CCEE1417, What does April Showers mean to you?

Kathy's last challenge for April is to show what April Showers means to you, i.e. flowers, weeds, mowing, sun, warmer temperatures, etc.  Well, April Showers bring May flowers and the return of the birds.  For some reason, the birds totally abandon my feeders in winter and I miss them sooo much.  Just now, as I post this (end of March), I'm starting to get a couple birds back....soon, they will return with the warmer weather and I'll be filling those feeders daily!  I can't wait....I love birds.  The branch on the image also reflects the emergence of flowers, bushes, tree leaves...all the great things of Spring and Summer....I can't wait.  I definitely am not a winter person and after this past cold, long, snowy winter,  Spring will be a welcome sight!

Join us in this us what April Showers means to you.  Please link back to the CCEE Stampers' Blog and add CCEE1417 to keywords on SCS.  Have fun with it....and....HAPPY SPRING/SUMMER.

SC485, Dan's Birthday

This card is for an attorney I worked for in Virginia who became one of my best friends...we have never lost touch to this day.  When I worked for him, he was an avid fisherman!  It was also the sketch challenge on splitcoaststampers.

I had used Copics to color white cardstock the colors of a rainbow trout....unfortunately that and my lures got lost in the sketch.

Have a wonderful day.

CC475, Simple Joys

Today's color challenge is Click on palette to enlarge
Pacific Point
Real Red and
Pumpkin Pie

I used my Copics to come as close as I could. No dessert for me as I don't have any of those "trendy enamel dots"....I did put sequins on though.

Back to mulching the flower beds IF it doesn't rain!
Have a great one.

Today's featured stamper is BarbieP. Barbie has a wonderful gallery full of eye candy, she joins in challenges and leaves comments. What's not to love?

I chose this card to case.

I loved the layout. Got invited to dinner at my niece's and needed yet one more Easter card so, I changed the theme and made a square card.

Thanks for the inspiration, Barbie...enjoy your reign as the FS!

CCEE1416, Favorite Movie or Star

Kathy Bradley continues on with the April challenges.  This week, Kathy says to make a card that reflects your very favorite movie or movie star.  We are to identify the movie or star.  Well, I loved going to the movies when I was a kid and seeing the musical/movies with Gene Kelly, Donald O'Connor, Debbie Reynolds, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.  If you were lucky enough to see some of them, you have lived!  It was a world of movie stars and glamor!!!

I found posters on Amazon showing the old time movies I loved and I made a border with some of them.  They're all there and so are the stars I mentioned above.  A favorite...all of them!!!!  Hope Kathy understands!  Not one; but many!

Have a great day....hey, why not start it by joining in with Kathy's challenge?  You can add CCEE1316 to your keywords on splitcoaststampers  Please link back to the CCEE Blog.
