A Little Spring in November - A Sketch - Anything Goes

I can't believe I did 2 posts in one day! I had a blast!! I used the sketch from FBW and I thought I would make it spring like. I did do some Christmas cards just before, if you want to check them out:) Anyhoo-I used the cuddle bug on this nice background paper that has some sheen to it and I used the cuddlebug for the corner cut outs. I used a punch for the edge in cute hearts. I placed a glitter salmon coloured background with a shimmer lilac paper and stamped the butterfly and embossed it with psychedelic powder. Added the pearls and the ribbon. Have a great week ahead everyone!

Winter Wonderland -Anything Goes - Have a Beary Christmas -Show Us Some Snow - American Thanksgiving or Christmas - Winter Wonderland - Winter Wishes

I like doing 5 cards still for Christmas Cards All Year Round but I have been lax this year in getting to them. There have also challenges did and missed. Such is life especially this year. My first and 3rd card I bought this new type of paper that is really cool as it is shiny and that appeals to me. I also always loved the gasoline colours (you know when you look down o the pavement and the gasoline shows these beautiful colours) that is on the 3rd card. All the cards have snow on them and snowflakes. I have had to deal with a few flakes in my line of work recently so I thought this was a good idea(hahaha). I used the cuddle bug for the backgrounds and also for the punches. The 3rd card was for a challenge-it was a -shoot forgot the word-you have to do a challenge that they drew and repeat it. My brain just took a nosedive here.  The 2nd card is my Beary Challenge. I know he may not be the cutest but I think he is and I love these types of stamps. The designer of these stamps is amazing to me. I used twinkling H2O's for the background and stickles as well. I just bought my snowman and had to use him here which I glittered up of course. I cut him out as well as the holly leaves which I embossed in red and green glitter. I added the snowflakes and the saying. I actually would love to see some snow right now as it might put me in the Christmas mood. My moody angel was a for a colour challenge-black, white an grey but I missed that one too:) I used the cuddlebug for the snowflakes and coloured them in with a black glitter pen. I stamped the angel and used white glitter for her gown. So I think all show some snow and winter coming our way:)
