CCEE1605, Winter Activity

Lynn starts the new year out with our challenges.  For her first challenge, she says:

"Many of us are having icy or snowy weather (or are dreaming that we do) now that February has arrived.  My challenge for you is to create a project which features some activity unique to the cold months of winter."

Well, bringin' in the wood sure qualifies....specially with those big snowflakes coming down!!!  I found this image on Pinterest...looks like it may be a Precious Moment, but it wasn't labeled so I'm not 100% sure!

Join us and let's see what  you come up with.  Please add CCEE1605 to keywords on Split Coast Stampers and link back to the CCEE blog.

CCEE1604, Chocolate Cake

To quote Frances.....Who doesn't love chocolate cake.  Did you know that there is even a special day to celebrate this yummy treat!  Chocolate Cake Day was January 27th.  Cards this week should feature cake, bonus points if it's chocolate!

I found this sweet cupcake on Pinterest...just in time for a birthday which just happens to be January 27th.  So, by the time you see this, this card will have been delivered.

Please join in with this fun challenge, adding CCEE1604 to keyword.  Also please link back to the CCEE blog here.

CCEE1603, Opposites

January 25th is National Opposite Day.  For our challenge this week, make a card/project that has opposites on it.  Think opposite colors on the color wheel, stripes and polka dots, black and white, mirror image, etc.

I did stripes and polka dots.

CCEE1602, Hats

Frances carries on as January hostess.  She says tomorrow (January 15th) is Hat Day.  So, include a hat on your card creations this week.

I needed a masculine birthday card and this dude with his Stetson seemed to fit two needs in one card!  I found this dude on Pinterest and couldn't pass him up!  Colored with Copics, added a Sheriff badge and computer generated sentiment and done!

Won't you join in with us?  Show us your cards by linking back to the CCEE Blog.  If posting on splitcoaststampers, please add CCEE1602 to your keywords.

Have a fun, creative day!

CCEE1601, Hot Tea Month

Well, we begin the New Year with Frances, a/k/a stampowl, as our hostess.

Apparently, according to the "Days of the Year" website, January is "Hot Tea Month".  Frances wants to see cards with a "tea" theme for this week's challenge.,

I found this amazing digital on comes from Beyond the Fringe and I love it.  Fun coloring and embellishing with some tea bags and twine.  The tea bags are from Mark's Finest Papers and are a retired set by now.

Won't  you join us in this challenge.  If you don't have any tea images, please feel free to check out my Pinterest Board "Vicky's Digitals" as I have pinned quite a few thanks to Frances and her challenge.  LOL!

Also, if adding to splitcoaststampers, please add the keyword CCEE1601 and don't forget to link back to our CCEE Blog.

CCEE1550, Leap Seconds

Joanne a/k/a jojot takes over for the last two challenges for 2015.  For the last challenge this year, she says:

"Did you know?  Thee are occasional "Leap Seconds" added to the official year.  They help to correct minor variations in time.  On December 31, 2015, the folks who maintain the official time for the planet, will add an extra second to the day!  To honor this, the challenge for this week is to incorporate time into your card....a clock, a calendar, a date, a watch, etc.

I chose an old Waltham Watches poster for my card....and, of course, a Sizzix Embossing Folder with pocket watches on it.  I think this will make a fabulous masculine birthday card.  Inside wills say:
"Laughter is timeless, imagination has no age, and dreams are forever!"....a Walt Disney Quote.

Please join in on this last 2015 CCEE challenge.  Add CCEE1550 to keywords on SCS and link back to the CCEE blog.  Have a good one!
