CCEE1605 Cold Weather Activity

Lynn is the new hostess for this month's CCEE Stampers challenges.  Today she asked us to make a card depicting some winter activity.   I've lived in Florida for 48 years, so I have very little recent history of "winter activities."  However, when I was a kid, one of those activities was ice skating.  Of course, I never looked like this skater.


Be sure to check out the CCEE Stampers blog to see what other winter activities have been mentioned.

Scor-Pal Challenge -- Pink or Blue

The Scor-Pal Blog Team was given a color choice for this month's "More Than One Score" challenge -- pink or blue.  With those choices, a baby card was the obvious way to go.  I chose blue and made a curved side-step card, using images from an MFP Stamp Shop set called Bundle of Joy.

Here it is the last day of fun at the beach!  My card today is an easel card, but it's a variation on the standard easel card.  I had seen one done like this on Splitcoaststampers some time ago and thought it was amazing.  Mine might not be "amazing," but it was fun to create. 
 

 
The stamped image and sentiment are from the stamp set Island Life.

Continuing with my plan to create cards other than the standard A2 card, today I am bringing you a Criss Cross card.   I used some patterned paper that's been in my drawer for several years on this card.

Here is the panel tucked inside the "envelope."   I added a couple of K & Company stickers "under the sea."  You can put a plain white panel on the back for a hand-written message -- telling everyone what a great time you're having at the beach!


The stamped image and sentiment are from the stamp set Oh, Crab.

I decided that all my cards for this month's blog hop will be cards other than a standard A2 card.  My card for today is a Side Step Card.  I Googled "sea scene" to get the picture of the ocean for my tall section and used some sandy patterned paper for the two steps. 
 
 
The stamped images and sentiment are from the stamp set Silly Shells.
