Merry Little Christmas

Happy Friday!!  It's time for another challenge from Jo's Scrap Shack.  As always, we are now an Anything Goes challenge and our sponsor for the week is Sunny Studio Stamps.  

Sunny Studio doesn't provide us with images to use, so the DT was free to use whatever images we wanted.  I decided to pull out one of my favorite snowman stamps to create this fun snow globe card:
 One of the reasons, I love this little snowman is how perfect he is for paper piecing.  The little hat and scarf are just the right size to use up some scraps which is what I did here.  The strip of paper along the bottom was made from scraps of the same paper pack that is now almost used up, yeay!!  I added some fine glitter along the snow line in the globe and then added dots of glitter in the air to look like it had just been shaken up.  So cute!!
    While looking for a different stamp set for another project, I came across this cute Llama set that I've had for a couple months and haven't inked up, yet.  Since I was having so much fun playing, I made another card using some of the same supplies:
I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Oh these are so cute Heather! Your llama card made me smile with that great sentiment and the sweet image! What a great way to use up paper scraps! Thanks for sharing your creations with us at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges!

Congrats on almost using up an entire paper pad. That's always so satisfying! I also use the covers sometimes, and strips of the cover would work perfectly for your card design.

Both cards are totally adorable! Thanks for playing with us at Pause Dream Enjoy Challenges!
