Thought for the day -

Hey Everyone...I am finally getting around to posting the 2 cards I've made for a couple of challenges. I tried to do this last night but just couldn't get anything to work. Guess I was a little tired after my 1st day back to work after the long weekend. The job is really starting to interfer with my crafting! lol. Hope everyone (in the US) had a wonderful Thanksgiving. It was just the 4 of us this year but it was actually very relaxing.

My 1st card is my 2nd entry for the Whiff of Joy Guest Designer challenge. This is the last week to get your entries in-all entries must be in by Dec.6 so you better hurry. Just make a card using the sketch, which you can view on my previous posting. If you would like to participate in this challenge you can post your completed card on Paper Craft Planet. My card is a Christmas card but as you can see not your traditional colors- I was going for a gold and woodsy look. My little caroler was colored using my Stampin Up watercolor pencils and blender pens. The pretty little gold tree and snowflakes are stickers by Martha Stewart.

My 2nd card is pulling double duty for 2 challenges. The first challenge is for Cute Card Thursday which asked that we make a card using lilac. I thought this would be a difficult challenge because it's not a color I normally use but I actually found some pretty good stuff when I went through my stash! I am also using this card for SketchSaturday challenge. I've attached the sketch and my card below.
I love all the Magno-licious stamps...this is whirling snowflakes and it was colored using my copics. (I really need to increase my supply of these but am waiting for Santa)The flowers and the happy birthday tile are Un-buttons by littleblackdressdesigns. The happy birthday stamp is from Stampin Up. That's it for today.

Love your second card for the WoJ GD call. What a fabulous distressed, but elegant christmas feeling it provides.
