Glitter, Red and Green and Snowman...

I didn't dare go out to the stores with Black Friday being extended to today; so did some challenges. Instead of making an additional posts for followers/e-mail recipients, I'll combine the two cards on one link.

This card is my first - no second paper piecing. I tried doing one with pumpkins and a rubber stamp. Yeah, it's in the trash on some land field now. But this one, I just printed the digital image in the patterned paper that I would be using as my background and there you have it. I have to admit - I like it easy. :p My snow man is from Stamps & Smiles. I bought a few at a really good bargain and there's newer ones, so go check it out!

I love snow "folks" and this little guy is so cute, he gets to go into these challenges:

Creative Card Crew
- #38 Your Favorite things: Snowman and glitter
Something Completely Different - Red and Green Snowman
Crafty Creations - Christmas Theme (you get a bonus if you include cracked glass technique)

Each blog has samples from their DT that are bound to rock your world, so go check 'em out!

My next card is also an image from Stamps and Smiles. I used the sketch at The Fresh Batch challenge, which is incredibly adorable. After seeing the great sketches the DT provided, I couldn't wait to color my little cupcake and the tree with the cute little ornaments. I added die-cut ornaments and my ticket sentiment is from my favorite place: Allissa's Paper Town. She has new sentiments, which I had to get - ovals, vintage - it's amazing! You better head on over there.

Digi's...where've you been all my life? ;D

I always congratulate the crafters saavy enough to muliti-task Blog Challenges - BRAVO on the three-for-one! And your card is fantastic. Using the striped paper diagonally was a smart choice, it really makes the design pop. And I also really like the 3D effect you've got with your elements (popdots? I LOVE popdots!!!) "floating" above the page. Good work!
