts a smile on their faces, as I wish them forward in their quick re-coveries. This stamp is by Artistic Obsessions, and although it was a male on the stamp, I had to turn into a female for my friends. Sorry!!! That is probably against some kind of copyright laws, but ....

Please join us in the challenge by adding your card as an attachment on your comments, or if you load it over on SCS, please use CCEE1640 as you keyword.  Check out all the wonderful other team members; cards over at  www.cceestampers.blogspot;com

MOJO468 and TLC606

Sometimes I can roll two challenges into one, and today was my lucky day. I used the bandana technique for the TLC606 Challenge over on SCS, and this sketch that is being done this week on the Mojo Monday challenge:
All the stamps I used were from Verve. The burgandy organdy ribbon appeared to be a better match in real life than it does in the photo. Happy Monday, everyone!

JUGS363 Leaves

This weekend we are finally getting a feeling of fall in the air. Love the colors of fall leaves, so added them to my card for the JUGS 363 challenge today.

CCEE1639 Christmas or winter card

This was Lois' final challenge for us this month: make a Christmas or winter card.
I am always happy to get to make a Christmas card early ahead of the rush. December gets so busy and too much that needs to be done, so there's less time to get those creative juices flowing. I had a good time with this one. I used a new die I had bought at a convention and found these two little mini candy canes in my stash of embellishments, so thought they looked rather cute on the card.

Please check over on the CCEEstampers blog site for other cards made by members of the team.
If you choose to play along, use the CCEE1639 as your keyword over on SCS or add it as an attachment to you comments on the CCEE blog site here.
