Wreath with train

I wanted to make a masculine Christmas card for a friend who is really into trains.  I saw something similar on another site and borrowed their idea.  I love the sharp  contrast of the red and black.  CAS on Sunday has a Christmas Challenge.  Through the Craft Room Door and Crafty Sentiments both have anything goes challenges.  Crafty Creations has a Masculine challenge.


This am I  finally  had time to  play for a bit.  I used the sketch at  Sketch Saturday for this snowman trio.  A Gem of a Challenge also has a Snowman/women challenge.  Crafting From the Heart and Craft on Your Passion both have their usual Anything Goes Challenge.

I bought this stamp last year and never used it.  That is  a habit I am strongly trying to break in the coming year.  I think it works  perfectly in the CASology Candle Challenge.

Glittery Snowmen

I simply love these  glittery snowmen.  There's  just something about white  glitter that makes me think snowmen.  I  love their happy smiles as well.  Crafty Sentiments has a  Glitter challenge this card  should work real well in.  Craft Rocket Challenges  has a Winter themed challenge.  Word Art Wednesday has an Anything Goes Challenge. Creative Knockouts has a Winter Wonderland Challenge.

I needed some tags for the gifts I wrapped today so I made these Christmas tree tags.  Pretty quick and not a lot of effort.  Tuesday Throw down has a Tag  Challenge aswell.

Christmas tree

Today I used the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches to make this CAS  card.  I'm not a real fan of tearing paper but it does  give a different feel to the card.  Simon Says Monday also has a Christmas Tree Challenge.   Inspiration Destination has their usual Anything Goes Challenge.

Today I wanted a  different but simple shape for my card.  I decide to make this a long skinny card.  I love these  little  winter birds from Imagine That.  I will use them in the Imagine That Christmas  Challenge.  Dream Valley Challenges has a  Winter Animals theme this  time.  Aud Sentiments has an Anything with a Sentiment Goes.  Through the Craft Room Door, Penny's Paper Craft Challenges and  Simon Says Wednesday all have Anything Goes Challenges
