YAHOO!!! had a crafty day today :)

I spent the day making cards!!!! I think my desire to craft has returned at long last :)
Sure hope it sticks around!!!
I got 4 cards made and will show you 2 now and then one on Sunday and one on Monday.
My order of echo park paper came today and I had to dive into it!! ;)

The first one is for :
CHNC: challenge # 32 "black, white, and one other color on your Christmas card.
clean & simple: sketch # 152
CAS-ual Fridays: # 14 " add glitter using glue dots"

I use a ton of glue dots so that was not a problem, but I only have white and pink glitter (don't like the messy stuff! lol) so I went with pink for my third color :)
I have always just stuck the glue dot to my paper before taking them off the roll, well couldn't do that this time so I found out 2 things: first they love to stick to your fingers, second they can be shaped into what is needed. So I used them for the hat and mittens. OK the mittins didn't turn out that great but it still looks cute :)

*forgot to put the glue dot box next to card when taking a pic, so you will just have to take my word for it they are there under all that MS pink glitter :)

paper: su cardstock, ep be mine (yup i used non- Christmas paper! ) snowflake embossing folder, misc: stamp and tiny black pearls for his eyes and buttons, oval nesties.

I was "lurking" around blog land (embarrassed to say I have been doing a ton of that lately)
and saw Jean's cards she has just made and liked the layout so much I decided to use this sketch for mine and Shelly's next "MOJOvate Me" challenge. So her it is girlfriend.........have fun!! I think our "friendly" challenge is working for me girl :)

Flutter By Wednesday's: sketch with butterfly, fairy, or angel
ok my butterfly is tiny but it is there on the mushroom! lol

paper: su cardstock, ep springtime, super cute stickerz from E.A.D. Designs (have to use some up to make room for the new! that's my story for hubby ;)
misc: pearls and sewing.

Your cards are cute. I especially like the little snowman. I think the embossing and your choice of DSP work really well together.

Wonderful use of the sketch, Rose. Thank you for your link and kind words. I also like your fun watermark.

Ooh, your snowman is all decked out in glitter! I'm not a fan of glitter myself so I understand, but you really did a fabulous job. I like the mushrooms on the second card too. Fun fun fun! Thanks for joining us at CAS-ual Fridays!
