The weather here has been so gloomy since  Christmas and it appears it will start the new  year that way too!  Monday is my friend Harriette's Birthday so I decided to make  something bright and sunny for her to brighten her day.  I also Intend to use this in the Seize the Birthday Silver/Gold Challenge.  Creative Card Crew also has an Anything  Goes  Challenge.

Joy Birds

Yet another Christmas card!  Funny how I've made  more Christmas cards after  Christmas!  Oh well! Guess I'll have a jump on next year.  This is the  progressive challenge at Imagine That. I really thought this was really cute and had planned to get this done much earlier. So much for plans.  I used the Sketch from Sketch Saturday.  I also want to use this in the Use any  Digi Challenge at Imagine That.  613 Avenue Create and Scribble and Scrap both have an Anything goes challenge.

Christmas Birdbrain

As has become  normal I am rushing trying to get my monthly challenges done. Even though I didn't  get as many Christmas Cards done, I'm not much in the Christmas mode.  I made this one to keep up with the progressive challenge at From the Heart.  I used the sketch from It Seems A Little Sketchy.  Sweet Stampin has an Anything Goes Challenge.  A  Gem of  Challenge  has  an Anything Christmas Challenge.

Snowy Kisses

I was unable to get  very much of my Christmas things  done  but I am determined to get back into the swing of things  with winter!  I made this pretty card for the Crafty Calender white on white challenge.  Word Art Wednesday has an Anything Goes Challenge.  MilkCoffee Challenge is make it sparkle.  Cupcake Inspirations is Winter Wonderland.

Gee has it really been 2 weeks  since I've posted anything?  I've been so busy with the  Holidays I really haven't  been very creative!  I am highly  disappointed in the Christmas things I wanted to do but never found time for.  But I guess there's always next year.  Today I decided to atleast  make an effort to complete a couple challenges.  This  cute image is from Catch the Bug and  should fit nicely in their Bingo challenge.  I used one of their images, snowflakes and glittery bling!  I also  used the Stella says Sketch to get them both off my long list.  613 Avenue Create had an Anything Goes challenge with a  Snowflake twist.  Eureka Stamps has a  glitter Challenge.  Crafting By Design has an Embossing Challenge.  Crafty Sentiments and Through the Craft Room Door both have anything goes challenges.  Repeat Impressions has a  Think Snow Challenge.

Snow Friends

This  little  guy from Squigglefly is just too cute.  I've used  him so many times!  Today  I want to enter him into the Squigglefly embossing /die cut Challenge.  I added   a   splash if  glitter to the snow and the  snowflake to give  it   that little bling.  Little Tangles also has an Embossing Challenge.
City Crafter has a  Glittering Snowflake challenge.  Crafting Station has a Snowy Holidays Challenge/

Snowgirls Christmas

There are  several non traditional Christmas Challenges this week.  I used the sketch from Stella Says at Catch the Bug. Craft on Your Passion, Die Cutting Divas, Love to Create, and Milk Coffee Challenges all chose Nontraditional Christmas Colors as their Challenge.

Cardinal in Snow

This card went together so  easily but I really like how it came out.  I but a 3D Zot behind the  bird to make him stand out just a little bit.  Then  used  red gems on the tree.  At the last minute I decided to give the trees in the background a  slight shade of green as well.

Fire Hydrant

My friend's Son has a  birthday this month.  he is a  volunteer fireman so I think he will like this  card. I will also  use it for the Seize the Birthday Anything Goes Challenge.  They give  you an  optional "topping" to  use if  you want.  This month is leaves. I chose not to use it.

Snowman Tealight

I saw this cute little  snowman tealight and thought how  cute he would be as a pin you could wear for the Holiday season.  He was  super easy  and went together real fast!  I want to use him  for the Winter Wishes/snowflake  Challenge at Clear It OutSweet Stampin  and  Glitter n Sparkle both have Snow Challenges.

Cookie Fairie

This is the last challenge for today! Then maybe I can get a  jump on  some of tomorrows  challenges.  This I s the sketch from Papertake Weekly.  It is a  bit  busier than most  layouts I use.  The image came from Paper Shelter and their  challenge is use metal.  The tiny "gems" are  metal of some  sort. Crafting By Design's  challenge is  Fairies.

Deer Hunting!

I  have several men  friends  who like to hunt.   I know I'm Late for  the actual open day for  deer hunting but  I think they will still  enjoy this card.  I do so few masculine cards, I think this will be a nice touch! Fan-Tastic Tuesday has a trees Challenge.  Creative Fingers has an Anything Goes Challenge.  Crafting When We Can has A CAS challenge. Dream Valley has a True Blue Challenge.
