W2CB #61: Hope

Hi, everyone! Happy New Year's from all of us here at Words 2 Craft By!

Sybrina here with our first words of 2019, which come to us from Emily Dickinson.

Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul - 
and sings the tunes without the words - 
and never stops at all. 

Let's see how our gals have interpreted these words, starting with Guest Designer Cath Wilson. Cath blogs over at Inky Fingers, and we are thrilled that she is joining us this month. Welcome, Cath!

We hope you'll join us for this challenge. To start the year on cheerful note, there is a $10 gift certificate to an e-tailer of her/his choice to our challenge winner! (And, remember card and no-card projects are always eligible here at W2CB!)


How do you see Hope?

Merry Christmas!

All of us gals here at Words 2 Craft By send our wishes for the merriest of Christmases!

We hope you share a blessed holiday celebration with loved ones, enjoy a few delicious seasonal treats... and a find a few crafting goodies in your stocking.


Speaking of crafting, should you have a little time to create this holiday season, our current holiday-themed challenge is open through January 2.

Our challenge words come to us from Kid-Quote-kiddie Benjamin:
I'm an angel at Christmas time, but the rest of the year I'm the real me. 

My card for hubby was inspired by our "pup" that we adopted from a local  animal rescue non-profit last fall. Brody is half Russell Terrier and has definitely gotten into the holiday spirit -- starting with rolling in the tinsel when we were decorating the tree... while trying his best to not get into presents that aren't for him!


Be Joyful!

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.  :)
