W2CB #35: Small Hearts, Big Gratitude

Happy December everyone!

Now, can anyone tell me what happened to the other eleven months of 2016?

Turns out we miscalculated our November/December Challenge closing date. So, you still have a week to link up gratitude cards/projects. Hooray!

  • Maybe you're making a few festive holiday thank yous... for teachers, hair dressers, mail carriers... Well, you get the idea. 
  • You can share these cards/projects with us here at W2CB for a chance to win a Simon Says gift certificate and a Guest I-Teamer spot. 
  • We'll also be randomly selecting a W2CB follower to win an SSS gift certificate. If you're not yet a follower, here's a perfect time to join.
  • Click here or scroll down a little to find the original post.  :)

We'll be back on December 14 with a new challenge.

Until then, see you in the November/December Gallery! Happy craftin'!

W2CB #35: Small Hearts, Large Gratitude

Hi, everyone! Sybrina here with a quick reminder that there's still time to play along with our Piglet-A.A. Milne-inspired thank you card challenge.

For our original post, please click here.

  • Our challenges typically run until the first Wednesday of each subsequent month. However, I noticed that our linky collection is open for another two weeks. If my math is correct, that takes us to Monday, December 12. 
    • 'Tis the season, right? So, you have a little extra time to play along with this challenge. Plenty of time to link up a last minute thank you card.   :)
  • And, we have two Simon Says Stamp gift certificates to award! 
    • One will go to our challenge winner.
    • One will go to a randomly selected follower. 

So, we look forward to see your handiwork in our W2CB Gallery.

And, we'll be back on the next second Wednesday (December 14) with a holiday-season inspired challenge.  :)

W2CB #35: Small Hearts, Large Gratitude

Hi, everyone! Sybrina here on a Words 2 Craft By Wednesday.

This month's inspirational words come to us from the Hundred Acre Wood.

Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart, 
it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude. ~~ A. A. Milne

Let's take a look at how our W2CB gals interpreted these sweet words, starting with Guest I-Teamer Anne Slattery. Anne is a card maker and shipper for Send a Smile 4 Kids... and she makes the best kiddie cards. Welcome, Anne!







How will these words of gratitude inspire you? Perhaps you'll make a thank you card for a treasured friend, some place cards for your Thanksgiving dinner guests, a gift for a special neighbor, or a lovely piece of home decor.

You have until December 7 to play along... and two ways to win!

  • The challenge winner will receive $10 to Simon Says Stamp and an invitation to join us as a Guest I-Teamer. 
  • In addition, a follower will be randomly selected to receive $10 to Simon Says Stamp. Not yet a follower? There's never been a better time to join!

A chance to win Simon Says gift certificates... now that's something to be thankful for! Link up your card or project for a chance to win.  :)

And Our W2CB Winner is....

... Kathy Tanner!

We were just crazy for this CAS design -- which I've already "borrowed" for a card or two of my own -- and this gorgeous coloring. Congrats, Kathy! Please e-mail me at cards[dot]by[dot]sybrina[at]gmail[dot]com to make prize arrangements.  :)

Thanks to all our fellow puppy lovers who played along with our Happiness is a Warm Puppy Challenge. We hope you'll join us Wednesday for a new A.A. Milne-inspired challenge.

W2CB #34: Happiness is a Warm Puppy

Bobbi here with our October/November Words 2 Craft By Challenge.

October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month. We at W2CB are proud Mamas of a a number of rescue puppies. Check out our individual blogs to see our cuties!

Both of my family's Labs are from different Ohio rescue organizations. For me, happiness truly is a warm puppy!!

On to crafting fun...

We are happier than a puppy with a new chew toy to be including cards by Nandini and Marty in our gallery.   :)

  • Nandini is our Guest I-Teamer. Thanks for joining us this month, Nandini!
  • Marty is the newest member of our W2CB family. Welcome, Marty! 







Did you see a few Crazy Dogs on our cards? Yep, we're crazy about that stamp set. In addition to the challenge winner joining us as a Guest I-Teamer, she/he will win a Crazy Dogs stamp set courtesy of I-Teamer Annie. (Thanks again, Annie!) Already have a set, you could always give it to one of your dog-loving crafty friends.   :)

Link up your card/project for a chance to win. The gallery will be open through Wednesday, November 2.
