A Tribute to Charlene Merrick


This is my second post for the day, scroll down for Paper Pretties post.

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 was one of the founding members of the CCEE Stampers which was formed in 2007.

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
  • Penguins
  • Purple
2. CASEing a card Charlene created from either her blog or her SCS Gallery

I went with a few of her favorite things for my card. Penguins and purple. Colored the penguin with copics and of course made her hat and scarf purple. Even added some purple stickles to the rim of her hat for some sparkle. Penguin and square are attached with dimensions.


f you would like to join us in this special tribute to Charlene please add your link to your card using inlinkz at the bottom CCEE Stampers blog.


          Thanks for stopping by!
