Heather's Sketch

The challenge over at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge is to make a card using this nice sketch by Heather and some Authentique paper if you have some in your stash.  I have quite a few pieces of this wonderful paper and used the red and white gingham on my card:

I have been inspired this week to make Christmas cards, I know late to start, but that's me, what can I say.  The sketch helped me put this card together and I'm so happy with it:
Isn't this little Polar Bear by Memory Box the cutest?
Have a great day and if you're in the USA enjoy that Thanksgiving feast on Thursday!!

Christmas Bird

This week's challenge at the Less is More challenge blog is perfect for this time of year; make a Christmas card and include a bird on the card.

We have a little bit of snow on the ground here in lovely Colorado and it's cold, did I say cold, around 17 degrees this morning.  It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.......:)

Here's my card:

The little bird is from Hero Arts, the sentiment is Memory Box and the DP is Authentique.
Have a lovely day and if you're like me be sure to start all that Holiday cooking, Yum :)

I am submitting this card to 2 challenges:

City Crafter - Hold It!

My new job is filling my time these days and I haven't made one Christmas item; until now that is.  This week's challenge at the City Crafter Challenge Blog is called Hold It!  We have been challenged to make or decorate a container.

I took one of my little round, plastic containers and jazzed it up with Christmas papers, stickers and ribbons.  And, a little bit of square and round bling.  Here it is:

Not the best photo I know.  My cat, Boo, decided to get in the way at the time.  He loves to get into my crafting stuff, especially ribbons :)
Thanks for stopping by today, happy crafting!
