Catching up on a few cards...

We were without internet the last couple of days, so I was unable to post these as I finished them! Also had an eventful couple of days! My 7 year old daughter fell on a trampoline and broke her two front teeth, and of course, her adult teeth had already come in! So we spent a day at the dentist getting those repaired. Then I spent the day at the doctor and specialist yesterday with another ear infection, fortunately a LOT less severe than the previous one I had a few months ago. Life feels a little back to normal this morning, so I thought I would post these 3 cards I got made over the last couple of days, mostly before the craziness set in!

This first one used my Peachy Keen Stamps, one of the cute snowmen from Snow Friends seasonal cartridge (which was the first time I had ever used it!), a background cut from Lacey Labels (my first Lite cartridge - and first time using it!), Cuttlebug on the background, lots of inking, some doodling, a little ribbon, and a sentiment from the Pink by Design Winter Fun set. The snowman and the sentiment are also pop-dotted from the card for dimension.

This second one was kind of a struggle to finish for some reason. I'm still not sure I'm entirely happy with it, but I don't know what else to do with it! It is for a sketch challenge on the Cricut Circle blog. Anyway, used Lacey Labels for the scallop circle and threaded some ribbon through it with a button at the top. Did a little cuttlebug on an oval to fit in the center, and cut out the ice skater from Winter Woodland cartridge. Put ribbon along the side, added a sentiment from My Pink Stamper's Winter Fun set, LOTS of inking, Glossy Accents on the ice skater and the little corner pieces, and pop-dotted the skater and the sentiment.

The last one kind of came about a little different than I planned! I had originally cut the tree and added the Peachy Keen Stamp to go on the last card, but it just didn't seem to fit - so I added Stickles and Glossy Accents, and made another card for it! The tree was cut from Joys of the Season - and this card also has a little ribbon, lots of inking, and of course, a My Pink Stamper sentiment.

Thanks for looking - and hope you are having a wonderful Christmas season so far!
