Sesame Street Influences the CCEE Stampers


Our hostess for November is Frances.  Here iis her challenge for the CCEE Stampers this week.....

The 10th November is Sesame Street Day, this year celebrates 46 years since the show started. Create a card the is inspired by this show … You could feature any of the characters from the show; something related to a character eg garbage bin or cookies; or feature a letter of the alphabet etc.

Well..... I had nothing I could relate to Sesame Street, so I went with a sentiment that I think relays the 'attitude' of the Sesame Street community.  The color yellow also reminds me of Big Bird.  The actor who plays Big Bird lives in a town nearby, so that is the character we know the most about as he has been active in local events through the years.

Be sure to stop in and visit the CCEE Blog as I have a feeling that the other team members were able to do this challenge in a more literal way.

this fits perfectly ... did you know that the theme song for Sesame Streets starts out with ....

Sunny Day
Sweepin' the clouds away
On my way to where the air is sweet
Can you tell me how to get,
How to get to Sesame Street


So this works perfectly for our challenge

Like Frances, I started singing as soon as I saw your card, Joanne! "Sunny day, sweepin' the clouds away!!" How perfect for today's challenge!

Wow, I had that same problem at my house, and love the smart solution you came up with. The sentiment goes well with the idea of the lyrics of the SS theme song.

Yup. Just as Frances said, the show started with Sunny Day.........perfect card for that, and for The Big Guy, Big Bird!! Great job!

How cool is it that you know Big Bird! Love your card, BTW!

I think we're split about halfway, those who actually used Sesame Street characters and those of us who opted for the looser interpretation! I love your monochromatic card with that affirming and encouraging sentiment.
