November Christmas Card Challenge

I missed last month's challenge - life just got in the way! I didn't want to miss this month - our final month - and Tracy posed a good one for us. We needed to do a OSW using a 6x6 piece of patterned paper based on this challenge from Verve Stamp's oh-so-talented Julee Tilman (Poetic Artistry). I ended up making my own as I wanted to keep with the snowflake thing going on here and couldn't find any paper with Rose Red snowflakes. Making your own patterned paper guarantees that your papers will all match and besides - it's fun!

Here's my cards:







Snowmen are one of my most favorite winter time images and these cuties all come from pcCrafters. They are pre-colored graphics that you can print out on your printer and size however you want. Cut, punch and mount any way you want too. The Sentiment is from SU from a set called Happy Winter from a couple of years ago. Card stock used includes Rose Red, Old Olive and Brilliant Blue (rapidly becoming a fave winter color for me).

Thanks for visiting! Tracy will be posting all the challenge entries so hop on over to her blog and visit and see what all the other gals have submitted - they are always great!
