CCEE1509, Inlaid Die Cuts

This will be Sabrina's last challenge, since it's time to pass the baton onto another team member for March. You can bet we'll have some good challenges coming!

It wouldn’t be a month of challenges from Sabrina without a technique challenge, and the various ones for “the month of the pearl” were all optional, so here’s a technique challenge pure and simple...or not so simple; it’s up to you.

CCEE1508, Moon

Sabrina carries on as hostess for February.  Sabrina says:

"Interestingly, because February is a short month, there can actually be years in which there is no full moon at all.  The last time this happened was 1999, the next time will be 2018.  So while this isn't one of those years, feature the moon on your card."

My big ol' white moon is peeking over an uninhabited island.  Psalm 139:9-10 gives encouragement to any stranded creatures that land on this island!

Hope you like my moon!  Let's see yours.....and, don't "moon" me!  Please add 1508 to keywords on splitcoaststampers and link back to the CCEE blog.

CCEE1507, PearlEX




Sabrina gives us a little Finnish challenge this week.  She says:

"The Finnish for February is "helmikuu", which means "month of the pearl".  Snow melting on twigs and refreezing as drops has a pearl-like look.

You can take it easy and just use pearls/Liquid Pearls on your card, or you could be adventurour and try out some pearl techniques; pull out that old Pearl-Ex or Perfect Pears!!"

There are several tutorials on splitcoaststampers.  See the CCEE blog for links.  Please add CCEE1507 to keywords on splitcoaststampers and link back to Mr. Linky on the CCEE blog.

Have a great day!!

CCEE1506, Uneasy lies the head



Sabrina starts us out with our February challenges.  Sabrina says:

"February 6, 1952 was the day Queen Elizabeth ascended to the throne.  Make a card featuring crowns or "royal images" - remember that playing cards could work for this too!"

I found these digital crowns online and embellished them with all the diamonds and gems befitting a Queen.  Shakespeare lent me the quote.

Come play along with us.  Add CCEE1506 to keywords on splitcoaststampers and link back to Mr. Linky on the CCEE blog.  Have fun!

Card Ministry



I recently volunteered for a card ministry at church.  I will be sending birthday cards to Golden Agers (80+), sympathy cards and sometimes get well cards.

I found this digital somewhere on Pinterest and was able to computer generate the birthday sentiment.  Hope they like it.

IC478, Spike's birthday


I made this card for my neighbor's birthday this week.  the IC challenge was to go to a Pinterest Board titled "My Favorite Candles".  Beautiful candles there.

I chose this candle for the colors.  Spike is an outdoor man...matter of fact, he just went skiing yesterday, so I know he enjoys the snow.

Have a great weekend!

Today's SCS challenge is to use beads.

I used a TLC Creates sentiment and a coloring pages image.  Beads are in my hearts.
