CCEE1817 - Poetry

Lois here with my final challenge of the month.  April is National Poetry Month, and today is Poem in Your Pocket Day.  I'm asking that you create a card using a poem as your inspiration. For my inspiration, I chose Joyce Kilmer's Trees.  And, of course, I used an image from Stampin' Up's set Lovely as a Tree on my card.  (Not too original, I know!)

CCEE 1816 -- National Bicycle Day

Lois here . . . continuing as hostess for the CCEE Stampers.  Today is Bicycle Day, so I'm asking you to put a bicycle on your card.  If you don't have a bicycle, use anything with wheels.  I have a confession to make:  I didn't learn how to ride a bicycle until I was an adult.  My husband taught me!

CCEE1815 - National Pet Day

Lois here, continuing as hostess for the CCEE Stampers this month.  There are many lists of "holidays" on the internet.  One of them listed yesterday (April 11th) as National Pet Day.  I asked the team to use a pet (dog, cat, bird, whatever) on their cards.  I chose an owl, Harry Potter's pet.

CCEE1814 - National Tartan Day

Hi, Lois here starting my month as hostess for the CCEE Stamper challenges.  Tomorrow is National Tartan Day.  I asked the team members to create a card using plaid.

I am a big fan of the Outlander series, both the books and the TV show.  National Tartan Day gave me the opportunity to use some stamps reminiscent of that series.

CCEE1813 Fun Folds

I can't believe my month of challenges has gone by so quickly, but here it is....my last challenge for this month.  I had a lot of fun coming up with and making my cards and hope you did too!

For my last challenge, please use a fun fold of your choice....one may be  your "go to" fold, or you may want to try something new.  That's what I decided to do.  I love easel cards and found a tutorial on You Tube to make a "Double Twisted Easel" card.  Pretty easy and unique.

Won't you join us in this challenge?  Please add CCEE1813 to keywords on splitcoaststampers and link back to this blog.  Lois is taking over for April and she's come up with some fun ones!  Stay tuned.
