Challenge Time with Snowflakes and Knit!


I decided to play along with a couple challenges this week. I haven't had any time at all with Christmas quickly approaching and I feel like I am STILL getting caught up from being gone to be even able to think about making some Christmas cards but I had a little time, so I got down to it!

I played along with Curtain Calls "Sweet Snowflakes" and boy are the sweet. I just love cookies and I love snow so how could I say no :)
 I also paired it up with CASology's Que Word "knit". I liked the word and it just sounds soft and cozy. I didn't have anything in the way of stamps or stickers for this one, BUT, I did have really pretty piece of scrap crochet type of ribbon that I think goes perfect for knit.

I wasn't sure which picture I like better. I am trying my hand at adding more than one card to my pictures. I just love how these two cards turned out. I originally was only going to make one card but decided to cut the white cardstock with the snowflakes in half. I used a My Minds Eye Christmas stamp set to stamp the snowflakes in various colors. I then used my glue pad and re-stamped over all of them and added some of the Elizabeth Crafts Micro Fine glitter to all of the stamped images. I also added some of the glitter to my little snowflake wood piece to give an extra little sparkle. I finished off with some of my crochet ribbon and a pinky colored ribbon and then added  a Sweet Stamp Shop sentiment to the bottom.

I also made this fun little deer and snowflake card for fun. :)

Here are the Sweet Stamp Shop sets I used for the sentiments.
