It's Another CCEE and Stampin B's Day!!!! (plus some)

Happy Cinco de Mayo !!!

Once again, I was able to combine my two Thursday challenge teams' cards. 

Shirley is our hostess for the CCEE Stampers Challenge this month and she challenged us to make a Cinco de Mayo card.....using bright colors, maybe a chihuahua card, or anything to celebrate that day!!!  I obviously went with the colors AND the celebration.  So that is the reason for the drinks.....I would imagine quite a few Margaritas or such are consumed at such a celebration!!!

Faith is our hostess for the Stampin B's Challenge team.  She asked us to use glitter, Flower Soft, or liquid applique.   I didn't think I'd want my drinks to be fuzzy with Flower Soft, or foaming up with the applique, but.....I don't do glitter!!!  (I have enough trouble with my peepers...don't need to add glitter to my eyes.  PLUS.....I am dangerous with glitter.....just ask Mothermark, Traci, peggysue, and Minister's Wife!!!)  So....you are wondering....what did she use?????  I used a gel pen which has glitter in it that doesn't fly around.  It was used on each drink and flower. 

Please use the links below to be sure to see the fab designs by the rest of these fabulously talented teams.

AND....here is the some more......

I had some fun with this week's SCS Sketch Challenge.  And...in total I created three cards using that sketch.  One of the cards is also for the Timeless Tuesday Flourishes Challenge which was to use an image that would appeal to a young person.  I think the first card with the Flourishes silhouette does that.  The two cards that follow are the others done for the Sketch Challenge.


This card uses an image and sentiment from Innovative Stamp Creations.


This card used an image from the Greet the Day with Gerber set from Mark's Finest Papers.

Ooooh, I see Joanne, you are the deep thinker of the group. Using a glitter pen for the drinks. Now, why didn't I think of that considering the flower soft drove me nuts and it looks like a bomb hit it. Your card is truly lovely with the quadruple border punching, nestie and fabulous ribbon!!

Stamp city....you are putting out the beauties, Joanne. Wow! Now, I am curious about you and the glitter. I know why you don't use it and understand, but apparently there was some disaster that these named women know about. LOL

All your cards all awesome and I love each one. I want to say how much I enjoy your kind, uplifting comments on my cards. You make a girl feel good.
