Swiftly Changing Seasons

(2nd post) I have two cards tonight. I'm back in my craft room after a weekend trip. I did manage to take my crafting on the road, which is how I made the cards from yesterday and this morning! That was interesting...

My first card is a fall birthday card. I used a Autumn Leaves from Stampin' Dragon Designs and Bentley bear with a happy birthday tag that were a freebie from Cardmaking and Papercraft. I colored them with my usual assortment of markers, although I'm leaning more toward Copics. The papers are from DCWV's fall stack. I thought it looked like the wind was blowing the balloons and the leaves and the birthday message.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1. Charisma Cardz #40 - autumn colours
2. Teddy Stampers #21 - fall colors

My second card takes us into winter. It's still highs in the 80s here, so I'm not quite thinking of snow! I used my SnowLady stamp. I colored her with Copics and added glitter to her flowers and snowy bits. The pale pink paper is from Robyn's Fetish, the green paper is from GCD Studios (it's two sided), and the argyle paper is from my stash.

I tried something new on this card. It doesn't have a fold. I put the sentiment on a tag that goes in a pocket on the front.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
3. Crafty Emma's Challenge #7 - create a tag

Happy Crafting!
