Another Snowman

Here is this cute little guy one more time.  I think I have one more of these  printed and colored already so you will be seeing him again soon.  Today I used the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches. I turned the card the opposite  direction of their diagram but you still get the  general idea of the sketch.  Die  Cutting Divas has a  Snowman or Snowflake challenge.  Today instead of using my  silhouette to cut  my rectangles  I  got out my  Spellbinder dies and my Cuttlebug.  I need to do that more often because I have  quite  a collection of dies.  Sparkles Christmas Challenge has a  lots of glitter challenge.  Its  difficult to see but there is  coat of   sugar glitter on the  scarf on the snowman and there is some glitter on the  snowflakes in the dark  background paper.  Crafty Gals and Through the Craft Room Door both have an Anything Goes Challenge.

My husband was out of town last week.  I made this card and hid it in his  suitcase.  Today I am posting  it in the Crafty Gals add a Heart Challenge.  Just Add  ink has a pop up interactive Challenge.  The  heart in the center  will spin around if u  touch it.

Seasons Greetings

This afternoon I am cleaning off my  desk and trying to use  up all the  already colored images on my desk. This one I think is left over  from  a couple Christmas's ago.  So finally it has  found its place.  I used the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches for this card.  I had to change the direction of the card  but I am sure they will understand that.  To finish the inside of this card I added a couple layered Snowflakes and a  Christmas  Sentiment in blue to match the card for the Creative Knockouts challenge.  The camera makes it  difficult to read the sentiment but in person it looks  great. Brown Sugar Challenges has an Anything Goes  theme.  Cute Card Thursday has a Cool Colors Challenge.


Another snowman I colored a few days ago.  Today I used the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches to complete this blue and silver card for the Die Cutting Divas Challenge.  Simon Says Monday also has a  Chill Out Challenge.  Crafty Sentiments, Penny's Paper Craft Challenges and Aud Sentiments all  have Anything Goes Challenges this week.  Cuttlebug Mania has a Winter Wonderland theme as their challenge.  The Paper Shelter has Blue as their Challenge.  Tuesday Throwdown has a  Use your favorite medium.  I chose  Whimsie Doodles  Flakey  Snowman for this  card.  Cut It Up Challenges has a Snow Much Fun Challenge.

My sister  made  this card in  pink last week. I loved how it looked but  changed mine to  blue.  In my head  blue and snow just  go together.

Snow tubing

It was late last night when I finally went to sleep.  I printed several things and took them to bed with me to color. I didn't realize until I started putting this card together that I printed the image too big for the  sketch I had picked out.  Oh well I improvised and made it work anyway. This image is from Little Miss Muffett  and I will use  it in the Anything Goes Challenge there.

The  Following are Anything Goes Challenges:
Hiding in my Craft room

Snow Happens

This  sketch is from the Die Cutting Divas blog and is the challenge for the week.  Dies R US also has an Anything with a Die  Cut Goes Challenge.


Today I cut this  simple card from the  Silhouette Store for the Casual Friday Challenges Celebration

Saturday, January 7, 2017


This was a  quick and easy cut from the Silhouette store.  I think this cute guy is a perfect fit for the CAS ology   Cold Challenge.  Brown Sugar Challenges and Creative Knockouts both have an Anything Goes Challenge.

Christmas Bear

This is for the Crafting When  we Can Christmas Challenge.  I've got a  good head start on cards for next year.  I used the  sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches to  make this card.  I don't  come up with  good sketch ideas  so I look forward to  each sketch on Tuesday.

Glitter N Sparkle has a New Beginnings Challenge.   I wasn't real sure what to do.  Then I got to thinking about  my Son's new  baby he is expecting in March.  Today was a good day to get a  jump on the shower gift cards.  Crafty Sentiments also has a Something New Challenge.

Cocoa Penguin

Good Morning!  We are expecting a  tiny little  bit of snow here.  We so seldom get snow at all so when it is  mentioned we all get excited.  I printed this  little penguin smaller than I really wanted to but decided to use it anyway.  The sketch came from Sketch Saturday. I wanted the  image to really  pop so I went with White on White at the  top and a print at the bottom. Imagine That has a  Joys of the Season Challenge.  Cocoa  is definitely my  joy of  the winter  season.  Tuesday Throw Down has A Winter Critters Challenge.  Through the Craft Room Door and Penny's Paper Craft Challenges both have Anything Goes as their theme.

Thursday, January 5, 2017


Tonight I used the  sketch and color scheme at  Your Next Stamp to make this cute card. I'm sure it is a very  different take than most people on this challenge.   On the inside is the rest of the saying  "... then again so does insanity!"  The  theme for Catch the Bug is Make Me Laugh.

Tuesday, January 3, 2017


The Just Add Ink Challenge this  week  is Add an "N".   I wasn't sure what to do with that so I  decided to do this Nautical themed card.  I used the color scheme from Cupcake Inspirations.  Poppy Cream and Gold.  I think that is  going to be it for me tonight.  I feel a warm bath and a book in my near future.

Peace on Earth

This is  yet another card I wanted to do at Christmas but  never found the time.  I saw that Crafting When We Can  and A Gem of a Challenge both still had a Christmas Challenge I knew what I wanted to do. This is from the Silhouette Store and is called a tunnel card.  There are only two cuts so it is very simple.  The Peace on Earth is actually cut in the back piece and the light shines through the white on the front. I love how it looks.  It  only appears pink here because the only candle I could lay my hands on for the picture was red. There are also  several Anything Goes Challenges ending soon that I will submit this card in.

Stocking Trio Card

I  just love  these trio cards.  I wanted to make this  one before Christmas but never got a round  to it. Today I made it for the {Pin}spirational  Challenges Photo Challenge.  Pink and Green are  fast becoming my favorite  girly colors with all the  little girls  to soon be in my  family.  Crafty Creations has an Any Holiday Challenge.  In  the  Pink has a Pink Christmas Challenge. 

New year

I only managed to make one New Year's Day card this year.  But guess what?   It was one more than I made last year.  I made this  for the friends who we visited on new Years Eve.  We had fun  as we usually do. Since I made it I also want to enter  it in the CASology  "toast' Challenge.  Simon Says Wednesday and Word Art Wednesday both have an Anything Goes Challenge.

Snow flake Pop Dot

It has been a rainy yucky  start tot he new year.  I guess  if it means we  will have a rainy year ahead that might be a  good thing. Today  I spent trying to catch up on a few things and just  making the best of the gloomy day.  I made this pop dot card a few days ago and never posted it.  Today I want to post it  in the Tuesday Morning Sketches  Anything Goes Challenge.  I also notice there are  several other  Anything Goes Challenges that end real soon.
