CCEE1608 challenge Florals


Lynn is hostess this week and her challenge:

In 1995 Massachusetts Governor William Weld declared February 28 Floral Design Day to honor educator Carl Rittner, the founder of the Rittner School of Floral Design. Let’s take this week in the dead of winter to do some paper and ink floral designs!

 Should you post your design to another online gallery, please use keyword CCEE1608. We hope you will join us in this challenge and link your creation on the blogsite.


I loved these pretty camellias digital  from Power Poppy. I colored this with copic markers and did some fancy cutting around them. I embossed the white background  and then attached the flowers with dimensionals. I added the ribbon so this could appear to be a loved arranged bouquet of camellias.

CCEE1607 It's National Drink Wine Day!

Lynn is again our hostess for this week. Here is her challenge:

Who knew? In America, February 18 is National Drink Wine Day. Include a wine glass or bottle on today’s card in honor of this weird day!

We hope you will join us in this challenge and link your creation below. Should you post your design to another online gallery, please use keyword CCEE1607.


Since I am not a big wine drinker, I think of drinking wine on very special celebrations. So I used black paper because it seems more formal, and then I added some fancy glittered cardstock and a silver embossed page to add to the grandness of the celebration. Although it doesn't show too well in the photo, I dry embossed a border panel up the right side of the black card.  I colored my image with copic markers.

CCEE1606 Valentine creatures

Welcome to week two of our CCEE February challenges. Lynn, is again our hostess for this February challenge with a little Valentine fun. Way back  in grade school, every Valentine’s Day   remember the  fun we had in using heart shapes in creating Valentine Critters to decorate our Valentine boxes. The task for today is to create an animal of any kind on your card in which you use heart shapes for some of its body parts.

We hope you will join us in this challenge and link your creation below. Should you post your design to another online gallery, please use keyword CCEE1606. 

I made mine into a red crab which I designed after one I saw on Pinterest. I stamped the "love" and added the handwritten portion of my sentiment. The shell and pinchers are made from hearts. For the pinchers I cut the heart in half and overlapped the rounded parts to shape them like pinchers. The eyes are heart shaped brads with black centers I added with sharpie.

Hope you have a Happy Valentines Day on Sunday, and give someone a pinch of love!!

CCEE1605 Winter activities


Hello, CCEE Stamper fans. Lynn is our hostess for the month of February. Many of us are having icy or snowy weather (or are dreaming that we do) now that February has arrived. Lynn's  challenge for you is to create a project which features some activity unique to the cold months of winter.

We hope you will join us in this challenge and link your creation below. Should you post your design to another online gallery, please use keyword CCEE1605.

For my card, I used one of the newest sets from Kitchen Sink Stamps which had a whole collection of silhouetted human figures doing ice and snow related activities. I choice this ice saketer for mine for this challenge. As many of you know, Lynn is a master with these Kitchen Sink Stamps and her scenes are masterpieces. She is my inspiration, although I have a long way to go to achieve that level of perfection. 

Actually, we live where there are mild winters, so I can only imagine doing snow and ice scenes, but it is fun to imagine, and since my body is not use to such cold, I really am glad don't have to deal with snow and ice on a regular winter routine.
