W2CB #71: Thankful to Have a Cup

Hi, everyone! It's the second Wednesday of a new month.... which means it's time for a new Words 2 Craft By Challenge.

When the calendar turns to November, thoughts naturally turn to Thanksgiving. This month's words of gratitude come to us from Sam Lefkowitz.

When asked if my cup is half-empty or half-full 
my only response is that I am thankful I have a cup.

Let's see how our gals interpreted these inspirational words, starting with Guest I-Teamer Vicki Robertson. Vicki shares her wonderful creations at He"artful" Validation of Vicki. Thank you so much, Vicki, for joining us this month! Your card is stunning, and we are thrilled you accepted our invitation.

Vicki
Tina
We hope you'll join us by linking up a thankful-to-have-a-cup-inspired card/project through December 4. Our challenge winner will receive a $10 e-certificate to the merchant of her/his choice. See you in the W2CB Gallery!

W2CB #70 Mid Challenge Reminder - Always Be

Bobbi here with this month's W2CB challenge reminder.  This month's phrase:

Always be yourself, unless you can be Batman.  
Then always be Batman.  Source Unknown

Batman is a selfless, flawed hero.  Kids of all ages (including my husband, a major fan) love him.  Many of my cards are donated to Cards for Soldiers, and they never have enough cards for boys.  I made an SVG and cut a bunch of these with my KNK Zing.
 Black base, gold oval, black bat, rounded corners - done!  Super cute and easy to mass produce.  Be sure to share your hero, bat or other project with us at Words 2 Craft By through November 6.

W2CB #70: Always Be...

Hi, everyone! It's the second Wednesday of a new month.... which means it's time for a new Words 2 Craft By Challenge.

When selecting October words, thoughts of Halloween often come to mind. The quote below seemed perfect for a month in which costume-clad kids and bat-infested haunted houses take center stage.

Always be yourself, unless you can be Batman.
Then always be Batman.  Source Unknown

Celeste and I each have a batty Halloween-themed card to share for a little inspiration.

Celeste

Sybrina

Maybe you will follow this batty Halloween route... or choose to go in a super hero direction... or make something encouraging a friend to be her/his very best. And, remember your entry doesn't have to be a card. Our team can't wait to see how these words inspire you!

As always, our challenge winner will receive a $10 e-certificate to the merchant of her/his choice. See you in the W2CB Gallery!

Always Be...
