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,
now for October eves.

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.

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. 

Celeste

Jennifer

Kristina

Sybrina

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!
