CCEE1034 and Stampin' B's #73 Challenges had to happen sometime.  I am pleased to say that this week you get two separate cards for these challenges. 

Stampin B's Challenge -- Western Square Card
Hostess -- Vicky

When I was creating this, this was my one and only western image stamp.  After making it, I realized I do have some cacti stamps I could have used AND a set from MFP arrived which is a western themed set.  So I am all set for the next western!!!!  This is an unmounted stamp I bought ages ago....if anyone happens to know the company, please put it in a comment so I can identify it next time.

Now be sure to go to the Stampin B's Blog to see the fab creations by the rest of the team!!!

CCEE Challenge -- Sketch
Hostess -- Tosh

This week, Tosh gave us another fab sketch AND once again I tweaked it a bit.  I used all the same color for my elements to the left of the card.  Sorry, Tosh!!!  It just wouldn't work for me the other!!!!

I used these snowflakes from an old set by SeeD's.  I learned a good lesson making this card.......don't dry emboss with your CB AFTER you have heat causes some of the embossing to flake off!!!  However, I decided it just made the snowflakes a little more flakey.....and that's okay in my book!!!!  (Once again I forgot to write down the name of the company for the sentiment......just slips my mind every time....sorry!!!)

The CCEE'ers would love for you to stop in to the CCEE team blog to check out their fabulous work.

And ....remember you can visit the blogs of the individual team members of both these fabulous teams by clicking on their links in my sidebar.

Your western card is so cute, I like that image.
Your CCEE card is beautiful. Great choice of colors. How fun that you used the snow flake theme with it and the sweet sentiment.
