Santa in Sleigh

Well I managed a  bit more  time than I thought today.  I made this  dimensional card  for the City Crafter Fly or Float Challenge and the Cuttlebug Santa Challenge.  Sparkle  N Sprinkle has an Anything Goes Challenge.  Since I have glitter  all over my desk I might as well  use this card there as well.


I was looking for something simple this am because I didn't have a lot of time to play.  I saw this  ornament and wanted to put it on this  embossed snowy background.  It also has a bow on  so it should fit nicely in the CASology Bow Challenge.  Crafting By Designs has a Here Comes Christmas Challenge. Jo's Scrap Shack and Through the Purple Haze both have Anything Goes Challenges.

Elf Gable Boxes

I made  15  of these  cute gable boxes for  all of the guests I will have for Christmas Lunch.  I filled them with various  pieces of candy. Simon Says  Wednesday has  a Gift IT challenge.

Caroling Snowmen

I went  a totally different  direction for the Die Cutting Divas' Bell Challenge.  Instead of  using something with Bells I decided to use the word  bells instead.  It actually  gave me an excuse to finally cut these cute snowmen and  use them.  Its  hard to see in this picture but I  used three small circle dies to make the snowmen.  then a  ribbon die out of another set.  Pinspirational Challenges has a Christmas Challenge.  Aud Sentiments has a Christmas with a Sentiment Challenge.  Penny's Paper Craft Challenges also has a Christmas themed challenge.  Word Art Wednesday has an Anything Goes Challenge.


For the  Glitter n' Sparkle  Anything Goes challenge I decided to make this dimensional card.  I love the sparkly snow flakes both behind and  in front of the snowman!

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.

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.
