Back Times Three

I certainly hope everyone had a great Christmas holiday.  I am back today with 3 postings in one, so if you are looking for a certain challenge....keep scrolling down until you find it.

1st up is:
Challenge: Anything Goes

I used "Penguin's Little Letter" by Meljens.  I happened to win this image for free over at the Meljen's Facebook page.  Woo Hoo...great image for FREE!! 

Start the New Year off right and play along with us at CCAYR.

*Remember if you do 5 cards this month following the challenge, your name will go into a draw for a prize at the end of JANUARY! (this challenge CAN be combined with any other blog or forum challenges that you do this month.)

Cardstock: White and red
Patterned Paper: Red Dots (Recollections), Candy Cane Stripes (The Paper Company)
Stamps: Peguin's Little Letter digital Stamp (Meljens), Warm Wishes (Michael's)
Misc: Red polka dot ribbon, red pearls, Copic markers, Stardust gel pen (Sakura), Apron Lace punch (Martha Stewart).


2nd Up:
Challenge:  Thinking of You
Sponsor: Stitchy Bear Stamps

We were given several images to work with and I chose, Chloe's Ballet Lesson by Lil' Diva Stamps.  It was a nice change to work with a pastel creation and something non-Christmas/Winter.  This image is absolutely adorable and with 2 granddaughters, I am sure to use it over and over again.

As part of the challenge last week we began collecting cards to give to patients at Brigham & Women's Hospital in Boston, Mass. So this week we have decided to continue our challenge for one more week. So what we would like you to do is to create a card with the theme of THINKING OF YOU. You can also use HELLO, JUST FOR YOU & JUST A NOTE as sentiments on your card. We are asking that you please refrain from using the sentiment of get well. As soon as you have created your card and entered it into the challenge, we are asking you to write a note of encouragement inside your card and address the envelope to "ANY PATIENT" and then place the card into an envelope addressed to Stacy:
Stacy Walker

15 Willow Way

Swanville, Maine 04915


When your package is on it's way please email Stacy at to let her know that you have sent your card. Stacy will be delivering the cards to Brigham & Women's Hospital on January 30th so you have plenty of time to enter and get your card(s) to her. The cards will then be handed out to the patients in their transplant wards. Our hope is that when they open up the cards it will help brighten their day.


Cardstock:  White and pink
Patterned paper:  The Glittery Sweet Matstack (DCWV)
Stamps:  Chloe's Ballet Lesson (Lil' Diva Stamps), Sentiment (Stamps of Life)
Misc:  Copic markers, corner rounder punch, crocheted flower, button, brad, felt flower (SU!), Doily Lace edge punch (Martha Stewart).
