Challenge #114 ~ Use A NUMBER On YOur Card

Greetings and a warm welcome to all of you.

This is a hard post for me, and a sad one too.  I have decided to close CC&CC.  It seems that it is getting harder and harder for me to enjoy sponsoring this blog.  I was going to spell out in black and what the exact reasons were, but as I wrote the words they seemed so harsh.  Let's just say, that when something you spend so much time and effort on ceases to be fun anymore, it's time to let it go and move on. . . .

I have had the wonderful pleasure of working with so may creative and generous ladies in the past 4 1/2 years.  I THANK THEM ALL!  We all know that we do this on our own time for the joy of creating.  It means a LOT to me that they took the time to support CC&CC and me.

AND TO ALL OF YOU!!!!  Your support of CC&CC week after week is heartwarming!  I thank you all for sharing your BEAUTIFUL cards with us. 
As our motto says, 
"Without YOU, WE wouldn't be here!".

So here we go for our final challenge.
Our sponsor is Fred, She Said.

They are giving our lucky winner a $10 gift certificate!

Let's take a look at the FAB creations that Judy and Diane have done for you for this challenge using images provided by Fred, She SaidBecause we received our images late, the other gals did not have time to create.  So a BIG THANX ladies for doing these!

Again, my thanx to all of you.

Challenge #113 ~ FANCY & Use Pink

So, lets get right to it shall we!
Here it is, so simple!  Just make a FANCY card and use PINK!

This challenge is with our great sponsor The Paper Shelter.
I love their images.  Not only do they have a great variety, are fun to color, but also a lot of them include printable, coordinated papers for your project.  It makes it so easy and fun.
Our lucky winner of this challenge will receive a $15 gift certificate to use on their site!  What fun you can have shopping with that!  So give it a go and join us for a chance to win this great prize.

Let's take a look at what our fab DT have done to inspire you using two different images from The Paper Shelter.

Challenge #112 ~ Girls of Summer

Well, I believe that summer has finally arrived!  Here in my part of Oregon we have been having some gorgeous days.  Warm sun, a light cool breeze and not too hot.  Perfect for all the things we love to do in summer.  So lets get our mojo working and create a card that shows off the GIRLS OF SUMMER!  There must be a female on your card and represent summer.  It should be a lot of fun for you!

We do not have a sponsor this week.  I'll spare you the loooooong story!  So to make up for that, I am offering a prize of a die by Impression Obsession.  It is a cute wheelbarrow that is sure to be fun to use in a garden scene.

Our gals on the DT came up some really adorable cards for your inspiration this challenge.  Take a look at their lovely creations.

Thanx so much for stopping by, and I hope you join our challenge and show us your Girls of Summer!

Nadja Robbins

Nadja was a DT member for over two years with CC&CC.  We became great blog buddies and friends.  Yesterday she lost her very LONG and HEROIC battle with cancer.  My heart breaks at the loss.  She left behind two very young sons, a loving husband, family and friends.  She made so many beautiful cards, and did so for as long as she could.  I mourn her passing and ask God to keep her is his loving arms.

Here are a few of the beautiful creations she made for us at CC&CC.

Nadja, you will be missed by so many, God Bless.
