Snow!

It snowed here last night. While I am not ready for this (still have to store the camper, put away the patio stuff, etc.), it did put me in the mood to make Christmas cards. That, and the fact that a local store wants to buy some seasonal cards! So I figured I'd better get creative. And nothing better to do that than look at a few challenges.

First up is a card I designed for Dynamic Duos and Just Us Girls.




I combined these two challenges and made this card:


I was excited to find that a SU punch I have fit perfectly with this SB die I picked up last night! Can't wait to play with that some more.

Over at 52 (Christmas) Card Throw Down they had a black, white, and gray color challenge. Here is my card for that.



And finally, a snow one. I made this for a challenge but never posted it. 


Thanks for taking the time to look!
