Stampin B's and CCEE Challenges

Can you believe that ONCE AGAIN I was able to combine my two Thursday challenge team cards.  Maybe I should play the lottery!!!

CCEE10   Challenge
Hostess -- Tosh

Stampin B's Challenge
Hostess -- Faith

Okay.....I have to admit that I took liberties with the CCEE sketch this week.  However, it was not was my weak peepers at work.  In the stamp cave, my printout of the sketch was very soft in color and I didn't catch all the color variations. That is my story and I am sticking to it.  I also went with a square card instead of an A-2 card.  We really are pretty flexible, so this is a VERY FLEXIBLE use of the sketch.  Now that I have noticed my errors, I will definitely try this sketch again in ALL ITS GLORY.  However, if someone is giving me the BUZZER, please at least play a HAPPY tune with it!!!!

And as long as I am apologizing, may as well also note that after I posted this card I got to thinking about the Stampin B's part of this and I may have goofed there too.  Wonder if I was supposed to create my OWN scene.  Oh well....there are no rules so how can I be accused of breaking them....LOL!!!

Now....forget about my foibles....and move on the the wonders of both these teams by using the following links.  AND...please play along with us.......we love to see what YOU create!!!

I love how you're able to combine challenges with such ease! Square, rectangle or round - you nailed the sketch perfectly! Your card is just gorgeous!

This is gorgeous, Joanne! I just love your bright-colored boats. A wonderful scene :)

Whee! You and I are on the same wavelength! I have a port hole and you've got the boats! Awesome coloring, your cards always amaze me!

Color variations? We were suppose to vary our colors? Looks like I goofed, too. Awwww, Tosh isn't around to scold us, so we'll be okay, buddy. Your card is far too beautiful to be chastised anyway.

As I was doing the blog hop, I happened to notice this card and had a laugh reading your story. Good thing there are no rules at the 'B'.
Now, I can't say what will happen at the CCEE but I'm wishing you good luck. LOL Your card is just beautiful so you should be able to get away with most anything. I love those colorful boats.

Because you are soooo wonderful, we will forgive all the foibles, however, because there are no rules....I say what's to forgive...kick up your heals and create what you want...yeaaaaa!!! This is GORGEOUS, Joanne!!!! I just love the beautifully colored image and what awesome piercing!!!! Fabulous work here, gf!!!

I don't see any faults here...and I think your card is lovely in color and design!! You did great, Joanne!!

Tosha Leyendekker said...

I love that boat scene Joanne!! It's one of my faves!! And I LOVE how you colored the boats and used it in this sketch!! Now as for the sketch....hmmmm....since you were so gracious to me with my floral omitance (not a word I'm sure) previously, how could I ever chastise you for doing your own take on a sketch. Super job my friend!!
