Thursday Challenges......

Shirley challenged the CCEE Stampers to a Columbus Day related challenge.  The theme is wide, but must be connected in some way to the Columbus Day holiday.  I chose the theme of ecean/navigation and made a lighthouse card.  It has been a longggg time since I got a lighthouse stamp out.  This one is from the now defunct Cornish Heritage Farms.

Be sure to check out the rest of the Columbus Day related creations at the CCEE Stampers Blog.

The Stampin B's were challenged to use birds, birds, birds.  I used a fab dove punch by EK Success, along with a border punch by MS.  I added some embossing, a bit of coloring (berries and leaves), and a bow.
We hope you will play along with us this week.  You can find inspiration at the Stampin B's Blog.

Gorgeous! Oh my goodness, Joanne, so glad I am here to see your Stampin B's card because it just reminded me that I am quite sure I have that dove punch. Forgot that, and I love it.
Thanks for the wonderful 'B's' challenge today...I loved it, being a bird lover.
