Happy Winter Sadie

Well today Christine posed a special challenge for the team, and I actually found time to play-TWICE!

Go Lauren! Go Lauren! OK in all seriousness I don’t get to do challenges often so I’m happy with myself right now 😀

Here is the challenge: Theme: Snowflakes (you have to incorporate snowflakes somewhere on the item.
Can’t use: Christmas paper

No problem-o!

So I just used some pretty colors that I loved, some K & co paper (definitely NOT Christmas paper!) and some felt snowflakes, and I was ready to go!

I used circles as my focus, and the Snowfall set for my sentiment, and snow-flurry trail 😀 Lots of sponging too. I love sponging a colored bkgd these day.

The color combo rocks-IMO ;D)

This is Sadie & Pepper. Aren’ t they adorable? I love those two. I made spots on the dog when I colored it.

Just had fun with it.

Now my next one is called Yummy Wishes


This set is by Diane-Cookie Crumbs called Cupcake Occassions. This et basically gives you some cute cupcake options for EVERY holiday 😀 Really cute idea. Me, loving penguins, had to use this one.

NOTE: Upon typing that I am suddenly in shock as I realize I haven’t used ANY penguins this winter season YET! OMGosh! That is terrible. I need to get on that.

I love the lil penguin. I felt it would be a cute winter hello, or birthday card even.

I just punched some snowflakes out of my red layer, adding white snowflake dots. I layered with dimensionals so the white layer comes through.

I just used my snowflakes cuttlebug folder to emboss only the sky portion of my circle layer. Like a snowglobe, so sorts.

Then I had stamped/colored/cut my penguin. Added some chunky glitter (from Michaels kid section) and I was all set 😀

Easy peasy card, but I liked it.

Well thanks for checking in. We have a very busy day here to prepare for our New Year’s Eve party.

I want to wish you ALL a happy, healthy and SAFE New Year! I have lots to say on that, but will save it for my New Year post 😀 You know how long winded I can be so I’ll save it all up for ya.

Enjoy your the last day of 2008! I may be back before the end of the year to reflect.

Definitely see you in 2009-hopefully with a video. And of course more rockin projects!
