Challenge #79 ~ Use A Charm

Hello, and welcome to CC&CC, we are so happy to have you stop by!  And you picked a great time to visit!  We are so proud to introduce 3 NEW DT members!  Please help me welcome 3 ladies who are talented card makers and crafters who share our passion for all things paper!  


We are so excited to be adding to our DT and look forward to having them with us.  Please be sure to check out their lovely blogs and also to read their bios which are posted on the "Our Fab Design Team" page listed above.

Now on to our new challenge!  We are asking you to add a bit of something extra on your your card ~ "Use A Charm".  We can't wait to see what you come up with!

We do not have a sponsor this challenge, as unfortunately another one of our sponsors have closed their doors.  That is 3 sponsors in the past month and a half that are not doing challenges any more, and we sure hate to see them go.  As a result, I will be offering a prize of a lovely butterfly die from Cheery Lynn Designs with a value of $10.

It sure would be a nice addition to your die cut collection!

Let's take a look at the wonderful cards our FAB DT have done to give you some inspiration.  I am so lucky to have each and EVERY one of them here with me at CC&CC!

So there you have it for this time.  Get busy and create!  Then come share your card with us.  We LOVE to see what you do!

Challenge #77 ~ Halloween!

Pumpkins, cider and falling leaves
Bubbling cauldrons and gnarly trees
Scary masks and candles bright
The perfect setting for Halloween Night!

Welcome to our Halloween challenge, so glad to have you stop by!
If you are anything like me, you love this time of year.  It's so much fun to be able to dress up in a costume and play like we did as children.  And I love to make Halloween cards, be it scary or cute.  So come join in and show us your Halloween spirit!

We are VERY pleased to welcome a new sponsor!  We know you are going to LOVE these digis.  Please say hello to RIck St. Dennis!  He is an artist, author, teacher of design, and stage designer. His drawings and paintings are in the collections of Diana Ross, Sandy Duncan, Sammy Davis Jr. and Jacqueline Onnasis amongst others

What AWESOME images he draws!  So many different styles and characters with such great details!  His images for Halloween are amazing!

We had soooooo much fun making these cards for you using Rick's images. They sure express the fun spirit of Halloween!

Here's wishing you all a fun and safe Halloween!
Happy Trick or Treating!
