Everyone needs a pep talk once in a while...

Two fabulous ladies of Crop Circles, Natasha Connolly and CoraLee Kilfoy, posted daily challenges for us members during the month of February. 
I'm going to show a few of my pages!
I didn't complete all the challenges (nor am I posting all I completed) as I was busy visiting with my sister and baby nephew. 
(Wait a minute! That coffee tag looks familiar! See it HERE).

The recipe for these are HERE.

CCC # 027 Tags Challenge: Use a Negative

Hi All!
The March (really, are we halfway through March already?!) Tag Challenge is up
Forget focusing on the positives, it's all about the negatives!
I bet this is the only time/area I will give this advice.
Using the leftover, negative pieces from die-cuts and punches is right up my alley,
and a trick I have been using for years.

This tag has a special home, on a special bag, for a special present, for a super special event this Summer.

Now head on over to www.catherineandcathycreate.com and start entering the challenges!

CCC#025 March challenge

Hey All!

Time again for another challenge at www.catherineandcathycreate.com!
Have you been uploading your projects?

This month's challenge is Luck o' the Irish, inspired by St. Patrick's Day.

As you've probably guessed by my past postings, 
we don't make a big fuss over some occasions. 

We don't really do much for St. Patrick's day 
besides the kid's school projects and wearing green. 

That doesn't mean I can't play along. 

I made this card for an upcoming family birthday.

I must comment on how nervous I was embossing and sewing the gold foil paper, but I LOOOOOOOVVVVE the result!

The challenge is about using elements inspired by, not specific to. 

Rainbows, gold, green, yellow, shamrocks, drinks, etc. on a project qualifies! 
That means you can't count yourself out of the challenge just because you are like me! 

Dig through your stash and create something (a card, tag, layout, anything) and upload to the March challenge at www.catherineandcathycreate.com
There's another monthly prize up for grabs, so don't delay!
