Today's post is bittersweet ~
and I will let you read the words from the CCEE Stampers
Before we get to Maryann's challenge below, I (Frances) wanted to update you about our challenge group.
Sadly I have to let you know, that this will be our final challenge here on this blog. After over 15 years of lots of fun challenges, it's time to say goodbye! I was fortunate to be one of the foundation members of this challenge group, which started in July 2007 over on Splitcoast Stamper ... there were eight of us. We called ourselves ... Cheers & Challenges Eclectic Ensemble which later got shortened to CCEE Stampers. When we first started our challenge group there weren't many if any others around, now there are so many. We have had a lot of fun over the years, and a big thanks to all our current Design Team members for playing along each week and taking turns issuing the challenges each month.
Thank you also for those of you who have also played along with us over the years, we love that you play along with us.
Thank you, Frances, for your leadership, challenges and FUN!
Although I've only been on board for a few years,
it has been the highlight of my weekly paper crafting each Thursday :)
I don't have any stamps in my stash that meet this week's request
so I will show you my latest Christmas card
featuring one of my favorite Santa stamps of all time :)
This is the Santa Collage from Rubber Stampede
and I've nestled him into a window frame to showcase the look.
It's truly a gorgeous stamp!
Be sure to hop on over to the CCEE blog
and see what the design team created with their final cards :)
Thank you for joining me today
and I'll see you 'round the 'net!
