The CCEE Stampers are back in full swing for the new year, and Frances Byrne is the January challenge hostess. For this first Thursday in January 2011, Frances challenged the team members (and you) to create a card/project with checks in our design. If you'd like to play along with us, you need to include checks of some type on your card .... be it a stamp which a check design; designer paper; embossing folder, ribbon etc.
For my card, I used some pretty purple checked designer paper I found in my stash. I also used it on my clear buttons so I could have a matching design on those.
I painted my Rubbernecker daisy images with Stickles, which happened to be a technique challenge issued by Joan Ervin on Splitcoaststampers (SCS) this week. I've included the link in case you'd like to check out Joan's tutorial on how to do this. I apologize for the poor photograph, but I find trying to capture the pretty dazzle in anything with sparkle to it difficult to do. I used Ranger's Lavender and Turquoise Stickles to paint my daisies.
I used this week's SCS sketch challenge by Roxie for my layout.
Please swing by our CCEE Stampers blog and take a moment to gaze upon the fabulous creations of my team mates: Joanne, Frances, Shirley, Cindy, and Tosh.
By the way, it is day #4 of my retirement, and I am so happy and thankful that I didn't have to drive to work since our roads are snow covered and slippery this morning!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
