A Lil' Behind!

Greetings to you all ... are you all ready for another CCEE Stampers challenge?

This week our challenge is a supply challenge. This is a challenge we do each month ... how it works is that one of the CCEE members sends everyone on our team a number of supplies and normally some instructions too for us to create our cards. This month Cindy Motherway organized our supplies for us.

Heather the owner of H & M Stamps was kind enough to send Cindy enough of "A Lil' Behind" stamp sets to send to each of the CCEE girls .... and this is what we are using for our challenge today.

Dawn who was organizing the challenges for this month also added an additional clause to this challenge which was to use chipboard somewhere on our card.

So now it is your turn to play ... if you don't have this stamp set ... play along with what you have ... maybe you have some other stamp that is "butt" related but if you don't anything will do ... just make sure you do use the chipboard piece. If you create a card come back here and include a link to your card in the comments section. Don't forget if you upload to SCS to include the keywords CCEEC.

Now let's see what everyone came up with this week:

Keeping You in Suspense!

Hi again everyone. Are you ready for another of our CCEE Stamper challenges. You are ... OK so I won't keep you in suspense any longer!

This week Dawn has given us another fun challenge. We were to use Beate's Suspension Card Tutorial to create a suspension project (it could be a card or an ornament). Our card had to have a Christmas or Winter theme.

Do you want to play along too ... I know we would all love you to. All you need to do is create your suspension project and come back here and add your link to the comments section of this post. If you upload your card to SCS please use the keyword CCEEC.

CNFS - Jstarbright

Howdy everyone ... hope you all had a wonderful weekend and managed to get a little stamping done. It is that time of the week again when the CCEE Stampers get together here to share our cards we created for our weekly challenge.

This week our challenge is one of our favorites .. the Catchy Name Featured Stamper challenge ... we pick a name of someone on SCS who has a catchy name and then we create our cards around that Stampers name.

This month the CNFS is Jstarbright ... Dawn who is in charge of the challenges this month asked Joni (Jstarbright) some of her favorite things and this is what our cards are based on this week.

Our cards had to have:

  1. Patterned Paper

  2. Birds

  3. A Star

  4. Buttons & Brads

  5. Bonus ..... she collects covered bridges and loves listening to music ... so if you can put a covered bridge and/or music on it there might be a prize *wink*

Now I wouldn't be fooled about #5 I doubt there is any prize haha! ... that is just my CCEE friends fooling around again!

Want to play along ... I know we would love it if you would! Create your card using the first 4 items in the list above and then come back here and link your card in the comment section of this post so that we can check out your card. If you upload your card to SCS, don't forget to include the keyword CCEEC.

BTW ... J is for Joni .... Star is her middle name and Bright goes with star!

OK .... now let's see what the CCEE Stampers came up with this week.

Some one stole my covered bridge right off my card and no one sent me the memo about buttons and brads! How come I always get picked on?
