~Sew Many Cards..Challenge #14..SPONSORED BY THE CUTTING CAFE~

Welcome to this weeks challenge at Sew Many Cards!!
We would love for you to join us in welcoming The Cutting Cafe' to Sew Many Cards.
Regina Easter has graciously signed on to sponsor Angelas' awesome company!!
We'll be seeing Regina and The Cutting Cafe' sponsoring one of our challenges every other month!!!!
How exciting is that!!!
Between our unbelievable images here at Sew Many Cards and Reginas' awesome files and stamps, you couldn't have asked for a greater combination. Please read all about Regina and The Cutting Cafe' below!!!
We hope that you'll join us in this weeks challenge!

Hello my name is Regina Easter. I have 4 wonderful children and an awesome supportive husband. I have for as long as I can remember loved all the aspects of creating things with paper and drawing. So it was only fitting that I decided to open up The Cutting Cafe' and I am loving every bit of this new venture.The Cutting Cafe' offers affordable Printable Stamps and Cutting Files. The Cutting Files which are basically just like templates are files that you Print out using your home printer, Cut, Assemble and then Embellish.....Very Easy.....The Cutting Files also come in the format where you can cut out the files using some of the latest Machine Cutters like the Pazzles Inspiration, Bosskut Gazelle and Cricut (with Scal software). The Printable Stamps are just that, images that are sent to you through email that you print out using your home printer. After the images are printed out, you can just color them in like you would any other stamped imaged...One great thing about the Printable Stamps and Cutting Files is that you no longer have to worry about finding space to store all of your stamps....You can keep them all in a folder in your computer and use over and over again.

NOW FOR THE CHALLENGE!!!....
This week our Design Team had to make a Christmas themed project or card using a Sew Many Cards image and a file or image from The Cutting Cafe'.
We'll be using images from The Cutting Cafe' sets ALL ABOUT CHRISTMAS and BULBS FOR THE HOLIDAY.
We're asking for all of you to make any Christmas themed project or card using a Sew Many Cards image and we would love to see you use an image or file from The Cutting Cafe'.
Please use Mr. Linky to submit your challenge entry. If any problems, feel free to email me, JERI at jerisplace@cox.net and I'd be happy to take your entry that way. DEADLINE FOR ALL SUBMISSIONS IS NOVEMBER 30th at MIDNIGHT!!! So don't wait....get those tools out and start working!!!! Can't wait to see what you come up with!!!!

~Special THANK YOU to all of our ARMED FORCES...AT HOME AND ABROAD~

Happy Veteran's Day to all our Armed Forces at home and abroad!
To the USA military and to our overseas military brother and sisters!!
I thank each and every one of you who have given to our services, past and present, so that we at home can be protected and have the freedoms that we hold so closely today. You give of yourselves without anything in return, sacrifice the life that you know for strangers that you don't. Leaving family for months and years at a time, for families that you have never met! I don't think anyone could ever thank you the way you deserve to be thanked!

We shouldn't just acknowledge our military men and women a few days out of the year, but every day of the year!!
My family thanks each and every one of you from the depths of our hearts!!!

THANK YOU and MAY GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!!!

In honor of Veteran's Day, Angela of Sew Many Cards, has made a special image to celebrate such a deserving holiday. If you're interested, please visit our Freebie page to get your image. This image will forever be free, as our men and women fight to keep us forever FREE!
