December 16th CardzTV Challenge

Hi everyone! I am so sorry this is just posting but life has been hectic around my house!
Our challenge at Cardz TV this time is to use card sketch #10,# 11, or # 12 with the theme of Christmas!

I used #12 with one of Mary's stamp sets, "Gingerbread Christmas" to create the gingerbread man, sentiment and the hot cocoa! What a great stamp set!

Go over to Cardz TV and check out all of the wonderful cards made by my team mates and then join in the fun!
Happy Holidays everyone!

Winter Card Sketch Challenge

This time around at CardzTV our challenge is for you to create a "Winter Card" using either one of the sketches below:

Here is what I have created using sketch # 7
What I love about using Mary sketches is that they are a great "starting point" to make me think "outside" the normal designs. I took the basic idea of the sketch and just "tweaked" it a bit to where I liked how it looked!
My snowman and sentiment were done using the stamp set called, "Winter Cheer" from Cardz TV and the Penguin was done using the stamp set" Just Chillin" from CardzTV. I used some embossing powder for the sentiment to give it a nice raised effect and also embossed the three small snowflakes around the sentiment.(Also from the stamp set).
My papers are from Recollections.I used my Cuddlebug and a Darice embossing folder to make the blue "dotted swiss" background.

Please check out all of the other great cards at CardzTV and then give our challenge a try. It is so much fun!
Have a blessed weekend everyone...
