Some challenge cards...

Coffee of the Day - Cinnamon Hazelnut

Whew - I have several cards to post, but was busy with some other things today and forgot that one of them had a time deadline today..... just barely got it posted in time.....

The first card is for several challenges - one at Saturday Spotlight (to use snowflakes), Fussy and Fancy Friday (winter), Little Red Wagon (to use snowflakes also), and the other at Whimsy Stamps (to make a warm and cozy creation). The papers are from the new Basic Grey Sugar Rush collection. They seemed perfect for a warm, cozy feel! The felt snowflake trim is from Martha Stewart. I used red shimmerz paint on the tassels of the hat and scarf. Frosted stickles cover the snow on the ground as well as the highlighted portions of the snowman. The card is 5 1/2" square, and the edges are inked in white craft, as is the main image matting (which was also distressed).

My next card was made for both the Sweet 'N Sassy Digi Day at PCP yesterday and the Stampin' for the Weekend challenge to use a sketch. I used the adorable new SNS digi Fenton the Frog along with some glittery KI papers. His bright green spots are painted with evergreen blingz paint. I added some fun buttons, a Prima flower, and this gorgeous Shirleys 2 Girls organdy ribbon. by the way, the S2G blog hop has been extended until Wed. Jan. 27! you can play along and possibly win phenom prizes here at this post. The card base is white, so it shows kinda funky in the scan.

My last card uses the adorable stamp from Shirleys 2 Girls called Mazie at the Beach. This card is being used for several challenges: the sketch from Mojo Monday, Charisma Cards (fruity colors), and the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge. Papers are again Basic Grey Sugar Rush, flower is Prima, and the neat orange twill is a JoAnn's find. of course there are little touches of shimmerz all over this card - her flip flops ( every girl NEEDS a pair of glittery pink flip flops - 'nuff said!! giggles!), the flowers, the peace medallion, and the shell.


All cards qualify for the Dare You to Digi Stamp Challenge of using buttons.

Check back tomorrow for the new Squigglefly releases! :)
