As many of you may have already heard by now, our friend and fellow CCEE Stampers Design Team member lost her fight with cancer earlier this month passing away on the 2nd January 2014. Charlene has been battling liver and brain cancer for approx the last 12 months,
Charlene was one of the founding members of the CCEE Stampers which was formed in 2007 with our first challenge posted to SCS on the 2nd July 2007. In those days the challenges we did were just between eight stamping friends who had meet on SCS. It wasn’t until a year or two later that we started our blog and opened up the challenges to everyone else.
Charlene was loved in the stamping community and was very active on SCS and also had her own blog WhereMMsGather and My Creations. Charlene will be greatly missed by all of us here at CCEE Stampers as well as in the stamping community.
Today would have been Charlene's birthday so we have invited the past CCEE stampers to join us in this special tribute to our stamping friend by either.
1. Creating a card depicting one of the things she loved which included:
- M & M's
For my card today I decided to CASE a card I found on Charlene’s SCS Gallery which you can find here. I also included a Penguin and the color purple which were both things that Charlene loved.
Here is my card again this time folded flat so it can be mailed.
If you would like to join the CCEE Stampers in our tribute to Charlene, visit our blog (it goes live at 12AM) and include your card on the inlinkz link.
