Still More Christmas

Still more Christmas for me. I've been making lots of presents - perfect for The Latte Lounge Anything but a Card Challenge! The great thing is Rhonda is sponsoring an Anything Goes challenge, so you can double your entries!

We get formal pictures of Peanut done for her birthday every year. This year, she really wanted to hold the photographer's umbrel
la. I decided to gussy up the frame a little to enhance the photo. I used Tiny Tia from Some Odd Girl. I colored her to look like Peanut - she even picked the color for her dress and shoes! I added rose stickers and her name written in pink glitter (I've blurred this part out).

I'd like to enter the frame in
2. Crafty Creations Challenge #98 - photo inspiration I think the soft pink and white in the photo inspiration is reflected in the photo of Peanut.
3. By the Cute and Girly - children

I also worked on a project for my mother-in-law. I've been loving these sweater printed notepads that I found in the Michael's dollar bin. For this notepad, I got the matching cards. I made a paper folder to mount them both in. For the notecards, I just cut the plastic that they came in in 1/2 and taped it to the folder. This made a great holder for the cards.

I decided to go Greeting Farm on this project. I have a belated THANK YOU - I won I {heart} sweaters from The Greeting Farm during a blog hop. Here's the whole project, showing the front, inside, and back.
For the front, I colored the image with Copics and followed the sketch from Club Anya. I used DCWV paper and embellishments from my stash.
For the back, I went Anya meets Some Odd Girl, with this month's Odd Girl Freebie. I used the sketch from Anyone for Anya and more DCWV papers. The sentiment is part of I {heart} Sweaters.
I'd like to enter this project in the following challenges (in addition to the two sketches listed above):
1. Some Odd Girl - at least two types of bling - I used sparkly papers, sparkly ribbon, a silver flower, pearls, and rhinestones.
2. Fuzzy Wuzzy - Christmas plus an animal

I'm sure there'll be much more crafting from me right up to the big day.

Happy Crafting!
