W2CB #60: An Angel? Me?

Hi, everyone! Sybrina here with our last W2CB Challenge of 2018.

In December, it seems all our thoughts -- and actions -- turn to the holidays. While we adults try to cram 30-hours of tasks into 24-hour days, little ones try their very best to be good. With that in mind, this month's words come to us from 11-year-old Kid-Quote-kiddo Benjamin.

I'm an angel at Christmas time, but the rest of the year I'm the real me.

Sound like anyone you know? Let's see what our gals have for us this month. You'll see there are a few angel-specific interpretations, a kitty who just can't be good, a pup trying soooo very hard to be good, and a bunny whose thrown in the trying-to-be-good towel altogether... and is throwing snowballs instead.

Now, it's your turn to share your Benjamin-quote-inspired card/project with us for a chance to win this month's challenge. (And, yes, you can enter non-card projects... like Kristina's beautiful bookmark!) Our winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to the e-tailer of her/his choice.

W2CB #59: Blessings

Hi, everyone! Sybrina here with our November/December W2CB Challenge.

In November, thoughts turn to giving thanks. This month's words come to us from an Irish proverb.

When I count my blessings, I count you twice.


Here are a couple of blessings-inspired cards from our W2CB gals. And, as you can see from Jennifer's card, non-Thanksgiving, non-fall cards/projects are welcome.  :)

W2CB #58: Now for October Eves

Hi, everyone! Sybrina here with our October/November W2CB Challenge.  :)

For this challenge, our words come to us from Humbert Wolfe.

Listen!
The wind is rising, and the air is wild with leaves,
We have had our summer evenings,

Let's see what our gals have for us... and, from the look of things, beautifully-colored leaves were a key inspiration. This month, we welcome Guest I-Teamer Bharati Nayudu from Homemade Happiness. Thanks so much for joining us, Bharati! From your gorgeous inking to that shimmery ribbon, this card is just sooooo pretty!!!!

There are so many things to enjoy in October: admiring fall leaves, going on fun hayrides, drinking yummy cider, walking through haunted houses, conquering corn  mazes, eating pumpkin pie, and carving jack-o-lanterns. And, then there's that little-known holiday called Halloween. LOL.

What does this month's quote inspire you to create? Share your card/project with us for a chance to win our challenge. The winner will receive a $10 e-certificate to the e-tailer of her/his choice.
