Sending Sunshine with the CCEE and Stampin B's

Well.....this week I am the hostess for both the CCEE challenge and the Stampin B's challenge, so I combined my card to meet both challenges.  The focal stamp is one by Bugawumps Stamps.  The sentiment is an unmounted stamp.  I created the sun with my inverted scallop Nesties and did the sky with a sponge and a strip of ripped paper with Cool Caribbean ink.  (NOW.....why isn't SU bringing THAT in-color back????)

April 15 is tax day for most here in the US today, so not many people are wearing smiles....especially if they waited til the last minute to mail in their tax forms.  So, for the Stampin B's I challenged them to make a card with a sun and an encouraging sentiment for all those 'depressed' taxpayers.  For the CCEEer's, I challenged them to make a 'get well' card for all those taxpayers who feel a bit 'sick' today with the amount of money paid to the IRS. 

Hope you enjoy the creations of both teams this week.  Please visit the Stampin B's Blog and the CCEE blog to see the work of the teams.  Please also use my sidebar links to visit the blogs of the individual team members.  These talented ladies will dazzle you for sure with their creations.

I have been crazy busy this week with doctor appointments and outings with friends (kind of a mix of good and evil events....lol)!!!  And...this continues today(Thursday) as well. 

Wishing you a calm and successful week.  May there be sunshine in your life....either the warms, sunny, outdoors kind, or the warmth of a happy heart.

Hugs,
Joanne/jojot
