Warm wishes

 
Kristina Werner is right (of course she is!) - card challenges get you out of card slumps! I had this Craftin Desert Divas Java Fox coloured and lying around for a few weeks with no idea how to put it on a card, but this week's MFT Wednesday sketch challenge was just the inspiration I needed:
 
 
Thank you Craftin Desert Divas for the wonderfully cute image :) (and the sentiment too!)
 
This card is going to Christina Hor's Cards for Little Hearts winter card drive - I encourage you to check it out!

Wishing you comfort and joy


It makes me so happy when a card comes together quickly. Bonus when it uses up scrappy pieces that have been lying around for a while! (Don't tell me I'm the only one who cuts up lots of die cut pieces and then don't know what to do with them 😅)

The "falling snow" on the top and bottom edges - it could also pass for coffee beans! 😄

Here is my attempt at a clean and simple card :)

Sending warm fuzzies


My little Lawn Fawn Sweater Weather paper pad is dwindling, but it was good to use up some of the scraps in this card; I even did a bit of paper piecing on the toque and scarf. I like how this one turned out :) As usual, those YNS Christmas chickies crack me up!

Let it snow...



The idea for this card came from an MFT sketch from a few weeks ago. I finally completed it after getting the YNS snowy mountains edge die (woot woot for sales). I can now make lots of fun winter scenes for those mischievous YNS Christmas chickies, yay!
