CCEE1509 Inlaid Die Cuts

Sabrina challenged us to a technique today, Inlaid Die cuts.  You can find the directions at SCS under tutorials.  Here's mine:

I used scraps of matching blues to make this birthday card for my cousin's little boy who will be 6.  The whale is from SU, and I added a PTI "HELLO", and an oval nestie.  The face is done with a googlie eye and marker.  Please join us!

CCEE1508 The Moon

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, the challenge from Sabrina is to feature the moon.

Here's mine:

Inside it says, "Don't worry if you're making waves simply being yourself.  The moon does it all the time".  (Scott Stabile)

Oh Dear!

Here is my dear and sweet husband, snow blowing with a bad cold, bad throat, and a temperature of 101, and a cough that kept him up all night.  We are having more snow tomorrow.  Hardly fair.

He is 6'4" tall...can you imagine how deep our snow is???????????

Hot Tub and Pool?

There is a hot tub and a  pool under all this snoow.  The fence is six feet high, so that gives you a pretty good idea of the depth.  This month we have had over 100 inches of snow.  Enough already!!!

CCEE1507 Pearls

The Finnish word for February is "helmiku" which means "month of the pearl'.  That's  our challenge for this week.  We may use a pearl technique, liquid pearls, or real pearls.

I used pearls on the stick pin, the umbrella, and on the corners of the card.  The image is from A Day For Daisies and is water colored.  Please join us, and come back again next week!

CCEE1506 Royal

Our hostess for the month of February is Sabrina Friel.  she reminds us that February 6th, 1952 was the day Queen Elizabeth ascended to the throne.  She challenged us to make a card featuring crowns or royal images (and that playing cards could work for this too).

Here's mine:

As you can see, I used an embossing folder of the Queen of Hearts, and a little stamp for the ticket.  I think this makes a nice Valentine as well!  Please join us.

I'm the WINNER!

Classy Cards n Such is a new site for me.  They have a challenge every week, and this was the first time I entered.........and WON!  I need to thank my friend, Shirley, for passing along the information.

Here's the card I made for their LETTER IT challenge, a shaker card.  I laid the card down to take the photo, so all the beads wouldn't be in the bottom.

Thanks for looking, and you can visit them HERE for this coming week's challenge.
