Christmas Blitz

Happy Monday! I got some crafting in yesterday. I thought maybe I was going through withdrawal. LOL! The last few weeks have been so busy.
My first card works for two challenges. First up is the Kaboodles challenge. This was a recipe challenge. You needed to use 1 solid card stock (my red card stock); 2 patterned papers; 3 embellishments (Santa ribbon, buttons, and self-adhesive gems); and use a digital image (this cute little bear is from Dustin Pike).

The other challenge was a sketch challenge at Inspirational Card Sketches #35. What a great sketch this was. I thought it was a real challenge too!
So this made my fifth Christmas card for this month's Christmas Cards All Year 'Round. The challenge was a simple one. Make 5 Christmas cards during the month and anything was game. No restrictions. So besides the above challenge card, here's what I came up with.

Another Dustin Pike image was used on this card. Love that Martha Stewart edge punch!

This card uses a recycled Christmas card and star stamps from a Gina K set.

This one uses a Stampin' Up! set called Cardinal Christmas. I also used the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder on the background card stock and added some star brads as embellishments.

And last but not least is a little deer friend from Squigglefly. Aren't digital stamps wonderful!
I'm hoping to get some more crafting time tonight so I better move on. Thanks for stopping by. Please go to this post to enter my blog candy. I'd love to see you win the goodies! Have a wonderful week.

Happy inking,
