Challenge #74 ~ Dogs & Cats!

Hello friends, welcome to CC&CC.  This challenge we are going to celebrate our furry friends, Dogs & Cats.  What would we do without pets in our lives?  It would be a much less happier place I am sure.  They are loving and (mostly, lol) undemanding.  They become members of our families and bring us countless joys.  So join us and show your love of these adorable creatures!

Our scheduled sponsors for the next two challenges have closed their companies, leaving us a bit in the lurch.  But, have no fear!  I am putting up a prize for each challenge I know that you will enjoy!  How about a new  cutting die from Sizzix!  It can be used with nearly any machine, you just have to adjust your plates to the proper thickness.  This one is called "Flower, 3-D & vine.  You will be able to make your own beautiful roses.  It's sure to be a fun addition to your crafting supplies.

Our ladies have done some adorable cards for your inspiration!  Have a look and then get to crafting and join us!

Lastly,I am so sad to announce that our DT member, Sam, is stepping down.  She has had the great fortune of being asked to take on some new WONDERFUL opportunities!  Offers she would be CRAZY not to accept (her words and mine too, lol!).  We will miss her terribly, but wish her all the best in her new ventures.  I KNOW she will be a BIG success!  We love you Sam, and are so happy to have shared your talent and friendship here at CC&CC..

Challenge #73 ~ Vintage

Here we go again with a new challenge.  We hope you are enjoying the themes we have been doing as much as we do.  This theme is a pretty popular one, and can be done in a lot of styles ~ VINTAGE.  I love the look of the aged and old fashion designs.  But a lot of times it is done with more modern images, and they are lovely too.  So it's up to you to pick the time frame, just be sure to make it look "vintage"!

The images our DT are using are from the AMAZING artist 
Tammy Siemers Thompson of 
A Day For Daisies.  

Her artwork is absolutely beautiful!  She has created so many lovely images to choose from, all in her own fabulous, unique style.  When you visit you are sure to find the perfect digi for any occasion.

The DT have really outdone themselves this challenge!  Their cards are all like a stunning piece of art!  These gals always create from the heart, and it shows!

Challenge #72 Winner ~ BINGO

All the entries were amazing!  But as I have said before, we only get to choose one prize winner.  And that person will receive 3 FREE digis of their choice from Scribbles Designs.  So here is our winner!!

Using Die Cut, Green, Lace

CONGRATS!  Please email me, Joanne, at and I will help you claim your digis.  And don't forget to grab your winners badge to port on your blog.  Have fun with your images, and happy crafting!
