A few challenge cards!

Happy New Year's Eve!
Wow can you believe it's almost 2009?! The years are certainly flying by as we get older...lol
I've got a few challenge cards to share with you today.
This first one is for an All That Scraps challenge that Christine gave us. We were to make a card with snowflakes but no Christmas paper. I found a little bit of this old My Mind's Eye and it was perfect for the challenge! I used another one of the adorable Gingersnap images for my card.
Stamps: Gingersnaps, Christmas Sentiments by AmyR; Cardstock: Close to Cocoa, Choc chip, Sage Shadow, WW and My Mind's Eye DP; Inks: Adirondack Black and Choc Chip; Accessories: Label Nesties, SU scalloped edge punch, Martha pearls, Ghost Snowflakes, Gingham Ribobn, Dimensionals, Copics
The Holiday Challenge Extravaganza #11 was to do Paper Tole. I love the look of paper tole but I am not good at cutting things that are too small. I decided to use this super cute image from H & M Stamps set called A Lil' Behind.
Stamps: A Lil' Behind; Cardstock: So Saffron, Bashful Blue Textured, WW and Jr. Varsity DP; Inks: Adirondack Black; Accessories: Label Nesties, Copics, White Brads, Glue Pen, Glitter, Dimensionals
The colour challenge on SCS was Bravo Burgundy, Handsome Hunter and So Saffron. To me it screamed Christmas at first....not sure why...once I got over the initial shock of Handsome Hunter...this is what I came up with.
Stamps: A Light Unto my Path; Cardstock: Bravo Burgundy, Handsome Hunter, So Saffron, Very Vanilla, Jr. Varsity DP; Inks: Burgundy, Black; Accessories: Long Curvy Rectangle Nesties, Silver Brads, Dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by today!
BEST WISHES for a Happy and Healthy 2009!!!
