CCEE Friends

As I was making this card for our CCEE weekly challenge I couldn't help but think about how time flies from week to week. Not only that, but a year has gone by since this group started.

A year ago in May, I contacted Cindy (Mothermark on SCS) to see if she'd be interested in starting a group with me. A group that would challenge each other once a week. I was new to SCS and thought it would be a fun way to get to know some other stampers from around the world. Cindy was *on board* from the get-go and from there we asked 6 others if they'd like to participate in the challenges Cindy and I would make each week. We wanted to keep the group semi-small because we wanted to mail supplies once a month that each individual would be required to use. I had no idea that the group would last this long, or that we would become such good friends. After all, I was totally new to the on-line world...I'd never chatted on line, or been involved in any other way except for email and buying Christmas presents. Now I have several awesome stamping friends from all over the world. Way Cool!!!

Okay, enough of the reminiscing...on to the card and the challenge that inspired it. Cindy Haffner was in charge of the challenges this month, and challenged us this week to make a card with this MFT image and to use two different Decorative Papers. Kim was kind enough to send us the stamp set thanks to Cindy's inquiry. Thanks a million Kim and Cindy!!!! I used Art Nouveau - Avant Garde Dream Street Papers that I bought from my LSS. I love this stuff!!

The image is colored with copics, and for the corner treatment I just punched part of a circle out of the center.
