Fun Friends


Hi!  I was asked to be a guest designer for Crafting by Designs for this week's challenge: Getting Ready for Christmas.  I make more Christmas cards than any other kind, so this challenge was perfect for me.  Here is my card for your inspiration:
Oooo . . . aren't they so cute??  I was looking for a ribbon to use as the divider between the two patterned papers and I came across this bit of chocolate seam binding that was just the right length!  I found what I needed AND used up some ribbon that wouldn't have been enough for much else.  Love it when that happens!!  Thanks for stopping by, I hope you will get a chance to play along with us at Crafting By Designs and get a jump start on those Christmas cards.

Challenges:
Pixie's Crafty Workshop #233--anything goes with snippets (my ribbon, and all the die cuts were cut from snippets and the blue dotted paper was a scrap.  Only the green card stock and the gingerbread man paper were from full sheets)
YNS #41--sketch
YNSSketch41
Open Minded Crafting Fun #6--season/holidays
Hiding In My Craft Room #254--super scraps Saturday
Crafty Catz #328--animal magic (the magical reindeer)
C.R.A.F.T. #367--inspired by a film (the cartoon "Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer")
Christmas @ Sweet Stampin'--warm winter clothing (the snowman's hat and scarf, and Santa's hat)
Sparkles #65--use 2 dies

Supplies:
Stamps: YNS "Holiday Snow Globe"
Dies: Repeat Impressions "Flip Fancy Die Set"; Verve "Flag It"

Hi Heather! I'm so with you about the making more Christmas cards than any others - besides which, I adore Christmas :)-

This is a lovely card, super use of snippets and I just adore the little characters - the paper you used goes so well too!

Heather, I do like your sweet images. and I really think Polka dot paper is the perfect addition for any card. Very nice use of dies. Thank you for entering the Sparkles Christmas Challenge.
