CCEE and Stampin B's Challenges....Come Play with Us!!

CCEE Challenges -- CCEE1037
Hostess - Frances
Challenge - Pirates

The parrot/pirate, sentiment, and skull/bones come from a Cornish Heritage Farms set.  So glad I got this one long before that company decided to close.  The branch and leaves come from a Changito set (I forget the company).  The gingham ribbon (one of my current favs) comes from Mark's Finest Papers.

Be sure to stop in at the CCEE blog to see the fabulous and unique creations by the other talented members of the team.

Stampin B's #76
Hostess - Vicky Gould
Challenge - Picnic/food
Vicky wanted us to think of picnic food and I think this Bugaboo image surely fits the bill. It just makes me smile and think of all the young ones who just enjoy a picnic and all the fun that goes along with it.  I am amazed at the energy of the little ones......and the JOY they bring us all!!!

I think you can pretty much see what I did. So I will join you in checking out what the rest of the team has done at the Stampin B's blog, 'cuz I know you will be dazzled.

and.........remember we play well with others and would love to see your creations in both of these challenges!!!

Joanne, these cards are both so adorable. Love your parrot.. he has a look that makes me wonder if he is a shyster. LOL No, he's just too cute for that. The picnic card is so much fun. Believe me, I know how much energy that little ones have...I'm finding out fast.

Love your picnic-themed card, Joanne!! That image was perfect for this challenge. And gingham (for tablecloths, of course!) was the perfect choice! Did you get those great gingham brads at Target? I have the same ones LOL!!!

I really like both of your cards. Cute and colorful parrot. Hope he doesn't have to walk the plank.

The picnic card brings back memories of when I was the kid going on the picnic. It was so much more fun then, I didn't have to make the preparations. :)
