CCEE1726 Fairy Day

For her last, Frances challenged us to include fairies on our cards (Saturday the 24th was Fairy Day).

Isn't this just the sweetest image?  I've been saving it for quite a while, and so finally it's on the cover (with all the mushrooms) as an anniversary card for my dear husband.  This year it's our 54th!!!  

I hope you like what I did, and that you will join us with a card of your own.  Please post your card HERE so we can enjoy it too!

CCEE1725 Music

Frances tells us yesterday was World Music Day - Music Day and Make Music Day.  So let's include something music related on our cards this week.

I stamped a music bg, distressed it and added it to my cardstock.  Then I glued a doily onto the top, adding a punched strip.  I printed off a decoupage of a candy box, and it has three layers. I took the photo of it on an angle so you could see the layers.  Finished it off with a saying from Stampin' Up.

Thanks for joining me today.  Please enter a card of your own, and send it to our blog HERE .

CCEE1724 Flip-flop

According to the Days of the Year web site, Friday the 16th of June is Flip-Flop Day.  So for our card this week, Frances challenges us to make Flip-Flop cards.  That can be the flip-flops that are shoes, or Flip Flop cards, or you may have another flip flop idea.  Whatever works for you.

This is the outside.......and here's the flip side:

I love the soft green as a bg, and hope you do too.

CCEE1723 Ocean

Today is World Oceans Day.  Frances has challenged us to create something that reminds us of the ocean.

This little girl from Rubbernecker Stamps has picked some beach plum flowers growing by the side of the path leading to the beach.  They are pretty blooms, and the jelly made from the beach plums is delicious.  When I think of the Atlantic Ocean, which is where I grew up, I think of those flowers and jellies!!  There is also a sailboat in the distance, and I've always loved seeing the sails!!

Please join us this week, and every week.  Upload your card to our blog HERE.

Frances is our hostess for the month of June.  Here is her challenge:

"The 2nd of June is Doughnut Day so for our challenge today create something that has some type of "hole" in it.  It could be a doughnut, cheese, a fancy fold card with a hole....anything."

Here's mine:

My Hole is actually three holes........A large one for the ball, and the finger holes as well.  This is what the card looks like closed, and here it is open with white behind it so you can see it really is cut out.

Please join us, and be sure to link your card to our blog HERE.
