You may or may not know that July 31 is the day that both Harry Potter and his creator, J. K. Rowling celebrate their birthdays. Today the challenge is to create a card or project that honors the remarkable literary character, Harry Potter.

Please join us and link your creation up using the Inlinkz tool at the bottom of this post. If you upload to another site such as Splitcoaststampers, please add CCEE1531 to your keywords.

               Check out the terrific designs from the other team members over at the CCEEStampers blog.

I've not read any of the Harry Potter books, but did a little research on the books and when I saw "flying keys" I was inspired to do this card.

Just Add Ink #272

This multilayered butterfly is a stamp set from Kitchen Sink Stamps. The fern is from a retired Stampin' Up set, and the sentiment is from Verve. This card is made for the Just Add Ink Challenge #272.  The minute I saw the challenge was to stamp a butterfly, I could not resist the challenge!

Lynn is again our hostess and her challenge to us was to use the watercolor bokeh method.  I used this sentiment from Our Daily Bread to be the focal point of this card and added a few sequins and pearls and added this diecut border.

Hope you join us on this fun technique this week and link it over on the CCEEStampers blog.

For the JUGS 302 color challenge this week. I found out today that a friend I grew up with in my youth is facing breast cancer. I made this for her and since she lives hundreds of miles away, I plan to bombard her with cards to help her keep her spirits up.  I used an old retired SU stamp for the flower and a Verve stamp for the sentiment. The design papers are from my scrap pile, so this was a card from the stash! I love those kinds.

The Texas heat has finally hit after a rather mild June. Lynn, our hostess this month, has given us a chance  to get a break from the heat by creating an underwater scene. I used an underwater image from Klonz and the sentiment from Our Daily Bread Designs.  I had a great time mixing some of my favorite blues onto this panel.

Come join in the fun by linking your card to the CCEEStampers blog, and while you are there check out the other underwater scene shared by the team.

Tomorrow is national Cheer Up the Lonely Day so Lynn is challenging us this week to create a card of friendship and encouragement to mail to someone you know who lives alone. I know it will bring them joy to hear that you are thinking of them!

Please join us in bringing joy and happiness to someone you know who needs it. Link your card up using the Inlinkz tool at the bottom of this post and then drop your card in the mail. If you upload to another site such as Splitcoaststampers, please add CCEE1528 to your keywords.

Thanks for stopping by today to see the creations of the CCEE Design Team and to join us in this week's challenge!
My card was made with a Power Poppy digital and a Power Poppy stamp for the sentiment. I love these pretty camellias.

Christmas Card Challenge #31

I have set a self goal of making 5 Christmas cards each month. I am a few shy of being caught up with that pace, so I decided to use a little extra motivation and today it came from the Christmas Card Challenge found here.  This challenge is a color challenge:
