Challenge #114 ~ Use A NUMBER On YOur Card

Greetings and a warm welcome to all of you.

This is a hard post for me, and a sad one too.  I have decided to close CC&CC.  It seems that it is getting harder and harder for me to enjoy sponsoring this blog.  I was going to spell out in black and what the exact reasons were, but as I wrote the words they seemed so harsh.  Let's just say, that when something you spend so much time and effort on ceases to be fun anymore, it's time to let it go and move on. . . .

I have had the wonderful pleasure of working with so may creative and generous ladies in the past 4 1/2 years.  I THANK THEM ALL!  We all know that we do this on our own time for the joy of creating.  It means a LOT to me that they took the time to support CC&CC and me.

AND TO ALL OF YOU!!!!  Your support of CC&CC week after week is heartwarming!  I thank you all for sharing your BEAUTIFUL cards with us. 
As our motto says, 
"Without YOU, WE wouldn't be here!".

So here we go for our final challenge.
Our sponsor is Fred, She Said.

 
They are giving our lucky winner a $10 gift certificate!

Let's take a look at the FAB creations that Judy and Diane have done for you for this challenge using images provided by Fred, She SaidBecause we received our images late, the other gals did not have time to create.  So a BIG THANX ladies for doing these!




Again, my thanx to all of you.
