Two cards and a weekend of crafting

(2nd post) Scroll down to see the winners of the digi paper packs.

Quick notes, my DT call is closed - I'll have an announcement this week! Don't forget my blog candy - see the link on the left.

I have two cards to share tonight. I've spent all weekend crafting and I still have SO much to do for the holidays. I signed up for another project this weekend even though I know I'm REALLY busy. "I'm just the girl who can't say no. I'll jump to volunteer." - name that tune :)

My first card features The Crafty Pad's Snowmen. It's colored with Copics and I used Stickles to make snow. The dark purple paper with snowflakes is from my Snow Fun Digi Paper Pack, and the other two papers are from DCWV. I added some snowflake stickers from Jolee and a sentiment sticker to finish the card.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1. The Crafty Pad #100 - anything goes
2. Simon Says - sketch
3. Stampavie #119 - snow
4. AI Factory #59 - winter
5. Sew Many Challenges #34 - snowflakes
6. Wags 'n Whiskers #42 - snowflakes

For my second card tonight, I hopped off the Christmas bandwagon. I used a Michelle Perkett image. My sister actually colored the image. The paper is one of my contributions to the new Stitchy Bear Stamps collab. The collab is free with a $10 purchase at the store!

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1. Michelle Perkett - make your own background papers. I don't know if this counts, but I did make them digitally.
2. Creative Cowgirl #2 - anything goes
4. Party Time Tuesdays #23 - anything goes birthday
5. Fab 'n Funky #51 - Happy Birthday!

Happy Crafting!

Jennifer
