W2CB #54: Where You Feel the Most Alive

Hi, everyone! Sybrina here with the words for our June/July W2CB Challenge, which capture the joy of summer adventures.

Go Where You Feel Most Alive

Perhaps it's as exotic as travel to a foreign land, as exciting as a trip to the beach, or as relaxing as relaxing at the neighborhood pool.

Let's see where our gals feel the most alive.

W2CB #53: If You Can Read This...

Hi, everyone! Sybrina here with our a new W2CB Challenge.

As the calendar turns to May, the school year is coming to a close. Fittingly, we've chosen the following words to craft by these next few weeks.

If you can read this, thank a teacher.

While this quote may seem pretty straight forward, there are actually several ways to go with it.
  • DTers Celeste and Jennifer focused on the word "teacher" and made school-themed cards, with Celeste featuring the quote word-for-word and Jennifer referencing a beloved elementary-school saying. 
  • DTer Kristina honed in on the word "read" and created a card to capture the childhood joy of sharing a favorite book with a someone near and dear.
  • Finally,  I concentrated on the word "thank" and created a generic thank you card for the wonderfully talented and incredibly generous Kim Hughes (of Paper Smooches and Our Creative Space), who has been a card-making teacher/mentor to me through PS blog posts and sample cards.

So whether you choose to make a card for a school-related card/gift for special teacher, a child/grandchild or a thank you for a dear friend/mentor, we hope you'll share your creation with us. Our challenge winner will receive $10 to an e-tailer of her/his choice and an invitation to join us as a Guest I-Teamer for an upcoming challenge.

See you in the W2CB Gallery!

W2CB #52: The Promise of April

Hi, everyone! Sybrina here with our April/May W2CB Challenge.

With the colder-than-normal temps some of us have been experiencing, we are inspired by these hopeful words that come to us from Hal Borland.

No Winter lasts forever, no Spring skips its turn. 
April is a promise that May is bound to keep, and we know it. 

Let's see how our gals interpreted these words, starting with a gorgeous card from our uber talented Guest I-Teamer Cat Craig of Cat Luvs Paper.
