CCEE Gets Sketchie and Stampin B's Honor Mom

CCEE Challenge -- Getting Sketchie!!!!

This week ends my month as the CCEE hostess, so I thought a sketch was in order.  I think sketches are my favorite type of challenge.  We hope you will play along.  Be sure to use the Mr. Linky on the CCEE blog so others will be able to see your creation using the sketch. You will also be able to check out the fabulous creations by the rest of the team.  If you post to SCS, please use the keywork CCEE1017.

Here is the card I created.

The palm tree stamp is by Stampendous, while the sentiment is by Hero Arts.  I used a mask technique to create the sun and used sponging along a torn paper to create my sky.  I forgot to write down the info on the 'beach' stamp.  The ribbon is from Mark's Finest Papers.

The Stampin B's Challenge -- Honoring Moms
Mother's Day cards were the goals of the Stampin B's  team this week.  I used an image from SU to create my card.  I finally used some of my colored embossed powders I just HAD TO HAVE at a convention last year.....I love the monochromatic look....what do you think?????  Be sure to check out the cards of the other Stampin B's at the B's blog.

Now take this chance to get your Mother's Day cards made early.....when posting to SCS, please use the keyword stampinb.

AND.....just in case you are many challenges, so little time.......well....why not make a Stampin' B's Mother's Day card using the sketch from the CCEE and you will have done two challenges in one AND have a Mother's Day card ready to go.  Is that good thinkin' or what????

Love your palm tree and the beautiful colors you have chosen. Beautiful coloring and bow. Great sketch.

Your stampin B card is pretty, too, love the embossing folder, too.

I have even a better idea! Why don't you send me these beautiful cards and I won't have to make my own? Snort!
These are both beautiful! Love the vibrant turquoise and yellow combo with that luscious ribbon in your CCEE sketch card, and I love the monochromatic pinks in your exquisite Mother's Day card! I haven't seen that embossed bg before and it's fabulous!
