CCEE2248 ~ Time Clocks/Farewell ....

Hi friends!

Today's post is bittersweet ~

and I will let you read the words from the CCEE Stampers

 founder below:

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!

Take care!



  1. Glad to see I wasn’t the only one to make a Christmas card lol. thank you for being part of our Design Team these past years, it’s been fun seeing your wonderful cards each week.

  2. What a stunning image Kelly, and a wonderful card. I hear your sadness on the demise of the challenge - I have seen your stamping go up several notches since you have been on the team.

  3. Kelly, your final CCEE card is such a beauty. I love that Santa stamp (he's in my stash, too). Well done not just today but on Thursdays throughout your time on the CCEE team!

  4. That Santa is my favorite one as well. I try to use him at least once a year. Love your card.

  5. This classic Santa will forever be my favorite, Kelly!! How great to see it here because it continues to stand strong through the test of "TIME". I've loved having you stamping with us at the CCEE Stampers. Your beautiful work is always an inspiration to me!!

  6. That is my favorite Santa as well. Kelly, your youth has always inspired me. Yeah, you might be a grandmother, but you are so energetic and have such a busy personal and creative life that is inspiring to the rest of us. Thanks for coming aboard for these last few years at CCEE.

  7. I always regret not buying this stamp, you've used him here beautifully.

  8. This is a beautiful Santa image and your card is so lovely, Kate x

  9. Such fabulous Santa stamp! You shown it so well! Cheerful and beautiful card as always!!

  10. That is a fabulous Santa image and really doesn't need any coloring especially with the gorgeous frame around it.

  11. I so love this Santa image too! And, your card is so pretty. I will miss the challenges from your group--they were so unique! Thanks for sharing for so many years!
