Stampin B's and CCEE Challenges

Stampin B's #75
Hostess -- Lois
Challenge -- A color challenge of blue, green and pink
How could this image and sentiment not give you a smile??? This is a digital image from Bugaboo Stamps. I think you can pretty much see what I did. I used border punches, did some piercing, dry embossing, and colored with Copics. A rather simple card, but it just makes me smile.


Lois was our hostess and she picked the great color combo of blue, green, and pink. They are some of my favs, so that was easy enough. Now....let's see what YOU can do!!!!  Visit the Stampin B's Blog for details AND to see the fab creations of the rest of the team.

This card was also entered into Papercraft Star Challenge which was an inspiration photo -- with coffee!!!

CCEE Challenge -- CCEE1036
Hostess -- Frances
Challenge -- Teddy Bears
Frances was our CCEE hostess this week.  She challenged us to use our teddy bear stamps.  Even though I have been a teddy bear fan my whole life, I do not have too many stamps with that image.  However, this on is my fav....it is an old retired "Button Bear" from SU.  Isn't he just darling???  The sentiment was taken from another set....I think it was a Penny Black acrylic set.

Now this is going to be one cute and cuddly gallery, so head over to the CCEE Blog for some dazzling cuteness.

Remember -- both of these fabulous teams would love for you to play right along with us.  Just go to the team blogs for information.  We really do all play well with others!!!

Coming from a coffee addict, no, there is never life before coffee. LOL! Darling card, though. I like how you mixed the embossing folders for the different panels, and, of course, you always know how to work a color challenge.
Your teddy bear card is really cute, too. I love the sketch design you used on it.
Now, can we go get a cuppa joe?
