CCEE1639 Christmas or winter card

This was Lois' final challenge for us this month: make a Christmas or winter card.
I am always happy to get to make a Christmas card early ahead of the rush. December gets so busy and too much that needs to be done, so there's less time to get those creative juices flowing. I had a good time with this one. I used a new die I had bought at a convention and found these two little mini candy canes in my stash of embellishments, so thought they looked rather cute on the card.

Please check over on the CCEEstampers blog site for other cards made by members of the team.

It's been a while since I have taken part in a Mojo Challenge card, so this sketch today looked like a great one to do:

I used Verve stamps, Chromatix markers, and so a double sided design paper for parts of it.

Mod Squad Challenge for the week and C4C355

The challenge for Mod Squad was to have a splat on your card. This yellow splat was to be a sunflower in my mental picture of this, but after it turned out looking like a splat, I left it as such. The stamps are from Kitchen Sink Stamps and multi-layering is a real challenge for me. But I have to say that the MISTI sure makes it easier.  You can find this challenge on the Mod Squad Blog.  I love fall colors.

Since it is a birthday card for a friend, it also works for the C4C355 challenge this week.

Paper Players Challenge 313

I made this card for this week's challenge over on Paper Players:

I used an old set from Stampin' Up that I have had for years, but still love for the fall season.
I masked off the section for the sentiment and used a variety of colors of inks for the leaves.
Fall is my favorite season, mainly for the cooler weather, and the beautiful colors.  The sentiment is from Layers of Color. I love using scriptures from the Bible on my cards as much as possible. as most of my cards I give to the Care Team at my church to send to those members who are needing prayers and extra care during times of trials or tribulations.

This week Lois is  asking us to Follow the List.  Include on your card:
One (1) animal
Two (2) layers
Three (3) colors (plus neutrals -- black, white, gray -- if you wish)
I used orange, green, and red for my three colors. For the background I inked up my embossing folder and spritzed it with water and smashed my paper in between. Then I stenciled the flowers in by using the negative side from scraps left over from a punch. I added rhinestones just to add festiveness to the card. I am a Leo so I love lions.

Please check by the CCEEstampers blogsite to see the team's creations for this challenge. Join in the fun if you like and if you add to CSC, please use CCEE1638 as your keyword. You can attach your card to your comment if you like over at the CCEEstampers' blog HERE.

Little Red Wagon 360

Browsing around for a challenge to do, I found the Little Red Wagon challenge this week was themed SCHOOL RULES. Here's what I came up with. This is a digital stamp from Sassy Cheryl designs.
I used Copic markers to color the image and loved the red and white gingham with this. I even had some little covered button brads in my stash that matched.

JUGS361 color week challenge

Here's my card for this fun challenge this week over at Just Us Girls.

I used a Sizzix die to cut this and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up.
