Thank you for taking a look! As always, I look forward to next week's challenge.

The front of this tree decoration is painted (free-hand) using Copic pens. I then glued a scrap of snowflake paper to the back of the disk. Next, a cut-out of a winter scene was added to the front of the CD, in the center, and stickles were added to three of the snowflakes on the back of the CD. Finally, a small hole was punched using a Crop-a-dile, and I added the ribbon. Thanks for looking at this week's challenge entry!

I used an Inkadinkado clear stamp from the Ornate Christmas set for the sentiment, glittered with Martha Stewart's gold glitter. I then added white doilies to two corners and mounted it on gold shimmer paper. All was put on a red card base. Very simple, but I'm quite pleased with the results. I hope you like it, too.

The snowman is from Inkadinkado's Ornate Christmas clear stamp set. I tried my hand at coloring it in with Copic markers (harder than I thought - will have to work on keeping within the lines). The orange nose is penciled in using watercolor pencils and there are black stickle dots for eyes. After cutting out, it is matted on light blue paper embossed with Sizzix textures plates kit #5 - snowflakes. Buttons and satin ribbon are from the local fabric shop. I then used a darker blue mat and set it all on textured white cardstock. Here's a view of the inside:
My next card starts with the Inkadinkado Christmas Reindeer wood stamp. I switched to Anna Griffin watercolor pencils for this one, added a red satin bow around his neck and used stickles for snow. It is mounted on black shimmer paper then red card stock. Small white buttons were from my sewing box. I tied red bakers twine in each one before sticking to the card.
I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoyed making them!

Well, I made my second challenge card and I quite like it. It's very simple and easy (which was just what I needed). I hope it's enJOYed! (Get it?)
Oh, and everything for the card was from a Brenda Pinnick Christmas kit that I've had for so long (2007) and not really used it, even though it's one of my favorite kits.
I used foam squares to adhere the "joy" part of the die-cut. Here's a close-up, and hopefully you can see the dimension and also the glitter on the light blue snowflakes.
P.S. I am still working on the first two challenges, but it's slower than expected since I'm still not well. I'm still having so much fun, though!
