CCEE and Stampin B's Challenges

CCEE Challenge  - CCEE1043
Hostess - Shirley Quarry
Challenge - CAS card


All images and sentiments are from Flourishes.  CAS cards are a real challenge for me, but I always feel so good when I feel like I accomplished one.  And....today I must say I am happy with the results.

Now....be sure to go check out the dynamic CAS creations of the rest of the team at the CCEE blog.

I  am also enteriing this into Flourishes weekly challenge which this week asks you to make a card without buttons and bows.


Stampin B's Challenge
Hostess - Brenda
Challenge - Thanksgiving card using pumpkins
Thanksgiving was our goal in the creative process this week and we were to have pumpkins on our cards.  I used my new fav layout again to create this one.  I used a variety of leaf stamps to create the horizontal panel and embossed it with 'coppery' embossing powder.  The pumpkin image is from an individual stamp that I cannot put my hands on right now......but if you want to know, just ask in a comment and I will search for it and get back to ya'. 

Be sure to stop by the Stampin B's blog to check out the Thanksgiving creations of the rest of the very talented team.'
