The monthly challenge at From the Heart Stamps was Balloon Ride. I wasn't sure what to do with it so I waited til the last min. I decided to combine it with the Stella Says Sketch challenge. It turned out pretty well I think. Get Inky Designs challenge is Upward and Onward so I am entering this there as well.

What if Wednesday Sketch Challenge and the Party Time Tuesday Challenge so I could be caught up this week. I combined both of them and thought that card was quite cute.
Little Miss Muffett is a White out! All white background but a colored image. I textured the top background with a faint snow fall. The textured the bottom with a heavier snow fall. I thought it was perfect for this little guy to go sledding! I used the sketch from craftspot as my design. GlitternSparkles Challenges is also Snow. Inkspirational has an anything goes Challenge this week and IncyWincy Designs challenges is One for the Men! C.r.a.f.t. Challenges also has a snowy picture as their challenge inspiration this week.

Silhouette Online is Gift Wrap Elements. I made these tags for some early gifts I need to wrap before they are seen since they are too big to hide anywhere but in plain sight. GlitternSparkle's challenge is called Tag It so these should work there as well.

Repeat Impression's Snow Challenge I decided to try a telescoping card. I saw this on Pinterst and thought t was a cute idea. So here is my version of it. Clear it Out has a snowflake challenge so I will use it there as well.

Craft Spot's Challenge is a Pinterest inspired photo of mason jar and the colors pink and blue. I've been wanting to use my jar for a while. I made it a jar shaped card and added some sea shells I cut using some dies I bought several months ago and hadn't used. After cutting the sea shells I took them outside an sprinkled them lightly with sand to give them a more realistic look. With the Acetate over them I think they look pretty good. I will also use this card for the Party Time Tuesday Challenge this week.

Incy Wincy Designs has a Gratitude Challenge and so does Tuesday Throwdown and Parade Your Crafts I am going to use this card for all three challenges. I used my silhouette to cut the squares and to cut Be Thankful out. Again I had to use the trusty paint chips to cut eh words the size I wanted them. So far paint chips have not let me down. They always cut perfectly.
Little Tangles shaped card challenge. Little Tangles also posted their caring hearts drive. For this drive they make and send cards to the people living in nursing facilities who may not have families and wont receive cards or gifts or maybe even a visit for Christmas. I made 10 of these to distribute to residents at the local nursing home so that I can spread a little Christmas spirit there. I will also use this card at Curtain Call and CAS-ual Friday for their Casual Christmas Challenge. Silhouette Challenges also has a Holiday themed Challenge which I will enter.

Today I needed something quick and easy because I overlooked the red and white challenge at Incy Wincy. It ends today and I Had to think quick to come up with a plan. Well Here it is! There I had a bright idea that since it did say welcome why not use it for the Curtain Call welcome Home Challenge as well.

From the heart has a Sketch Challenge this week. I had to work had at making it work but with a little patience and determination I think I made something that will work. I also used the digital stamp from Imagine that so I can use it there as well. Then I realized why not use it in the Craftspot Color Challenge and Crafty Catz paper Piecing Challenge. Here is their sketch format.

digi Darla is fright night~ How much more fitting that this big ole Frankenstein shaped card. I cut him out with my cameo and the cut was a little difficult on the green paper, so I cut him out of white and colored him green. Then when I snapped the pic it looks more brown than green. Oh well he's still Frankenstein.
